101. Hopelessly Devoted To You // 5.3
102. Everything You Ever Wanted // 5.1
103. Sacred Trust // 5.07
104. Grease // 4.8
105. White Christmas // 4.34
106. Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me // 4.29
107. Walk This Way // 3.75
108. Love Bomb // 3.71
109. I'm Every Woman // 2.75

Let's not waste too much time with these sorry excuses of Girls Aloud songs. Coming dead last is their cover of the Chaka Khan hit 'I'm Every Woman', which was recorded for some ITV show called Discomania. Yes, that did happen. The same applies for 'Hopelessly Devoted To You' and 'Grease' for some ITV show called, get this, Greasemania! Wow.

'Love Bomb' and 'Everything You Ever Wanted' appeared as bonus tracks on their first studio album, and 'White Christmas' is the first casualty of their only Christmas album. 'Sacred Trust' we all know and love today as One True Voice's debut single. However, it was intended for both the boys and girls on Popstars: The Rivals to release the same single! Perish the thought!! Luckily, 'Sound Of The Underground' was found and 'Sacred Trust' was shunned, never to be heard until the first greatest hits compilation was released.

Missing the top 100 is 2 of the group's singles. The lowest being the group's Comic Relief collaboration with Sugababes, 'Walk This Way'. Despite the fact it was a number 1 single, it's highly regarded as the low point for both groups. Nicola wanted to record 'You Got The Love'. Imagine. Just imagine. The other is the single that was 'cancelled' but in reality just flopped spectacularly. 'Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me' as the group's last hurrah sickens me and I'm glad justice was served in this rate.

TOP 100 PREDICITIONS PLEASE PEOPLE

'Walk This Way' is by no means THAT bad. Don't understand the hate for 'Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me' either; if it had appeared as a solo track on Nicola's album, it would have been adored.

Basically what Joseph said.

Fab! Rooting for The Loving Kind to at least make top 30, it's SO underrated I find sad.gif

I still have fun on "Walk this way" although it's a lazy cover and could have been much better smile.gif
But their discography is soooo good so I understand it's ranking low.

91 5.87 Count The Days
92 5.81 I Wanna Kiss You So (Christmas In A Nutshell)
93 5.68 Mars Attack
94 5.68 Girls On Film
95 5.67 Loving Is Easy (eww that was the only video available, I apologise in advance for what you may witness)
96 5.66 Merry Xmas Everybody
97 5.60 Christmas Round At Ours
98 5.57 Hanging On The Telephone
99 5.54 Lights, Music, Camera, Action
100 5.47 Boogie Down Love

OUTRAGEOUSLY low in this section is Sound of the Underground album track Boogie Down Love. It's an album highlight for me and whilst it's not as good as much of their later output, it deserves a lot better than this I think sad.gif Also dropping out in this section are a handful of Christmas tracks unsurprisingly, none of which will be missed at this time of year.

Lights, Music, Camera, Action and Loving Is Easy mark a couple of more b-sides that have left the rate so far, as well as rarity Hanging On the Telephone. Finally, Mars Attack and Girls On Film from the SOTU album. Albums 2 through 5 have still yet to lose a single track!

omg this started! This is Girls Aloud, so I expect the top 70 to be mostly flawless.

!!!

Nothing ESSENTIAL has left yet, although 'Count The Days' is beautiful and should've been the 2005 Xmas single in place of 'STD'

That's a lot of the dirge out the way, although averages are still far too high for some of them. 'Girls On Film' is okay though.

'Mars Attack' is so underrated, a real gem from the first era.

82 6.06 Teenage Dirtbag
83 6.06 All I Need (All I Don't)
84 6.00 We Wanna Party
84 6.00 Theme To St. Trinians
86 5.97 Stop
87 5.94 100 Different Ways
88 5.92 History
89 5.91 On A Round
90 5.88 Don't Want You Back

In this section we lose more tracks from the girls' debut, including 'Don't Want You Back', 'Stop' and 'All I Need (All I Don't)'. I think these should've been a little higher but then again the quality is ridiculously high! We also have some b-sides including 'On A Round' which really should've made the album and 'History' which really shouldn't.

The girls originally covered 'Teenage Dirtbag' as part of their 'What Will The Neighbours Say?' live tour, which went on to be recorded for the Radio 1 Established album in 2007. 'Out Of Control' loses a song in 'We Wanna Party', originally intended for the WWTNS? album and was originally recorded by Lene from Aqua. Also out, and criminally low in my view, is the 'Theme To St. Trinians', recorded for the film of the same name in 2007 and one that the girls had a cameo role in as the school band. It went to, I believe off the top of my head, #51 in the singles chart. Maybe it could've made the top 10 had it received a proper push?
