better than the original? not really.
much different? apart from emmamelle’s pronunciation of “cooler” at the start of the song, there isnt *that* much difference.
does it signal the end of the ‘babes? god no! this is possibly their finest song to date, with any luck v3.0 will be around for at least another album or two
this song is one of the best pop songs of 2006. i guarantee it will still be one of the best by the end of the year. like “push the button” was one of the best singles in 2005.
lets see if Girls Aloud can compete (i like “whole lotta history”, but its no “red dress” beater!)… i do hope they try 🙂
