Whenever someone mentions the word girlband, the first thing that must come to your mind is.. well, Spice Girls. The UK have always been the place-to-be if you’re an aspiring girlband, after all, the UK spawned two of the most successful girlbands of our time, Sugababes and Girls Aloud. The success of those two caused the origination of many girlbands, some stayed, some dissolved. I consider UK’s girlbands a dominant players in Pop music, and as a pop lover, I can’t help but love them, maybe some more so than others. I’ve compiled some of my favorite songs of each of the two prominent girlbands, one song from each album. Don’t be fooled by the term “girlband”, they deliver the goods, trust.

Just Don’t Need This

“Ice, cool, won’t melt me down.
Buster I’ve seen your type around, your sting, you know you it can’t get me home, no!”

Never Gonna Dance Again

“If I walk through my whole life, choosing the safe side, and staying smart
I’ll miss out on the real thing, it’s all or it’s nothing, that’s why it hurts
