Best (The Greatest Hits)
Best reminds us that in their short reign as the UK's premier pop group, S Club 7 performed some absolutely cracking songs. This retrospective of their four-album career includes party anthems such as "Bring It All Back" and "Reach", heart-wrenching ballads, "Never Had a Dream" and unforgettable floor-fillers such as the massive "Don't Stop Movin'". Best is conclusive proof that "There ain't no party like an S Club party". --Georgina Collins

"Best - The Greatest Hits" not only sums up those 5 years but also the soundtrack to my childhood when I was in that transitional period between primary and high school, and always makes me think of that time with fond memories thus (perhaps even more so now I'm in my 20's), and the best thing about S Club was that each single they did took on something completely different to the last, hence why I thought I'd go through it track by track with my thoughts on each of the singles:
1. Bring It All Back: a perfect summer-y sounding debut, and their 1st number 1 - this was one of the first singles I ever brought on CD from Woolworths. They were good times!
2. S Club Party: their 2nd single, and one of their signature songs (judge all you want, but I still know the dance moves for this).
3/4. Two in a Million & You're My Number 1: double-a-side 3rd single, always reminds me of Christmas 1999 and the Millennium when I finally got their 1st album and blasted it all the time.
5. Reach: another huge hit - yes, it's totally cheesy but that's what I loved about it, you'd have to be pretty hardhearted not to love this song or even dance to it at a wedding disco (as I indeed have done).
6. Natural: my favourite song on their 2nd album "7" and it was after seeing the video for this one that I developed my (life long) crush on Rachel Stevens!
7. Never Had A Dream Come True: their 2nd number 1, Jo O'Meara's vocals on this beautiful Cathy Dennis written ballad were stunning.
8. Don't Stop Movin': this was their finest hour for me - a proper power-pop floor filler sung by Bradley McIntosh, a well deserved number 1 too.
9. Have You Ever: their last number 1, and their 2nd single released for 'Children In Need' - but not as strong as 'Never Had A Dream Come True' I felt.
10. You: as one critic wrote about this song, 'Like "Reach" was reimagined by Phil Spector' - and the video was the funniest one of theirs too. Was also their last single before Paul Cattermole left, taking the '7' out of their name.
11. Alive: as with 'Have You Ever', this was like 'Don't Stop Movin' mark II, only not quite as successful as I imagined they'd hoped it would be, certainly now they were a six piece.
12. Love Ain't Gonna Wait For You: epic is the word required here - all dizzying strings and squelchy disco, this was the real highlight of the 'Seeing Double' album.
13. Say Goodbye: still liable to make me cry to this day, if not for the near-on week I spent in shock after they announced their split.
14. Everybody Get Pumped: originally meant to be the B-Side of 'You' and then finally released on this album, this is very quirky sounding and very much reminiscent of the sound of their first album.
15. Bring The House Down: the single from the "7" album that never was, but still a corker, reminds me of the episode of their 'L.A. 7' series when they housesitted (and trashed) a Beverley Hills mansion!
So whilst a few of the tracks might not have dated so well, the ones that really do stand out are the ones that I feel will remain pop anthems even in another 10 years from now, whether they reunite or not. Cos' cliched though it may sound, there never was and their never will be another party that was quite like the S Club party.
Then, during cheese night at a club, I heard "S Club Party" and liked it. Soon after, I hearing "Don't Stop Movin'" and "You" on the radio, I was hooked. In fact, a couple of months ago I even dragged two of my distinctly reluctant flatmates to the new S Club movie, "Seeing Double."
So when I saw that a "Best Of" collection was being released, I was elated, and immediately picked it up. It contains their most successful songs, as well as a few new ones - most notably their final single, "Say Goodbye." The songs are their best - hits such as "Bring It All Back," "Reach," and "Alive" (as well as the songs I listed above) - so as expected, the CD is quite good.
In fact, my only problem with this CD is the inclusion of the previously unreleased song, "Everybody Get Pumped." In the liner notes, S Club's Bradley says that he thought a joke was being played on the group when they heard the demo version. There's a reason this song wasn't released - though it's not bad, it's very definitely lackluster, and doesn't have the infectious enthusiasm that makes most of S Club's other songs so good.
All in all, though S Club has disbanded, this CD serves quite well as both a greatest hits collection and as a symbol of the S Club phenomenon that lasted for four years - much longer than many other "manufactured pop groups." I think this CD is certainly something that the members of S Club can be proud of as a record of their achievements.
S Club Party - The song should have got to number one, its the one that really makes S Club.
Two In A Million - A fantastic song to end a fantastic year!
You're My Number One - This to me is the WORST song they've released still not as bad as Love Train. It's a bit cheesy for my likeing.
Reach - Again a little cheesy but this is a really catchy song and it had a big effect on the children back in 2000
Natural - This song is AMAZING, rachel has the best voice and looks. The remix so makes this song come alive.
Never Had A Dream Come True - A Christmassy song - yay!!!! I really like this - i sing this about 'someone' everyday
Don't Stop Moving - The RECORD of The Year no, no the MILLENNIUM, what more can i say
Have You Ever? - This is my favourite ballad by the club, it's really special
You - A Bit cheesy but the single mix is a bit better
Alive - bland but catchy perrrrrrrfect for a christmas parrrrrrrty - i think they tried to do another Don't Stop Moving but didn't quite work!
Dance - I like this!!!! - RnB goes down well with S Club 7
Love Aint Gonna Wait For You - A perfect single shame it's the last tho. i'm sure it will get to number one.
Say Goodbye - *sobs* This song is also a good ballad but not as good as LAGWFY or HYE or NHADCT. Still love it
Bring The House Down - Even tho it never was a single its still a number one in my head
