Question about Song For Her... (Melanie C)

Postby Mikerecords » 13 Apr 2017, 18:51

Hi guys,

As we all know, Song For Her was recorded without Melanie C. But since she dropped out the last minute, do you think the song was already written with Melanie C in mind as part of the song? Do you think she heard the demo before she dropped out? Maybe she already had a verse for herself...

I know she said in a interview she heard a clip of it, but she could have meant the clip of the 'recorded' song. She did sing along with the "oh oh oh" part of Emma.

Interesting theory however I assumed they wrote and recorded it during those two days the three spent with Eliot?

You know how these girls are. They didn't have a plan so it probably was written and recorded in the two days they spent with Eliot.

Kevsie said GEM wanted Mel C to add her vocal to the song but she didnt wanted to add her voice, she never wanted a new SG song or a tv show to replace Posh

According to her, she decided not to reunite in early 2016. GEM recorded the song in May. Hardly "last minute".

I absolutely adore Song for Her!! Not many people will agree with me but it's one of the best spice songs they've done in my opinion ;)

Well, early 2016... that could be somewhere in the first quart of the year. It depends on the idea of what early is for you :laugh:
It is like when you're speaking to someone and say something like "the other day I did this and that" and that the other day means last year Christmas.

I think the song would've been even better with Melanie's vocals but I still love the song personally. I would've been up for more material from GEM.

I was under impression the song was recorded for that proposed TV show to find stand-ins for Victoria AND Mel C's spots?

Also. Mel C at the time said she hadn't heard the full song. She'd just caught a clip.

I'm pretty certain Song For Her only came about while they were toying with the idea of doing something as a three-piece.

Maybe Melanie C only heard a clip of the finished song. And the whole demo a few months before..

we all dying for a story here, aren't we?
Guys, im 99% sure that the story was this: first a snippet of the song was leaked...about 20 seconds...then after many days the whole song leaked...

so....the snippet leaks, someone is informing Mel, she hears it
then the whole song leaks someone is informing Mel, but for sentimental reasons she doesn't want to listen it...or she listens it and she says lies that "yeah i heard a little clip"....like im sooo not into the SG anymore! lol

Regardless of how it went down, the song structure clearly had a place for her - that final verse was pure Mel C. 'The girl is the woman you are...' is definitely Mel C's part!

It's trash. One of the worst thing's they've ever recorded. I can't imagine Mel C ever wanting to be part of this song.

A Song For Her and Voodoo are great examples of why a new Spice album perhaps isn't the best of ideas...

I have to agree with you... Why couldn't they re-caputure their magic? They worked with the same producers, right? During Headlines, Voodoo and Song For Her. Maybe the producers lost their vibe or is it money?

i hate this negative shit!
First of all Voodoo is and old song redone, do your research!
Song For Her was adored by many, many, MANY fans...i guess not everyone can be pleased but please, calling it "trash" is just stupid, childish and naive.

Since when was Voodoo confirmed to be an old rehashed track?

Wow someone needs to chill.

It's called Opinion. Everybody has one. Naive? Maybe you need to do some research on what that actually means.

Calling something "trash" is neither stupid or childish. It's an opinion. And that's mine. It's horribly dated with cringey lyrics. I wanted to like it but I was so disappointed after all the hype. They are capable of so much more. It's adored by many because they're desperate for something new regardless of the quality.

And whether Voodoo is old or new ( I don't really care, FYI), it was RE-DONE and released years later. And still wasn't that good.

I loved Song of Her, but I think they wrote it and recorded it during those 2 days. Melanie probably heard the clip when it leaked out of curiosity, because it seemed that none of the 3 girls were speaking with her at that time.

Mel C can't have heard that first 15sec leaked clip only, because when she was on that TV show she sang the "oh oh oh oh" part. But it wasn't in the leaked snippet.
She definitely heard (whole of, or part of) the song when it had fully leaked.

I think Mel C has an opinion of "don't know, don't wanna know" when it comes to the girls trying new music. She loves the legacy of the Spice Girls, but no further.

I have to say I agree about them being unable to recapture their magic in the songs. Headlines is a lovely track but it is an album track at best. Was perfect for an additional track to the GH but no way on earth comeback single material :confused:

I don't get how they can have written / released so many great songs, as a group and on their own, then come up with Voodoo and Song for her as potential (or actual) new material :confused:

Honestly, I think Song For Her is miles better than Headlines and/or Voodoo.
