If This Is Love – 10th Year Anniversary

If This Is Love

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!
