I really wanted to see their faces when they heard all these songs for the first time, they must felt blessed.The first act of the Tangled Up tour is legendary.
Sexy! No No No...
When the choir boy style ooowoooohhhoo comes in just before Cheryl's intro and then the guitar comes in during the intro - goosebumps
Descending upon us like superheroes. Best stage entrance ever.
Carrying on from where they started. Amazing, amazing song.
Sound of the Underground
When the baseline jumps in Loooondooonn. (Can't wait for this bit next year).
Close to Love
I was Snow White til I started to drift... one of my favourite Girls Aloud lyrics.
Definitely my favourite Girls Aloud tour.
What songs do people think could’ve been singles and still maintained their top ten streak?
-Close To Love
-Miss You Bow Wow
-On The Metro
These I think all could’ve gone top ten. Maybe a single edit of Love Is Pain.
I think you have to be fair to both bands, though. Girls Aloud's discography belongs to the five of them. With the Sugababes, they have four distinct lineups and back catalogues, so their navigation is clearly gonna be different. They have to reconcile what the fans want but also what is comfortable for all three of them since they were present at different points. Sugababes kinda have a reason to be strategic about what they say and do because their trajectory has other implications involved.It does seem very bittersweet that Cheryl genuinely seems to be interested in the band again and loves everyone's nostalgia posts and references. Also, I love that they really do seem to have a good handle of their back catalogue/album tracks.... unlike the Sugababes who seem to forget they've recorded certain songs that the fans love.
Me securing tickets for *check notes* Nottingham because it's the only thing that makes sense logistically for my planned family visit, googling Nottingham, and seeing a cute city center and some dutch looking buildings
