|S Club 7 singles chronology|
"Bring It All Back" is the debut single by British pop group S Club 7. It was co-written by S Club 7, Eliot Kennedy, Mike Percy and Tim Lever for the group's debut studio album S Club (1999). Kennedy, Percy and Lever also produced the song. It was released on 7 June 1999 as the album's lead single. Bring It All Back was used as the theme for the band's first CBBC series Miami 7 as well.
Despite receiving a mixed reception from music critics, "Bring It All Back" was a massive chart success. It reached the top spot in the United Kingdom and was certified Platinum, whilst also reaching the top ten in Sweden and Ireland. The song was released in North America on 28 September 1999, shortly before their television show Miami 7 became popular in the United States, and peaked at number 22 on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales the same week. The song has sold 675,000 copies in the UK as of May 2015.
"Bring It All Back" is notable for being the only S Club 7 single on which all four female members share lead vocals. The first verse is shared by Jo O'Meara and Rachel Stevens, while the second verse is split between Tina Barrett and Hannah Spearritt. Bradley McIntosh, Jon Lee and Paul Cattermole provide backing vocals and additional vocals on the final chorus. The single contains an extended version of the track with an additional refrain and chorus, as well as a club remix by K-Klass, which appears on all international versions of the single.
The single also contains two B-sides, "So Right" and "Hello Friend". "So Right" features in the sixth episode of Miami 7, and as a bonus track on the Japanese version of the band's debut album, and is an up-tempo number which resembles fellow album track "Everybody Wants Ya". "Hello Friend" was one of only three songs from the band's debut album era not performed during Miami 7, alongside "Our Time Has Come" and "Friday Night". However, it was later performed during Viva S Club to mark the departure of Paul Cattermole from the band.
Two music videos exist for the track. The first, recorded for use in the British and Australian markets, features newly recorded scenes of the band performing the track on a beach stage in Miami, recorded during the filming of Miami 7, as well as additional montage clips from several episodes of the series. The end of the video shows a group of people watching the band as the cameras pull away. Most notably, there are two beach stage scenes in the video that show Barrett with a different hairstyle compared to the rest of the video.
The second video was recorded for use in the United States, and features scenes of the band performing the song in an American trailer park (recorded during the filming of the band's TV special Boyfriends and Birthdays), as well as in a courtroom, scenes taken from episode 10 of Miami 7, "Court in the Act". The video also features clips of the band performing the song poolside, which are taken from the opening credits of the series.

In November 1999, the students of Hamilton, New Zealand's Aberdeen Primary School sang the song to then-Prime Minister of New Zealand Jenny Shipley. The song was also covered by Taiwanese pop singer Jolin Tsai and re-titled "Don't Stop" for the 2000 album Don't Stop.
