GIRLS ALOUD | You Freak Me Out

LYRICS:

You hate the way I'm always watching videos
11:30 and you just can't sleep
You think whatever I have playing on my stereo
It's so pathetic that it makes you weep

And the beat goes on when I get back home
And I run straight past you to the telephone
And my feet don't fit in your sensible shoes
But you just won't quit 'till you kill my groove

Whoo!, it freaks me out
I've got to scream, I've got to shout
Whoo!, it freaks me out
Like Halloween, I've got no doubt

I think you're weird, it's written on your resum�
You say I'm stupid and my best friend too
And if I smile, you think I'm doing it to get my way
And if I don't, I�ve got an attitude

And the beat goes on when I get back home
And I run straight past you to the telephone
And my feet don't fit in your sensible shoes,
But you just won't quit 'till you kill my groove

And
Whoo!, it freaks me out
I've got to scream, I've got to shout
Whoo!, it freaks me out
Like Halloween, I've got no doubt

Whoo!, it freaks me out
I've got to scream, I've got to shout
Whoo!, it freaks me out
Like Halloween, I've got no doubt

Whoo!, it freaks me out
I've got to scream, I've got to shout
Whoo!, it freaks me out
Like Halloween, I've got no doubt

REVIEWS:
x Woo! This is not very good, to be honest. This new track is from a Disney soundtrack and geez, it sounds like it. It sounds a little like Shampoo (remember them? Viva! La Megababes! What a song that was, and like the Aloud, they once covered East 17), except minus the crisp treatment of the guitars and beats and any semblance of personality from the singing. And the presence of a decent song, too. To be accurate, it opens with a guitar, a rockish beat and a flat, lifeless melody. The only brief moment of energy or excitement is the "woo" in the chorus, and when a lovely synth line comes in before the ROCK! SOLO! which, unlike good rock solos, isn't even remotely fun or silly. It's all too restrained and polite, and what's most annoying is that just as the song's fading out, there's one of those great Swirling Pop Keyboard Melody Bits, and if that had been used a bit more liberally, the song wouldn't have seemed so limp.
