Maybe
CD
Cassingle

Look At Me
CD (CDEM 542)
Limited Edition CD with postcards (CDEMS 542)
Cassingle


so in other words, no.


I think it would've charted better.. at least Top 3. The video was getting some good buzz.. and DVD Singles were popular at the time, they should've released one with the video and quick making of. Or at least a CD 2 with more remixes. They also fucked up big time not releasing the album right after this single. The album would've sold more too. Don't know why the hell they waited 3 singles to drop before releasing Free Me. I remember getting very frustrated with Universal back then haha

Well, "Look At Me" might've had a "limited edition" CD but to the regular public, it was one CD... same tracklist...

"Maybe" and "Look At Me" (and "Out Of Your Mind") would've benefitted A LOT had they released a CD2

I remember, have not seen her since the party in the palace and when I saw the video, I was in shock, she as beautiful, thin, modern, perfect, was wondering if she had "lip filling" because the video your lips appear larger., later found that it's lipstick from MAC that has this sexy effect. :kiss: :kiss:

Surprised it only got to #16 on radio, it seems the perfect radio song. I could see it being fun and funky enough for the big 'young demo' radios but also fit in on radio 2 and the likes.

Gosh 12 years now!

'Maybe' still sounds so fresh and timeless. I didn't really appreciate back then, just how brave Emma was for releasing these (the 'FM' era) singles which really were like nothing else out at the time. She was at that point pretty much caught between two markets because she had transcended the younger side of the pop market but probably wasn't quite ready (to be taken seriously) by a more mature audience. So the positions and success she did achieve then was quite remarkable, again in hindsight.

No.16 on airplay was actually pretty fantastic for her! 'Maybe' is and was so different to the songs that were clogging up radio at that point. Plus the only two major stations who supported it were Radio 2 and Capital. Radio 1 gave one play to 'Free Me' they bypassed the rest of the campaign.

The only thing that still niggles me with 'Maybe' is that it didn't reach it's midweek placing of No.4. That would have felt so much more rewarding than the No.6!

Of course, as would pretty much every other song released by anyone back then! The Sugababes released 'Hole In The Head' that same week and that would get nowhere near No.1 now. It's a completely different time.

I agree, her look was perfection! (In all her videos she looked perfect)... I wish she'd go back to this sexy but classy style

I stand by my statement, to me Maybe felt like the last time that Emma appeared to be a viable pop star. Everything afterwards was just diminishing returns. Use Downtown as evidence to the contrary if you wish, but it was after a high profile stint on Strictly (a home for stars on the wane) and it was a high profile charity single. Acts releasing for CiN tend to place highly (and yes I,m aware of Headlines) xx

Where did you get it in HD? How about FM and other Emma videos, got them all?
