With Mel C having so many songs in here it was expected some of her work would be eliminated early.
Better Alone should be higher from what we have seen to date.

Never keen on 'We're Not Gonna Sleep Tonight', preferred the album version, as the single mix was a little bland and trying too hard to be sexy. The release date definitely killed any chance for this song, but I doubt it would have done any better if released on a different a month before. It was a pretty weak single choice & 'High On Love' or 'A Girl Like Me' would have been better selections.

5.432 - 65. Understand MELANIE C
5.455 - 64. This Time MELANIE C
5.486 - 63. Goin' Down MELANIE C
5.568 - 62. You're All I Need to Get By EMMA BUNTON
5.685 - 61. A Mind of Its Own VICTORIA BECKHAM


A few more Melanie C singles depart in the early stages of the results. This Time & Understand are both taken from her fourth album, This Time (released in 2007). The title track came out in October of that year, just a few weeks in advance of the Spice Girls' Return of the Spice Girls tour. Unfortunately the hype of the girls being back together did little for the fortunes of this song, which entered and peaked at a lowly #94 in the UK - the first Spice related single to miss the Top 75. Understand was exclusively released in Canada in 2008, but didn't pick up much traction there.

The most notable loss for Melanie C here is her debut solo release Goin' Down! The rock/grunge flavoured track is a world away from the Spice Girls' music, and was certainly a bold statement to launch her solo career. It reached #4 in the UK, but stayed in the Top 40 for just three weeks. 20 years on from its release and it proves as divisive as ever - it received 3 '-1' scores, but also 2 '10's!

Emma's cover of the soulful You're All I Need to Get By came out in May of this year. It's taken from her most recent album My Happy Place. Emma's partner Jade Jones joins her on this 60s track which is originally by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell.

The first Victoria single to bow out is A Mind of Its Own, which was the second and last release from her self-titled debut album. It reached #6 in the UK in February 2002, that being the same peak as her previous release Not Such an Innocent Girl. The media were always extra harsh on Victoria, and both singles were deemed to have been failures for her. Ultimately Victoria parted ways with Virgin Records in the summer of 2002. #annemarie

You're All I Need to Get By gets a bad rep here because it was a flop. It's a nice tune, much better than a lot of singles that are still in the run!

Goin' Fown is as good as any 90s indie bop and should be TOP Q0 YOU TROGLODYTES.

Nope Going Down is actually interesting, This Time (as much as I love Melanie) is boring drivel. I'm more bothered about Understand though, that is such a gorgeous track, the opening chords wub.gif wub.gif wub.gif

Going Down is one of the best, most interesting Spice songs. If Oasis relwased it, it would be a classic.

THIS!!If Oasis released Going Down, it would be at least a million sellee, with the indie fan boys going on about how genius it is. As it is, a Spice Girl released ir, and so the indie boys didn't even give it the time of day

Sorry kids but Goin' Down is a lame attempt a being 'rock'. It felt forced and desperate not just because of the music (and some of the lyrics) but the whole video and promo attached to it.

Many artists have successfully transition between pop and rock in really interesting and intelligent ways. Goin' Down was neither, unfortunately. It was a pop star trying to distancing herself from her pop roots rather than it being an artist who wanted to explore how her sound worked well with rock.

Having said that, there are some nice attempts at that in Northern Star, mainly with Suddenly Monday, Gaga and Northern Star itself which has some soft-rock nuances to it. But Goin Down felt wrong and it is still bad today...
