Girls aloud guys, yeah, sound.

"Biology" received universal acclaim from music critics. The song was particularly notable for its informal structure. Popjustice referred to the song as "pop music which redefines the supposed boundaries of pop music." BBC Music said "the girls rip through a variety of styles, paces and Neneh Cherry-esque raps [...] all within the same song." Virgin Media praised the song for "blending the kind of saucy cabaret you'd expect to find in a gin-soaked saloon bar with a glorious chorus of fizzing, gliding synths and deceptively breakneck beats." The song was described as "about as far from tired formula as you can possibly get. It sounds like three separate melodies condensed into one, from the Muddy Waters-apeing riff at the start, through to the glorious pop sheen of the verses, and having the sheer balls to wait two minutes before even introducing a chorus." musicOMH noted that the song "breaks all the rules of manufactured pop" and stated that "Biology is yet more proof that Xenomania write the best pop songs around and that Girls Aloud are pretty much the perfect group to sing them [...] it's the single of the year." Stylus Magazine also praised the song.


Peter Cashmore, writing for The Guardian, described "Biology" as "the best pop single of the last decade". Peter Robinson of music website Popjustice said the song was "a great example of a song which pleased people with no passion for pop but also managed to hit the spot with those who totally loved the stuff [...] At once avant garde and relentlessly, demented mainstream, 'Biology' quickly became one of Girls Aloud's signature tunes." In September 2006, "Biology" won the award for the Popjustice £20 Music Prize, an annual prize awarded by a panel of judges organised by Popjustice to the singer(s) of the best British pop single of the past year.

Stig - Can you please replace the dodgy pub-rock cover version on your playlist with the masterpiece Boss wants.

Yeah, there are a few tracks I'd never heard before - and now I'm happy I have.

Fair enough. I'll hold back Cash's Hurt, Cohen's Suzanne and Paint it Black for the time being.
