It's not my least favourite by far, but I don't think Long Hot Summer really belongs here - at the time it was meant to be a one-off rather than a teaser from the next album (much like Jump, which was later included on What Will The Neighbours Say?).
The proper lead single from Chemistry, Biology would have topped my list.

I think regardless of whether Long Hot Summer was intended to be the lead single or not, it actually was the lead single in the end so it certainly belongs here! Jump on the other hand was included on Sound of the Underground's re-issue and therefore the fourth single from that album, it's a totally different case.

Controversial maybe but...

1) Something Kinda Ooooh
2) Sexy! No No No...
3) Long Hot Summer
4) The Promise
5) Sound of the Underground
6) Something New
7) The Show

I had 'Long Hot Summer' on repeat during the Summer and it it still holds its position well, plus I've always found it never deserved to be considered one of their weaker songs. Really feel-good and I think it's a lot more remembered than people give it credit for.

'Sound of the Underground' is a classic and I'll always treasure it, but I just feel they've had bigger songs since which is surely just credit to how much they've developed?

'Something New' was certainly a killer comeback and is guaranteed to put me in the party spirit; the only fault is that 2002-2009 is just a magical period that brings such untouchable feelings and memories. I certainly have strong memories of 'Something New' but I just feel their comeback has been somewhat tarnished - I wanted Girls Aloud to be back on top like they used to, but obviously there's rarely any coming back from a hiatus.

'The Show' is ridiculously overrated on here. I certainly like it but it's easily near-bottom of their singles discography.

01. Sexy! No No No... - Best thing they've ever done. Risky choice for lead single, but they're Girls Aloud so of course they pulled it off.
02. Something Kinda Ooooh
03. The Show
04. Long Hot Summer - I don't get the hate! Fun as heck.
05. Sound of the Underground
06. The Promise - Yawn.
07. Something New - Had no idea this was so loved huh.gif I've never been a big fan.

Only by the fans it seems. To me it sounds like a song that's desperately trying to be a GA song with the unusual structure and all, but it ultimately fails to be interesting because they had already done it before and much better. At the same time the production is just a tad too ''generic'' making it very unlike GA. Unfortunately I think all the new songs on 'Ten' suffered from this.

1. The Promise <3 Adore this, was so glad it was their biggest hit, but I know this is an unpopular opinion (on here, not with the general public)
2. Sound of the Underground
3. Something Kinda Ooooh
4. Something New
5. The Show
6. Sexy! No No No...
7. Long Hot Summer

LOVE the top five, Sexy is still really good and Long Hot Summer is quite good.
