Someone said :
In all fairness, the girls wrote all their own songs
, unlike girls aloud. Whatever little talent they did have was their own, and not some wee wannabee manufactured trash made for the masses by conglomerate money making mogules whose only claim to music was to make as much money irregardless of talent.
So ya, maybe thier music was pants, but at least it was original.
They penned some lyrics (mostly in conjunction with professional writers), they did not write any music from what i know.
Not exactly sure what you mean by original, unless your refering to them not being a cover band there is nothing really original about them. They are the most successful girl band to date but they were nothing new, nore was their music style.
