Bardot : Poison
In Australia this was the fastest-selling single ever...
with a song of the dubious
purity and outrageous simplicity that would have been at home
on the Spice Girls' 'Forever'.
In Australia this was the fastest-selling single ever, but if and
when 'Poison' fails to set the charts alight in the UK, it will
be claimed that this is how Hear'Say would have been received had they been unveiled without the context of a TV
show. Not true. While Hear'Say and 'Pure And Simple' are
ace, Bardot and 'Poison' are... otherwise. A shame, but nobody gets any prizes for getting there first. Just ask Girl Thing.
