The 3 biggest British girl groups of the past 20 years have been the Spice Girls, Girls Aloud & Sugababes. Which one do you think has the strongest discography and which do you think is each groups best work? Spice Girls got 9 UK #1 singles, Sugababes got 6 UK #1 singles and Girls Aloud got 4 UK #1 singles.
And yes, I realise that Girls Aloud and Sugababes are not too well known worldwide but their success has been huge over the years in the UK.
And for anybody unfamiliar with the Sugababes, you will notice by their album covers and their line-up is forever changing.
6 UK #1 singles - Freak Like Me, Round Round, Hole In The Head, Push The Button, Walk This Way (with Girls Aloud), About You Now.
4 UK #1 singles - Sound of the Underground, I'll Stand By You, Walk This Way (with Sugababes), The Promise.
They also had 20 consecutive top ten hits in the UK. Every single except 1 they have ever released has gone top ten.
9 UK #1 singles - Wannabe, Say You'll Be There, 2 Become 1, Who Do You Think You Are / Mama, Spice Up Your Life, Too Much, Viva Forever, Goodbye, Holler / Let Love Lead The Way
1. Sugababes (by a short margin) > despite the ups and downs and inconsistencies, they are offer the most diverse discography >>>
2. Spice Girls > soo good! but they're short lived
3. Girls Aloud - their albums are filler filled. singles >>>
Except I would place Girls Aloud #2 and Spice Girls #3. For me even though Girls Aloud albums are very filler-filled and their singles are their only truly amazing songs, albums like Tangled Up and their first album are fantastic. Spice Girls first two albums were good but haven't aged well and their third album was pretty bad although Holler was amazing. Plus, they only did 3 albums.
But I think that overall Sugbabes discography is stronger than GA and SG.
