Yesterday we asked Popjustice's Twitter followers if there was anything they fancied knowing about Robbie's 'Bodies' single. Here are their (/your) questions with some answers.
karrade asks: robbie single.. is it beautifully written and produced but the vocals are cheap sounding?
andrewastewart asks: Is it as good as Rudebox?
miss_julia asks: what percent do you say "yes" to it? 100, 200 or 1,000,000%?
textsterSound like a Trevor Horn record!?
Not any specific one (although the middle eight did remind us a bit of Seal's 'Crazy'.)
ptm71 asks: Is it Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat?
No, not really, no.
RazorMouse asks: Is it any good?
JanVH asks: Is the new Robbie danceable or does it need a Freemasons remix?
It's not danceable, a Freemasons remix probably wouldn't work.
tidusin asks: it will have a Stuart Price remix? Don't know.
MRobDC asks: does it suck as much as his past few singles?
His last single was 'She's Madonna' so your question makes no sense, sorry.
joao92 asks: like most robbie williams songs does it suck?
dillangandhi asks: Should he have bothered?
RandyFr asks: Does it sound like classic Robbie Williams cr*p or rather like classic Robbie Williams amazingness?
People who like classic Robbie Williams crap will probably like it but people who like classic Robbie Williams amazingness will probably like it too.
sodthemachine asks: is it a navel gazing whine about how he can't settle down and find love?

It's not as shit as 'Sin Sin Sin'.
