The days of her having a chart hit on the official charts are over. Steps could only scrape the top 40 with a fantastic number 1 worthy track like Scared of the Dark and look at All Saints.

It's all about how the album does for this era of artists now and while I don't think she'd sell a huge load of that either I think she could score another top 40 album like Melanie C for sure.

We should grateful for new music not worrying about the charts. Geri had her big solo era and those 4 consecutive number 1s will be her long standing achievement as a solo artist.


I 100% agree.

She has good intentions, even though it might seem like she's trying to revive an interest in her career by exploiting George Michael's legacy and the relationship they shared, but the song and the production is atrocious, and sadly, the fact that it's a charity single means that it should receive more support towards that cause that she's trying to bring awareness to, and at this rate, the amount she's going to be giving away based on her sales is less than 30 pounds, which is just embarrassing for an artist of her stature and level


She did much better than the 200 copies of half of me. And even though it's not her best song. It's better than half man on the mountain.

Now that she realized that she can't revive her career, maybe she will start doing it for the fans and not the charts or the critics. Maybe she will officially upload man on the mountain for the fans and start having fun once more.

The song really didn't deserve to chart, it is just rubbish. Geri can certainly do better and I just know no one in here would give it a 2nd listen if it wasn't by Geri.

Yea thats true but I'm happy she is releasing something, and being creative, this is better than posting baking vids on Instagram

Same could be said by more or less any given song by any of the girls (give or take a few exceptions).

I mean Not such an innocent girl? Here it comes again? Today? Lift Me Up? This Groove? If that were me? Take my breath away? We're not gonna sleep tonight? [insert 8 songs from Forever album here]?

I mean, come on! It's a Spice girls and solo forum! :laugh:

One could wonder how it is possible that even in here everyone can hear that the song is rubbish, but Geri and a full team of experienced backing singers and producere don't..

But ok I was having the same thoughts when Dear Life was released.

Anyway, even though the song is not so great, Geri is singin it nicely

Oh I agree there are plenty of duds in the solo spice discography. I mean I get the song is for charity but the profits will be minimal (itunes takes 40p for every sale made) and I just cant imagine anyone actively wanting to listen to this in a months time.

I guess as an album track dedicated to George it would have been a nice if maybe skipable track.

After 12 years this is such a whimper of a comeback, I mean is anyone really excited by any of it bar it is by Geri and she hasnt released in ages. The reason for the release has left this comeback with a 'awwwww that is nice' feel at absolute best.

Half of me was pants but it was very Geri, it was fun. Serious Geri is just painful as she hasnt the voice or performing skills to sell a serious song.

:) :grin: I quite like the song, not her best but it is not the worst solo spice song at all. That honour belongs to "If that were me" In my opinion

Also I agree re charts, all the singers and bands I like do nothing in the singles charts. It's all about album

I think this was a good song for her to dip her toe back in, after such a long time away. The song is not particularly to my taste but it's inoffensive and the idea behind it being for George is nice.

I hope the positive response she's had will give her the confidence to try releasing more.

Whaaat?!?! Thank god it's only your opinion. I can't compare "If that were me" with "Angels in chains", It's like compare "Thriller" with "Despacito".
ITWM isn't a very good song, but is way better than songs like Headlines, Lullaby, Calling (the worst ever...), All I need to know, every song from Passion, and this Angels in chains.

You must be joking. Calling is one of the best Spice related things ever.

EXCUSE ME??????!!!!!!!

Headlines is one of the best Spice Ballad. It is at par with 2B1, VF and Goodbye. If oly it was released in the 90s it would've been another number 1.

You only say Headlines is crap because it did not do well in the charts. Now let me tell you this. If 2B1, VF or Goodbye was released in 2007, it will be lucky to enter the Top 40.

The UK chart is set to have a rule change, starting from the chart of 7th July: http://www.buzzjack.com/forums/index.ph ... &p=5745676

It's all rather complicated stuff about data manipulation, but I think the main thing to take from it is that it'll benefit new releases. I reckon Geri would have stood a greater chance of charting under these conditions, so it's a shame the new rules are being introduced a little too late.

Wow those changes are just as bad. They should just scrap the streaming from the chart and create a separate weekly streaming chart. It's ridiculous that you can stream songs for free to make them chart

Been keeping my eye on the UK iTunes since The One Show performance and she jumped from #166 to #107

Hope she jumps back into the top 100.

COuld be nice to do a radio toru as Mel did for ANymore, so they will play the song and help people listen to it.
Solo Spice biggest problem is the lack of radio plays in my opinion
