That thing almost derailed the whole ass chemistry campaign!!!!!! I don’t blame them!
It’s mad that an album like Chemistry had that singles run. Definitely a symbol of weird record company traditions in the 90s/00s to release random covers that no one asked for.
Imagine following up one of the most innovative pop masterpieces of all time (Biology) with a random dud cover from the 80s. Even more alarming when you consider that Wicked Game was supposed to be released instead of Biology!
Long Hot Summer and Whole Lotta History hold their own in the Girls Aloud canon but it’s crazy that they were singles over Models, Wild Horses, Watch Me Go, Waiting etc. Again, they were probably trying to go for the safer option.
