Blue- All Rise: Top 10 Singles in US and UK and Memorable Chorus of a Song

Blue- All Rise
United States- Blue almost tried to break the American market but didn’t push through so the album never had a top 10 single in the country. If they tried, they may had at least hit single/s in the country.

United Kingdom- Blue became one of the top boybands in UK during their time. This debut album of them actually had a total of four top 10 hits from total of four singles released. Those songs were:
All Rise- #4
Too Close- #1
If You Come Back- #1
Fly By II- #6
All of their singles released managed to reach top 10. One of their songs called “Best in Me” was released particularly in Asia so it did not managed to chart in United Kingdom. Two of their songs reached number 1 which happens rarely in some groups. The first one was “Too Close”, an American group Next original and the R&B ballad “If You Come Back”. “All Rise” can still be credited for the guys’s success though as it charted higher in other countries.

Blue’s biggest hits were the two number 1 hits in UK. However, “Too Close” wasn’t their original song, and “If You Come Back” was their original. The ballad was also my favorite song from the album so I picked the song to share and its chorus. Enjoy the video and the chorus of the song below:

If You Come Back (Chorus)
And I swear, If you come back in my life
I’ll be there till the end of time
(Come back to me
Come back to me
Back into my life)
And I swear, I’ll keep you right by my side
‘Cause baby, You’re the one I want
(Come back to me
Come back to me
Back into my life)
Oh yes you are

Album’s Singles Review: Blue “All Rise”

While boybands like Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, and Westlife are dominating the music scene, Blue was introduced to the music industry. They came out with their debut album “All Rise”, also the title of their first single. The group though don’t want to be labeled as a boyband, but well, they can never change the perception of people towards them being a boyband. Anyway, their music is way different from other boybands. The album “All Rise” isĀ  a UK charttopper as well as going multiplatinum.

All Rise
It is refreshing to hear a new sound from a group of boys. This song is a simple R&B song and it was a success in European countries including UK.
Rate: 7.25 out of 10

Too Close
The boys made their own version of this R&B hit original by R&B boy group, Next. The song is almost exactly the same with its original, with its music background slightly changed.The song became the group’s first ever UK number one single.
Rate: 5.75 out of 10

If You Come Back
The song is pop R&B ballad released as their third single. It is a beautiful song with great vocals of Ryan. The song became the group’s second UK number one hit, as well as doing well in Asia.
Rate: 8.5 out of 10

Fly By
“Fly By” was released as the last offical single for “All Rise”. It is a pop R&B song reminiscent of their first single “All Rise”. There’s a part which reminded me of Notorious B.I.G. after a sample was used from the rapper’s posthumous number one single “Notorious”. The song charted in many countries with UK, where it peaked inside the top 10.
Rate: 6.75 out of 10

Best in Me
This song was not officially released as a single for “All Rise”. It was a big hit in Asia though, particularly in the Philippines where it was a big radio hit.
Rate: 8 out of 10
