Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me

Songfacts®:

  • The second single from Girls Aloud's Greatest Hits album Ten, was written by Rachel "Maiday" Moulden, whose previous credits include Wretch 32's UK chart-topper "Don't Go." Jim Elliot, who has also worked with Kylie Minogue and Ladyhawke, produced the cut. "After I heard the first line, I said, 'STOP! That's our song'," said Nicola Roberts.
    Kimberley Walsh added: "As soon as I heard it, from the first line onwards, I agreed with Nicola – we had to get that song."

    The song received its first play on BBC Radio 2 at 11.30am on November 3, 2012.
