    I’m sure this must have been discussed over the 57 pages ( :side-eye: ) but is part of the reason the general public weren’t really here for Flatline because to them the Sugababes were Mutya, Keisha and Heidi?

    No shade at Siobhan, as this is clearly a more organic line up, but not everyone shops at Waitrose

    All good songs, but I think they’d sound better with Mutya.

    I can see where VoR is coming from. Because of their rabid fanbase, Girls Aloud seemed much more the "bigger" act than the Sugababes were. The Sugababes felt like every one of their big singles was a surprise.

    I agree Girls Aloud seemed fragile around "Chemistry", but "Something Kinda Ooh" changed all of that and for the rest, they were pretty much teflon-coated...

    Well yes, I said until 'The Sound Of'. As we've said before 'Oooh' was arguably their most important single.

    It never really felt to me as if Girls Aloud were the bigger band, other than in the tabloid sense. I was always aware that Sugababes were outselling them, and they always felt like they had more radio presence.

    If they have a hit comeback instead of MKS, there's really no chance for humanity

    Are you serious? :laugh:

    Girls Aloud were dominating the charts, seen everywhere and were the biggest British pop group for a decade. The Sugababes were this lightweight entity that were interesting for about half an hour every couple of years, released about 5 good songs, had albums noone gave a shit about 2/3 of them were mingers.

    It would be generous to call them the Tesco value Girls Aloud.

    OK but how do you REALLY feel about Sugababes, Nowoco?

    But for a few albums Sugababes outsold Girls Aloud, didn't they?

    I saw them at Wembley Arena on tour. I assume it wasn't the only arena on that tour.

    It’s funny how outside of the UK Sugababes were much, much bigger than Girls Aloud.

    There’s been several “new” leaks of late but yet to hear Breathe Me. It really would have been quite a solid comeback album.

    I’ve still not heard any of the original leaks.
    Can someone upload Breathe Me? I can’t see it on YouTube.

    I've managed to find their cover of Breathe Me. I quite like their take on it (was never a big fan of the Aiden Grimshaw version) i don't think anyone can ever top the original though.

    Having listened to Breathe Me a few more times i really love it now! Three more songs have leaked, Champagne & Roses, Garage Flowers & Up In Flames. The latter of which sounds so good despite it being obviously unfinished.

    Agreed! Up In Flames is quite something, in my imaginary world that this is their second new album this would be one of the singles.

    The last minute of Garage Flowers is really good too, despite the awful title.

    Yet another leak .. i wonder if we will be drip fed the remaining 25 or so recorded songs :D .. Arrow written by (and featuring) Shaznay lewis.

    After the first batch of leaks a few years ago i wasn't expecting much from the other songs .. but Victory, Arrow, Up In Flames, Light Up & Only You and Breathe Me are all quality.

    Girls Aloud > Sugababes by an EXTREMELY LONG SHOT. Not least because of the risible turnover (and getting rid) of members. MOTHER OF GOD. Give me a versus rate and I'll easily show you who was TOP DOG

    Also, to anyone who actually liked 'Get Sexy', I rather fortuitously have the guillotine at hand :disco:

    Another batch of leaks today including the original demo of Lay Down... it’s beautiful.

    Open book is another good one.

    Omg I like it, I doubt it would win against anything in the GA canon (unless by dumb luck it’s See the Day or maybe Whole Latta Histreeah)

    I thought I would mark the nearly 7 year anniversary of this thread by pointing out that 'DJ Spoony' from Radio 2 has said he has exclusive news about the girls coming next week :):):):):):):):)

    This won’t be nice for anyone to hear and I’m sorry to spoil the surprise but the exclusive news is that they’re ALL DEAD

    Keisha’s bag snatching went to pot after Bhs went down the shitter, Siobhan disintegrated to dust after her @ButterTart inspired rusk diet and we all knew that Mutya’s job in the arcade wouldn’t end well :(
