So where would you class the rest of Steps?
Faye and the rest.
The somewhat painful long roll out continues:
The original is very dreary and not especially Christmassy bar a few bells, but the remix strangely has different lyrics and a little more life.
Her tour started tonight and she’s only gone and thrown in #10 H & Claire smash hit All Out Of Love.
It’s not like she has a lot more HITZ to choose from...
I imagined she would stick to mainly ballad versions of half a dozen or so Steps numbers and a cover of two for some familiarity. Presumably All Out Of Love has been slowed down anyway.
Not even a bit (well, maybe a BIT)
Less helium, more plain old shouting.
She threw in an acoustic take on Deeper Shade Of Blue for good measure.
OMG wish I had tickets for this now, I’ll wait on the arena tour next year
Someone please check in on @monsta to make sure he’s still alive after the Glasgow gig
I’m fucking SCALPED.
What a fucking show. Utter perfection. I can’t at All Out Of Love.
The new album tracks are amazing BTW. There’s a great uptempo one which is the next single.
I'm just back from the show too, it was great - funnily enough All Out Of Love probably got one of the best reactions. She did a cover of a Shaun Mendes song and one from A Star Is Born and then River Deep Mountain High, 'the Celine version, of course' for the encore. She was rather nervous at the start but soon settled in.
This sounds MUCH MORE LIKE IT
(Even if the preview is just 10 seconds of BELLOWING)
How Daily Fail comments - 'Claire Richards #ShameOnYou'
Oh so she’s still doing this then.
She’s got to now she’s splashed out on all them lovely candles
Accidental banger alert:
She has never exuded LESS star quality.
I QUITE like it.
It's gone on my main playlist anyway.
It's a bit reductive but I like it if you completely ignore the video
Where’s the almighty remix?
I'm not sure what she is finding quite so funny. Has her miming always been so atrocious?
Anyway the song is quite enjoyable (though not so good that I would rather it had been kept for Steps) and will break up the ballads and empowering mid tempo numbers on the album.
Claire really is a less sexy version of Louise with a much better voice. This is fine but a bit bland and she just cannot carry it off as a solo artist. It’s nice she’s getting her shot at it but she’s better in a group.
The last time I purposely thought “Oh I’ll wait to buy that when it’s inevitably in a bargain bin” was Steps’ “Light Up The World” which, sure enough, turned up for 49p, got played once and never since.
Claire has just changed that.
Dialling Stacey Dooley’s Strictly vote number on repeat.
So the total number of WORLDWIDE Spotify plays (not just UK) that Shame On You got in it's first week is.... 10,343.
That's just fucking embarrassing. How on earth does she still have a record deal?
And with SONY as well! Honestly they might as well just give it up now and give the candles to orphans
Incidentally I didn’t know before now that she apparently made unpleasant remarks about asylum seekers in 2000. What a fucking charmer! I bet she voted LEAVE
DON’T GIVE UP CLAIRE, EVERYONE LOVES YOU
She's always seemed a bit...DENSE on Twitter.
Apparently she said, “Why are we paying for all these people to come into the country anyway?”
She probably ate all The Disappeared.
She’s always come across as not very nice. She can wear all the mumsy frocks in the world but she’ll still come across as spiteful and cold and JOE PUBLIC IS NO FOOL
Just give us another Steps album FFS. Is that actually happening?
Faye, obviously is the nice one of the bunch. She just came across so well on Strictly. Lisa is just, well, Lisa. Harmless enough but that desperation still seeps through. Lee is phoning it in for the money. H is a pain in the arse, always has been and always will be. Claire is just miserable. The amount of times I have seen Claire arguing with someone on Twitter, or moaning about something.
Love the new single. She saps the energy out of it in the video though.
I suppose at this point they might as well release the music they’ve recorded with her?
I mean, unless they save the songs for a Kym Marsh return I’m not really sure there’s a home for them to go to.
Claire Richards is on the Graham Norton show next week
I would have thought she was Radio 2 show worthy not the TV show
I wonder what the trade off was that got her THAT gig?
Yes I was surprised too. Is it on the release date of the album too? Good booking!
