#20 Song of 2013

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#20 in my favourite songs of 2013 is “Flatline” by Mutya Keisha Siobhan. You can click on the song title to see what Poptastic Confessions had to say about it when it came out. 

Mutya Keisha Siobhan are the original line up of the British girl group called the Sugababes. But they lost their band name because along the way two of them quit and the last one remaining was let go. Read about the Sugababes history in Poptastic Confessions here and again here.

I didn't know about the Sugababes until their second album with Heidi and without Siobhan. I only got their first album with Siobhan a few years after I started liking the group — I think was in 2006. And even then, I wasn’t all that crazy about the music on the first album.

Siobhan, Keisha and Mutya were the original Sugababes 1998-2001.

So the reunion of the original Sugababes is an odd one for me. I like Siobhan and it is interesting seeing her back with Keisha and Mutya. But Heidi was my sort of my favourite member (perhaps it is a blonde thing), so it feels like someone is missing here.

Keisha, Mutya and Heidi were the Sugababes 2001-2005.

Having said that. I’ve really missed hearing Keisha sing. So it is nice to have her back. The new song “Flatline” did just that as a comeback single — it flatlined in the charts. But who cares about charts these days? Not me! While I like the song very much, it is a grower. And luckily it grew on me to make my Top 20!

The video has a very summer vibe. I like the spontaneous marching band and the shiny dresses, but I think the beach scenes are bit bizarre. Still, it makes you want to put your hands in the air! 

“Flatline” is available on the UK iTunes store. If you live in the US or elsewhere, you can buy it on mp3va.com with a prepaid account.

Cheers then,
