What song IS the Sugababes to you?

Postby Jamie » 26 May 2012, 04:01

Obviously, the Sugababes have had many line ups over the years and therefore many songs of many different styles. You can think of the Sugababes and automatically think of a song that fits them perfectly. But what song would you say summed up the Sugababes for you?

My choice would be Ace Reject. Everytime I hear that, I remember the essence of the group. It's everything that they were, yet everything they weren't at the same time - if that makes any sense.

Erm for me it would be Hole In The Head, it brings me back to when the Sugababes embraced their individualities before TIMW where they started doing uniformed things. And it just reminds me of the best Sugababes line-up which was 2.0 and they had the best songs because they weren't the usual songs you would hear and that's what made them different, I miss that line-up but that will never happen again.

For me, I think it's "Round Round". That song kinda brought Sugababes to another level in terms of mainstream popularity. And although it's not my favorite song from the Babes, but it catches the Sugababes' essence, Mutya and Keisha on main verses (Keisha on her ad-libs) and Heidi on her famous middle 8. And this is how it started all the great Heidi's middle 8.

For me it is undoubtfully "Too Lost In You" I never ever get fed up listening o that perfect song.

If I had to choose an upbeat one it would be "Hole in the Head"

Bare with me on this one, but it's Surprise from Change :P

My favourite ever Sugababes song by my favourite line-up and I just think it's perfect! Amelle and Keisha singing side by side on the verses (both sounding great), Heidi timidly singing her middle 8 worse than the other two, Keisha ad-libs, they all sound great on it, the instrumental... :love: :love:

I know it sounds like an odd choice, but it's just got so many factors that I look and want in a Sugababes song that I can't help but love it!

"Ugly", I LOVE that song. Heidi is the queen of the middle 8..too bad she wasn't queen of the figure 8 when she was on the ice.

Overload definetly put Sugababes on the map, but it wasn't until Freak Like Me came and secured them in the pop world.

When Round Round got to no.1 I was pretty impressed because from what I remember, they were up against Hear'Say and some other tough competition. Thats when I felt pop music actually became quite cool.

Stitch mentioned Ace Reject, I feel that it was such a shame they didn't go with that as a single. I think that track def sums up Sugababes. Did they ever do it live?

No they never performed Ace Reject live which is a shame because I loved Mutya sounds amazing on it... however does anyone get the feel that the track was sped or the tone was changed because Heidi sounds awfully high and squeaky in it.

Overload, Round Round are the two main ones.

Never liked Heidi's part of round round tho.
