GIRLS ALOUD | Intro

LYRICS:

It's all about the hairline
and it's all about the game
Don't ask me to say my name
Don't ask me to share my fame
it's all about the flashlights,
it's all about the flames

You took the bait and now
you looking like a fool
Don't ask how we do it so cool
Don't ask us to break the rules
it's all about the bassline,
it's all about the clues

It's all about the hairline
and it's all about the game
Don't ask me to say my name
Don't ask me to share my fame
It's all about the flashlights,
it's all about the flames

You took the bait and now
you looking like a fool
Don't ask how we do it so cool
Don't ask us to break the rules
it's all about the bassline,
it's all about the clues

REVIEWS:
x (...) When you hear the opening whispered fusillade of "It's all about the hell of it/It's all about the game/Don't ask me to say my name/Don't ask me to share my fame" you realise that you're immediately being pitched into an even less hospitable climate than the previous two GA albums (which weren't exactly enticing you to come on a-their house, either). But the shocking "Intro" is the album's shocking denouement; as with the first 30 seconds of Frankenheimer's The Manchurian Candidate or the jitterbugging opening titles of Lynch's Mulholland Dr, if you miss it you miss the entire record's point. (...) Perhaps the least user-friendly intro to a mainstream pop record likely to be heard for some while (because we expect Eminem to blow our brains out three seconds into any given track one), it quickly squats to a halt. An alarm clock rings (so much more potently, because so much more subtly, than at the end of track one of the current Madonna album), there are some faraway crowd noises and suddenly it's a Dolly Mixtures 1982 A-side produced by Tony Mansfield. (...) Marcello Carlin

x "Intro" is, quite literally, an intro: 42 seconds of sports car launch party bass and our five heroes letting us know "It's all about the hangover, it's all about the fame." It's not quite pouting: the only thing Girls Aloud don't do well is showing actual emotion. Dom Passantino
