Single review: Just3 - Stand Tall

Just3 - School friends Lauren Irwin, Steven Irwin and Kaytie Farell

Release date
13 June 2005

School friends Lauren Irwin, Steven Irwin and Kaytie Farell, who make up Just3, sound a bit Avril Lavigney. The single starts with a soft lullaby and breaks into a rocky, poppy chorus.

They have a really powerful anti-bullying message. "Stand tall, be strong. You know it's wrong." Just3 wrote Stand Tall after a friend of theirs was bullied.

Will you still be humming it next week?
Definitely! It has a really catchy chorus and the build up to the electric guitar solo is gripping. By the time it kicks in, you feel like you really are standing tall!

Chart worthiness
With 10 per cent of money from its sales going to ChildLine, it's very worthy and should do well.

NR rating:

Newsround review graphic 4/5

Have YOU heard this track?

I think that the song is a great way to stand-up to bullying. It's soooooooo catchy too! Well Done!

Best song I've heard for a while - it's also for a great cause. Everyone should buy it for ChildLine.

I like it because it is catchy and it will make bullies think more of the way they are treating people by the way they look or dress or even where they shop.

I think this song will be big! I have been bullied and will buy this track because it is so wrong just to beat someone up by the way they look!
Jessica, 12, Kington

I heard this song on GMTV on Wednesday morning and it totally rocked. It's also for a good cause so there's no reason not to buy it . I can't wait till it's out at the shops!
Anna, 14, Brebury

I think it is brilliant. Is there a video?
