How underrated is this amazing song?? Apparently it was produced by the Pet Shop Boys and you can definitely tell. It's one of my all-time favourites, so euphoric but melancholy at the same time. And Nicolas part/vocals are amaze.

I can't believe it only scraped the top 10 and wasn't a bigger hit!

And the instrumental (from the album version) on its own is gorgeous.

Absolutely agree... G.A had a pretty unique sound with this song. I wish they released more tracks with this feel.

I think other tracks from the girls that had this vibe were-
Untouchable & Call The Shots

I wish we had more like ^the above.

It's one of those songs that no other girl group could pull off, a brilliant song and a brilliant video.

and their 20th consecutive top 10.

I'm not a big Girls Aloud fan but I discovered this song on youtube and loved it. It has a 90s feel to it that I really like.

As it should be, considering that the excellent Pet Shop Boys wrote it.

Brilliant song, although I prefer the single version to the album. I'm a massive Pet Shop Boys fan too which makes it all the better

I think it's their best song but seemed to be ignored when it came out!

HATE this song! Worst track from GA for me. I think they have had some terrible songs though but the ones I hate are ones people seem to adore eg wake me up, loving kind, whole lotta history, love machine, the show wheras I really rate see the day that most people can't stand. Differing tastes eh

I like the intro and verses, but it has a weak and almost non-existent chorus that makes it one of their weakest songs

Is the single version of The Loving Kind different to the album one? I thought they were both the same. There are two different versions of Untouchable though and I prefer the album version of that song.

I love it. I've never really been a Girls Aloud fan, never owned any albums but I recently downloaded Ten and this song really stood out to me along with Girl Overboard.

Yes, it has a more slick sound, they have added more synths and (sadly) they lowered Sarah's vocal on the chorus.

Absent Elk's cover of this is genius -

I like the video to this song a lot.

I don't love the song though - there are parts which are really good (particularly Sarah and Nicola's lines) but the chorus just kinda plods along and seems clumsy imo.

Haha that was funny. The girls' faces were classic.

Sarah knew she was onto a duff one when she was singing it, these things happen live though aha.
