With the recent news of Cheryl Cole‘s plan to record a solo album following the closure of the Aloud‘s Out Of Control Tour, I thought I’d put together my thoughts regarding the possibility for each Aloud’s individual successes if they were ever to go solo.
(Let’s face it, we have to do something to pass the time until the debut of Sophie Ellis-Bextor‘s video for “Heartbreak Make Me A Dancer.”)
Probable Title: My Tyme
Sounds like: Victoria Beckham‘s original solo album; Top 40 “urban” pop

Probable Title: Teardrops
Sounds like: Astonishing, breathy quirk-pop; Lykke Li meets Bats For Lashes
Actual Listenability: 10/10
Public Success: 5/10
Probable Title: Take It 2 The Top
Sounds like: Cascada; Hi-NRG covers of Girls Aloud favorites
Actual Listenability: 4/10
Public Success: 6/10
Probable Title: Nadine Coyle
Sounds like: Geri Halliwell‘s first solo album; crunchy pop confections, dance tracks, and torch songs.
Actual Listenability: 9/10
Public Success: 8/10
Probable Title: Wishing and Wishing

That sounds about right.
