Blue- Guilty / Best of Blue: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Blue- Guilty
United States- Plans didn’t push through when breaking the American market. However, American singers were featured in a song from the album. It was “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours” with Stevie Wonder and Angie Stone.

United Kingdom- Blue continued to make a streak of top 10 hits in United Kingdom with their album “Guilty”. The album had released a total of four singles and all of them charted. Check their top 10 hits below:
Guilty- #2
Breathe Easy- #4
Bubblin’- #9
Blue scored a total of three top 10 hits in United Kingdom. Their biggest hit has been “Guilty” for peaking at number 2, whiel Breathe Easy did well at number 4. It is their only album to miss a number 1 single though, as their two previous albums did have number 1 hit/s. Their other single which failed to reach the top 10 was “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours” with the original singer of the song Stevie Wonder and R&B singer Angie Stone.

Since their biggest hit was “Guilty” for peaking at number 2, I will be sharing that song below, along with its chorus. Enjoy and see below:

Guilty (Chorus)
If it’s wrong to tell the truth
What am I supposed to do
All I want to do is speak my mind (speak my mind)
If it’s wrong to do what’s right
I’m prepared to testify
If loving you with all my heart’s a crime
Then I’m guilty

Blue- Best of Blue
United States- Blue had released a compilation album without any top 10 hit in the US.

United Kingdom- Blue had released just one single from the compilation album in United Kingdom. See the song below:
Curtain Falls- #4
Good thing Blue hit the top 10 before hiatus. “Curtain Falls” even became one of their notable hits.

Since “Curtain Falls” was the only single which became a hit from the compilation, I would like to share the song here. Check below and enjoy:

Curtain Falls (Chorus)
We’ll be ready when the curtain might fall
Feel my heart beating when the crowd calls
I gotta read between the lines
Cuz I’m living out the script of my life
Cuz we all got a part we must play
And I’ve done it but I’ve done it my way
I gotta read between the lines
Oohh (oohh)
In the script of my life
