Hazey Says | Ugh, this song just does not flow at all for me, it ends up sounding like a mushed together mess. Ironically, the synths during the chorus make Vanessa sound like she’s singing about ‘doing what you want with her’ in a church. The best part is the one-line “middle eight” from Frollie because it’s like a ray of light that breaks up whatever the hell else is going on in the main song. (4)

This was produced by Jaz Rogers and Bryn Christopher who said they really wanted to push the limits of what The Saturdays could sound like, which ended up being a dubstep sound. Vanessa said at the time she wasn’t into the song at first and took a lot of work to make it right. They performed in the All Fired Up tour with a pregnant Una sitting it out because they were some racy elements to the routine.

Most of the voters who commented in 2015 recognized the fact that the band really took a risk with this one and made something that sets itself apart from the rest of their discography. This would translate to many people claiming they were caught off guard at first and hated it, but had since warmed up to it over time, with others stating they must be in the right mood for it. Maybe this means the song with have an upward trajectory in 2022.


@Attis (10) - ffff what is this song, the nerve I applaud it.

@louciano (9.5) - This song is really exciting. The tinny piano(?) instrumental really complements the whole minimalistic-esque vibe of the song to me.

@Ezz (9.25) - That opening is among their most epic. If only this was consistent across the album.

@JakobVision22 (8) - I know this album is polarizing and most "critics" seem to agree that it's their worst work but songs like Do What You Want With Me shows that the girls and the producers were at least trying out things that were new to them. Nothing else in their discography sounds like this song, which is dubstep meets mid tempo meets EDM meets ballad. The Saturdays weren't known for their innovation, but songs like this still stick out to me years and years later.

@Scaper (7.5) - The last minute or so of the song is great. It was good to hear them try something different and be somewhat experimental with sound.

@Phonetics Girl (7.5) - For some reason, this is how I imagine all PJ00s+ entries to sound from now on.

@daninternational (7) - Something about the structure/production makes it feel quite interesting.

@saviodxl (6.5) - They need to learn a thing or two about consent nn.

@Sally_Harper (5) - This isn’t one of my favourites, but the festive intro gets me every time. As do the memories of Frankie and Mollie’s autotunes malfunctioning. #poorFrankie #poorMollie

Yeah, somehow this is still getting applause for trying something new in 2022, when dubstep is involved in the process. Weird, some of my favorite bops from this era get attacked constantly for that element dd. Also, no way to the PJ00s+ comment. I have enough taste (barely) to enter stuff that is far better than this. At least @Phonetics Girl can know she's not alone in the On Your Radar detractor department, with @Ezz's comment.

Shoutout Queens



Frankie and Mollie each had 1 shoutout in 2015 and then I added mine with this rate, so it'll be another Frollie classic.


Not sure when or how many songs will go out tomorrow as there is our first winter storm forecasted which always throws a monkey wrench into everything. When #38 comes, it'll be a B-Side though.

Always have, always will by Ace Of Base love Dubstep, so Do What You Want With Me is right up my alley. It may have got a 10 with different lyrics. 8.7.

The best thing about Set Me Off are the rhythmic bass synths throughout, but I also like the melody in the verses, the crescendo of the chorus and the last wobbly seconds. 10.

For Myself has more rock-ish elements than most tracks, which gives it a different feel. The theme of the lyrics is great, and the chorus is so singalong. 10.

The biggest drop for any B-Side so far has been 4 spots ("Ready to Rise"), but that changes now, substantially.

Hazey Says | Great underrated favorite this rate made me re-discover my love for. It's all about those beautiful little "ooo-ooo-ooo" sirens, but it's mostly bulletproof throughout. (9)

Despite being featured by Popjustice and being a fan favorite on the Headlines Tour, it never made On Your Radar’s tracklist and eventually was a B-Side to 30 Days.
Most of the conversation surrounding the song was whether you prefer the live version on the Headlines Tour or not. It was kind of split down the middle in the that regard, which probably prevented it from being ranked higher.​

@RUNAWAY (11) - It just hits different. Remains my favorite Sats song, even over all their singles, which feels weird to say, but it’s true.

@Ugly Beauty (11) - I don't know what to say except I really *love* this song, their best b-side.

@louciano (9.75) - Almost a 10, it just is missing a sanding down to hone in on all the good bits.

