About Glorious

"Glorious" is a song released by Swedish singer-songwriter Andreas Johnson in 1999. It is from Johnson's Liebling album on the WEA record label. The song was a mixed success chart-wise, as it remained in low positions in the Netherlands, Switzerland, New Zealand and Germany. However, the song peaked within the top ten of the charts in Italy and the United Kingdom. The song was also used as the main theme for Sky Sports' Premier League shows – Ford Super Sunday and Ford Football Special from August 2000 to May 2001 The song was later used on television advertisements for Vauxhall, Volvo, and in 2004, for Nutella, thus allowing the song to re-enter the French Singles Chart at a peak of number 16, although the song was only number 50 in its first release, four years earlier. An uncredited instrumental segment of the song was used in the movie The Proposal, after the ceremony. The first three melody lines that are sung are identical to the first three sung melody lines of "Two Minute Warning", a song by Depeche Mode (composed by Alan Wilder) in 1983.
