Or maaaybeeeee (no pun intended) I turn to you is actually also a brilliant slice of 2000's pop with a great video of it's own, which appeals to just as many people if not more than Maybe?

I prefer ITTY over Maybe and that's got nothing to do with Melanie C being a "proper artist" I just think it's alot catchier, Mel's voice sounds fantastic on it, and it makes me want to get up and dance and sing along at the top of my voice everytime I hear it... It's easily in my top 5 solo releases (alongside WTYSL, Mi Chico Latino, NBTSA and WYG).

I also love how something can sounds 60's and be brilliant for it, yet something sounds 2000's and it's decent but dated... unsure.gif wacko.gif


Because the intention was to make something sound 60s, taking the best elements from that period and adding a modern twist.

ITTY was made to sound current and on trend in 2000, which now sounds dated.

What I mean about it sounding dated is that Maybe still sounds like it could be released today and still sound fresh. Whilst I doubt I Turn To You as it stands could. In fact, we just saw that with High Hells, which sounds like an updated version of that sound anyway (and personally sonically, I find it better if not lyrically, ah).

Put it this way: both Emma and Mel C's discogaphies are FILLED TO THE BRIM with sounds that are very much stuck in the past, that havent evolved much at all. Some of their outputs already sounded dated by the time they were released (Carolyna, I Want Candy, Understand, Downtown, Baby Please Don't Stop, etc). Some of their outputs sound fresh (Maybe, Anymore, Too Many Teardrops and High Heels, for instance).

Hope that has helped clear up the idea of what 'dated' might mean. It's very different from 'I like it' or 'I dont like it'...

Yes but when you say itís overrated because it sounds dated that very much puts it in a position of I dislike it because it sounds dated...

I think a good song always sounds good despite whether it sounds fresh or of the time. Donít you want me by human league sounds so 80ís itís painful but itís still a fantastic song. A heck of a lot of Madonnaís 80s and 90s stuff sounds of the time but they are still brilliant. Same for Kylie etc etc.

"Dated" has such a negative connotation for some reason, I see it thrown around as a criticism quite often - but I think it's part of an old song's charm if it sounds firmly like the era it was created in, that can be very nostalgic. I don't mind whether or not something from certain years holds up in comparison to music production and trends from 2019, because that's not what I'm searching for when playing old music. It's very subjective whether a song is dated or timeless or somewhere in between anyway!

I'm glad that Maybe and I Turn To You are not in the top 5...they're maybe my least favorite two singles of what I call the Golden Solo Era(1999-2004)Ö
Instead, Goodbye deserved a better result...
