Possibly my favourite solo Spice song overall. HOW was it not a single??? sad.gif It goes OFF.

I love it so much. One of those songs I have to play numerous times after it's just finished etc..

Is this the biggest missed opportunity of a Spice solo single?

First NGUOTGT & now this </3

Wonderful song that had great potential as a single for Mel.

This is one of my favourites and one of my most played tracks ever.

I want this back on the setlist without the guitar. We know why it wasn’t a single , radio 2 preferred weak!

Well R2 need to not have an opinion again if that's true. Ugh.

To be fair I adore weak and think it’s a brilliant single choice, (one of my favourite Melanie C singles) but Burn would have been a stronger choice! One by one is my favourite on that album though I bloody love that song!

Burn is definitely the one that got away. So sad that it didn't get the single treatment that it so much deserved. cry.gif

It's definitely up there for solo Spice single missed opportunities.

Personally, I'd probably put Geri's Love Never Loved Me and Victoria's I Wish ahead of it in terms of missed opportunities...because they both just screamed 'DUH. This is the best thing on the album. RELEASE IT'

At least The Sea had the benefit of Think About It getting out there.

Though. For me, The Sea's an interesting case as I thought both Burn AND Stupid Game were very strong single contenders. Would they have been hits? Eh. Probably not. I doubt anything she did had a chance by that point. But. It'd just feel like justice to have them released.

Basically THIS! (Apart from I Wish bit which was ok but nothing special lol... the entire VB album tbh). The point you make about Burn and Stupid Game being strong single contenders is so true but let's face it Think about it charted at #95 (still hurts cry.gif ), if that didn't hit the top 40 nothing on the album was going to... cry.gif It's a shame she didn't have The Sea ready for after her duet with Matt Cardle, he got a top 20 album off the back of it, and it could have set Think about it and the rest to chart better...
