It's never a good sign when a cover song takes up the A-side of a single. It's also not a good sign when said cover song is a lot more enjoyable than the band's own material. As is the case with the Mini Skirt Mob. This all-girl band cranks out a crisper version of the Ronettes classic "Be My Baby" while capturing a mid-tempo power pop ballad entitled "I Wanna Go to Bed With You." Nothing especially significant with the latter, even with the melodic vocals and multi-vocal backups. Think the Go-Go's or early Bangles, back when they were known as the Bangs.
