Wonderland: 'Not A Love Song'
Published Mar 9 2011, 10:26 GMT | By Robert Copsey
B*Witched, Bellfire, Six (you know, from Irish Popstars
)... the chart success of girlbands from the Emerald Isle is patchy at best. The thing they all have in common? One Louis Walsh, who, ever determined to showcase some homegrown talent, has paired up with Westlife's Kian Egan to form five-piece girl group Wonderland
. But does their debut have what the XF
judge would consider, "the likeability factor"?
If nothing else, it's certainly got balls. "If you're gonna write a love song/ I don't wanna hear one," they croon over a part Taylor Swift, part Corrs country-folk-pop melody as they urge their men to forgo icky romantic gestures and instead play things decidedly cooler. In fact, given their alternative suggestion - "If you really wanna use your mouth why don't you kiss me instead?" - we'd hazard a guess that their balls are twice as mighty as Louis's and Westlife's. Now there's a mental image we didn't need.> Click here to watch the 'Not A Love Song' video
