Uk Album Sales:

One Touch - 218,640
Angels With Dirty Faces - 893,387
Three - 830,558
Taller In More Ways - 859,950

Hopefully Overloaded can scrape 500,000, but who knows, I doubt it

I would have bought it if it contained

-New Year
-Soul Sound
-Angels With Dirty Faces
-Follow Me Home

Appauled they're not there and im not feeling Easy.
BUT I have most of their previous albums and i love 'Three'. I saw their 'Taller In More Ways' gig. It was so fantastic! Keisha is an amazing singer! :D

I have to agree. Watching her on youtube from the AWDF days and up to now her vocals skills when live have done a MASSIVE improvement.
WHAT HAPPENED TO UKMIX ???

:lol: I can't wait to get my copy of the singles collection in the mail. I ordered it a couple of days ago.

"Overloaded: The Singles Collection" is definitely a pop music essential, at least for 2000s pop music. It's probably one of the most solid pop singles collections in a while. I mean I was already blown away with Girls Aloud's greatest hits, now this is going to be even better!

Keep on doing the great work Sugababes because you never let people down. You are awesome!

It will be platinum by Christmas easily.

Congrats to the girls on a great compilation, I really like it! And why does mine have a sticker saying Special Edition? I have 15 tracks on mine which I think is normal? Right?

Most albums do that now to let customers know the album will not be re-released as a "special edition" later

The UK Edition is special edition because the rest of europes/the world's version only has 13 or 14 tracks

Run For Cover is definately not on it, and possibly another song, maybe Caught In A Moment

But I think it's just Run For Cover missing :(

The only midweeks known today are the top 07 singles, so nothing on albums unfortunately

But the albums 5-week sales total is 287,430

I saw this show on ITV2 earlier called Sugababes Uncovered where Dave Berry spent a couple of days with them and it was really good. They didn't highlight anything particular, it was just a general glimpse into the Sugababes.

I saw that^ Nice show - Keisha seems really sweet and sounded fantastic when they were just pissing about singing with the guitar players.

Loved it when they were about to go on and all had ear-pieces in and it's like

Stage crew: "On in a minute, I'll tell you when to go on..."

Heidi: "Wha'?".

Stage crew: repeats himself.

Amelle: "Can't hear what you're sayin, mate"

Stage crew: nevermind. :lol:
You said turn around so I cannot see your tears falling...

It's great to have all the singles on one CD. I hope the next album is more impressive than Taller In More Ways, which was good, but could have been better.

Check this out. A performance of Overload on TOTP. It's fantastic, and Siobhans a great bum wiggler.

^^^ to be honest, i hate that performance. it seems very amateur.

1) they're lipsynching
2) they look totally sad / i don't want to be here and i don't give a crap about this
3) siobhan is hunched over and, no offense to her, the babes are better without her. her voice wasn't so hot.

I like the things you don't like. Except for they're lip synching, but it sounds great.

I think the way they look suits the song. It is a bit of a moody teenager sounding song, and i wouldn't say they look like they don't want to be there. They all seem to be putting their all into the performance, and that's why i like it. The dancing is amateurish, but it's great to watch and adds a bit of something else to the performance. The voice comment is incomprehensible to me. Siobhan sounds amazing.
