Nobody said it needs to fit the song we're just saying that in our opinion, it should. Also we're talking about Geri Halliwell. Every single cover of hers has been taken from the videoshoot so all of them were related to the song. It wasn't a general comment (at least on my part) but an opinion inside Geri's discography context.

Most fans criticized the Headlines video because it was boring, non-spicy, didn't fit the song and was just an excuse to appear in their underwear. Well, this is exactly the same. Boring, non-Geri, doesn't fit the song and it's just an excuse to appear in her underwear.

Well, we have to remember that Geri's back catalogue dates from 8 to 14 years ago. It was fairly unlikely that her artwork would continue the "single cover is from the video shoot" theme, after all that time + the fact she's on a different label. Not forgetting that there isn't actually a video for this song. So the likelihood for the cover to be a seemingly random photo was very strong.

I actually think the photo suits the mood of the song (pleasant sounding / dreamy), even if it's not a literal reflection on the lyrics. I'm not sure what sort of photo would have necessarily been more appropriate for this single. :think: Although it has a couple of cheeky lyrics in it, overall it's not a hugely feisty or Spicy song.

Also, I'm just overwhelmed/happy that artwork for a new Geri single even exists! Who would have thought it?! It's been a very long time coming. Maybe I'm just easy to please, but I'm more than satisfied. :hunny:

This is very much true for me. I like analyzing this sort of stuff because I work with images/videos/etc in my professional life, but it's just nitpicking really. I do think she looks really good and as a fan I'm happy with whatever we get. The most important thing at this point is the music and I'm really pleased with what I've heard so far of her new stuff, especially the single :D

Oh God this is so exciting!
I wonder if this is only avaliable on iTunes AUSTRALIA.
Has anyone checked on their local stores?

I also wished the single would be out this Friday already. Why are they waiting so long? Are they hoping radio will pick up the song next week so it will have some hype and luggage behind it as it is released?
Sounds reasonable

Lovely cover. Why the hell would it have any reference with the song?
Do you all remember the Passion's back cover? Yet we were happy with that.

Maybe they're gonna release it to radio and she'll promote it on radio shows and television. Would be awesome to have a few extra TV performances :inlove:

That is what I am thinking
I mean, songs are released and sent to radios in AUS on friday. Her performance happens on a thrusday so maybe the following Friday will be the radio's first play
With it she will have 3 weeks of 'radio play' alone with hopefully some key promo which will ALL lead to the Oct 25th date where she could PERFORM the song on AGT and boom :love: :love: :love:

TOP10, imagine?!!!?


Anyone can confirm me if this is ONLY avaliable in the AUSTRALIAN ITUNES STORE?

I hope they at least release it worldwide like MelB
I understand her not releasing in the UK cause she might want to focus on it alone later on BUT the rest of world wont have actual promo anyway so why not just get it out like MelB and secure Sony and Geri a few pennies?

It costs over $10 only to have a song uploaded to iTunes

^ Unfortunately I have a feeling it'll be an Australia only affair. Mel B is different because she released it on her own, she can do whatever she wants. Geri just signed a contract and as far as we know from the last few reports she's only releasing the new music in the Australian market so far.

So please get accustomed to that idea and don't throw a hissy fit like you did in the Beresford gig thread when you find out it probably won't be available anywhere else. ;)

Can't say I care for it too much, I think it's the brush. It doesn't seem realistic at all. It just looks like it was photoshopped on. She looks great though!

Can you buy from an iTunes store outside of the country you live in? I'm in the UK, but will be really pissed if I can't buy the single - I need the studio version of this song!
