Take That’s return to music in 2010 has been voted the best comeback of all time, pipping Adele’s recent return to music in November 2015 and David Bowie’s in 2014.

Known for regularly dipping in and out of music, Take That’s comeback featuring bad boy Robbie Williams in 2011, topped a list of the country’s favourite musical returns defeating Adele, David Bowie, Kate Bush and Fleetwood Mac.   

However, Adele didn’t entirely give up her crown with her most recent album 25 voted the best comeback album of all time, ahead of Beautiful Day, Take That and David Bowie’s Next Day.

Almost half of all women surveyed (42.55%)  by Mastercard voted for Take That as the best comeback artists while men voted for Kate Bush, with 1 in 5 favouring the Wuthering Heights singer’s revival.  

Dancing Queens across the country are desperate for ABBA to come back (30%), with the Swedish foursome voted the artist we’d most like to see singing together again, but Hanson fans seem few and far between, with the boyband finding themselves at the bottom of the list.  The nation showed their age with over 35s calling for an ABBA comeback, while 18 – 24 years olds were most interested in seeing Oasis back together.  

Freddie Mercury is the nation’s most missed star with almost half of all Brits (47.6%) dreaming of a Bohemian Rhapsodyreunion. Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson completed the top five.

As a nation, Brits are a fan of old school dance moves with 1 in 5 wanting to bring back the Twist and The Time Warp made famous by The Rocky Horror Picture Show in 1973. We’re less interested in bringing back modern dance moves like Willow Smith’s Whip My Hair or viral dance craze, The Harlem Shake.
