"Push the Button" is a song by the English girl group the Sugababes,
released as the lead single from their fourth studio album Taller in
More Ways (2005). Composed by Dallas Austin and the Sugababes as an
electropop and R&B; song with various computer effects, it was inspired
by an infatuation that one of them (Keisha Buchanan) developed for
another artist. Critics praised the song's conception and production,
and some of them named it one of the best pop singles of the 2000s. The
song became one of the group's most commercially successful releases,
peaking at number one in Austria, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United
Kingdom, and reaching the top five across Europe and in Australia. It
was nominated for Best British Single at the 2006 BRIT Awards. Matthew
Rolston directed the song's music video, which was filmed in Shepherds
Bush, London; it features the Sugababes flirting with three men in an
elevator. The group performed the single at Oxegen 2008, V Festival
2008, and other festivals and events. "Push the Button" appears on the
soundtrack to It's a Boy Girl Thing (2006).

Wikiquote quote of the day:
Our course of advance ... is neither a straight line nor a curve.
It is a series of dots and dashes. Progress comes per saltum, by
successive compromises between extremes, compromises often … between
"positivism and idealism". The notion that a jurist can dispense with
any consideration as to what the law ought to be arises from the fiction
that the law is a complete and closed system, and that judges and
jurists are mere automata to record its will or phonographs to pronounce
