i think rolling back the rivers in time is my close to my favourite these days. i know it's not their best song by far but i just never seem to tire of it.

Absolute stunning. That Nicola verse :disco:

I wish they'd get around to vinyl releases and deluxe editions.

So much of this, especially the solo stuff, is unknown to me. I think I will work my way through this today so I can rate them all.

I didn't realise how many people hated "Beautiful Cos You Love Me". It's OK, drifts past the ear without too much trouble.

Also: Crazy Fool is second only to Memory of You in the b-sides stakes.

Deadlines & Diets, Hear Me Out, Control of the Knife and Girl Overboard are the best album tracks, I think.

I prefer Singapore, which also fits with Memory of You...

Oddly, as much as I love them, I never really got into much solo stuff to even give it a whirl.

She had the lowest lows as well to be fair, and a lot of the Girl's Aloud stuff is very PEDESTRIAN

AS IF “3 Words” is the worst of her solo stuff!

Still, with that apostrophe you’ve rendered yourself entirely irrelevant ANYWAY.

Is there any info of who permitted Sounds of the Underground as the first single of a high profile reality TV girlband? It was so unlikely, so brilliant and could have gone so famously wrong.

Supposedly Louis Walsh, though I imagine the producers had a big hand in it all. Xenomania had written it for another girlband project originally, the name of which I forget now. They also recorded Sacred Trust, the One True Voice single, at the time too, though it only came out much, much later.

“Buy Girls, Bye Boys”, as their (inspired) promo slogan went at the time.

I love that No Good Advice had a version with proper swearing in too. It was all a big two fingers to what was expected of them and made the whole lot so much more fun.

I reconnected with The Promise today. It was so overplayed and I'm such an electronica slut that I'd forgotten what a strong song it was.

Cinderella's Eyes is grand. "Say it out Loud", "Fish out of Water", "Yo-Yo", it's such a dynamic pop album. Love it.

Xenomania had written it for another girlband project originally, the name of which I forget now.
“Orchid” I think. My school friends sister (also the singer of the chorus in Abs - 7 Ways fact fans) was in the band, and she bought the CD into school and played it for us a few months before Girls Aloud got it.
