Wildfire, the track that was tragically relegated to b-side status (and even worse, for one of their biggest career crushing singles) and later bonus track status, deserves its own appreciation thread. This bop would've easily entered the Top 10 had it been released after What About Us and the rest of the Living For The Weekend era might've played out very differently. Our final gift from the match made in heaven that was The Saturdays and The Alias, Wildfire will go down in history as the only Sats non-single to be featured on three releases AND performed on tour. This track could've done so much more.

The album track and "other" singles medley could so easily have been an amazing Hits medley for so many people.

So true. The fact that some of those were stuck in a medley while Gentleman got a full performance is baffling.

I always look at 'View New Posts', so I thought this was a literal wildfire appreciation thread before I saw it was in The Saturdays Forum (which would be in poor taste because wildfires can kill people and destroy houses).

Living For The Weekend Era should have been:

30 Days (it can stay)
What About Us
Wildfire
Not Giving Up (Released album week after?)
Disco Love

Re-release:
808

Mostly agree with this, although I'd keep Not Giving Up after Disco Love (and maybe not, you know, wait six months between singles and kill all momentum).

I enjoy it, but I'm unsure if I agree with some of you saying it should have been a single (I suppose it might have done vaguely better than 'Gentleman').

What they actually should have done is released 'Not Giving Up' instead of 'Gentleman' and let that be a top 5 follow-up to 'What About Us', and then they'd have had 'Disco Love' (unless that was literally recorded during the summer as a panic single?)

I bet they'll all spend the rest of their lives regretting 'Gentleman' happened.

Una especially. She recently admitted that it's her least favorite single, even though she raved about it at the time, because it didn't connect with anybody.
