Single Review: Girls Aloud - Sexy! No No No...

Girls Aloud

Release date

Out now

The sound

Things have been quiet on the Girls Aloud front since their Comic Relief collaboration with Sugababes - the noisy and raucous Aerosmith and Run DMC cover "Walk This Way".

By the sounds of Sexy! No No No, it doesn't seem like they want to settle down any time soon.

The song is yet another sample of their perfect pop: bold, sassy, slightly loopy and unbelievably catchy.

The words

Well, Girls Aloud lyrics have never exactly rivalled Shakespeare, and Sexy!... is no exception.

It sounds as though they're trying a different approach to getting the guy - instead of being "sexy", they've backed off.

But then they say that doing that is sexy, so the point they're trying to make is... who knows?!

It's best to keep the tune for dancing to, rather than thinking about.

Will you still be humming it next week?

Most likely! Girls Aloud songs have a knack of being hard-wired into your head from the first time you hear them.

Will it make the charts?

It's already at number four in the midweek chart, and will most likely continue their run of top 10 successes.

NR rating:

Newsround rating: four out of five
