Lyrics Whole Again Atomic Kitten

Song Lyrics for “Whole Again” by Atomic Kitten

If you see me walking down the street,
Staring at the sky and dragging my two feet,
You just pass me by,
It still makes me cry but you can make me whole again.

And if you see me with another man laughing and joking doing what I can,
I won’t put you down, ’cause I want you around,
’cause you can make me whole again.

[Chorus:]
Looking back on when we first met,
I can not escape and I can not forget,
Baby, you are the one
You still turn me on,
You can make me whole again.

Time is laying heavy on my heart
Seems I’ve got too much of it since we’ve been apart,
My friends make me smile if only forĀ  while,
You can make me whole again.

[Chorus]

For now I’ll have to wait,
But, baby, if you change your mind don’t be too late,
’cause I just can’t go on,
It’s already been too long,
But you can make me whole again.

Wooooooooooooooooooooooo

[Chorus x2]

Ooh, baby, you’re the one,
You still turn me on,
But you can make me whole again.

THE STORY BEHIND “WHOLE AGAIN”

“Whole Again” is the fifth single released from English pop girl group, Atomic Kitten’s debut album, “Right Now”. It is the group’s biggest selling single to date and was the final single to feature Kerry Katona who left the group mid way through promoting the single. “Whole Again” was the first single released from the album in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. It was a massive success, reaching #1 in several countries and sold over 900,000 copies in the UK alone. Following the departure of Katona she was replaced a few days later by Jenny Frost just after the single reached number one in the UK, the offical video was reshot and Frost vocals appeared on the reissue of the groups debut album.

The group persuaded Virgin Records to release the single as a last ditch attempt to keep their record deal following the failures of previous single “Follow Me” and the initial release of their debut album. They were given a shoe-string budget for the single’s release with a basic video and previous photo shoots used for cover artwork. During promotion for the single, band member Kerry Katona announced her pregnancy and subsequent decision to leave the group. With the single’s release imminent, the group opted to recruit Jenny Frost as a replacement and continued their promotional campaign. Surprisingly the single was a massive success, beating U2 to the number one spot on the UK Singles Chart and remaining there for four consecutive weeks.

The music video for “Whole Again” was filmed on a very small budget due to the failure of previous single Follow Me. It features the girls singing in front of a plain white background and is similar in style to Sugababes’ video for debut single “Overload”. The original version of the video includes Katona, who departed the group just before the song’s release. Much of the video was subsequently reshot to feature new member Frost.

As a result of the single’s huge success in many international markets, a second music video was filmed for the U.S. release with a much larger budget. This version features the three girls walking through the streets of New York City and walking out into the countryside, gradually picking up more people along the way. The video ends with the camera zooming out on the field for Atomic Kitten’s old logo is invisible in a shape of a kitten. The US single release never materialised in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, but the video can often be seen on British music television channels.

The single debuted at number one in the United Kingdom with first week sales of 69,286 copies,[3] and since gone on to sell 962,494 copies in the UK alone. It stayed atop the UK Singles Chart for four weeks, becoming the longest-charting number one since Westlife at Christmas 1999, and the only single which increased on weekly sales during each week at number 1. It is the fourth best-selling single by a girl group of all time, after “Wannabe” and “2 Become 1” by the Spice Girls, and “Never Ever” by All Saints, as well as being the best-selling girl group single of the decade. It also became the thirteenth overall best-selling single of the decade.

In Australia, it peaked at number two in the charts, being certified double platinum for sales of over 140,000 copies. The single was also released in Germany and New Zealand, where it secured a number one position for six consecutive weeks on both countries. In Germany, the single was certified platinum, one of three singles by a girl group to ever be certified Platinum; the others being “Daylight in Your Eyes” by No Angels and Shame by Monrose. The single was certified double platinum in New Zealand, one of the best selling singles by a girl group of all time there. The song achieved the most success in the UK, Germany, New Zealand, Austria, the Netherlands, Ireland, Turkey, Singapore and South Africa.
