  1. So glad i live with a bus stop 10 metres from my bedroom so i can catch cheap and environmentally friendly public transport instead of being a greedy Tory and driving a nasty, dirty, polluting car everywhere causing congestion and pollution. I really am doing the public a service and you should too.

      What's a Merdawna?

       

      Actually she did talk about how she could emulate that vocal style when she was a demo singer. Its a shame the demos have never really leaked. The only one we have is the BOP Weakness Of The Body recorded in 1986/87 when she was 16.

      @I Brings That Levity Unfortunately, I cannot blame 4.0 for the loss of the Sugababes sound, because the majority of Sweet 7 was recorded before Keisha's exit; only thing Jade did was re-record her vocals. It was the influence of Roc Nation and their influence of a more American-sounding record.

      1.0 work now, simply because of how Siobhan's voice has matured since her departure, and that's to their benefit. 2.0, IMHO, produced their most-known hit. Siobhan completely changed this song, and while I do love it, it is missing Heidi's flavour to it:

      What's your fave ORIGINAL song from each lineup?

    3. Billie Frank

      Billie Frank

      @Ruthless Love i know what you mean, however i was more meaning vocally. As in it just didn't sound like the Sugababes without Keisha's voice. As i say i'm pretty sure she had lost interest by that point hence why they went with the much more generic pop sound. And yes i would agree they were trying to make them more American sounding and compete against The Saturdays. For me it was always Keisha and/or Mutya who carried the group vocally, they had the most unique/strongest voices.  

       

      You have to keep in mind when they first started they were barely based the age of 16 (actually i think Mutya was 15...), so it's to be expected that their voices hadn't matured yet, especially Siobhan. However now they're all strong and great singers, i don't think the band ever had a bad singer and they were always vocally much stronger than their peers (cough Girls Aloud, cough Cheryl & Kimberly... Who i also love but).

       

      I think if 1.0 were to redo some of 2.0/3.0s songs there would be ones where it does and doesn't work, but that's just down to the nature of their tones. I agree that Ugly wouldn't really work with Siobhan nor would Girls - unless they changed the arrangement.

       

      In terms of my favourite songs they'd have to be.

      1.0: Flatline (if you include it) i honestly just adore that song.

      2.0: Hole In The Head

      3.0: About You Now (i have no option but to pick this for nostalgia reasons, i was obsessed with it when it came out). That aside i love Girls, Denial and No Can Do. 

      4.0: Wear My Kiss

      What are yours?

Here in Italy almost Nobody mentions Brexit, once in a while. However, the news said If a No-Deal Brexit happens, there might be the biggest Economic Crisis since Wall Street. Even my Brother's College Professor who is also an Economist said that during one of the classes. I still hope they won't or they find a compromise for the Deal or force the Prime Minister who I hate to extend it.

  16. I don't even care if she was sick at the time and not vocally 100%. This performance will always just totally slay.

     

    The way she says "NO" to her backup singers at 1:44

     

    The way she saved the voice crack at 2:06 with that staccato run.

     

    The growls at 3:33 and the verse that follows with the iconic "Growwwwwwwwwnd"

     

    The iconic run at 4:37 which broke the human land speed record.

      Your argument is flawed there on the basis that Mariah was more successful in the four largest music markets. (US, Japan, UK & Germany), in fact in all of those markets Emancipation outsold B2B so if Mariah is local Xtina must just be irrelevant. Most of Mariah's albums sold more outside the US than they did in it btw.
