Living For The Weekend by The Satudays
Dear Poptastic Readers,
This week, the UK girl group The Saturdays have released their current album in the US! Hooray! The album is called "Living For The Weekend" and it is pretty good. You should check it out. Here is the Poptastic review …
The album starts off with their smash hit "What About Us" that went to #1 in the UK earlier this year. Now if you buy the regular version of the album on iTunes, you will get the version with rapper Sean Paul on it. If you buy the deluxe version, you get the rap-free version as a bonus track! You can read about "What About Us" on Poptastic Confessions by clicking on the name of the song.
The second track is the current single "Disco Love." It's a fun little number at went to #5 in the UK. See what I said about it by clicking on the name of the song.
Track 3 is song that was a single during the early summer … "Gentleman." I like it, but I don't love it. It didn't make the Top 10 in the UK as it stalled at #14. See what I said about it by clicking on the name of the song.
"Leave A Light On" is the fourth track and it is being touted as the next single. It is a power ballad. And it is good song. But I prefer the next track for the next single.
"Not Giving Up" is the dance floor stomper on the album! It is an AMAZING song! In retrospect, I wish they would have released this song during the summer. Let's hope they will release it next year because it is too fabulous not to be!
The next track is "Lease My Love." It is a dance-ish track with various tempos. It will get you grooving, but the chorus is a bit simple.
"30 Days" is the fantastic next track and it was released last year. In fact, it came in at #7 in my favorite songs of 2012!
Track 8 is a nice upbeat song called "Anywhere With You." It has a male rap in the middle of the song.
The ninth track is also a nice upbeat song called "Problem With Love." It has great strings and a dubstep breakdown in the middle.
"You Don't Have The Right" is a bit a dark ballad. Very nice.
The next track is another fun dance song called "Don't Let Me Dance Alone." Fun, fun, fun! And I think the lyrics play off a classic Whitney Houston song.
The album closes with "Somebody Else's Life." If you watched The Saturdays' reality show on E!, then you will recognize the chorus as the theme song for the show.
Now, if you get the deluxe album … you get a bonus song called "Wildfire" as well as some remixes of "What About Us", "Gentleman", "Disco Love" and "Not Giving Up."
Overall, I think it is a good, solid album. If you live in the US, the best complement to this album is the "Chasing The Saturdays" EP, which is also on iTunes. The EP contains 5 tracks: "What About Us" (non-rap version), "All Fired Up" (#9 in my 2011 countdown), "Higher" (#13 on my 2009 countdown), "Notorious" (#8 in the UK) and "Ego" (#9 in the UK).
The Saturdays are fun girl group. If you like fun music, please buy their music on iTunes!
