Tell Me Why - Geri's take on the song?

Postby Hannes84 » 09 Jul 2017, 22:14

I've been wondering this for a few days now, but it might be a case of "beating a dead horse"-topic. Still, I can't help but to ask if Geri ever reacted to that song in any way at all? The lyrics are pretty direct and attacky, I wonder if she felt hurt by them? I know Mel C wasn't taking part of writing the song (she was busy writing Northern Star), but still...

I have no idea. I'm sure she heard it back in the day but I don't recall her comenting about the song.

Well, we are not sure if the song is about Geri. It could be about their ex-boyfriend, a friend or someone else close to them. Just like the song "Watcha Talkin' Bout" by Victoria. Some say it is about Geri too but we can never be sure unless they say it openly. Until then, these songs will remain a mystery

VB did confirm it... can't recall her exact words but a reporter said something about: Is this about Geri?

And VB said something like: you're the first (or the only) who picked that up

I thought it was about Mel C, actually.

I don't think it is about Mel C. Mainly because Mel C wouldn't have wanted to release, let alone record vocals for, a song that talked about her like that. Especially her own part.

Victoria's Watcha Talkin' Bout is a clear one. ("It started when the fame and fans kept coming in/And then you changed on us/Then you told us you were cool and we were wrong"). At one point she's even talking in plural: "Cos I know we're not the ones to blame/But we had it goin on till you started doin' us wrong". I never really questioned that it was about her.
