So Sugababes 1.0, Origibabes etc have finally spilled the beans on the most anticipated pop reunion since Lisa Scott-Lee sacrificed spending some valuable time on her island in Dubai. Mutya Keisha Siobhan might not seem like much of a name, it’s missing a comma for starters, but the raw ingredients for a worthy follow-up to One Touch are all there.
They should also have a good think about the following suggestions:
- Although it’s lovely that everyone’s put their differences aside – the sight of Keisha and Siobhan sharing an ice cream was until recently less imaginable than the unification of North and South Korea – they shouldn’t lose the original moodiness that made us fall in love with them in the first place.
- Whatever they do, they need to sell a gift version of their album which includes the Sugababes branded “stationery, paper gift wrap and paper gift-wrapping ribbons” which Mutya won the rights to last year. Just BECAUSE. *pictures Amelle scowling*
- A sequel to ‘New Year’ called ‘New Year’s Eve’ needs to happen, preferably released as a single on…New Year’s Eve.
- Even though Mutya and Keisha have obviously written and performed buckets of stuff from the 2nd and 3rd incarnation of the group, they should definitely stick to solely performing brand new and One Touch-era material. The idea of poor old Siobhan sat in her dressing room having to learn the lyrics to ‘Push the Button’ before a gig while Mutya is getting new acrylics isn’t a nice one.
- As a cheeky reference to the past, one of the new songs should include the made-up language that Keisha and Mutya used back in the day to exclude Siobhan.
- Finally, if history repeats itself and one person walks out then the entire brand and its royalities should automatically become the legal property of everyone in the world called Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan. There’s an incentive…
