Off the Record – ALBUM REQUESTS – BEST, S Club 7

Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first!  We thought we would give you the public the option to choose which albums we reviewed for birthday week!! So today’s request comes from @paulalbinson on Twitter! He chose Best by S Club 7 so here we go!

Alive

This song was one the later singles of the band and around the time when electronic style was starting to be introduced to music. It is significantly different to their older music and more dancey and the lyrics are sort of more mature but still cleverly marketed at their target audience. It is not the best song off the original album but it is catchy.

Say Goodbye

This was the last official single from the band and it emphasises this in three ways – the lyrics, the fact every member has a line in the song to sing and the bitter sweet melody. Considering the style of band this is this song is a fantastic one to summarise their time together and to be honest one of the best songs to come out of their later music.

Everyone Get Pumped

This song is annoying, it was released on the greatest hits as one of those songs that wasn’t a single but an extra to entice people to buy it. As I stated at the top its annoying it is repetitive in the worst way and is way too dancey with lots of fastbtalking which just does not work for this band.

 

Rain

This is another song that is for the greatest hits and is also the last song on the album. It has a lot of dramatic string and chamber music at the beginning that blend into a slow and dramatic song about love. It is very S Club 7 style and I suppose a good album track with a very heavy beat that over takes the lyrics.
