    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    Not that I'm going anyway, but it'd be amazing if they wheeled out Swinging London Town or another song that hasn't been done live before.

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    I was having a moment with Revolution in the Head last night...It reminds me a lot of Control of the Knife (One of my favorite tracks! One of the first GA songs I heard, even!) But it still feels like its own animal. I wonder if we'll get the extended mix with the scatting intro from the tour...

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    Are the legit, confirmed lyrics for Love Is Pain out there? I've seen that one bit of the chorus transcribed as "Feel like I wipe you" but that feels like a random guess, unless it's slang that I'm not up on or just a trademark Weird Xenomania Filler Lyric that never got rewritten. Feel I could...

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    I actually really love Money! I agree that it's not their best and it definitely could have been ironed out a little more in the mixing stage, but I love how punchy the drums are and how lively the brass is.

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    I've always felt like Here We Go works much better with just one main vocalist. I guess having to section off the vocals to multiple singers makes the lack of bridge more apparent!

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    I've always wondered if Androgynous Girls, Memory of You, Giving You Up, and Mini Viva's I Wish - maybe even Make It Easy, too - were all written in the same batch or session or whatnot. Lots of shared ideas between them all?

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    I don't mind her inhale, but I DO mind Nadine's audible lisp/wet mouth noises (??) on "You kiss my lips". Eesh!

    Leilani

    New Leilani music in 2023 would have been the last thing I had ever anticipated. I love that she's been able to update her sound so...concisely?

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    This popped up on YouTube music shuffle, doesn't sound like any megamixes of theirs I've heard before? The compilation it's on is from this year, too. Edit: omg I'm stupid and I could have just linked the thing, huh?

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    One Touch by Mini Viva drives me up the wall because I can practically hear who would sing which line!

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    Those same lyric sources insist that the bridge is "Lose the mock imitations/God has got his rock on today" when it's pretty clearly "got his /rocks off/", so I always take those with a huge grain of salt.

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    Personally, Long Hot Summer, in the overall hookless dirge the pop charts have been stuck in for the past forever, is always a welcome surprise when it comes up on shuffle.

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    I wonder if Xenomania digging through their archives means we'll get Annie's house remix of The Show for the WWTNS rerelease? If a full version does actually exist, that is.

    Sugababes

    It doesn't sound that close to me, personally - more like her producers had a similar musical idea that they used as a springboard.

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    I'd love to hear the original Orchid version of Sound of the Underground. I think it's floated around online before, but not in good quality.

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    I'd assume the original writers - we only got the original Cadence version in remixed formats, after all. Though stuff like this makes me wish Xenomania would release some sort of oddities/odds and ends compilation Ala ZTT/PWL so things like this could be more accessible!

    Mini Viva

    Mini Viva did confirm that they also recorded it, though - MV were being 'developed' by Xenomania concurrent with Alesha's recording sessions with them! Re: Da Ho Chain - that was definitely scrobbled by a Xenomania intern or some such, but we don't know if it was a placeholder or joke title...

    Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

    Always been a bit bitter that the lyric wasn't "Boy, tonight, it's Girls Aloud", but Something New is a neat little song, I think. I also like Money, but it feels very firmly entrenched as a b-side.
