That tune in the first video is piss-poor. Desperate sounding bland europop.

Kim Wilde must make me a shrubbery - or I shall say "Ni" to her.

i LOVE Perfect girl song, its such a fantastic tune, her voice sounds great and song has a great energy kind of 80's vibe transfer to 2007
and yes she looks realy sexy as always.
