Hole In The Head

Album: Three (2003)
Charted: 1 96
  • The Sugababes are Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena, and Siobhan Donaghy. They met at a garage party at the age of 12. They were all 16 when they recorded their first UK Top 10 hit in 2000, "Overload." Since then they have had a number of international hits including several UK chart toppers. Siobhan Donaghy left the band mid-tour in 2001 due to depression and fighting within the group and she was replaced by Heidi Range.
  • Keisha Buchanan says of this in the Night & Day magazine from November 20, 2005: "I've never said this before, but Hole In The Head was about being in a relationship with J-Rock from the band Big Brovaz, and then finding out he was cheating on me. That song was written when I was an angry 18-year-old." >>

    They're hardly implying that cancer is a joke, just that this guy is...
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandIt's a slang term for tumor/camcers.
  • Angela from London, United StatesCancer?!? What are you talking about? Surely 'a hole in the head' is a reference to being shot?
