Girls Aloud: A Guilty Pleasure

I have to admit I like girls groups. The Brits have refined them over the decades. In the 80s they gave us Bananarama, in the 90s All Saints, The Spice Girls, in this decade several more like the Sugababes, but I have to say I really like Girls Aloud, who are an extremely popular group. Especially overseas.

Unlike some of the aforementioned bands, this girls are really talented in a lot of ways. There is a lot of versatility to their music. They aren’t so prepackaged as the others. Here’s a sample of their music just to give you an idea. Sexy No No No is a club dance track, Jump is a cover of an old Pointer Sisters Song, I’ll Stand By You is another excellent cover. Call the Shots is one of their songs that sold me on them.

It doesn’t hurt that they’re easy on the eyes, but their CDs are surprisingly good. I can listen to them all the way through and not get bored. It’s not surprising that they have so many hit songs.

They were created out of an American Idol like competition show in the UK and have gone on to huge international stardom.
