    The Saturdays

    Now that they're bona-fida popstars (and by that I mean 'If This Is Love' debuted at number 8 in the UK charts), I thought they deserved a thread of their own.

    If This Is Love didn't perform as well as I thought (I was hoping for a top-5 debut and a few weeks in the Top 10) but I guess for a kick off single for a pop band with no gimmick behind them, so to speak, they've done well. The marketing continues to surprise me - the girls regularly post on the official forum (and by regularly I mean if you head over there now you're likely to have a conversation with one of them), keep video journals (which go as far as taking tours of their bedrooms), and are on a constant radio tour (I thought people stopped doing that 10 years ago?). They seem to want to create a strong bond between the band and the fans, and as I mentioned earlier, this whole thing reeks of Smash Hits 1999.


    ANYWAY!!! Their next single is called Up and it is fucking mind-blowing. I can see why they kept it as a second single - If This Is Love to drum up some hype and then Up to really secure the deal. Apparently the record company has high hopes for the band and aren't going to be giving up on them any time soon.

    Here's a performance of 'Up', the best one I could find. NOTICE THE AMAZING SIRENS GOING OFF WHEN VANESSA (the one in the pink) SINGS 'THIS IS THE FINAL CALL FOR ALL DESTINATIONS'. IF THAT ISN'T THE GREATEST BRIDGE IN A POP SONG ALL YEAR LONG, FRANKLY, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS.

    Here's a fanmade version of 'Up'! It's from the 2 minute leak that leaked a couple of days ago, and put together by a fan. It sounds exactly like the finished track will, without the adlibs at the end (even though they did add some adlibs from live versions).

    I love the second bridge so, so much. "This is the final call for all destinations..." .

    Also on their official website they've put a behind the scenes video of the video shoot. It's completely in front of green screen. They look really cool, keeping up with the colored theme but not as in your face as the 'If This Is Love' video. It's set in space.

    Lyrics:

    Una:
    Go, go, go
    It's time to make a move and
    We both know
    It's time to step it up a notch
    I'm ready to lose touch
    Baby boy
    Go, go, go

    Vanessa:
    This is the crossing at the main intersection
    Up is where we go from here
    Final selection
    This can take us anywhere
    I don't want protection
    Life is better off the line-ine-ine

    All:
    I'm ready for the lift up
    Keep steady beat
    Cos I'm ready for the big jump
    Keep up with me
    If you lose me then you know
    You're just a bit too slow
    I only go
    Up
    Up
    I'm ready to be in control
    And the ground isn't good enough for me
    I know where to find what I want
    And I will keep on, keep on
    Up, up

    Una:
    No turns now
    We're going straight you better hold on tight
    Cos if you fall you're on your own
    Cos I'm gonna go on
    No, no, no turns now

    Vanessa:
    This is the final call for all destinations
    This is where you're in or out
    No hesitation
    This is not the time for doubts
    Make your decision
    Are you on or off the line-ine-ine

    All:
    I'm ready for the lift up
    Keep steady beat
    Cos I'm ready for the big jump
    Keep up with me
    If you lose me then you know
    You're just a bit too slow
    I only go
    Up
    Up
    I'm ready to be in control
    And the ground isn't good enough for me
    I know where to find what I want
    And I will keep on, keep on
    Up, up

    Vanessa:
    This is the crossing at the main intersection
    Up is where we go from here
    Final selection
    This can take us anywhere
    I don't want protection
    Life is better off the line-ine-ine

    All:
    I'm ready for the lift up
    Keep steady beat
    Cos I'm ready for the big jump
    Keep up with me
    If you lose me then you know
    You're just a bit too slow
    I only go
    Up
    Up
    I'm ready to be in control
    And the ground isn't good enough for me
    I know where to find what I want
    And I will keep on, keep on
    Up, up

    Cute video, but I don't think the song is as good as ITIL
