Little Mix wish they had sung some of TLC's songs.

The 'How Ya Don'?' girl band are huge fans of the 90s girl group, and count some of their singles among the most perfect songs.

Speaking to music streaming service Spotify, Leigh-Anne Pinnock said: "I wish that we'd done [TLC's] 'No Scrubs' or 'Unpretty', those were kind of perfect - but right now I'd also say Bruno Mars' 'When I Was Your Man'. That is a perfect song."

Bandmate Jesy Nelson added: "Adele's 'Someone Like You' - the words to that are just amazing."

Jade Thirwall weighed in with her favourite as "'Lately' by Stevie Wonder - I'd nominate that."

The group also gave their tips for the best tracks to start a party with, choosing some contemporary classics.

Leigh-Anne said: "Flo Rida's 'Wild Ones' was my song of last year and I still bang it out all the time. I absolutely love it."

Perrie Edwards added: "Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' 'Thrift Shop' gets me in the mood. But Fatman Scoop's 'Be Faithful' sends everyone nuts."

Jade added: "I Gotta Feeling' by Black Eyed Peas is a bit obvious, but it always works."

Little Mix's debut album 'DNA' is out now. To read the full interview with the band visit
