Despite this, Noel Gallagher took no legal action due to his own self-confessed borrowings from other artists. Girl Thing then found out, after the song was written, that their manager Chris Herbert (who also managed Hear'Say) had given the song to the newer band as their debut single, an act that upset Girl Thing. It sold 160,000 copies during its first day on sale and 549,823 copies during its first week, becoming the fastest-selling debut single of all time in the UK, [1] [8] a record beaten a year later by Will Young, the winner of the first series of Pop Idol, with his debut single " Evergreen" / " Anything Is Possible".

Pure and Simple" is the seventh biggest-selling debut single of the 21st century in the UK, [9] the second biggest seller by a mixed-gender group [14] and the UK's 96th best-selling song of all time. After the band's break-up, all members went on to achieve individual success elsewhere in the entertainment industry. Following the disappointing sales of the single, it was thought that they would be dropped by the label, though no official word came from Polydor.Hear'Say announced their split in October 2002, twenty months after their formation, citing "abuse from the public" as the main reason for their demise. They initially announced five dates which quickly sold out, causing the band to schedule thirty more dates. I dont know how people could say hear'say have no talent, after all wasn't it their voices that got them here in the first place?

Bridge over troubled water, a cover, but you only have to listen to this once to love it, and the third song - i can't stop thinking about it - a faster one.Controversy erupted when it was found out that Shentall had previously been a member of short-lived pop group Boom! Bob Marley gave the songwriting credit for "No Woman No Cry" to his friend Vincent Ford, who ran a soup kitchen in Trenchtown, the area of Kingston where Marley grew up.

The song and band were also criticised by several contemporary musical acts at the time, including Stereophonics, David Gray, and Blur. Many critics noted that the song had a distinct resemblance to Oasis's " All Around the World" and All Saints' " Never Ever". The five unsuccessful finalists went on to form the group Liberty (later renamed Liberty X after a legal dispute). After following the tv show i was slightly worried they would produce more manufactured rubbish but bin this at your peril! The chorus has a fantastic hookline, and the melody is exactly as it says, pure and simple, which is why this song works.

Great vocals and a wicked beat make this one of the most promising debut singles from a "pop group" in a long, long time!

Take Me Home Country Roads" is set in West Virginia, but John Denver had never been there when he recorded the song. Johnny Shentall, husband of Steps singer Lisa Scott-Lee, won the auditions, joining the group on 5 February 2002. Pure and Simple" was covered by America's Got Talent winner Bianca Ryan for her self-titled debut album in 2006.Pure and Simple" debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart after selling 550,000 copies in its first week, which, at the time, made it the fastest-selling debut single of all time in the United Kingdom. This single had the third fastest selling opening week (550,000 copies sold) in UK chart history and the biggest ever by a debut act and a non-charity record.
