HONORARY MENTIONS:

"ANYWHERE WITH YOU" from Living For The Weekend (4 VOTES)

This fun, summery, car windows down track made an excellent addition to the girls latest full studio album; "Living For The Weekend". Some love it, some hate it with it's Katy Perry pop banger sound mixed with a Miley Cyrus "Wrecking Ball" esque sounding intro, yet it's demo sound and corny lyrics are what let this track down.
CHART PREDICTION: Top 20
Reviews: Mixed

"LEASE MY LOVE" from Living For The Weekend (5 VOTES)
Yet another with mixed opinions, this R&B Stomper which was originally Rihanna demo by hitmakers Darkchild and Prisilla Renea is also a great addition to their latest full album.
CHART PREDICTION: Top 20
Reviews: Mainly positive

"WISH I DIDN'T KNOW" from On Your Radar (5 VOTES)
A beautiful ballad written by the girls, with an almost familiar sounding melody, great vocals, minimal autotune and nice harmonies.
CHART PREDICTION: Top 20
Reviews: Mainly positive

"PUPPET" from Headlines! (5 VOTES)

This was an instant favourite for many after the release of the girls Golden mini album "Headlines!", the track received some unexpected yet very minimal airplay during January 2011 after rumours started spreading that it would be released as the albums 3rd single. Let's all admit, the performance during the Headlines! Tour was amazing and left us all wishing there was a video!
CHART PREDICTION: Top 10
Reviews: Mainly positive

"KEEP HER" from Chasing Lights (5 VOTES)
This early Sats track was performed from the very start when the girls were supporting Girls Aloud and doing small gigs to get their name out there, leaving a great impression with it's strong, anthemic, electronic, girlpower sound and lyrics.
CHART PREDICTION: Top 20
Reviews: Mainly positive

"HERE STANDING" from Wordshaker (5 VOTES)

The beautiful, stand together, strong ballad that was rumoured to be Wordshakers 3rd single, leaving us the question "Why the hell not!?!". One can only assume due to Ego not going top 5, or due to the fact that it was around the time the girls told Jayne where to go. After listening, you cannot help but to hear similarities with Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown track "No Air", but that's not a bad thing right?
CHART PREDICITION: Top 15
Reviews: Positive

"WALKING THROUGH THE DESERT" from The Finest Selection (5 VOTES)

A very different sound for the girls, but let's face it, it works! When you hear it on The Finest Selection, you cannot help but be fooled by it's singleworthiness. Maybe if What Are You Waiting For? did not flop so bad, we could have seen a My Heart Takes Over esque video, but in a desert instead. Art.
CHART PREDICTION: Top 40
Reviews: Positive

"LAST CALL" from On Your Radar (6 VOTES)
Probably the girls most beautiful ballad to date, Last Call remains a fan favourite and a highlight of On Your Radar. It showcases great songwriting, lyrics, vocals and harmonies. It also bares similarities to hit Adele songs. Win.
CHART PREDICTION: Top 20
Reviews: Positive

10. "White Lies" from On Your Radar

A smash hit which faded into grey-uh, but it just won't go away-uh in our heads (see what I did there), produced by Britney hitmaker "Rami Yacoub" and written by Miss Wroldsen "notorious" for writing the girls biggest hits! The song gives us an idea of what a Calvin Harris collab could have sounded, with it's big sound similar to hits at the time "We Found Love"by Rihanna and later in 2012 "Call My Name" by Cheryl. Could the track have had similar success? You decide! Definately a highlight of the album and the girls career.
CHART PREDICTION: Top 5 (Silver)
REVIEWS: Positive

9. "Wordshaker" from Wordshaker

Yes the girls invented a word! The title track of their less than well received second album, was one of the albums highlights, aswell as a highlight of their "Work Tour". It's stompy, grinding, R&B beat and sassy lyrics are a total win! It even had a dance which could easily be learnt, the track also had promo on the "Hollyoaks Music Show".
CHART PREDICTION: Top 10

Love this Juliano! White Lies was definitely deserving of a Top 10 placing, if not Top 5.

EDIT: Wordshaker is flawless too.

8. "Faster" from On Your Radar

The girls went "Up", they went "Higher", then they went "Faster!". Yet another Wroldsen and Mac creation, with ballad like lyrics over a Alexis Jordan "Happiness-esque" beat and another highlight from the underestimated "On Your Radar", could this song have saved the albums campaign had it been released as a single? I believe much like "Puppet", the song also recieved some airplay in around January or February time of 2012, maybe due to rumours that it would become the albums fourth single. However shortly after it was announced the girls were to record a video for "The Way You Watch Me", until ofcourse filming was cancelled and 30 Days came along not after, which has a similar feel don't you think?

7. "Leave A Light On" from Living For The Weekend

The obvious choice for sixth single on Living For The Weekend was "Leave A Light On" written by Glee's; Amber Riley. Simple production, nice lyrics, great vocals and mass appeal! You have to admit the song had a lot of potential to be a worldwide hit if the radios still supported the girls. There was a lot of discussion whether the girls would release this or Not Giving Up as the fifth single. I feel the girls made the right choice, however would not have been upset by them choosing this.

Amazing list so far! But surprised to see Leave A Light On ahead of Faster.

Hurricane was probably humming White Lies as she posted that. In denial.

Last before the top 5! (I will continue with the top 5 tomorow).

6. "Chasing Lights" from Chasing Lights

The amazing, the beautiful, the iconic Chasing Lights, the title track from the girls first album, has been a fan favourite since we first heard it years ago. Also a favourite of the girls, they have performed the song in many places, including to secure themselves an American record deal. It's clear to see why, with it's catchiness, amazing lyrics, breathtaking vocals and stunning production.

Thanks for your support Zach heart.gif

I guess it's because Leave A Light On is more current?

Haha yeh! White Lies is awesome! I think it deserved top 5. tongue.gif

You're such a fake hater though, White Lies is truly awful.

Not just album track for me. My favourite track of theirs now! Such a flawless, pop song. I don't understand why those that love pop music, would not like this. It's actually incredible. Devastated they didn't/haven't performed it live on their tour! sad.gif

Is 'Do What You Want With Me' still to come?
