Boyzone- By Request / Back Again… No Matter What / Brother: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Boyzone- By Request (compilation album)
United States- Boyzone haven’t had a top 10 single from the album. Those singles were not released so they were not eligible to chart.

United Kingdom- Boyzone again has proven something with their chart power in the country. Four singles were released though, the other two singles were just included in the compilation album in some countries. Check what singles made to the top 10:
When the Going Gets Tough-#1
You Needed Me- #1
When You Say Nothing At All (Ronan Keating song)- #1
Everyday I Love You- #3
Four singles from the album again made it to the top 10. Though “When You Say Nothing At All” was sang solely by Ronan Keating, it was counted since it was included on the Boyzone album. Aside from that song as a number 1 hit, they topped the charts with the remakes of “When the Going Gets Tough” and “You Needed Me”. In total, the guys totaled 17 top 10 hits and 7 number 1 hits after this album.

The first three singles were remakes and what I am sharing is the original song “Everyday I Love You”. Check and enjoy the song below as shared:

Everyday I Love You (Chorus)
Cos I believe that destiny
Is out of our control (don’t you know that I do)
And you’ll never live until you love
With all your heart and soul.

Boyzone- Back Again… No Matter What (compilation album)
United States- This compilation album by Boyzone didn’t manage to be released in the country and no singles were released and even charted.

United Kingdom- Boyzone scored two singles from the album. But only one single managed to access the top 10. See that song:
Love You Anyway- #5
“Love You Anyway” is the comeback single by the guys and made it to the top 10. It was considered their 18th to do so.

Since only one single charted inside the top 10, I would be sharing that only song which is “Love You Anyway”.

Love You Anyway (Chorus)
It’s unbelievably hard to love you,
But I love you anyway.
I’ve been trying too hard not to love you,
But I love you anyway.

Boyzone- Brother
United States- This album remained unreleased in the US, so no further singles were released.

United Kingdom- Boyzone was able to score another hit single in this album. Two singles were released but check below what made it to the top 10.
Gave It All Away-#9
Boyzone apparently scored another top 10 single from the album which was “Gave It All Away” at number 9. It was their 19th ever to do so.

“Gave It All Away” was able to reach the top 10, check the song below as I am sharing it:

Gave It All Away (Chorus)
why hy hy I lay my heart down on the floor
I showed you love, you wanted more re re
but I gave it all away (cry ry ry ry cry ry ry ry)
