Alesha Dixon: ‘I can never articulate to people the importance of this song’

Written by on October 9, 2023

Singer Alesha Dixon hosted the second of her four KISSTORY All-Stars episodes this Sunday and shared with listeners how she really feels about Mis-teeq’s debut track, Why?, first released in 2001.

Introducing the song on this weekend’s show Alesha Dixon says: ‘We’re taking it way, way back. This was the first song we released, this was our debut, this is where it all began for us. This was actually a life-changing moment and actually one thing I will say about ‘Why’ – I don’t really listen to a lot of Mis-teeq when I’m at home, it’s very rare for me to put it on but once in a blue moon I’ll take a trip down memory lane. And I say this to my friends and family all the time – whenever I play Why it actually makes me feel really emotional, there’s something in the song that because of the memories that it brings back I always well up whenever I hear it. I can never articulate to people the importance of this song… ‘

A muffled sound is then heard which sounds as if the Britain’s Got Talent judge is getting emotional before that distinctive laugh rings out and Alesha reveals: ‘I wasn’t choking up there I just nearly choked on a Strepsil! That is hilarious I was literally trying to tell you something deep there guys…’

Each Sunday evening from 4pm for the rest of the year, celebrity KISSTORY superfans will spin their favourite KISSTORY anthems while giving you an insight into their lives and careers as they reminisce on where they were when these songs first hit the airwaves or dancefloors, and what the tunes mean to them.

So, get ready to hear all those personal tales including how it goes when they meet their musical heroes and – most importantly – what were the parties like back then?
