If you could redo the singles, what would their releases look like? I've tried to be as strategic as possible with mine - not necessarily my absolute favourites, but tracks I think would've been successes.

One Touch
Overload
One Foot In *launches the album*
Run For Cover
Promises or New Year (NY might not be the best option for summer time...)

I honestly believe that Little Lady Love had single potential too, so that could potentially be thrown in somewhere.

Angels With Dirty Faces
Freak Like Me
Round Round *launches the album*
Stronger
Supernatural - I LOVE Shape, but the simultaneous Craig David/Sting release was messy af.
Blue - Angels was MASSIVE so they could've squeezed in another single. However, I understand the importance of chart positions back in 2003, so a Top 20 might have been more damaging than anything else.

Three
Hole In The Head *launches the album*
Too Lost In You
In The Middle
Whatever Makes You Happy or Conversation's Over (if they were adamant on releasing a ballad).

Taller In More Ways
Push The Button *launches the album*
Ugly
Gotta Be You (Mutya) / Red Dress (Amelle)
Ace Reject (Mutya) / Gotta Be You (Amelle)

Overloaded
Easy *launches the album*
Good To Be Gone - Could swap these around. Although, for such a flawless back catalogue, the lead single should've been much stronger. The artwork should've acknowledged all members' contributions, too. I really think this created a lot of bad taste amongst the public.

Change
About You Now *launches the album*
My Love Is Pink - Change is beautiful and I understand the notion of releasing it in winter, but they needed a good old Xenomania bop to keep things flowing after the success of AYN.
Denial
Never Gonna Dance Again

Catfights And Spotlights
Girls - Avoid a staggered digital/physical release. Capitalise on the positive press of another #1.
Every Heart Broken *launches the album*
Side Chick
Unbreakable Heart

Sweet 7
Get Sexy - Release a week earlier for #1 position.
About A Girl *launches the album*
Thank You For The Heartbreak (Keisha) / Wait For You (Jade)
Wait For You or No More You (Keisha) / Miss Everything (Jade) - Capitalise on the Sean Kingston collaboration.

I think the right choices were made for each era tbh, not so much One Touch as Soul Sound is random af.

As much as I love it, Soul Sound is indeed an extremely random single. tongue.gif

The only other major blip for me is Follow Me Home.

Just because Change is on my mind right now, I'd do this:

About You Now -> Change (after Christmas) -> Denial -> Album Release -> 3 Spoons Of Suga -> Mended By You

I don't think they ever properly capitalised on the success of AYN because Change felt rushed out for the Christmas market and thus kinda got lost in the AYN bubble. Radio was still playing the shit out of AYN, rightly, so Change never really got to stand in it's own light.

That was a catastrophic f*** up. In hindsight Red Dress wasn't fab either given it was allegedly what pushed Mutya over the edge.

Sweet 7 should have gone:


Thank You For The Heart Break -> Wait For You -> *Amelle Leaves, Mutya Returns* -> album cancelled because Mutya hates it and it needs to be rerecorded -> No More You (with Mutya's vocals) -> New Single -> Sweet 7 2.0
