Smile - excellent
LDN - really catchy
Can't Knock 'Em out - so true it's funny)

As natural as Heather Mills' left leg.

I can't stand her forced glottal stops - (see also Corrinne Bailey Rae with her 'Three li''le birds, sa' on my window' - ick!!) and I'm not overly fond of her songwriting either (most of her songs are based on samples anyway, 'Littlest Things' being nicked from the soundtrack to 'Emannuelle' - not that I watch films like that, of course!)

But......

I saw her on This Week last night, and she was actually intelligent and articulate, and came across very well on screen - she knows more than she's letting on, that one! Just stop her from singing, that's all......

I think she is quite clever and I think it comes across in her song writing but even more so in interviews

I love her dress sense - dare to be different everyone! Smile
