New Sugarbabes video - 'Girls'

'Girls' is the latest single taken from the Sugarbabe's sixth studio album 'Catfights and Spotlights'. You may recognise the track from the Boots ads which ran last Christmas.  I'm really starting to adore this group. They are definitely at the cooler end of the spectrum in terms of Brit pop girl bands. I love the fact that they can all actually sing (shock, gasp) but yet they don't seem overly concerned about being papped at the hottest club, restaurant or bar. This greatly contrats with the overrated, minimally talented - Girls Aloud, who tend to hog most of the limelight. Maybe the Sugar ladies need to bag themselves a Premiership footballer, or starve themselves to oblivion to get a bit more attention. Yes indeedy, the entertainment biz is in a sad state of affairs right now.

Oh, and as a side-note,  if you haven't checked out the remix of Taio Cruz's 'Like A Star' featuring Busta Rhymes and the Sugarbabes, then try to do so. It's so refreshing to hear their soulful vocals over an R&B track.

I'm sorry but they should have left that classic alone.

I hate that song! I can just about bear the advert. Whilst Sugababes may not be as naff as Girls Aloud, I do think that they have not maximised their talents. With their voices they should be putting out better stuff than this. Still at least they dress better now, they used to look awful before.

@ Janice - Do you think? I think it's a pretty decent remake.

@ Ondo Lady - I agree they should be making more credible stuff, but let's not forget that this is the UK. Unfortunately 'naff' sells by the bucketloads.

It's just dry.
