╰☆ You Can't Mistake Their Discography ☆ The GIRLS ALOUD rate [WINNER + Complete round-up!] ☆╮

When people think of girl groups, the first that comes to mind is obviously the Spice Girls...
However, if you asked music critics or ardent pop music fans, the answer could actually be Girls Aloud.


Formed on the reality TV show Popstars: The Rivals, the premise of which was "Girls Vs Boys", whoever got the Xmas no.1 single was the winner. Judged by none other than Ginger Spice herself Geri Halliwell (as well as Pete Waterman and Louis Walsh) week upon week the girls would sing a pop track or ballad, and one by one they would be sent home.



The winning girl group consisted of...


Cheryl Tweedy

Nicola Roberts

Nadine Coyle

Kimberley Walsh

and

Javine Hylton!... nope Sarah Harding

With Xenomania as their partners in crime, for a decade (7 years active) they pushed the boundaries when it came to pop music, fusing every genre of music into their catalog taking inspiration from literally everything and anything, including their various failed relationships and marriage, hectic London nightlife to country seclusion, girl power and sometimes the extreme lack of it and quite possibly anal sex?

All the while critics fell over themselves with praise and indie bands covered their songs.

So join a rate that is sitting on a forum/website that lived and breathed GA, supported the random B-Sides and the bum note and treats their legacy with the respect it deserves!


You can't mistake their discography.

Sound Of The Underground

The debut album, reaching #2 in May 2003. It was the girls only album to consist of various writers/producers.
Obviously Xenomania are in the mix, but Betty Boo is in there too and one of the Westlife blokes also contributed to a track! The cover has each girl wrapped in baco-foil, obviously fashionable back then.

I'M SO READY. Gonna pie off the Kanye rate in favour of this. Sorry 'bout it.
 
Re: You Can't Mistake Their Discography╰☆╮The GIRLS ALOUD rate [VOTING OPENS 23RD FEB!]

Songs have been added, I've basically opened this early in case people want to request that certain songs are removed/added etc.

I see random symbols are the new tiny font.
 
Re: You Can't Mistake Their Discography╰☆╮The GIRLS ALOUD rate [VOTING OPENS 23RD FEB!]

Really looking forward to this, I'm a novice as far as GA goes and I can't wait to realy sink my teeth into their work. I just wish their last three albums were on US spotify.

Now watch me lowkey sabotage in the name of Can't Speak French.

Can't wait to get started!

Not that I'm entirely bothered, but where is Walk This Way??
 
Re: You Can't Mistake Their Discography╰☆╮The GIRLS ALOUD rate [VOTING OPENS 23RD FEB!]

For completion's sake I'd add Walk This Way (and so it's not a complete given that the Song We Don't Talk About goes out first).

I'm going to have SO many 10s here. Probably even more than I did in the Taylor rate.

Sexy!, The Show, Close To Love, or Not Tonight Santa for the win.

I'M SO READY. Gonna pie off the Kanye rate in favour of this. Sorry 'bout it.

Despite the voting actually opening after mine closes. Let me sulk a little.

That said, I can't dispute the Aloud. I can't say I've ever listened to the first album, or ever planned to, but there's enough here to pique my interest. Ready for Call the Shots to sweep the board, of course, but everything before will be interesting.

And I love that you chose the most unflattering photo for Nicola exclusively. One day, she'll catch a break.

So many possibilities for that 11.....
 
Re: You Can't Mistake Their Discography╰☆╮The GIRLS ALOUD rate [VOTING OPENS 23RD FEB!]

This gives me the perfect excuse to listen to that first album and other bits and bobs that I've missed over the years (that Christmas Chemistry...thing).

I have no idea what to do with my 11. Kanye got 14 10's from me, I suspect Girls Aloud will equal or possibly beat that.

I have a vague idea which song will receive my 11, but I'm not completely sold just yet.
 
Re: You Can't Mistake Their Discography╰☆╮The GIRLS ALOUD rate [VOTING OPENS 23RD FEB!]

I think my fantasy top 5 would be No Good Advice, The Show, It's Magic, Untouchable and On The Metro. Make it a reality, Popjustice.

I wanna know who's gonna give 'Beautiful Cause You Love Me' a 10.
