Music is, by and large, its own reward. But music which is also put to work for a worthy cause is twice as good. And that is what is happening here. Methodical Madness has taken the Girls Aloud classic and reimagined, reworked, and remixed it. It has moved it from the chart-friendly pop category into the bonefide, clubland banger.

It is vibrant to the point of being euphoric, accessible beyond mere infectiousness, and as smart, sassy, and up-to-date as you can get. Incendiary Ibiza salvos meet more refined and fashional nightclub vibes, a heady blend indeed.

And the reason that they have gone this route is to raise awareness and money for the Sarah Harding Breast Cancer Appeal, the “Primrose Hill” label referring to the place that Sarah called home.

Not only great music but the most worthy of causes too. What more could you ask for?
