I'd think VOM is drab and 3 good songs and a load of old tosh if she was, wasn't reuniting or the Queen of England.

Saying that Melanie C's decision not to join GEM is the best decision to avoid embarrassment is the BIGGEST DELUSION.

She'll never reach the YouTube views of GEM. Not even half of it.

How I wish GEM released Song For Her and Melanie C released Dear Life on the same date and see who will be embarrassed.


I think what you see as embarrassing may be different than what other people see as embarrassing.

I don't think I'd be embarrassed if someone had more YouTube views than I did, but I would be embarrassed to claim to be part of something big (reunion! celebration!) and then have it constantly go back and forth on whether or not that thing was actually happening.

Melanie C acknowledges on several occasions that she doesn't expect to have the same level of success as the Spice Girls (ex: Youtube views) BUT she does enjoy making music and performing - so she continues to do it.

With the way this "reunion" is going now, she clearly made the right choice. She's out there doing what she enjoys, giving her fans music they appreciate/enjoy, while everyone else is still unclear about what's happening with GEM (likely, nothing).
~I Love Melanie C :)~

I don't get why people are claiming that GEM has "nothing to write about" based on a leaked demo that was probably made for a gimmicky tv show in mind. For all we know if they do record more music as a trio it could end up being the worst track of the bunch!

You guys need to stop embarrassing yourselves, your bickering and arguing is so cringeworthy. I'm embarrassed for you.

Anymore (which grew on me), Numb (which for Mel is a breath of fresh air) and Escalator (which production wise is the most experimental she has been in a long time).

The rest just fall into the usual Mel C MOR stuff, that has a bit different production.

Lol, what a weird thing to say!

Even if Mel C was a part of this reunion I would still have the same taste in music. It wouldn´t make me automatically like VOM. So no, I would NOT treasure or be all over it.
I´m not a robot. Are you?

And like Sammy, I also only like 3 songs on that album. :D

Anymore grew on me also. Can't stand Numb ( I've even deleted it lol). I like Escalator as well as Dear Life and a couple of others. I've also deleted SFTF and unravelling. I think they are just awful. Basically I'm good with 8 tracks but the rest.... meh

Both points are valid I'd say. Not a case of being a robot but totally get both points of view

Unravelling is unlistenable to me, horrible production, complete lack of melody and crappy lyrics, it has no redeeming features. SFTF is such repetitive nothingness. Dear Life is ok, need to listen to the remixes cus it is just one of those just middling Mel C songs that needs something extra.

are you actually suggesting that Song for Her and Version of Me are good based on their lyrics? I am sorry but lyrically they are quite cringe.

Version of Me has some good moments, production wise, but lyrically it is quite poor. You can tell that Melanice is doing her best and that she is stretching herself but to be honest, the whole thing feels a little bit middle of the road. Like, the best moments lyrically on the album are with Anymore, Loving You Better and Room for Love and even those have moments that are so lyrically basic it is quite sad.

Song for Her is just embarrasing. I am not even going to bother going into that one.

I only care for three songs from the album too and I haven't even heard them since this past November when my favourite bands released new music. But you and sam get what I mean.

If there was no reunion, or if Melanie was part of the reunion, people whom I don't want to name, wouldn't whine and insult her here.

Couldn't agree more. For an album she promoted as her stronger lyrically and inspired by Sia, it's her weakest.
But song for her is, like I said before, is the worst spice girls related song ever. And for the people who still dream that the spice girls can release new music, let me remind you headlines and voodoo...

Some people could benifit from showing a little bit of humility. Being honest about your opinions is great, but when your motivation is to belittle and negate the opinion of the person you're replying to (or the person you're talking about), that's not discussing an issue. It's being a bully. A member of this forum posted a wonderful quote on Facebook today: "Being kind is the highest form of intellect". Please take it to heart before this forum implodes.

It's slightly worrying that they'll be doing stuff in Mel B's home studio, but at least they're doing something. It's also comforting to hear that "Song for her" is considered a rough demo.

This is not the Melanie C forum. Please discuss her endeavours in the appropriate place. Some of us don't care.

Lol "as soon as Emma and Geri get their schedules together".... Geri's about to pop, I'm sure she's not going to have much free time to fly all the way over to LA to record some Spice songs. I feel like MB says things just to get people off her back.

I was thinking that exact thought. Geri is likely going to be a very busy woman the next few months.
