Girl Aloud Sarah Harding told The Daily Star March 25, 2009 that the first time she heard this 1990's style Electro Pop song, she loved it. The singer explained: "When we first heard the new single we thought it was so Nineties, a proper pop dance song. It's got that trancy, chilled Ibiza feel. I get lost in the music at the beginning and then it builds and builds and builds. You just want to go mental."
At 6 minutes 45 seconds, this was Girls Aloud's longest song to date.
Like most of the other Girls Aloud songs, this was written and produced by the Xenomania production team.
The futuristic video in which the five girls adopt a sexy sci-fi look was inspired by Stanley Kubrick's classic sci-fi movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. The girls explained to The Daily Star: "Five glass spheres fall at impossible speeds toward Earth. Protected in these futuristic force fields Girls Aloud descend through space and time."
This song peaked at #11 bringing to an end Girls Aloud's unbroken run of 20 straight Top 10 singles in the UK.
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
