“Babe” is a song by boyband Take That. It was the fourth single from Take That’s second album Everything Changes. Written by Gary Barlow, it features Mark Owen on lead vocals. Released on 13 December 1993, it became Take That’s third single in a row to go straight to number one in the UK Singles Chart, knocking Mr Blobby’s self-titled novelty single from the number one slot in the process. The following week however, Mr Blobby’s single climbed back to number one, denying Take That the Christmas number one place. The song has received a Platinum sales status certification for sales of over 600,000 copies in the UK. The song was featured in the Only Fools and Horses episode “Fatal Extraction” broadcast on 25 December 1993, the day that the song had been knocked off number one in the singles chart.
