I've fallen in love again with 'Waiting' - such a great song! Love how Nadine singles 'hey there buttercup, you're like a peach on ice'.

Would have made a good single. But then again, so would have 'Models' or 'Watch Me Go'...

Sarah doesn't even look like Sarah on the Christmas edition cover. Cheryl looks sinister, and Nadine's like a slutty aunt. Kimberley looks the best!

I miss the girls so much! Seeing the Saturdays on Alan Carr made me sad. :( Plus Jimmy Carr talked about banging Cheryl and keeping Nicola in the room so he doesn't finish too early in his new DVD. :lol:

Swinging London Town would have made such an amazing single! Cheryl and Nadine don't seem to have the fierceness and street cred the girls have as a group. :(

Nadine looks like Cat frickin' Deeley on the Christmas cover - which I actually played the other week. :oops:

This is definitely their best album, Swinging London Town has to be one of the greatest tracks ever produced by anyone. They messed up the single choices though. I would;ve gone:

1. Models
2. Biology
-ALBUM RELEASE-
3. Whole Lotta History
4. Wild Horses

In all fairness, all bar three trakcs would've made excellent singles.

OMG I've been sleeping on Swinging London Town far too long. I can totally play it over and over again and still can't get enough. :cry:

True dat. Best GA album track ever.

Re-reading through some of this thread, I stanned hard for this album (and still do).

^ Same here. I still think this is my favourite album of theirs.

Love every single track, It's Magic is the worst if I had to pick one. Still love it though.

Either that or No Regrets, Long Hot Summer is a comparative dullard.

Long Hot Summer is fantastic! I like emulating Cheryl's voice at the start of the song and then going full with my pipes when Nadine's part comes in. :lol:

It's Magic is one of the best songs from the album! It's Nicola's best solo number imo. :lol: Literally every track is a killer tho, no filler.

I love Long Hot Summer too! I was dismayed to read that Xenomania hated it :(

I love No Regrets too, there's just something awesome about it.

It's Magic is the only 'filler' track in my opinion, it just doesn't go anywhere!

Y'all can't deny It's Magic had a hot beat though.

I love how I come into the pop forum to see the thread of a 9 year old album top of the list :D Sign of a pop classic!

They're awesome, right? :D

The original songs are better then the covers IMO (though I love their version of White Christmas). Count The Days is AMAZING, one of my fave GA tracks! So pretty and sad <3

This album was awesome, and I LOVE the Christmas EP. I play it every single year. The Xenomania tracks slayed.

What's the one that goes "bish bash bong wooo? That's my favourite. :lol:

I love that I waited until they were over before I listened to their Christmas album - I only listen to Christmas music 1st Dec - 25th Dec so I'm like on my 8th week ever of playing this :lol:

It's like discovering a new GA gem every year :lol:
