Sugababes - Every Heart Broken  

Are the Sugababes (or their management) totally mad? Why would you release No Can Do when you have a song like this on your album? There is another song which is a collaboration between Klas Ã…hlund and Max Martin, and still this one is better. Every Heart Broken is one of Klas' other contributions, and you've probably read about it on Popjustice under its original (and much better) name of Murder One. The lyrics are brilliant, but I mostly love how the song is just a great, traditional sing-along pop song: funny verse, building bridge, super-catchy chorus, funny verse, building bridge, super-catchy chorus, middle eight, super-catchy chorus. I'd also like to recommend Side Chick (including a rhyme of "knickers" and "ridiculous"!!), retro-tastic You On A Good Day, and the aforementioned Max collaboration, Unbreakable Heart, which is the song Chris Brown's Forever can only dream of being. After the disappointment and sell-outosity of Girls, I wasn't expecting much from this album, but I should have known better when Klas is involved.
