Can it really be the end for Girls Aloud? Will Santa be delivering one final calendar to my doormat this year? Say it isn't so. But it may well be as a pop groups 'Greatest Hits' usually means the end.
If so, this isn't as good a final hurrah as I would have wished for. Granted the team behind their recent material has managed to come up with the most ridiculously inane lyrics yet, something I thought they would find hard to do. But they've managed to graft them on to a briefly invigorating tune that, sadly, pales after a few plays.
But if you buy the luxury edition of this single you're still in for a real treat. Not only do you get the single, you get a cracking house remix, the video, a karaoke video, the brilliant theme tune to their reality TV show 'Models', which really should have been the single, and a hits megamix!
If that wasn't enough there's even a set of postcards for your delectation! Bargain. Now I just need the announcement of a Christmas single to keep me going.

OK, so the lyrics won't ever win the Booker Prize, but this is a great throwaway pop song. Its catchy and rocky, but like a lot of Girls Aloud songs it does show up the limitations of the girls' reedy, breathless vocals.
And I really can't understand the fuss about Cheryl Cole .........
