I've always been a bit
with Sexy! no no no...
because the first part of the song (the slower intro) is immense and amazing and everything. Then the beat comes in and i sort of feel like the song loses its impact really quickly from that point onwards.
It's still an ok song but not amongst my favourites.
For some reason I was expecting you to like S!NNN... quite a bit
Don't know why, but hope you will like the next one a bit more!!
The intro is immense indeed, agree with you on that.
You're moving fast
Personally, I have never been a huge fan of Girls Aloud and strangely, I don't know many singles by them because they have never been a thing here in Germany. In fact, after "Sound of the Underground" performed quite decently here (I remembered the music video being played on TV a few times), they or their label never cared about trying to break one of the biggest markets worldwide. I think they had a lot of potential but in retrospective, I have to admit that I know why they never tried to be successful in continental Europe. Their songs a very "British
" and that sound would not have worked probably.
Anyway, I loved their (too short) comeback. "Now and Then" is a masterpiece. <3
Listening to "Wake Me Up" now and I actually enjoy it. It's not brilliant but like you said, that "rock sound" suits them and it's quite catchy.
"Sexy! No No No..." is utterly horrendous, tbh. I really loved the intro and the music video but the song's is a mess afterwards.
That being said, I bought every album by Cheryl and I love her to death. + I loved Nicola's album. I am still desperately waiting to listen to her sophomore album. So strangely, I enjoy the girls' solo outputs waaaaaay more than Girls Aloud's stuff. - But I will take your countdown as a chance to get familiar with some of their tracks.
Hopefully. "Something New" will be very high (or even top the chart).
Yes, the same here! SOTU, No Good Advice and Jump all did really well, but after they the kind of gave up. They did perform, out of nowhere, Love Machine and a Dutch awards show, totally random as nobody knew the song. Never took off after that performance either. Agree with your comments about their British sound, a lot of songs definitely wouldn't have made any impact in the European market. Although I think The Promise could have done well.
On The Metro >>>>
Awh at you describing S!NNN... as as mess
I do understand it, it kinda is a mess, but that is also why I love it so much.
Cheryl? Better than Girls Aloud? Okay, I could forgive your We Found Love comments. But this!? I'm not too sure anymore.
But I totally disagree on that one. She did release some massive tunes (Fight For This Love, Parachute), but she never delivered a good album for me, always very hit and miss. Nicola on the other hand is amazing. Cinderella's Eyes is one of the best records of the last ten years and I am also still waiting for her follow up.
Thanks for your lengthy reply and I hope you will discover some new gems <3

It apparently a song that divides opinion quite a bit
Always thought it was a popular choice among their fanbase, but like I said above, I can understand the dislike. It is a weird one!
