Man

Album: Progressed (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from British Pop group Take That's first EP Progressed. It actually is two songs stitched together. Gary Barlow already had the verse and chorus and Mark Owen came up with the spoken word part. Barlow said on his website: "It was a lot of fun to make this track and continues our theme of evolution and the question it evokes."
  • A snippet of this song was played in the intro music before Take That entered the stage on their Progress Live tour.
