  1. You

    "You" was the 9th single released by UK pop group S Club 7 on 11 February 2002. The track is a very uptempo-retro number reminiscent of the group's third single "You're My Number One". The video was set in the 1950s and is described in the Best CD booklet as the "candyfloss-bright, tongue-in-cheek 50s pastiche". This track was the last single to feature departed band member Paul Cattermole and sparked the last leg of the S Club 7 journey. The song reached no. 2 on the UK Singles Chart. It also charted on the 2002 Year End Singles chart at number 70.
