SUGABABES : Overload
If someone completely unfamiliar with the life story of the Sugababes was to watch this video now, they’d be completely confused. Yes, it’s a band with three girls (check), but that’s pretty much where the similarities end. Wait a minute – there’s a red head one? A slightly Asian looking one. And Keisha – well now she too has become a distant memory. Sugababes Mk.I burst onto the music scene in 2000 with ‘Overload’ – a song that we originally thought directly sampled the Six Million Dollar Man’s running theme (see what we mean HERE). It was effortlessly cool – and smashed the notion that all girlbands had to produce fluffy, cheesy pop. And kudos to those who wrote and produced it – it still sounds fresh as a daisy almost ten years on.
