Hello everyone cool2.gif Jay's given me the green light to post this!

Last year's Spice Rate gave me a long overdue schooling on solo Spice, and I really clicked with so many Melanie C tracks in particular. I've been revisiting them regularly and I've come up with a ranking of all 35, from When You're Gone right through to Blame It On Me.

You can expect results that, going by posts I've seen in this forum, WILL be controversial! laugh.gif Bear in mind that ultimately NONE of these carry any nostalgia value to me, so I'm pretty much ranking a group of songs I've known for less than a year, with few exceptions...! (I think I was only really familiar with I Turn to You, Loving You, Anymore and Dear Life before the rate, plus I kinda knew When You're Gone from the radio!)

Feel free to disagree with me along the way, I'm sure you all will, but let's make this into a fun discussion reliving some brilliant (and a couple of not so brilliant) tracks! Before I post last place, do we have any hopes for success and even hopes for failure? ohmy.gif

Before you post any a few things I have to comment on.

1) You clicked with so many Melanie C ones... you have brilliant taste already wub.gif

2) I love the picture you've created especially biggrin.gif

3) I love your Harry Styles sig - Harry is definitely the Melanie of the group (possibly Harry and Niall actually) wub.gif

4) That better just be the songs you've ranked and not the order because Cool and you and Cosmic shower are... oh god... I can't sick2.gif

wub.gif she fits in brilliantly alongside some of my all-time favourite singers. Lucie Silvas, Delta Goodrem, Natalie Imbruglia...! So glad you like the banner too heart.gif

Your taste in 1D members is excellent *.* it's a brilliant photo of Harry wub.gif

That's the list in release order!! Just so you guys know the full list of songs that I'll be talking about *.*

Stay tuned *.*

Just an fyi as well, this is simply my ranking of favourites - I'm not ranking based on which songs are technically the best, I'm ranking based on those I enjoy the most!! I think my actual #1 would change if I tried to be objective laugh.gif

I'll be honest they are the only 1D members I like, and actually I prefer them solo to being in the band as I was never a fan of 1D... although I do love Story of my life and really like What makes you beautiful, One thing and Little things wub.gif

Never really heard anything from Delta Goodrem although did she sing that You not I(IIII)? Love Natalie Imbruglia and Lucie Silvas though so I might have to check her out now.

I was always a huge 1D fan and Harry was my favourite from day 1, some things really do never change! laugh.gif WMYB remains my favourite wub.gif wub.gif

Delta sang Not Me, Not I if that's what you're thinking of! She had five top 10 hits in the UK back in the early 00s, if you like those two you'll definitely be a fan of Delta heart.gif

I don't understand why as it fits her pop-rock sound perfectly! Underrated (same with NBS!)

Omg hiya! sarah11.png So hyped for this to begin!

I'm really pleased that you've connected with Melanie's music, particularly as you were too young to be aware of her during the most successful part of her career. wub.gif

35 Cosmic Shower (Lost Humanity)
Ed Deedigan & The Kandu Collective with Melanie C



I know this was for charity, so I shouldn't really be TOO harsh on it, but this really is a very comfortable last. I heard the track once a few years ago - Jay sent it to me just to hear how terrible it was kink.gif and he was right - Melanie usually sounds brilliant, but I really don't think she does on this. It surprised me when I relistened earlier (only for its second ever play laugh.gif) that she almost sounded out of tune? It's not a song I'll return to anyway so it deserves its last place finish.

Omg, not someone finally uploading that song onto YouTube DeadBanana.gif

I agree with you that she sounds like she's out of tune, but I can't tell if that's because the production is really bad and her voice isn't meshing with it?

Either way... in the bin it goes x

Omg Next Best Superstar is another FAVE of mine wub.gif But I wouldn't say that's underrated I think that's fairly popular with her fans...
