  1. I love Take Me for a Ride, I just wish The Slightest Touch had been given the proper single/video treatment too.
  2. Sooo with the lack of extra vinyls I had to resort to a signed CD from none other than HRH Lisa.
  3. It feels right. It feels correct!
  4. If you really thought that much of HRH LSL and how devastated she'll be of they don't hit no. 1, you'd have bought all the remaining stock lol

  5. I’m not usually a fan of remixes but I’m really enjoying the Afterparty Edition, especially the Shortland Club Mix of A Hundred Years of Winter tonight. Hope an edit of it appears at some point.
  6. I hope Darren Hayes is on a zoom call song writing session with Walter Afanasieff now knocking out something wonderful for the 25th Greatest hits. Steps GHV2 More Glitter and Gold.
  7. Am I right in thinking Light Up The World was also a Topham and Twigg leftover? I like Take Me For A Ride but I definitely agree it was ridiculous to choose it over The Slightest Touch or a beefier Victorious as lead single. You would think Peter Loraine would tell them that. I guess Radio 2 playability is more important to them... although I think it's mainly super fans who are buying 57 copies of the album, rather than casual Radio 2 listeners.

  8. That’s my theory… take me for a ride is definitely not career best. The way he was going on about it, it was as if every gay would lose their sh*t upon hearing it. I’m hoping this amazing song will launch the super greatest hits

  9. I’ve bought a ticket for the Leeds student union gig… anyone want a lift from Manchester to and from?

  12. Is the alternate mix for Something In Your Eyes just like a performance version? It kind of sounds like something from the Royal Variety or something.

    And of course, bought the 13th copy today. My poor bank account.
  13. Take Me For A Ride was the right choice, and I agree with Topham/Twigg that it’s one of their finest.

    Aside from A Hundred Years of Winter, it’s the most refreshing song on the record. It doesn’t feel like another take on any of the songs from Part 1, or like a Tears leftover.

    The Slightest Touch didn’t excite me anywhere near as much as Ride, but I do understand why many fans would love to have it out there as a single and music video.

    I think pretty much all of the singles post 2017 have been correct, whether they were chosen due to their quality or their connection, it always made sense to me. Sure, Glitter & Gold would have been nice in place of Neon Blue but we all know the band love that song, and it’s nice for them to have those moments that they enjoy.

    It’s very hard to argue the singles run of Part 1 I think. Perhaps it was the quality of the videos too, but they excited me a lot more than the Tears singles. It felt like a proper old school Steps album era.

  15. Light Up The World was a Karl Twigg written song, nothing to do with Mark Topham. It existed before the Steps Reunion so in that sense it was a leftover. Ride is in another league altogether, thank God.

    To think that I dismissed Take Me For A Ride when it first came out as sounding like a rejected demo! I fully admit I was wrong on that, and I now love it.

    The conversations you avoid
    Tells me I’m not paranoid

    is a great lyric, it keeps going round in my head.

    However I do wish there was a different “noise” in the instrumental bit in the middle, because it makes me think of The Sooty Show.

  17. Ha! Mollie was deliberately left off the list, as in my humble opinion, To the Beat of my Heart deserved lead-single status and a video! The Great Pop INjustice of 2020.
  18. 100% agree with this. That's the perspective I was coming from...whilst I like both songs, I think they are elevated to single status because of their origins/associations when The Slightest Touch and Living In A Lie are arguably 'better' choices

  19. Lee's cd isn't appearing anymore. It's only H and Lisa left
  20. Thinking of all the singles we’ve had over Part 1 & 2 and it’s hard to rank them because most of them have been bloody great!
