H & Claire
Released: 12th August 2002.
The second single from the duo, and I have to say I'm very impressed both with this track and the wicked remixes. From the title, you would expect it to be one of those slushy ballads, but unlike "DJ", it's actually quite different from the usual Steps sound. I really hope this makes the Top 5, but it'll probably chart at around No. 7 or 8. I can't wait for their album now!
It is fair to say that Steps' work and H & Claire's debut "DJ" weren't great songs, but "Half A Heart" is a vast improvement. It might not be the most inventive or most remarkable song around, but the lyrics are quite clever, and the vocals are strong most of the time. Despite all this, it will probably be one of their smallest hits, though it could still be Top 10.
