Love U More has always been up there as their best album track and could-have-been single, for me. Only Paradise Lost came close out of the original run's albums.

It's just a brilliant pop song, and Steps' version (helped massively by Claire's dominant vocals) is the best one.

That 2017 mix though. Oh man. Amazing. I can't imagine how good the studio version of that sounds.

Couldn’t agree more. They got Party on the Dancefloor so astonishingly right slotting Love U More and Paradise Lost in. The stuff dreams are made of.
 
Not really, both Tragedy and Better The Devil You Know were released during the previous' album campaign. Tragedy was followed by Better Best Forgotten, while Better The Devil was followed by both Deeper Shade and When I Said Goodbye, so they could have released Love You More at any point during the Step One era. I do wonder whether it was part of the plan to release Love You More as the third single (prior to album release) until the finished edit of One For Sorrow was complete as Claire mentioned during the Steps TOTP special that it was one of the last songs to be recorded and never intended to have been a single.
I don't think it ever was considered seriously. They had Better Best Forgotten ready to go in December for release in January, but it was delayed to give Tragedy time to play out. Maybe it could have been a 6th single if they hadn't have had Tragedy go so long? But I doubt they would have done the Step One video for it if they were going to release it as a proper single.
 
Tragedy was released before Better Best Forgotten but part of the sophomore album?
Tragedy was added as an AA side to Heartbeat because they'd recorded it for a Bee Gees tribute album and because it was was too amazing at the time to be just a compilation release (god I with I could hear it for the first time again).

But yes, it was added to their second album, as it missed the first - I guess these days they'd probably do a Deluxe reissue with Tragedy and Why added onto the original tracklist.

Some countries did re-release Step One to add Tragedy, didn't they? Just not the UK.

It's similar to Better The Devil You Know finally finding a home on Buzz.
 
I think I have said this before. But the latest mini clip of the Next Step Tour remind me.
Does anyone find it strange watching that Deeper Shade Of Blue performance (and as it wasn't yet a single) has a completely different dance routine. When I watch it back I'm still doing the "real routine"
 
Yeah, and also in the 'Steppin Out' Christmas special, there's a clip of Paul Domaine singing the chorus of Deeper Shade of blue, but doing the chorus routine for the Lay All Your Love On Me performance they'd have done for Abbamania, so there was potentially a 3rd routine.
