I had the privilege to spend a week in the Philippines. I was so busy, but I was buzzing and it was amazing. The only downside to the holiday was coming home, feeling depressed and catching a nasty virus. That doesn’t take away the good times I had though. I was very tired, and now I’m writing this I can understand why: a 13 hour flight and severe jet lag. Because I was only there for a week, I wanted to cram as much in as possible.
I was thinking of doing one for some other bands I like such as Nightwish or Depeche, but all of they're such class acts that it's hard to really rank those albums from worst to best. I've done for Christina Aguilera and Destiny's Child. Whilst in some bands I have solid favourites, it's hard to pinpoint where the others would lie. Sugababes on the other hand, I find is very easy to rank. They've been one of my favourite bands for nearly twenty years and they're one of the few bands I can remember their discography almost inside out.
There's always a time when rumours of old girlbands decide to put their differences aside and reunite. The original Sugababes came back with Flowers, Pussy Cat Dolls performed on the X Factor not so long ago. And there's rumours that Destiny's Child will be getting back together. Last month Beyonce's dad, Matthew Knowles, promised fans that 2020 will be the year they will reunite. Just as I was writing the first draft of this article, a new album was released.
Keisha Buchanan is better known as a founding member and one-third of the Sugababes. Sugababes has always been one of my favourite bands since they first started with Keisha, Siobhan and Mutya. The three of them alone are some of my favourite female vocalists. Siobhan went on to release two wonderful solo albums and Mutya did some really great songs.
Dutch trio the 004 dropped a new music video to compliment their new EP. As proud fans of pop, the song and the video is a nice thank you to all the lovely songs that have given us happiness over the years. No pun intended. I wanted to say that they were back, but they never really left. They've been working very hard. It won't be long until they start saying, new album coming soon.
