‘Can’t Say Goodbye’ was as much a statement of defiance for Pop! as it was a familiar tale of disco-heartbreak.
‘You’ll Be Sorry’ saw Steps hit back with a massive ‘f**k you’ (and a brilliant B-side) after years on the receiving end of heartbreak.
‘Deeper Shade Of Blue’ was a watershed moment for Steps, marking a significant shift in their sound and thrusting them in a bold new direction.
Pop!’s third – and final – single ‘Serious’ saw the group go out on top. Or, as close to the top as they were ever going to get.
Steps released their third single in the summer of 1998. And just like that, ‘One For Sorrow’ was the moment everything fell into place for the group.
‘When I Said Goodbye’ saw Steps fulfil the obligation that every pop act must release a ballad once per album – even if no-one really wanted them to.
