Play - To Live And To Die For  

Play are well known as the queens of song stealing. No-one is safe when they're recording a new album, with past victims including Liberty X, Billie Piper, Atomic Kitten and even our Swedish queen of aceness, Robyn! On this basis and also with them being a Swedish girlband, Play's other songs should be great, but they very rarely are. This is the only song of theirs that I really like, but it is brilliant enough to almost make up for it. It's 100% pure pop, as happy as a 5-year-old on Christmas morning and even cuter than that. Think A*Teens, S Clubs 7 and 8, early Robyn - this sounds just like the glory days of pop and you'll soon forget we now have a chart which this could not even enter if released as a single. Although Play have mainly concentrated on American makret, they have released a few CDs in Sweden including the 2002 album Us Against The World, which this song features on. PS. Doesn't the ginger one look like Nicola Aloud in that photo?
