I want Chasing Lights to be their last single - even if it doesn't get radio support or proper promo, just a way to end things better as if were being honest, WAYWF is an awful single to end their career on.

The obvious one : Get Ready, Get Set

The 'really should have been' : One Shot and 808

The potential ones : Walking Through The Desert, The Way You Watch Me, Puppet, Denial, Last Call, Set Me Off, Chasing Lights

Maybe : Lies, Lease My Love,

For me, it'll always annoy me they didn't release 'Do What You Want With Me'. Such a strong song and nothing like ANY girlband has done, would've really set them apart and seen them step up a level as not just a girlband doing cheesy pop. It was really 'in' with what was popular at the time aswell, so I have no doubts it would've done really well for them.

'On Your Radar' could have had at least six singles.

'Do What You Want With Me' and 'Faster' were singles that really could have helped the album especially the former. 'Do What You Want With Me' wouldn't have been as radio friendly than 'Faster' but the video and reception would have much more immense.

I dislike talking about what could have been because the girls / management have f***ed up so many chances for them, I still think they could have been successful with 'Higher' in Europe.

'What About Us' had an incredible amount of potential, peaking at #11 on New Zealand iTunes while going top 100 in Australia iTunes, imagine if they promoted 'What About Us' in Australia and Germany (where it peaked at #44) then 'Living For The Weekend' surely would have had much better material.

Chasing Lights, Here Standing, One Shot and Get Ready Get Set are the huge missed opportunities, but there are a good few other real gems there in their album tracks collection <3

The Delxue on Finest Selection annoyed me immensely also, I would have preferred to choose the tracks rather than some awful B-Sides.

I was so pressed when they announced Australian and German promo yet they did nothing in Australia, one magazine in Germany and I think they did an interview at 1 radio station in France...
What kind off flopped promo campaign.

What About Us sounded like a Pan-European hit. It could've smashed in The Netherlands, France, Spain, Germany and more had they even bothered to do some radio interviews/a few performances around Europe.
There's plenty of shows around Europe that would invite not so well known acts onto their shows had they been approached

It was doing incredibly well on German iTunes and was picking up on airplay, why they never bothered promoting I have no idea. They had a good back up story for any promotion they done in Europe.

I do think 'Higher' was the perfect time for them to launch worldwide but I guess their tour affected that.

I still think if they want another UK HIT they should release the single around Europe first and generate some hype, 'What About Us' provided some hype due to the fact that it was being promoted in America, imagine if they got a German smash etc it would more likely be playlisted by at least Capital!

I remember Notorious was picking up Airplay by 1 radio station in The Netherlands, which is one of the 4 biggest. They should've taken notice of such thing and jump to the hype

Higher, Ego, Notorious, All Fired Up and What About Us were all more than perfect oppurtunities

I personally think it's sad.
It would make a good albumtrack, that's it.

They really should have made a St Trinians themed video for Lose Control, since it was in an iconic scene!

Gentleman?

Yes, Wildfire would have probably sold similarly to Disco Love which would have made Disco Love a bigger hit in turn. sad.gif I love Wildfire.

Hmmm, 808 winning by so much. i DO enjoy it but I don't think it's strong enough to have the most single potential out of all their album tracks.

It's their most recent output so it makes sense. I mean 3 years ago, people here would have sliced other people's throats to get 'Faster' released, yet it somehow only has 4 votes now? laugh.gif

I think April has hit on the head of the nail with these 6 there.
