Westlife- The Love Album
United States- This album was not released in the US and no singles were also heard there.
United Kingdom- Westlife released this album with cover songs “The Love Album”. Only one single was released from the album. Check below what it is:
The Rose- #1
Westlife at least reached number 1 with that only single released. It was the Bette Midler original “The Rose”. It became their 15th number 1 single in the country.
Since there’s only one single from the album and in fact, a covers album, I will share the song along with lines from it and check it below:
It’s the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It’s the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
Westlife- Back Home
United States- It seems the guys gave up breaking the American market and this album and no singles were released from it.
United Kingdom- Westlife released two singles from the album and continued to score a string of top 10 hits. Check what those songs were:
Us Against the World- #8
Westlife scored another two top 10 hits this time. It added to their string of top 10 hits which already totalled to 23 including the two songs from the album. “Home”, a Michael Buble original, was the biggest hit at number 3.
The single “Home” peaked at 3rd so it’s the most successful single from the album, but what I am sharing is “Us Against the World” being an original song.
Us Against the World (Chorus)
Cause it’s us against the world
You and me against them all
If you listen to these words
Know that we are standing tall
I don’t ever see the day that
I won’t catch you when you fall
Cause it’s us against the world tonight
Westlife- Where We Are
United States- Westlife didn’t mind releasing the album in America and singles wasn’t released there.
United Kingdom- Westlife released just one single from the album again. Still, it managed to reach the top 10. Check that song below:
What About Now- #2
When the song reached the number 2, Westlife scored their 24th top 10 hit. It is one spot short to number 1, and if it did, it should have been their 16th, but it failed to do so. “What About Now” was first recorded by American band Daughtry.
Since “What About Now” was the onpy single released from the album, I am sharing that song below:
What About Now (Chorus)
What about now? What about today?
What if you’re making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love never went away?
What if it’s lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it’s too late, what about now?
