The massive Greek hit 'Tonight' to smash this rate. cheeseblock.png

I will be shocked if 'All Night Long' doesn't win this.

LETS KICK THIS OFF

21| WHERE DO HEARTS GO
[AVG. 3.854]
Highest: ...ready for it (09)
Lowest: Scene & TheSmiler (-01)




---

20| SHADOW
[AVG. 5.52]
Highest: troylovesmusic (08.5) + Cameron, ...ready for it, WinterFreeze, Soapsfan20 & Chemistry (08)
Lowest: Billy. (-01)




---

19| WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DANCEFLOOR (feat. Cobra Starship)
[AVG. 5.82]
Highest: Nina West, Slick & Rossco (09)
Lowest: troylovesmusic & Soapsfan20 (-01)




Kick starting us off in a very distant last is Where Do Hearts Go. This song is nice but so beige. It also last for about a minute and a half too long :') for a song so beige, it's not what we or anyone else wants.

Shadow being the only representation for Burke's last album 'The Truth Is' and it's only here coz it's a single :') It's a nice song, but not what we want from THA BEAST! It's extremely catering to the Radio 2 audience but still somehow flailing.

At 19 is an 'Overcome' Deluxe Edition track What Happens On The Dancefloor, which features one UK hit wonder Cobra Starship! A song that's a bop, but it's definitely best left in 2010. I'm confident that it would have been a hit at the time though tbh.

WHOTD is extremely basic in the worst possible way and robbed other songs of a place on the deluxe edition.

Agree that What Happens... is very basic, it's fun but there are other songs that fit that specification better on Overcome.

18| GOTTA GO
[AVG. 6.625]
Highest: Billy. (11) + troylovesmusic (10)
Lowest: Tombo (02)




---

17| YOU BROKE MY HEART
[AVG. 6.75]
Highest: NickF1 (11) + Slick (10)
Lowest: Tombo (02)




---

16| PERFECT
[AVG. 6.94]
Highest: Scene, troylovesmusic & WinterFreeze (10)
Lowest: Tombo (02)




At #18 is the 'Overcome' track Gotta Go. For me it's nice. But that's kind of all it is to me. I think it tries to be more euphoric and powerful than it actually ends up achieving. The chorus kinda falls flat after a promising, start. But yeah, it's nice but not one I return to.

Up next is the Pixie Lott written track You Broke My Heart. A song that I didn't realise was written by Pixie until v recently, but it's now kinda obvious. Lol. It's a cute, Pixie's debut era, 60's-pop throwback.

Finally, we have the deluxe 'Overcome' track, Perfect at #16. Such a powerful and emotional ballad number! The strings towards the end really sell this. It would've made a good single choice, I think! I don't prefer it to 'The Silence', but I wouldn't have been mad if they opted to push this as the Q4 ballad 5th single from the album instead!

I LOVE Shadow, have to say I only discovered this song very recently but it's such a nice, catchy and mellow song. Shame to see it this low! Where Do Hearts Go is very basic though, not surprised to see it charting so low and the Cobra Starship collab is too generic and very much a song of it's time.

Perfect is a stunner!

Gotta Go is the only track I'm sad about leaving but it's about where it should be. HOH album tracks not out yet - the deserved slayage!

Perfect is a gem I think it could have been a hit for her at her peak time. I always had a soft spot for Gotta Go as well it’s about where I expected it to be though .

Perfect is WAY too low considering some of the monstrosities in her back catalogue.

Into the top 15 we go! Kicking us off is the 'Heartbreak On Hold' track Fire. This honestly, isn't too far removed from what The Saturdays would give us. It gives me slight 'On You Radar' vibes. Except a bit more plain/basic. A bop though.

The 3rd single to leave us is out at #14! The love/hate Start Without You. This went on to become Alexandra's 3rd UK #1 single. It defied the odds and spent TWO weeks at the summit of the chart. It's so Summery and it's irresistably catchy and charming. The video though... no.gif Didn't this have a video filmed, but then they scrapped it for this version instead? I seem to remember a really Summery looking video judging by the photos etc.. and I want to say it involved an ice cream van? An iconic song that gets hated on WAYYYYY too much.

Leaving us in this section is the incredible Between The Sheets. A song that seemed to have a very positive or a very "eh" reaction. No way does this deserve a "2" though... you two better know yourselves tbh!!!!! What a song. This should have been a single from the era and I think it probably should/could have followed 'Elephant' perfectly sad.gif One of her very best for sure, for me!
