Who asked for this?
Even I am not here for this.
A dance album by QUEEN FAYE on the other hand...
LSL crying into her Dubai-based Jacuzzi as we speak.
It looks like an advert from Freemans catalogue.
I keep thinking it’s the Absolut font.
This is a lot better than this new album will ever be.
Lisa clutching to her fan as we speak
What’s with her eyes? She looks like she just died. Just slipped away during the photoshoot... she’s with the angles
Naming your first solo single “On my own” is a bit on the nose, isn’t it?
at this thread (already).
Assuming there will be more of the Claire attempts Karen Carpenter balladry from the Handclaire album.I don't want any of that bleeding into the next Steps opus, which I now guess will be further off than I previously imagined.
This project has a shelf-life of 6 weeks at BEST. That’s less than a half-term in LSL’s dance school.
You would think that but the single is on Monday and the album not out until NOVEMBER.
It’s certainly not going to go B LIST AT CAPITAL that’s for sure
I’ll hold out for My Wildest Dream: 8 Stone Deluxe Edition.
Pre-order the album now for priority access to live dates (which almost certainly won't go ahead) and a SCENTED CANDLE
I wonder if she’ll break into the Yankee Candle Top 40.
I also love the revisionist history that Scared Of The Dark was a #1 single.
Scented candle? I wonder what Claire's scent will be?
I'm guessing sausage roll.
JO MALONE FOUND DEAD.
It's pleasant enough but it really sounds like something else that I can't put my finger on. Kinda old-school X Factor single with those cliché lyrics. The production is a bit dated though but she sounds nice on it and she's not screaming like a banshee.
It's no Lately, that's for sure, but it could have been worse.
I can hear her nose wrinkling.
How can it be “literally beyond your wildest dreams” when it’s literally your dream YOU STUPID CLAIRE
Its not bad. It's what was expected really.
Claire is guilty of two of the things that irritate me most in pop. One is the way she screeches the letter 'h' at the start of any word beginning with the letter (I can't listen to the chorus of LGAHOMH) and the nose thing. Thanks for the reminder :-(
OK after a few listens I am really quite liking this
The opening few lines sounds like she is going to go into 'I don't get how you get here, just get here if you can..' but then she goes into Kym Marsh esque MOR angst for the chorus which is right up my street
23 on iTunes
without BBC Breakfast aswell
I quite LIKE it in a 2001 Steps b-side way.
What it totally highlights is how much she contributes to the backing vocals, as well as lead vocals in Steps. It's really evident in the second verse.
I think it's great.
Here's the video featuring RAW EMOTION in the bridge
I hate to be predictable but it's very Eurovision, isn't it?
I can practically see the golden shower over the final chorus and the 'shock' 8 points from the international televoters at the end of the night.
It would definitely be the entry I love that nobody gives a shit about on here.
I utterly love this.
Gorgeous nineties power pop realness
The chorus really is infectious. Loving it
Shame on you for fat-shaming Our-Claire with your snide references to McDonalds
Oh that bit is completely ridiculous. The range darling, surely treading the boards beckons. Then there is the rough cut to a mildly tipsy Claire happily wandering back from the bar on holiday that makes it even more odd.
It does sound very much like a Eurovision version of an X Factor winner's song. Lyrical clunkiness aside it is fine.
Did Claire ever try the musical theatre route in the dark days? I'm quite surprised if she didn't, thinking about it.
she thought about it but didn't have the confidence hun, xoxox
I'm enjoying the Love Me Like You Do beat.
Was that when she was (willingly) in the dungeon with her feeder husband?