@Phonetics Girl (9.5) - Different and ~~moody enough to be a standout.

@Ezz (8.5) - This would make a really good pairing with one of their happier tracks (will be interesting to see which single it was the B side for!)

@Sally_Harper (7) - The difference between the live version and the recorded version is the single thing that pisses me off the most about the Sats. The live version is glorious and would be an 11 contender, the recorded version is so flat and autotuned and, worst of all, the piano is buried, which I take personally. ALTHOUGH, the recorded version does have a really high “you hear the sirens goiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing” from Frankie in the background at about 2.30 which I ADORE.

@daninternational (5.5) - A bit disjointed, pop songs about the police are supposed to bop more (Ivi Adamou knows)

@Shockbox (5) - This is such a disappointing song. It sounded so good live but it's just so flat recorded.

Unfortunately, what was rated one of their best B-Sides in 2015 has taken a little tumble. Those egregiously low scores probably have a lot to do with it. Seems like a lot of the critique is about liking the live version better, which was always debated about this song. I agree with @Sally_Harper about Frankie's sirens being the key element to make it a memorable bop.

Shoutout Queen


Which is why Frankie took the lead for shoutouts with her 3. She's starting to gain some momentum on the leaderboard by getting her 8th victory.


#37 is back to the earlier part of their discography.

Hazey Says | The massive pre-chorus especially the "WHO THE HELL IS SHE", also mis-hearing Rochelle's line as "I hope the girl's got a real bitch in the family". (9)

It was performed on the Headlines tour with a pretty ‘violent’ choreography to go along with the theme of the song:

The debate with this song in 2015 was whether the lyrics were too dated/Americanized/cheesy/Kidz Bop. The decision was whether you either overlooked the worst parts of the lyrics, enjoyed the zaniness, and just plain loved all of the sass. One lyric had people on one side of the fence or the other and that was the ‘hot coffee’ one. Also, there was a great comment came from Mollie-hater Deborux who claimed Mollie’s “oooh” sounded like a malfunctioning fax machine. *low key* yaaas.


@louciano (10) - Originally this was scored lower, but that addictive scratchy synth and the chanting chorus are unquestionably quintessential in songs I love. WHO THE HELL IS SHE!

@saviodxl (9.2) - They could use less auto tune here nn. Right Frankie? Nonetheless, brilliant.

@Hazey's Mom (9) - Almost another 10, but the song sounds kind of broken somewhere and messy.

@Sally_Harper (9) - This isn’t a favourite by any means but I like it when I’m in the right mood. The worst thing about it is how much you can hear Ina. The best thing is that Una has always sounded to me like she sings “BEN I hope you choke on some really hot coffee!” which is EXCELLENT given how much of a prick he turned out to be. I hope he does too!

@daninternational (8.5) - Sounds like an Irish Eurovision song, but better ddd

@Ezz (8.25) - The Saturdays do pop-rock?

@Phonetics Girl (8) - Umm, I'm not exactly sure what to do with this song. It used to be such a 10 (throwback to the summer of 2010 being defined by Headlines and Teenage Dream!) but in 2022 my perception of it is a shrill mess. Guess I'm too nostalgic to be harsh with my score, though!

@Attis (7.5) - Oh this one kinda bops, despite all of the cheap synths fuckery the producers did

@Scaper (6.5) - Another one that is now mainly headache-inducing but I have always appreciated the bitterness of the lyrics. “I hope that girl only sees the things she wants to see, not your personality” in particular.

I mean, we all compare Karma and Puppet because they're the two 'fun ones' from Headlines! - I've always thought about both immediately whenever one or the other comes up. To me though, Puppet has aged much better. My 9 is probably more of an 8, but nostalgia makes you do questionable things. It's funny how @daninternational says it sounds like an Irish Eurovision song because Una leads, but I would actually say "Had It with Today" is the definitive Saturdays Ireland entry.

Shoutout Queens



Frankie is officially on a roll now. Whether you like her 'auto tune' on this song or you're @saviodxl, it's undeniable she plays a big part, along with Una as Fruna unsurprisingly have the most positive comments in both rates - 3 each.


The next song is from the first half of the main discography as well. I'm a bit surprised that its glow up in this rate hasn't been discussed.​
