Now this works!

Right! The verses are stronger, I love the "hoo hoo"s, and the production is so much more interesting. I have no idea why they went for the other version over this :yeah:

Have anyone heard the solo demos Heidi recorded prior to joining Sugababes? These were recorded in 1999 I believe

 

I remember listening to these a few months ago! They're all super cheesy but Change Your Wicked Ways is a lowkey bop :cackle: It's weird that her voice sounds stronger here than it did during her time with the girls.

Is she the one who wanted the other version ?

I personally like both but I understand that the people who live in the UK with that add going around didn't help liking the original.

The U.K. didn’t particularly like it, in fact if memory serves it was the first lead single from a brand new Sugababes studio album that never peaked at No. 1 (since “Overload”).

For weeks before it’s official release, it was rammed down the viewing publics throat during most television commercial breaks in support of a “Boots” the chemist campaign (a drug store that everyone in the U.K. knows).

”Girls” was boring to seemingly everyone from the word go. Yet, when a LQ mp3 link to the Klas Ahlund Rework came as part of a multimedia component of the “Catfights & Spotlights” album, literally everyone (including myself) seemed to prefer it. It’s a shame it’s never appeared anywhere in HQ.

I can't understand that they didn't put it at least on the single. On Deezer (the french spotify) Girls appear twice on the tracklist of the album but it's the same version. Mess ! So it never leaked in HQ ?

Maybe there are other tracks from the album with alternative versions. Would love to hear that.

It never, the Klas Ahlund Re-work was never released (and never leaked) in HQ unless someone has vaulted it.

Unfortunately so much (not all) of that ‘enhanced CD’ era, where record labels would offer bonus content and hidden links to downloads via the CD (when placed in a pc), occurred during an era when people’s expectations of what constituted HQ - were so much lower & that track was in many ways indicative of that era.

It was also a strange one in the sense that from the moment literally anyone downloaded the Klas Ahlund Re-work via the “Catfights & Spotlights” CD, it was seemingly universally praised as the superior version of the song (something that almost never happens).

As a side issue, I am annoyed with a certain individual (you know who you are) of the Bebo generation, who has been in a position to attain coveted unreleased music at least twice, who was offered various things (not appreciating those twin moments of luck) and stupidly turned them down, because the individual in question simply did not understand lossless (non MP3 music formats, or even how to play them) and to this day remains so backwards as to still not understand what ‘uncompressed’ formats are and STILL believes anything that’s not MP3/ M4A is not even a valid file type!

Thank you for those informations. I didn't know most of them and was wondering who they worked with on some of the tracks. 

For exemple I didn't know about Dev Hynes producing Take the wheel and Drive and Xenomania producing Waiting for you through it makes sense. Funny how the latter could be considered a 5.0 song  :cackle: I'm surprised no one has joked about that yet.

This genius page has a list of all the MKS track, for some of them the credit are included with the lyrics, including the girls' writing credits which I think are important. I'm not sure how reliable they are tough. 

I noticed that Lay Down (the original) is missing from your list. It is produced by Dev Hynes as well and so is the swimming pool mashup (even tough the instrumental is not his).

Well anyways we really need a Sugababes Wikia. I Mean the informations are all over the place.

That's too bad. Audio quality is essential. Some people can't make a difference because with bad audio sound system anything would sound the same quality. I hope we'll get the chance to finally get them.
