Victoria Beckham only released two singles from her debut album: Not Such an Innocent Girl and A Mind of Its Own. Coincidentally both singles peaked at #6 in the UK singles chart!

Which song is the best in your opinion?

Both were great for different reasons...but I'm actually gonna say A Mind Of Its Own for me on this occasion. It was a really pretty little song, she looked lovely in the video too, rocking all the Enya vibes in style if not in sound. It actually had more airplay than 'Innocent Girl' had as well, Radio 2 played it quite a lot as I recall.

Looking back it was 2 really poor single choices. The songs feel like they were chosen for the narrative of the sing rather than the quality. Especially when I wish or Girlfriend were just sitting there.

I think they are both pretty terrible. NSAIG has a catchy enough melody but the lyrics are cringe. A mind of it's own is average, works as an album track but not a single. However I went for AMOIO.

NSAIG gets my vote. Have never enjoyed listening to AMOIO. It's just too cheesy.

Not Such An Innocent Girl by a hair...but I like both. I have the somewhat rare opinion that both songs are quite a bit better than Let Your Head Go and This Groove.

I've always felt like Not Such An Innocent Girl was one of those singles (like Geri's Calling) that fans rather liked...until the chart placing came out. Is it my favorite song on the album? No...that's I Wish. I also prefer Like That as a song...though I don't know if that one screams out to be a single so much as it's just a strong album track.

I think Not Such An Innocent Girl was the right song to launch the album. To my ears...the obvious single choices were Not Such An Innocent Girl - A Mind of Its Own - I Wish - IOU. So. To me...she was on the right track (just so long as she released the real I Wish...and not that tragic duet version). I still think she had good material for singles...and the album was overall just fine. It only really falls apart for me at the end (I've never particularly liked Unconditional Love and Every Part of Me). I've always felt her material just suffered from the over saturation of solo Spice that year.

I don't like Mind Of Its Own much at all, but Innocent Girl is literally one of THE defining songs of 2001, absplute belter. Should have been a no.1.
