"Make Me Pure"
"Advertising Space"

"Make Me Pure" is a song by British pop singer Robbie Williams, released as the second single from his album Intensive Care in late 2005. It was written by Robbie Williams, Stephen Duffy, and Chris Heath.[1] It was first released in New Zealand and Australia only as a promotional single intended to advertise the album. A video was shot with Williams performing in a garage, however, its performance was poor with focus on Williams' debut single "Tripping" from that album. It was featured on physical copies of the single "Tripping". A physical CD single was released exclusively in Mexico.



The song deals with Williams asking God to make him pure—later in his life. The chorus is a translation of a line of Saint Augustine of Hippo, Da mihi castitatem et continentiam, sed noli modo! Given the singer's previous use of James Bond as an inspiration in Millennium, it may be significant that Bond quotes this line to himself in the novel Goldfinger, in the form "Oh Lord give me Chastity. But don't give it yet!".

Chart Success

"Make Me Pure" reached number-fifteen in the Netherlands, although it had never been released as a single. Due to airplay of the B-side song of the single "Tripping", it reached the Dutch Top 40, when at the same time "Tripping" and "Advertising Space" were Top-40 hits. In Mexico, the song was released between "Advertising Space" and "Sin Sin Sin" to fill the gap left between these singles, the song was very popular on radio reaching the twenty-seven, although video airplay was not very good the track reached number-nineteen on Digital Sales.
