Album: Everybody Wants To Be On TV (2010)
Play Video


  • This punky, ska-tinged song takes a look at starting an unplanned family. It is a track on English pop band Scouting For Girls' second album, Everybody Wants To Be On TV. Frontman Roy Stride told CMU about the record: "Musically, we went into the writing process with the aim of creating an album of ten singles. We wanted to write a classic. In the download world you have to deliver an album where every track is genuinely great, otherwise people will just download the single releases. We started with 50 tracks and ruthlessly culled this back to ten great tunes, which flowed together on an album, but also stood up individually. It took a lot of work to keep up such a high standard. In fact, it drove us mad and I don't think I've worked harder in my life."
