Girls Aloud: 'Untouchable'

By
Released on Monday, Apr 27 2009

The original version of 'Untouchable' serves as the centrepiece on Girls Aloud's Out of Control album: it's a declaration of mutual solidarity, a raved up torch song and a pop tour de force all rolled into one. It also runs to a whopping six minutes and 51 seconds, which only George Michael thinks is a realistic length for a pop single.

Consequently, 'Untouchable' has been been chopped and changed for its single release. It now comes in a shade under four minutes and the girls' vocals, for no apparent reason, have acquired a bit of vocoder in the edit. Some of the epic quality of the original has been lost, but 'Untouchable' remains surprising, thrilling and strangely moving - in short, classic Girls Aloud.
