This week I’m rolling back the clock to the heady days of 2005, the year Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, Youtube was created and MG Rover went bust. That’s right kids, this time round I’m tackling Sugababes’ number 1 smash hit Push The Button.
The Sugababes have a reputation as a pop hydra, chop off one head and they grow another. Their final incarnation may have contained none of the original members, yet the group is so much more than an interchangeable selection of individuals. In a grand tradition stretching back to the three witches in Macbeth, when these three young women come together as The Sugababes, regardless of who the three women may be, a special kind of magical pop foresight occurs.
