What if The Saturdays made a great single?

Suspend your disbelief for two minutes and try to visualise a world where The Saturdays weren't a mediocre photocopy of Girls Aloud with the personality of a sock drawer. Suppose they had made a single with Brian Higgins and Xenomania. One that fit right into Radio 1's playlist, but didn't come across as a slavish and vulgar attempt to duplicate the latest motifs in UK pop music.

Then, conjure up a picture of a board room Universal Records. You should make sure this room has a big grey table, a stereo that's been screwed to the wall and, in the corner, a gold disc from Taylor Swift that no-one wants. Put some people round the table to have a meeting, and imagine them agreeing to release a ravehorn radio remix of the new Saturdays single in place of the actual song.

In short: Imagine a Saturdays single that didn't leave you feeling hollow.

Would it sound like this?

The Saturdays - All Fired Up

Yes, it would.
