Despite losing two of the founding members, Sugababes were always a band that could offer pop perfection, despite their (too) often stops at the R’n'B station. They are also a band very well represented through their singles. Nothing’s As Good As You and Every Heart Broken would have been essential hits if promoted properly. But, after all, their 2008 album, Catfights and Spotlights could be called “an incident”, because it had so much great material, but created a little buzz, except for Girls, which was released so relatively soon after Denial, that most people thought it was from Change.
But all of this is additional information, the fact remains that Nothing’s As Good As You is a good non-single example of the Sugababes sweetness. Sometimes, they co-write the songs, sometimes they are just inspired in choosing producers. This song, co-written among others by V.V. Brown, has the 60′s feel that was in fashion last year, but it also has quality vocal hooks that will never sound outdated. Lyrically, we are dealing with a straightforward “I love you” song, with the girls singing simple lyrics like “I just can’t help the way that I’m feeling, Nothing’s as good as you, What is it that you make me so crazy, I’m so in love with you”. If you are able to leave behind all prejudices regarding sexy pop girlbands, you’ll discover a real feel-good sunshine pill over here.
