Girls Aloud: Rest In Peace, Sarah Nicole Harding (1981-2021)

  1. Thinking about the entire crowd singing the walking primrose line just had me in tears.

  2. I've been listening to Girls Aloud almost exclusively the past few weeks and their back catalogue is just impeccable. Sarah's "I know what you're thinking, you've been thinkin' 'bout my BUTT!" in "Watch Me Go" really is one of her best moments, isn't it? The perfect amount of sass and cheekiness - a line that no one else could ever do as well as her!

    Also, if anyone is interested, my friend and I highlighted some of our favorite Sarah moments in our podcast - a lot of these have been mentioned here already but I found it quite therapeutic talking about her and enjoyed editing it!

     
  3. This is what I can easily see them doing for most of her big moments in songs, if not all of them. That or I can see all four girls singing her parts instead of just giving them to one. Not Walking Primrose, however, I don't think they'll give that part to any of them.

  4. Walking Primrose was one of those moments from The Ten Tour that is ingrained (happily) in my mind. One of those memories I don't want to forget. That look of pride and accomplishment and joy on Sarah's face after she had belted it out.

    That was such a fun and informative video to watch @chrisjche! I enjoyed every second of it.

  6. I feel like it would happen sooner than later. I don’t know why but I feel like they have a rage inside their hearts, a rage to pay tribute to Sarah, a rage to cement her legacy and to offer her the big party she never had the chance to do. I am sure they want to do it, and I’m sure they’ll do their best to do it as close as to Sarah’s will.
     
  7. This! It could’ve been a very somber listen but you said “no, we’re hosting Sarah’s party and you’re invited!” Thank you for that! I especially love the bit “even if she didn’t have any lines, she made sure she was heard!”

    also, I can see them doing different things for different songs. Like Sound of the Underground, I see them all singing her lines. The Promise, let the crowd sing. However, no one can do the ad-libs that she nailed time and time again.

  8. I cried watching that video. Happy tears that she’s in a much better place now but Jesus she’s so missed.

    Speaking of her live adlibs, the way she nailed the “cause baaaaaaaby” bit leading into that key change in “The Promise” was triumphant in every sense of the word.

    And she did it every single time they performed it too? Woman really said “I wanna be heard and I’ll make sure of that”.
     
  9. They could curate artists for a concert and then appear towards the end. It would be an incredibly powerful tribute if they managed to pull together all the famous girl bands, considering how the Spice Girls, Sugababes, Little Mix, Bananarama, Pussycat Dolls are all active/semi-active at the moment.
     
  10. Good luck with that.

  13. Just was thinking about how she handled her whole cancer battle with such grace. I know she'd stepped back from the limelight, but I wonder if there was pressure for her to go down the sensationalist tabloid interview/morning show interview route. I think the book was fantastic and just a great way for her to control the narrative...a class act. I read it in an afternoon when it first came out and it felt like I'd spent the day with her. Looking forward to reading it again some day in the future and hopefully having the same effect.

  14. "Swinging London Town" is underrated and I have it blaring in my ears every time I visit London!
     
  15. I kept playing Fling today, my god, does Sarah make that song! Also, this has made me revisit them and that end megamix on the Out of Control tour is something I could listen to everyday!

    Dont know if this is allowed, but does anyone have a link to the Out of Control tour? I'd love to be able to listen or watch it anytime I want since YouTube has taken down the whole tour and I can only find patches.

  19. I wish Nadine realized that smoking is ruining her voice

  20. Imagine releasing an album with songs like Close to Love, Girl Overboard, and Control of the Knife... and not one of them being a single. The GP lost.
