As some you might know Monrose was a German pop girlgroup, first established in November 2006 on the fifth season of the German adaption of ‘Popstars’, a bit similarly to Girls Aloud. The trio consisted of Mandy Capristo, Senna Guemmour, and Bahar Kızıl. They were signed to Starwatch Music and released their debut album 'Temptation' shortly after that in December, becoming one of the most successful acts launched on a similar platform, thus following the steps of the likes of ‘No Angels’. The girls found success mostly in Germany, as well as in Austria, Poland and Switzerland. They were never properly launched in the UK, let alone the US, but their music travelled through the world to entice a few of us here, ready to rate their discography. Which consisted, by the time they broke up in November 2010, of four albums, three of them being quite good and hiding some of the best girlgroup songs of the last decade, and most precisely the absolute bop that is "Hot Summer". This is the time for you guys to discover all those goodies!
As I'm well aware some people do not know exactly who they are, but could potentially be interested in discovering them, I decided to throw a little "playlist" of some of their songs (12, actually). Hopefully their sound will seduce some of you.

Let’s keep it simple : rate each song on a scale of 0 to 10, using half points too if you want, and send your completed list to me (Vixen) by PM, by using an appropriate title so your votes are easy to find amongst all the other messages if anything was to happen. You also have the opportunity to award that one extra special song an extra special score of 11, so don’t waste it! It could mean the difference between a song coming in at #1 or #3, and we know all too well how irritating that feels. Commentary is also welcome, and encouraged. In fact, as this rate is rather niche and will potentially only appeal to a certain number of people, you are all very much encouraged to provide commentary so the results do not look too empty.
Also, I’m not keen on faffing around with single mixes, radio edits and what have you, so if a track is concerned, just rate whichever version you prefer, and mention which it is as an aside in your comments if you truly must.
You have 30 days to vote, that’s Thursday the 23rd of June. Work it!
