MANIA If You Need A Good Girl

As other websites are celebrating Brian Higgins and Miranda Cooper(Moonbaby), DONTSTOPTHEPOP thought it would only polite to rejoice Niara Scarlett and Giselle Sommerville. In following the footsteps of Made In London, these two girls have produced some of the catchiest melodies and written killer lyrics ever known to pop music for other artists such as Kylie, Cher and Savage Garden under the guise of the pop powerhouse Xenomania. The two girls released two singles, an online track, which we'd love to have and album promo that remained just that, an album promo.

If You Need A Good Girl came as the flipside to their first single Looking For A Place To Go as very much a Xenomania anthem. Give it sometime for it work its charm on you for it starts off pretty mundane but it slowly builds into a stunning polemic of bitchpop. Love the thick beat and watch out for that rude word too.

Though there are a few good songs on their album, I have to say all in all it was a big disappointment. You'd think they would've saved some of their best songs for themselves instead of giving them all away to Girls Aloud. Great choice, "If You Need..." is my fave song of theirs!
