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

I have always wondered why One True Voice’s Sacred Trust was different from Girls Aloud’s version. The girls’ version is as bad as it can be and we can be grateful they went with Sound of The Underground. If there had been a battle between the two versions of Sacred Trust, the girls wouldn’t have won the #1 position surely.

I’m sure that book says they only recorded it as a marketing ploy to offer the boys song with Sound Of The Underground but marketing deemed that as a dirty move. I don’t think it was intended as the single. More of a bonus track on the CD single.
 
I think, compared to a lot of acts, there might not be a wealth of unreleased songs because of the way Brian worked - there might be a ton of parts of songs, verses, choruses, odds and ends, but very little finished songs. I can’t see it being appropriate to assemble bits of songs together into new ones either, though I could maybe see more alternate versions like the Long Hot Summer and Wake Me Up rarities boxset ones.

Maybe I’m wrong though - We Wanna Party was a Neighbours outtake and I don’t think we knew about it at all until the Out Of Control era, so there could still be some surprises in the vault.
 
I wonder if they demo’d any melodies or choruses that ended up with other Xenomania produced acts.

This will 100% be a yes. I wish we knew which ones. I think Ideas circle for years aswel so I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s still stuff that could get released that they once recorded.
 
I wonder what we'll get with a Neighbours package outside of the b-sides and remixes?

Hanging on the Telephone? I'm Every Woman? Teenage Dirtbag? The audio from the Neighbours tour perhaps?

Probably “I’m Every Woman”, maybe we’ll finally get a clean version of the “Love Machine” demo that doesn’t have Annie’s “Me Plus One” at the end.

It doesn't really matter in the long run, but was hoping they would use the edit for Stay Another Day, as I don't think it was made commercially available?
