If This Is Love – 10th Year Anniversary

If This Is Love – 10th Anniversary

Today, isn’t just like any other. On the 27th July 2008, a new girl-group called The Saturdays entered the world of music by releasing their debut single ‘If This Is Love’, us like many others of you out there, rushed out to our local HMV, maybe even Woolworths (Yes, it was still open then, just!), your local Zavvi (Formally Virgin Megastore), or even just your local store to grab hold of the CD Single! Many did embrace the iTunes store and download it digitally too – our original post from 10 years ago (we feel old!) is available to view here.

Over the next few years, The Saturdays spawned 18 odd singles, four odd albums, a couple of EPs and a greatest hits – they also spawned a few kids of their own too, but more importantly the group created friendships – a common interest shared by a group of people who would have probably never had met, or crossed paths. Many friendships, and relationships, are still going strong today, some might have slipped and gone, and some might unfortunately be no-longer with us, but are never ever forgotten.

So here’s to If This Is Love, and the journey it started for all of us over the years, to the highs it brought us, to the many times it bought us all together to share a laugh, a joke, a drink or two or a meal. To the times it made us travel far too long across the country to see the girls do a 10minute set at a random festival (and to Stoke!), and more importantly to Frankie, Una, Vanessa, Rochelle and Mollie, the five girls who made all this possible.

Thank you!


If This Is Love – 7 Today

Well this has been an epic journey, and if you’ve been here since the start than well done to you as well as to us!

On the 27th July 2008 a certain girl group released their debut single ‘If This Is Love’ and yes this site was around then and you can click on our original post here (The image isn’t loading for some reason tho!)

Obviously this was the start of everything new, the website launched 3 months before the single came out anyway and as I said previously if you’ve been here as long as we have been then give yourself a nice pat on the back!

 

Onwards and upwards … keep strong #TeamSats!

“Up” iTunes Report – Day1

After a whole day on iTunes, the girls have been able to catapult into the top20 at #15 on the main charts and #8 on the pop chart! Congrats to the girls and the fans, awesome job!

In the meantime, “If this is Love” manages to hold onto the #67 spot on the main charts and #23 on the pop chart! Which by the way, “If this is Love” climbed 14 places to #76 on it’s 11th week on the Official UK Singles Chart this week. Good times indeed!

Now for you fans out there worried if this is a good start or not for “Up”, let’s go back in time and you’ll find that after a full day of charting, “If this is Love” was located in the top 30 at #24. So there is definitely improvement there, again great job to the fans and of course the girls themselves for putting out such an ace single!
