    For someone with an immense love for this incredibly special girlband, I honestly didn’t think I would be this flummoxed writing up an intro to their rate, but here we are. It’s almost as if they don’t need an introduction…

    I guess I’ll let their 4.3 million singles sales, 4 million albums sales, 20 consecutive top 10 entries, 3 Guinness World Records, 4 number ones, jaunts to the peak of Greek worldwide promo tours and their BRIT Award speak for themselves.

    Welcome to The Girls Aloud Discography Rate.
    [​IMG]

    Rate the songs from 0 to 10.

    If I’m perfectly honest, I will crumble at the prospect of even more mess than I’m anticipating, so please only submit scores rounded to one decimal place. I promise you that giving “Forever and a Night” a score resembling pi won’t make a big difference in the scheme of things. Also, songs in italics are optional.

    You can give one song an 11.

    Send me commentary on why you particularly, out of 110 (!) songs, love your choice! You’re not required to (although I can’t see why the fuck you wouldn’t - this is a Girls Aloud rate). Which brings me to the next rule…

    Please save any other commentary for the thread.

    As someone who’s lurked so much yet posted… so little the past 4 years, I’m genuinely excited to throw myself into the forrem finally and discuss this rate as much as I can with you all. So for that reason (and for the sake of not having the rate dying on its arse because I already have years worth of opinions from each voter typed up), please save your thoughts for the thread!

    And please... don’t troll.

    Don’t take the piss and give ridiculously, consistently extreme scores. I probably don’t have to make this clear, but if you know you couldn’t care less about Girls Aloud, then I suggest you a) figure out what went wrong and b) simply don’t take part at all.

  8. My life is honestly a bit of shambles at the minute so I can't commit but I feel like I need to be a part of this iconic mess.
     
  9. The amount of songs that are in contention for my 11

    Discovering Girls Aloud music after years of not "getting" them has been one of my most fulfilling moments.

  10. Yaaassss. Posting here to remind myself to do this.
     
  11. I'm totally in. This will be amazing.

    But when Beautiful Because You Love Me comes up, the discussions...

    Stanning Girls Aloud was the era of those quizzes to work out which member you were, what your favourite song was, how well you knew them, whether you were a love machine etc - so here's a collection of those to relive the fun/mess with 2021 lenses!

    upload_2021-8-2_10-4-45.png upload_2021-8-2_10-4-45.png
     
  13. The fact we can only rate one song an 11 with this kind of discography?!

    [​IMG]
     
  14. Oh my GOD YES
     
  15. The last Girls Aloud discography rate was what finally convinced me to go from board lurker to member. Can't wait to do it all over again!
     
  16. Yaaaaay! I hope I can find the time!
    Just one thing - you didn't include all the songs from Christmastry. Is there a reason?

    And did I already say yaaaay!?
     
  17. Girls Aloud are the reason I discovered this forrem so of course I’m doing this!
     
  18. What a discography!

    I have started this by listing my initial scores based on my many many many listens over the years but I will finalise them with a full listen through later on. And I have the tough decision of narrowing down the songs which could get 11.
     
  19. wow where to begin... time to dive back into some of the best pop from the 2000s!
