Finally, I got the chance to review Santa Baby (below) by the Sugababes- my favourite girl-band. And I have to say it is the best cover of Santa Baby I have ever heard. The girls have managed to bump this song into the top-five of my festive favourites.
The whole song has an electrifying live feel to it, with the stripped-down vocals and harmonies, and the simple drum-stick banging in the beginning is just the icing on the cake.

Amelle's voice is excellent, and her low register complements the harmonies to a tee. The production is incredibly smart, and this must be the best the girls have sounded in ages- Heidi sounds so sweet, and Jade's adlibs and powerful background vocals are just what this song needs. This cover is very original, and the girls sound great on it. I'm not expecting this to chart amazingly well, as it's being on the 21st (who's idea was that?), but it's a must-have for all die-hard fans. Even if you aren't a massive fan, this should be on every one's Christmas playlist this year.

If there's one thing this song has achieved, it has cemented Jade's place in the new and fresh Sugababes and told everyone that she is here to stay. Pure Christmas perfection, and one of the best covers I've heard in ages.
