Both songs are great, but I do love HOM to bits.

I remember enjoying HOM upon release but with time I'm not too fond of it even if the sentiment and intention is nice

I now, prefer AIC...

Both song are weak for Geri's standards but I prefer Half Of Me. It's a guilty pleasure that I want to hear even if it's embarrassing, while I don't really feel the need/desire to play AIC at all.

I wish HOF had bigger and better production (it would match the similar arrangement as Love Never Loved Me). The video was very embarrassing but still it was more my cup of tea than AIC.

Both are bad, but HOM is a bit better.

I love them both. Half of Me is tongue-in-cheek Geri, Angels In Chains so honest and heartfelt.

Angels in Chains for me, because of the nature of the song.

Half Of Me is one of the worst solo Spice songs ever. Infact, it's a really rubbish song generally speaking, imo. Whereas AIC has surpassed my expectations tenfold, to the point where I am constantly singing/humming it. It is one of the most catchy Spice songs (solo and group) that has been released.

I'm gonna go with AIC, because the lyrics are fine and I like to listen to it when it comes on shuffle. HOF has some really cringe-worthy lyrics and the music video is embarrassing, it's like a mum dancing with some teddy bears, and it all felt to me as if she was trying to censor herself to be suitable for children.

Half of Me absolutely.

Angels in Chains... nice way to tribute to someone, but nothing biggy here. It isn't better than Half of Me or the previous songs that were released. I've listened to it and it just doesn't work for me. But hey each his own

Angels in chains is maybe a better song but I prefer Half of me, is more gerish and funny, didn't deserve such a bad perfomance in australia

Angels in Chains is definitely the better song in all ways (lyrically, vocally, production)

I don't dislike Half of Me though and would've been intrigued to see how it would've performed on a global itunes market in 2013.

I agree to everything but the lyric part. Angels is catchy and had it been released back in 2002 it would have been a huge hit for Geri but lyrically, she just recycled George's, shamefully added the quote from blade runner (yes I know, I've said it already three times) and the verse about George particularly is the death of the song for me.

But even thought I've listen to it like ten times, it is freakishly catchy and I always find myself singing "we're all angels in chains!"

Hom however is funny, original and fresh. It was a mature, bag it up that could ease the transformation from hot pants girl to a woman pop artist without losing her charm.

No! :death:


I wasnt asking for your approval. It's my opinion. If you disagree with something on a forum it's usually a good idea to explain your point of view rather than just an obnoxious one word reply which screams narcissism from a poster who believes they talk for everyone.

Angels in Chains without a doubt. It's just better from a lyrical, production and vocal perspective.

Voted for Half of me because while it is crap at least it is fun and upbeat.

Both are lyrically cringe and Geri's vocals arent even worth debating.

unfortunately both are not as good as any other Geri single
they're ok but they're not amazing
I wouldn't pay attention to them if it wasn't her

why doesn't she release Love & Light?
that's an amazing song!
