JLS Salute ‘The Sound Of Music’ In Latest Single “The Club Is Alive”

British pop quartet JLS revealed the single art for their dance track “The Club Is Alive,” and it features all four members stopping traffic with their fierce, dreamy-eyed stares. (Though we have to agree with Pop Justice that JB looks kind of glum in the pic—maybe he’s concerned about Aston’s inability to keep his eyes on the road?) Listen to the lads’ single, which includes an interesting nod to one particular Broadway show.

JLS start the track off with a direct Sound of Music homage, declaring “The club is alive with the sound of music.” We’re not completely sold on this musical theatre reference in this type of song, but the track (produced by Steve Mac and co-written by Andrew Frampton and Savan Kotecha) swiftly picks up the pace as it turns into a roaring electro-club dance anthem, with the boys teasing, “You can be the DJ, I could be the dancefloor, you could get up on me” during the chorus.

Many other JLS fans are not feeling this track, but we’re on the fence. Besides the Auto-Tuned Broadway musical sample giving the song its title and hook, we’re mostly digging it.

How about you? Are the boys ready to hit it big in the U.S. with this club jam? Or should they get rid of the Auto-Tune and stick to their four-part harmonies?

    “Are the boys ready to hit it big in the U.S. with this club jam?”

    lol, the boys have already flopped with “Everybody In Love”. They already had their “one shot”, the American dream is over for them. I wonder how much their label paid you to “push” them as hard as you are trying to. Surely you know well they are a bunch of talentless bums that sell records by lifting their shirts at every opportunity.

    Shame on you Idolator.

    I question you ability to spot talent. You bashed the very talented Leona Lewis to no end even going as far as claiming that the only reason she was doing well was due to Oprah. of course you then had to back pedal very quickly and admit that in fact the song and the album were both doing well on their own.

    Wow, we could have been paid?!? Zoinks! We missed out on that one.

    I don’t recall bending over backwards to praise these fellas, or overly trash them. I just listen and judge from what I hear, not what someone is telling me to hear. And when I interviewed these charming four fellas last weekend at Wango Tango, not one of them lifted their shirt.

    Instead of trying to trash Chris Brown, they might have wanted him to write for them. At least he has 300,000 fans in America. Not the ten who came to see them at the mall when they were here according to what they said themselves. And Chris is at least still making his money writing songs. He might need to take a break on stage but paper he still gets. Jay-Z i mean really. The boys traveled all the way here for you to make them stars and this is what you all came up with. They are handsome guys but the looking sexy thing to sell only works for Rihanna. I wanted them to make it and spoke a lot about them, but I am mad they let me down (just kidding)
