  1. Rise

    "Rise" is a popular single by Gabrielle. It was her second number one single in the UK. The song was the title-track and second single from her third studio album. Written by Gabrielle, Ollie Dagois, Ferdy Unger-Hamilton and Bob Dylan and produced by Johnny Dollar, the song reached number one on the UK singles chart for two weeks in January 2000. The song has sold 460,000 copies in the UK as stated by the Official UK Charts Company. The song was the 8th best selling of 2000 in the UK. "Rise" is notable for a rare authorised use of a Bob Dylan sample. It takes extensively from his 1973 song "Knockin' on Heaven's Door", which was produced for the soundtrack of Sam Peckinpah film Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, and Dylan liked the song so much that he allowed Gabrielle to use the sample for free. The song has been covered by Jamaican singer Mr. Vegas.
