Sweet As Suga

I have to admit to the reading public (yes, all four of you) that I have a soft spot for the Sugababes and in particular their new track (as of yesterday, Britain's Number #1 single), "About You Now":

And it comes as no surprise to anyone with their finger vaguely on the pulse of finely crafted pop to discover that it was written by Cathy Dennis.

Rubbish video, mind :) I mean, yellow?


  1. Well, I know what I think about YOU now.

    (sorry, couldn't resist it)

  2. Yes, I was expecting that. Back to early-90s Venezuelan drum & bass next time, I promise.

  3. Actually, doesn't it sound rather a lot like Pink?

  4. sounds a lot like a lot of things - pink, yellow or otherwise

    I can't say I can get that excited about it. I sometimes like stuff that gets into the charts, but this one doesn't do much for me

    doing some musical discovery stuff through these days. Have you tried it?

  5. Actually it's also a lot like Kelly Clarkson. Er, so some people might say. Who had heard her album and that. And perhaps played it in the car occasionally. You know, as people do. Funny, people.

  6. @robert: Yes, I am a big fan: fourstar

    And have you seen some of the analysis tools?



    Geektastic :)

  7. Well of course it really just sounds like Cathy Dennis who wrote hits recently for... Kelly Clarkson.

    And of course it was produced by Dr. Luke who has recently produced records for: Kelly Clarkson, Jibbs, Lady Sovereign, Kelis, Avril Lavigne, Marion Raven, Missy Elliott, P!nk, Lil' Mama, Mos Def, the Backstreet Boys, Daughtry, The Veronicas, Sugababes, and Britney Spears.

    So yeah, maybe you like that Dr. Luke sound?

  8. Well that's also an interesting point as to where the songwriting ends and the production begins, isn't it. Or are the two essentially co-mingled, as per the Xenomania team and their work with Girls Aloud and, amongst others, Sugababes.
