I don't like the chanty bit at the start, otherwise this is ACE
don't really like much bar the chorus.
Therefore I suspect it'll be my single of the year in 6 weeks time.
Sounds like they've still got the winning formula then.
I love the chorusy bit....so bloody catchy...but not the talky bits. Sing goddammit. And its all a bit WHO RUN THE WORLD - GIRLS!
Who Run The World rip-off crossed with an already dreadfully dated LMFAO rip-off :(
sounds really cheryl-centred, though.
Not sure why as his own songs were DOG SHIT.
That I already know how the chorus goes after only one listen...
The chorus is good. But the melody reminds me of something very obvious but i can't think of it right now.
but apparently it's going to be a double A side or something, so this is hopefully the shitter one.
Her voice comes through more than anyones whereas before it was Nadine who was the leader. I guess Chezza is more famous now so makes sense to put her forward as it will sell more if it sounds like her.
+ I hate Cheryl Cole
I'm sure I'd dance to it if it were played loud enough, but it's not that good.
On first listen I reckon it might be the worst non-cover single they've released. Or the worst upbeat one at least. It's not terrible by any means (bar the chant) but it just feels a bit like a by-the-numbers-pop-single and they're usually a bit better than that.
On second listen I liked it a bit more and already ADORE that outro.
This may well be like the time I said 'My love' by Justin Trousersnake was the worst song I'd EVER heard. And at that point in my life, I was already fully aware of Cher's back catalogue.
that song was a monster from the second it leaked with 'ATLANTIC RECORDS FOR TI CLEARANCE' over the top of it every five seconds.
by the video, spent 10 seconds waiting for them to turn round
They have set the bar damned high in the past and this isn't quite up to those standards.
I will probably absolutely adore this in a few days time.
I listened to this directly after Can't Speak French, and it just made me very, very sad. :(
The backing track sounds just a bit too generic to be honest, until about half way through when it gets pretty decent, and the outro is good. It sounds a bit too much like a Rihanna offcut.
This really, really needs a remix, beefing up the synthy stuff and adding a few builds and drops.
it's very Calvin Harris/David Guetta, but the chorus is big enough to make up for it.
i've always thought GA were a bit overrated as a singles band, but it's not because they didn't have the songs, just whoever picks their singles is a pleb.
is it better or even as good as The Show, Love Machine or Biology? Nah. It sounds really dated and cheesy to me, at least with the aforementioned singles they sounded quite fresh at the time, well, for pop music anyway.
That chorus melody is really boring to my ears and is the most obvious thing to put over that progression. I'll be quite surprised if this gets into the top 3 when it's released.
Nicola Roberts is eminantly more fanciable than cheryl cole
just good pop
14 songs. 10 since the last singles collection, including 7 singles, and 4 new tracks.

They were really rubbish at Wembley but I *think* this will be different, won't it?
was at G-A-Y at the Astoria around the time Something Kinda Ooh came out. It was brilliant.
Which the O2 may well be.
I still have nightmares about the setlist at that gig. 3 covers in an 8 song set. 3??!?!?!!
It's still terrible :(
It sounds like the best thing EVER today?!
I wonder if they were ever in the same room for that shoot...
This will be at number 2 just after the bit where Cheryl's boobs wiggle and after the bit where Nic whispers in Kim's ear.
I didn't even catch who's face it was as their little crop top thing was so tight and looked like it was painted on.
I don't like those orange dresses though. They're a bit unflattering especially with their hair up.
GIRLS ALOUD have chosen their favourite singles for the main disc of TEN. Now, they want YOU GUYS to choose your favourite other singles, album tracks and b-sides for the special 2-CD deluxe edition!
*votes for Close To Love*
They cut out a lot of the crap on this greatest hits album to make room for the better singles released since then.
I've done a review, you're interested.
On The Metro (brilliant)
Every now and then (pretty great)
Beautiful Cause You Love Me (belurgh)
Think ill take that.
It was great, huh?
Good luck to them all, they were a great band. The Ten Tour was a hell of a way to bow out.
they were basically fantastic and the best pop band since Abba imo.
or did the muted reception to the new singles spell the end?
I read earlier that Cheryl had already indicated that this was happening in her book (YOU CAN'T MISTAKE HER BIOGRAPHY, etc).
but anyway. Nadine's just tweeted to say she didn't want them to split up, oooooooOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooh.
I think all the signs are that this was planned for a while - a handful of new songs for a new greatest hits, the forthcoming box set collecting pretty much everything they've released and a big 10th anniversary tour. Seems to be an air of finality around all that, and probably a sensible time to knock it on the head.
Cheryl, Kim and Nic. Sarah and Nadine.
All sat separately in the reunion press conference. They were more pally on stage in those groups. Hang out together on Twitter in those groups too.
I hope it means we get another Nicola Riberts album sooner rather than later.
sadly though i'm told it bombed so she's gonna focus on tv work.
*told this by my eleven year old cousin,so not sure how reliable this is,she knows pop inside out though tbf
