Steps

Been a huge while since I have posted in here. But I am following this chart battle so closely. They really do deserve that number 1. We have been absolutely spoilt this week. Splatter vinyl arrives today and ordered my Lisa signed CD. Wonder if they have any last minute stuff up their sleeve. Hopefully we get a chart update this morning.

Both performances on This morning were great. Tight harmonies, great wardrobe and staging/Choreography.

Do we think they are done with adding the individual cds now. I think they could definitely nap few more 5 cd bundle sales.

Faye and Claire are both now sold out.
 
Excited to see where we’re upto with today’s chart update. Just remember that those signed vinyls won’t count yet as they’ve not been dispatched yet and I don’t think they’ll count till they have…

Hopefully they have managed to bridge the gap close enough so those vinyls dispatched later today manage to get them over the finished line!
 
I've streamed the album at least 30-40 times today, as well as every day since release. And thats not counting the 9 physical versions I bought, haha. They need this #1.
You only need to stream it 10 times a day. Apparently any more has no impact on the chart.

If the vinyls haven't been counted, then technically if they were only 1000 copies behind yesterday and they have sold the same amount as the Manics then they've snuck to the top.

19 versions and still if they bring out another 2 digital formats for a tenner to make sure it gets to number 1, then I'm ready to part with my tenner.

Was Deeper Shade always one of their 'biggest hits' back in the day (didn't feel like the biggest to me, probably due to it being a 4th single) or do they just keep performing it/putting it in these medleys because it's a bit edgier than other old songs/it gives H a verse to do/throughout the years it became more of a classic while other oldies of theirs aged worse?

It's the Steps single 'cool' people are allowed to like basically.

To The Beat Of My Heart should've been saved for launching Pt 2. It did not deserve the low key 'push' and also Ride isn't as good as they think it is.

I guess if the plan for part 2 had been there all along they probably would have spread the quality a bit more evenly?
I put a playlist with both volumes on shuffle yesterday and it definitely mostly hightlighted how strong part 1 is. (Even Come Dance With Me and Don't Leave Us Halfway sounded good in context, which I guess might mean part 2 has chances of still growing on me too, or it really just isn't as good)

No, not at all.

Around 9 of their other singles outsold it and it only stayed in the top 75 for 9 weeks, which was also among their worst runs.

Ah thanks! Not being in the UK I wondered if I just misremembered/didn't get to experience its impact
