"Reach" is a song by S Club 7, released as a single on May 22, 2000. "Reach" is an up-tempo track co-written by Cathy Dennis and Andrew Todd (of British electo-rock band "Republica" fame). [cite web|url=|title=Lyrics: Reach|publisher=EMI] Although only reaching #2 in the UK charts, the song is arguably their most famous. Reach was the theme tune to the second series of the group's CBBC series, "L.A. 7".

In November 2006, it was revealed that an Aberdeen oil company named after the song, Reach Exploration, has discovered oil in the waters off Scotland. The husband and wife owners of the company named their company "Reach" after listening to the song played by their children.

ong information and music video

"Reach", the fourth single from S Club 7, is an uptempo, feel-good track. The song discusses how, if you follow your dreams, and "reach for the stars", you're destined to fulfill your goals. Like songs before it, "Reach" sees vocals shared around the group.

The song was a popular track on all three of their arena tours. The group often commented on how audience members of all ages would "go crazy" for the song. On the "S Club United" tour, a clip from the "Reach" video of Paul singing was played during his part.

The music video takes place in a small, quiet American town. At the start of the video, many of the townsfolk and going about with their everyday lives, until, all of a sudden S Club 7 arrive in a large pink bus. There are strong contrasting colours in this music video, with the dull appearance of the town and the people in it, contrasting with the bright colours of S Club's pink and yellow bus.

In the video, S Club 7 have arrived to spread a little joy to the people in the town. To symbolise this, they distribute neon bubblegum which, when the townsfolk chew them, they become happy and realise that their dreams can be met, and are not limited to just a small town. Throughout the video, many groups of people - such as, the local school kids and a brass band - come to see the group as their drive through their town.

At the end of the video, with their job done, S Club exit the town in their pink bus, by driving into the distance, eventually lifting up off the ground and disappearing.

It was revealed that the smoke that was omitted from the S Club bus when any candies were given made the extras on set cough and splutter, meaning many shots had to be taken more than once.

Alternate Versions

There have been many alternate vocal takes of "Reach" which have been heard due to remixes of the track. The Almighty remix has Jon singing Jo's first verse, whereas the Steve Anderson remix has Jo and Bradley dividing Jon's verse between them and Jo also takes Paul's middle 8 section. There has been no official word on why these vocals exist or indeed why they were used on the band's official remixes.
