It Keeps Happening: Take That To Contribute 'When We Were Young' To 'The Three Musketeers'

Can someone please tell us who Take That is paying off in Hollywood to infiltrate their shitty brand of manufactured pop tunes for middle aged women into tentpole movies? Matthew Vaughn inexplicably decided to use "Love Love" in "X-Men: First Class" and now another big period movie -- that admittedly is already throwing all logic out the window -- is letting Robbie Williams and co. warble.

Can someone please tell us who Take That is paying off in Hollywood to infiltrate their shitty brand of manufactured pop tunes for middle aged women into tentpole movies? Matthew Vaughn inexplicably decided to use "Love Love" in "X-Men: First Class" and now another big period movie -- that admittedly is already throwing all logic out the window -- is letting Robbie Williams and co. warble.

THR reports that Paul W.S. Anderson's "adaptation" of "The Three Musketeers" will feature "When We Were Young" the lead track off the band's "Progressed" EP. And this is about the time when all the fans will remind us about how many records Take That has sold in some feeble attempt to justify their talent. Just remember folks, at one point Vanilla Ice sold millions of records too and even got his own movie. It doesn't mean he was a great artist or even talented.

Anyway, the single for "Where We Were Young" (not to be confused with The Killers tune "When You Were Young") -- which starts out with the pure poetry of these lyrics: "When we were young the world seemed so old/Careless and cold/We did what we were told in our lives" -- will be released in August to coincide with the film's German premiere on September 1st. As for the rest of us, bring your earplugs when the film opens on October 14th. Oh yeah, and in case you missed it, check out the amazingly ridiculous "Love Love"/'First Class' music video below and while you're there you can listen to "When We Were Young" as well. It's pretty bad.
