Tie me down and strangle me with a feather boa if this isn’t the best pop song since Diana Ross took off her diamond kitten heels and hung up her ball gown for the last time! These 3 minutes of glitter soaked disco boogie capture that WONDERFUL feeling of being in a nightclub at midnight, with a ridiculously expensive cocktail in your hand, stumbling onto the dance floor to bop and twirl to your favourite 80s hits. This song could have been written in any of the past 3 decades and that’s part of its charm. Craftily, it manages to sound retro whilst being utterly, defiantly, modern.
It’s beside the point that Sophie Ellis Bextor is the coolest pop girl around at the moment. You get the impression that she doesn’t really give a damn – with a raised eyebrow and her tongue firmly in her cheek, she’s somehow maintained that indie cred that Posh Spice and Kylie would KILL for. And STILL managed to nab the sky-scraping chart positions!
This is, frankly, tastier than Tim Wheeler dipped in chocolate and laid out on a bed of rose petals. Buy it, steal it, make it yours!
