Forgotten Songs! – This Week – One Step Closer

There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them on cheesy countdowns run by music channels over Christmas if you are lucky.

So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.


One Step Closer – S Club Juniors

Today we look at a song by a pop band that were ceated through a talent show on CBBC for S Club 7 to form their ‘jnr’ band – S Club Jumiors or S Club 8 depending on how you knew them.

One Step Closer was the debut single by S Club Juniors, it was released on the 22nd of April 2002. The single was written by Cathy Dennis, Tim Lever and Mike Percy. It was released under the record label Polydor.

The single did really well in the UK charts and went in the number two, it stayed in the UK charts for 11 weeks. The single charted well in Ireland (number 5) and went to number 14 in the European Hot 100 singles. The track was also covered by the ten finalists of American Juniors in 2003.

This was a song that was always very catchy to listen to was really relevant to the pop music sound of the time. It was something that you could easily tell was by an S Club related group.
