Spice - Nothing this was literally the perfect release schedule from possibly any pop act ever!!!

Spiceworld - It's a real shame Never Give Up On The Good Times wasn't released alongside Viva Forever as a double a-side. They could easily have released just a tour video of the performance mashed up with behind the scenes fun, and it might have helped Viva Forever to sell a few more copies... (Would have looked great on their GH collection)

Forever - Obviously it wasn't on the album but I think Give you what you want / If it's loving on your mind would have been a fantastic follow up to Holler. Otherwise a remixed If you wanna have some fun would have helped shift some more albums.

Northern Star - I always thought Suddenly Monday would have worked well alongside If that were me as a double a-side.

Beautiful Intentions - At the time I thought Last Night On Earth was screaming for a release but I actually think the whole album sounds quite dated now... I still really enjoy it but I think Next Best Superstar and First Day of my Life were the only viable hit singles really.

This Time - Already Gone. Why it wasn't included on the album I do not know I think alongside Carolyna it was the strongest single contender.

The Sea - Stupid Game and Burn were both great tracks worthy of being singles.

Schizophonic - Perfect single releases

Scream if you wanna go faster - I think strength of a woman would have been a better follow up to It's Raining Men and Circles around the moon was screaming for a release too.

Passion - Love never loved me was screaming to be released.

A Girl Like Me - A girl like me the title track was quite funky.

Free Me - Breathing should have been released over Crickets!

Life In Mono - I wish she had released an original track for CIN Take me to another town or Mischievous would have worked well.

Hot - Hotter would have been a much better choice than Lullaby and likely charted alot higher.

LA State of mind - If I had my life again / Say, say, say would have made a gorgeous double a-side

Victoria Beckham - It's a shame My love is for real and the Telstar album didn't come to fruition would have been interesting to see the reaction.

Spiceworld Era - Do it/Denying (apart from Never Give Up On The Good Times)

I really liked 'Last Night On Earth' at the time too.

'Next Best Superstar' never resonated with me. Melanie was obviously feeling betrayed and let down by Virgin. But as a person with real-life problems, it seemed a bit whiney and ungrateful. I didn't buy that single :-O

I'd have preferred any of 'Last Night On Earth', 'Don't Need This' or 'Here And Now'. But I'm not saying they'd have sold anymore copies.

Honestly whoever picked Lullaby as the make or break single for Mel B should have been fired on the spot! Hotter was the obvious choice but anything was better than lullaby.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if it was Mel B herself who pushed for it...

If U Can't Dance or even Last Time Lover should have been singles from their debut.

With Spice being such a huge success it's amazing they or Virgin didn't push a 5th single out. It's not like they'd have needed to do much promo in mid 97 when everything they touched turned to gold.

I had thought that but surely she isn't that stupid? I mean as an album track for your kid ok but single to save your solo career.

A singles run of -

I want you back
Word up
Tell me
Feels so good
Hotter

Would have been an incredible start to a solo career.

Whoever mentioned 'Already Gone' for This Time is spot on. How did that song not make the album over the absolute dirge on it.

I'm often of the mind a lot of b-sides are overrated as they arw rarer and a fan only thing so get put on a pedastal but Already Gone is the catchiest song Mel C had done since NS days.
