    Our previous Steps thread ran for longer than any incarnation of the group. We can't not have one.

    Remember: it's spandex or nothing.

    Well, my dream of Lee discovering our massive Steps thread and deciding he wanted to fly to America to meet his number one American fan is dead now, I guess. I guess I'll stop sending him weekly tweets with links to the thread and my cell phone number now. :(

    Anyways, thanks for starting up the thread again, Mel. It's fitting that it be you since you started the other one.

    Since this is our new digs, I'll just hang these right here on the first page:

    I'm still very emotional. Still battling my grief... The skin pics of Lee helped though @Jason73 They really did. For a while when I couldn't get on the site and thought all was lost I was afraid I would never get to hate read Claire's book and share all the gory details with you two...

    I'm glad! Steps will help us get through these dark times. (Well, 2/3 of Steps will help us.) We can light up our SC world with the secret we're keeping. :D



    No! We need your post-hate read thoughts more than ever now. The best thing about the old thread was it's decidedly anti-Claire and H tone. We need to make sure the new thread carries on that tradition.

    Have we done this before in the other thread @Mel O'Drama and @Alexis ?

    I feel like we probably have, but here we go again:

    Rank the One For Sorrow remixes from favorite to least favorite. There's a million of them and if I've forgotten some, feel free to add them. If you feel like doing this, there's no rush. I was thinking maybe we could do it with Deeper Shade of Blue and 5-6-7-8 remixes at some point.

    WIP Mix


    Sleazesisters Anthem Mix


    Tony Moran Extended Club Mix


    Soul Solution Extended Vocal Mix
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuzITtNfU24

    Tony Moran Underground Club
    (I can't find a version on youtube.)

    Pimp Juice's Summer Fung 12"


    2012 Sleazesisters remix
    (I could only find an edit, not the full version)

    Here we go. Just for clarity I've opted not to include edits of remixes, such as the SleazeSisters Anthem Edit or the 7" version of Tony Moran's mix.

    1. SleazeSisters Anthem Mix
    2. Tony Moran Extended Club Mix
    3. Acappella Mix
    4. W.I.P. Remix
    5. 2012 SleazeSisters Remix
    6. Soul Solution Extended Vocal Mix
    7. Tony Moran Underground Club
    8. Ejump 17 Mix*

    I considered including the Instrumental and Karaoke versions, but I'm not sure if they qualify as a "remix". If they did, the Instrumental would be number 5 and the Karaoke Version would go between the 2012 and Soul Solution mixes.

    To date, the Summer Fling mix does nothing for me at all.

    * I'm not sure if the Ejump mix is official, and I can't find a video on YouTube.

    I'm still reeling from the fact that someone described STEPS' cover of Chain Reaction as "excrement" in another tread. I'm too distraught to do my list yet.

    Well, you could always do a list of excrement themed Steps songs. Like these classics:

    1. Flush Like The First Time
    2. Pull The Chain Reaction
    3. Turds Are Not Enough
    4. Bidet Best Forgotten
    5. Dumping Queen
    6. Only In My Drains
    7. Deeper Shade Of Poo

    I have to say I absolutely love the name of this thread. It's such a geeky fan name! Naming it after a B side/fan favourite was a great idea.

    Ten posts in and I've lowered the tone of the whole thread. :hide:

    It seemed appropriate considering everything that's happened with the forum. We may have lost about a thousand pages of Steps chat, but at least we have a jazzy new title. Every cloud has a silver lining and all that. ;)

    Bless whichever writer on the Emmerdale staff is a Steps fan. The Steps shoutouts that keep cropping up give this Emmerdale/Steps fan such joy. It's the little things in life . . .

    Tonight adorable village gay, Finn, helped annoying village idiot, David, stage his proposal choreographed to Tragedy. Because Finn is so cute, I'll forgive him for being H. Skip to 8:50 to see that scene. It's brief but it made me smile.

    I don't think they keep these soap videos up for very long on Daily Motion, so apologies if it's already gone before anyone gets to see it.

    I've only been watching Emmerdale for about three months and they've had Steps a topic of fun/discussion in three episodes so far.



    Two other occasions where I've seen soap characters promote an artist or band.

    Corrie - Les Battersby was always promoting Status Quo and the band eventually made an appearance in the Street
    Eastenders - Heather was obsessed with George Michael. She once stalked his house and took a yogurt pot lid from one of his bins. At least I think it was his house.


    Maybe 'H' & Claire will make their Emmerdale debut soon...

    Yes--it's definitely silly stuff. I hope it continues.

    And there was The Vamps on Hollyoaks too.

    Are you trying to get yourself banned from this thread? :D
