So I know I’ve been banging on rather a lot about Nicola Roberts recently but that’s only because she’s completely amazing and deserving of many more pages of hyperbole and accolades than I can possibly aspire to on this humble blog. SHE DEFINES AMAZING.
After unleashing genre-defying-massive-in-every-way first single “Beat Of My Drum,” Nicola did not rest upon her laurels as some of her lazier pop contemporaries might, Nicola only went and attached the b-side to end all b-sides: “Disco Blisters & A Comedown.”
I really am at odds as to how someone could listen to the above track and not conclude that Nicola Roberts is a popstar of the highest order. “Why do the lights in the kebab shop make this guy look less hot” will almost certainly go down in the annals of pop history as one of the single greatest lyrics ever uttered. Who would have the audacity and aural bravado to release such a ridiculously brilliant b-side?
NICOLA FUCKING ROBERTS!
Say it with me: NICOLA. FUCKING. ROBERTS.
