Listen to Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman’s ‘Something Stupid‘
The fourth season of the AMC drama series Better Call Saul is proving it still has one of the best TV show soundtracks around. After all, this week’s episode included music from artists like Lola Marsh, Pixies, Burl Ives, and The Breeders.
My favorite track on Better Call Saul Season 4, Episode 7, “Something Stupid“, though, was the Robbie Williams, Nicole Kidman song ‘Something Stupid‘.
That song was released in 2001 as a single from Robbie Williams’ album Swing When You’re Winning, and became a surprise number one hit in the United Kingdom.
The track was eventually certified gold in eight countries, also giving Williams his fourth top 10 single in the UK, and reminding us again that, yes, Nicole Kidman can actually sing. (You can listen to Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman’s ‘Something Stupid‘ in their music video below).
‘Something Stupid‘ also charted in a slew of other countries, giving Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman a number one hit on the Eurochart Hot 100, followed by a number one hit in New Zealand, Portugal, Poland and Scotland.
Who wrote and originally released ‘Something Stupid‘?
‘Something Stupid‘ was written by C. Carson Parks, and was originally released by Parks and his wife under the names Carson and Gaile.
The most well-known version of the song, however, is the 1967 recording by father and daughter duo Frank Sinatra and Nancy Sinatra. That version also made it to the number one spot in the United States on its release, and has been the ‘gold standard’ of the song ever since. Well until Robbie and Nicole showed up, of course.
