"All Fired Up" is a song by British-Irish girl group The Saturdays, released as the second single from their third studio album, On Your Radar (2011). The single was released on 4 September 2011. The song was written by Tim Deal, Brian Higgins, Matt Gray, Annie Yuill, Miranda Cooper, MNEK, Xenomania and Space Cowboy. The song was also produced by Brian Higgins and Xenomania, and was recorded at Xenomania. Described by critics as an "anthemic dance banger", the electropop song was inspired by the music of Rihanna and Britney Spears, and was noted for its "synth dance beat". The track received its first airplay on BBC Radio 1 on 22 July 2011, when Scott Mills aired it on his Ready for the Weekend. The remix EP was released with five different remixes.

"All Fired Up" received positive reviews from critics, with many commending the song's "girlish vibe and unabashed pop sensibility". The song was performed live on television for the first time on Tonight's the Night. Before the release of the single the music video for "All Fired Up" was released on 10 August 2011. The music video was originally due to be released on 9 August 2011 at 10:30 am on the band's official website; however due to technical issues it was uploaded a day late. According to the band, the music video is a lot more fashion-based and a lot more graphic-y as they said they wanted something different due to all their previous music videos having a storyline to them; this one is just a lot more fashion. Within the digital download EP the band released a cover of "I Need a Dollar" by Aloe Blacc.

"All Fired Up" received commercial success after it charted at number-six on the Irish Singles Chart, becoming the band's fifth top ten single in Ireland. The single also found success in the United Kingdom after it charted at number-three on the UK Singles Chart behind Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera's "Moves Like Jagger" and Pixie Lott's "All About Tonight". The single became the band's tenth top ten single in the UK of eleven singles released. The single also had identical chart success as the band's 2010 single "Missing You", charting at number three and six in the UK and Ireland simultaneously.

BUZZJACK RECEPTION

QUOTE(Liаm @ Jul 16 2011, 03:10 PM) *
I think The Sats, Leona, Pixie and 'Sugababes' will go top 10, but only Leona and Pixie will go top 5. The Sats might manage it too, if it's handled properly. Mel C will have to settle for a number 438 smash smile.gif



QUOTE(lee wallace @ Jul 22 2011, 05:28 PM) *
I really don't like it. I could barely understand the lyrics.



QUOTE(Steve D @ Jul 22 2011, 05:30 PM) *
I quite like it, not as instant as Notorious, love the middle 8 though. While this will grow it won't hit the dizzy heights of Notorious for me as i still love it as much as i ever have.



QUOTE(2ndAdventure @ Jul 22 2011, 05:46 PM) *
Summing this up in one sentence..

A train going full steam ahead about to de-rail - epic.

It's hardly a typical dance track either due it's freestyle structure, but not as stop and start as Notorious. It sounds actually very Xenomania dispite that it's a dance track. Love the whole carnival/conga/percussion thing going on in the background, just to make the seperation from the 'dance' genre. It all works very well together.



QUOTE(Jonjo @ Jul 22 2011, 08:34 PM) *
OK. After the third listen I think it's pretty brilliant. It's different for them and I definitely agree with whoever it was that said this is what they tried to get with 'Missing You', but failed. (Even if I do like that song!) This is pretty addicting and I'm finding it pretty hard to stop listening after it finishes!

Liam you sexy beast. Could I have the MP3 please? kink.gif



QUOTE(Martyn @ Jul 22 2011, 08:55 PM) *
There is so much energy in this, it just keeps going and going but without actualy having anywhere to get to. I'll be intrested to see how they do this when it comes to promotion... Could be looking at alot of lipsynching going on. I do like it, but as people have said anyone could be singing this, and I am not sure who is singing what in some places.



QUOTE(Aidan @ Jul 22 2011, 09:40 PM) *
Wow, I've just realised these are the only lyrics in the song:

"I put my head against the speakers singing blow my mind, DJ blow my mind"
"All fired up - I feel alive"
"We make the party, super naughty, dancing on the bar"
"We're all animal, so getcha claws out"
"We're so close to the edge of desire, feel so hot got that fire"
"Keep me on your radar"

I thought it was repetitive already, but after seeing there's only 6 lyrics throughout the whole song... ohmy.gif



QUOTE(MusicIsMyLife @ Jul 22 2011, 09:44 PM) *
Absolutely f***ing love this. Eeek! I can really see myself dancing in a club to this. It makes me believe in The Saturdays after the whole Notorious situation, yes it has done well, but I think the whole OA/OS thing didn't do them any justice.

It's worthy of a top 5 placing to me, not number one though, Leona has taken that place, imo anyway.
Really excited about this now. wub.gif



QUOTE(-Jay- @ Jul 23 2011, 09:46 PM) *
I'm not very pleased with that! I emailed the Universal store to see if that's really meant to be the case... because 5.97 for delivery is just scandalous!



QUOTE(Johnkilometre @ Aug 27 2011, 03:27 PM) *
Ladykiller is so much better than All Fired Up, it's much more 'Saturdays' sounding and all the better for it. It's a new entry at #4 in my 'Saturdays b sides list':

01 Crashing Down
02 Had It With Today
03 Goldn Rules
04 Ladykiller
05 Not That Kinda Girl
06 Ready To Rise
07 Flashback
08 Beggin'
09 I Can't Wait
10 Unofficial
11 What Am I Gonna Do?

Chart run was so weird for this 3 then 5 - VERY good start. Then a massive fall to 15 in the third week. You'd expect a 2-5 start to go more like 2-5-9-12-15

Their airplay was quite low as well for a song of that caliber and relative success. You would think that after a #3 peak on the official charts, they would have raised from their #14 radio peak, but instead, they plummeted down to #22!

especially as it stayed top 5 in a second week. POPINJUSTICE.



It remains to be a gay-club staple though, I always hear it when I'm out.

ALSO, I've been to a few filmings of the Graham Norton show recently, and when the show ends and the audience are leaving All Fired Up is always the first song played. Get those trickle sale.s

Hi

This is one of their worst singles, like I only prefer it to "Forever Is Over" and maybe "Just Can't Get Enough".

It's a fantastic track, maybe simplistic and a touch in the generic side but this is it done right. I think this song was exactly what they needed at that moment in time.
