In a new gloriously chaotic interview, the reformed and still iconic Girls Aloud have had their say about the one single they’d rather pretend didn’t happen.
Last week, the girl group confirmed long-held rumours that they’d be hitting the road next year for a tour celebrating not just their 20-year legacy, but also the late Sarah Harding, who died in 2021 at the age of 39.
And let’s be real – as Girls Aloud’s banger-filled discography goes, there are very few low points for the group, comprised of Cheryl Tweedy, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh and the late Sarah Harding.
However, in a new interview with Gay Times, the band confirmed to journalist and entertainment editor Sam Damshenas that there’s one song that they ‘don’t claim’.
Telling the band that his least favourite single is ‘See The Day’ (video embedded below to jog your memories), the girls were quick to confirm that it certainly ain’t one of their faves.
“That’s not a single. I don’t know what happened there,” Nadine responded, with Kimberly adding “We don’t claim it.”
And it seems Cheryl agrees, with the star adding “That was a blip. Everyone’s allowed a blip.”
It’s not the first time the girls have weighed on their not-so-preferred tracks.
As part of a wider Soundtrack of My Life interview with NME, Nadine herself befalls the universally-panned 2012 ballad, Beautiful ’Cause You Love Me.
“I don’t feel the same way about any of the songs I’ve recorded,” she began, before adding: “Except for maybe Beautiful ’Cause You Love Me. But we just forget that song ever happened – it’s a mirage; it didn’t happen.”
When Beautiful ’Cause You Love Me was eventually released as a follow-up single to Something New, it only peaked at number 97 on the charts, becoming Girls Aloud’s only single to miss the top 40 (and one of only two to miss the top 10).
