Reach S Club 7
Song Title: Reach
Artist: S Club 7
Date of release: 22 May 2000
Description: ” Reach ” by the British pop group S Club 7 was released in 2000, the song was written by Cathy Dennis and Andy Todd. With an up-tempo video, the song was a commercial success and went on to reach number two on the UK Charts. Despite sales of almost 124,000 in the first week alone and staying at number two for three weeks, ” Reach ” didn’t manage to knock Sonique’s ” It Feels So Good ” of the number one spot.
The song was the theme tune to the second series of the popular CBBC series called L.A. 7 which featured the group. ” Reach ” was also played as the last song on the CBeebies live shows.
With sales of 588,000 in the United Kingdom, the song remains one of S Club 7’s most popular songs. ” Reach ” was the fifth track released from the group and the group’s first single from the Album, 7. Intended as a feel-good song, it talks about following your dreams and to ” reach for the stars “, therefore fulfilling whatever dreams you may have and going on the achieve anything you want.
A favourite song on tour the group would later comment on how well ” Reach ” would go down with fans of all ages. Notable was the absence of releases in Australia and the United States; both countries had releases of the group’s first three singles from the debut Album. The reason is still not apparent.
The music video for ” Reach ” is a small quiet town called Littlerock in California USA. Beginning the video, the people of the town go about their daily lives until S Club 7 appear in a large pink bus. The idea of the video is with the arrival of S Club 7 on their pink bus will spread joy to the town’s occupants.
