Girls Aloud

  1. I’m so happy they got to all meet up. To be a fly on the wall watching them watch Off The Record! I remember at some point during that documentary that one of them says “it’ll be nice to look back at this in years to come” and it’s especially poignant now. I’m actually welling up typing this thinking of them all having a laugh and reminiscing about everything.
     
  2. Forgetful legend. Reminds me of when she “forgot” Sweetest High came out and chalked it up to being drunk a lot around that time.

    Or when she forgot her passport.
    Or when she didn't remember being part of their split
     
  4. It’s a small moment of happiness knowing that they rallied around her. Tough times bring people together or blow them apart and in GA’s case, I’m just so happy it brought them together again.

  5. aww thats lovely that they all had a meet up together. Looking forward to read Sarah’s book at the weekend
     
  6. So nice they all got together to have some fun and chill.
     
  7. I’ve shoved on Off The Record whilst studying after today’s little extract was released and it’s made me feel a little sad.
     
  8. It's taken me a few days to process what I am reading about Sarah's cancer spread, even more so given the short life sentence she so sadly seems to have been dealt with. At times, I am sat thinking "why should I feel this sad? I don't even know Sarah, personally....", but then I think that, regardless of not knowing someone, Sarah Harding (and the other four members) have, and still do play, a huge part of my life; their music was escapism for me, their tours were moments year on year where I felt me, they introduced me truly to music and the obsession of loving an artist.. Sarah, Nicola, Cheryl, Nadine and Kimberley weren't just a band to me, they were (and still are) the soundtrack to so many memories of my life, and still are to this date.

    I often sat and mocked the idea of when someone passes, like Michael Jackson, fans weeping or heading to particular significant parts of this figure's career to lay flowers or remember them by, but now I get it. I get that artists have this ability to connect with a fan, on a level that isn't just "here's my songs.. listen to them..". Albeit when the sad moment does arise and we say goodnight to Sarah, I for one already have in my mind that I want to walk through Primrose Hill listening to Girls Aloud, and lay some flowers just subtly and quietly in memory somewhere... just as "here I aaaaam, walking primrose" is playing.
     
  9. I am so happy they met and watched Off The Record.

    I really don't know what else to say. I will be buying Hear Me Out on iTunes on Thursday at 10am and buying the book that day. I just feel so helpless and sad, and there really is nothing anyone can say to make it better. I'm not talking about myself, but rather the horrible and inevitable outcome.

    I am however grateful that we have this space to share.
     
  10. In a different reality, it would have been amazing if a ‘live’ version of Hear Me Out had been included as a bonus download. But I have purchased a copy and emphasize Sarah’s health being our upmost priority.
     
  11. I 've never met Sarah but she is not dying from painkillers or drugs but cancer, and it reminds me of several members of my family I've lost. you run to the doctor for every pain you become paranoid the one time you don't it's why didn't you get that checked, this story is just sadder than most because it could literally happen to anyone. I do hope if she is able to, a one off with the other members for a TV performance or a zoom harmony.
     
  12. So heartbreaking. Still can’t believe what’s happening. I was so sure she would pull through and get through this, so reading all the news updates is absolutely gutting.

    I really hope that she can have some happy days ahead and lots of special moments.
     
  13. I've been offline for a few days and to come back and read this, wow... I'm honestly heartbroken!

    I never thought it would come to this, it genuinely feels like I'm losing a friend. I hope her and her family/friends make this time as special as they can for her.

  14. In the horrific bleakness of this it warms my heart so much to read they all got together for a few days and had a great time. Also scream at Nadine being more Nadine than ever.
     
  15. Reading about their get together stirs up so many emotions, talk about bittersweet. I'm happy that in this tough time they've all rallied around Sarah. She's so incredibly brave for being so open about it all.

  16. Seeing all of that news and interviews made me extremely sad, you never can expect news like this and it becomes even more heartbreaking to realise how fragile can life be. One of the happy moments coming from this is seeing how girls finally rejoiced together, as they should be, and I bet that their "little reunion" brought lots of good emotions to their lifes.

  17. Thanks so much for posting this, I'm going to send her one today. This is all so terrible.

  18. I had sort of expected this to happen at some point when we found out the cancer was advanced and incurable last year, but hoped that she would still be able to live many years.

    It’s so incredibly sad for Sarah, her family and friends and seems so unfair. I hope she gets to do exactly what she wants in the time she has left.

    Girls Aloud are the only group that I’ve followed avidly right from their creation. They are my go-to artist I listen to if I’m feeling down, and they always pick me up again. I grew up to their music. I’m so grateful that I got to experience Sarah and the girls live on tour twice - Tangled Up was my first concert.

    The song Hear Me Out really takes on a new meaning now. It’s a track I haven’t really paid much attention to in the past but it’s a real emotional listen in the circumstances.

  19. Maybe we all need an Off The Record re-watch.
