Surely their most underrated single? Discuss!

Darkchild did that!

wub.gif So underrated! I've never understood the dislike (and even hatred) some fans have for this one. Maybe it's just because it's not the usual pop they wanted from them? I loved it from the first moment I heard it (its September 2000 Radio 1 premiere, which I recorded on cassette and played a LOT until the CDs finally came out kink.gif ).

I think as early 00s R&B goes this is up there with the best actually, and it's by far the best song to come from the Forever album imo.

Certainly one of their best videos too, love the Air/Fire/Earth/Water theme, the pyramid formation dance routine. I'm still amused by some areas of the internet saying this video includes Illuminati symbols. kink.gif

Also, The Return of the Spice Girls tour performances of it were incredible. *.*

It sounds so tinny and unpolished though. sad.gif I don't even hate it, I just think compared to the wholesome feel of the pop they were giving out, this just feels much weaker. So uninteresting and just "there". I appreciate they wanted to go for something new though, but for me, it didn't quite work as well as it could've done.

'Holler' was a wonderful moment. It was amazing to see them delivering a proper dance routine during all the promo.

Can't agree with it being tinny. There's lashings of bass in there.

I thought it was sexy and mature. It reflected the change in their fans, who had grown up in their absence.
ChristMaz!
It’s next to Goodbye the best song on Forever. I do hope they perform it on tour.

Masterpiece and I hope they perform it on the tour and don't ignore it because of Vicky lines tongue.gif

Dinky dinky dink! Always surprised when she doesn't break out into Hear and Now or Tragedy!!

I adore Holler it's fantastic. I think my initial dislike of Forever was because Holler set the expectation way too high and it is by far the highlight of the album. Over time I've grown to like Forever as an album but I loved Holler from the get go!
Michael Andrew
Frankly, if I don't see boys on leashes at Wembley, I will be disappointed laugh.gif

Totally agree. 'Holler' puts the rest of the album in the shade.

Except of course for 'Goodbye', which is perfection but doesn't fit on the album at all.

To be honest I forget Goodbye is on it, I took it off my itunes so it ends with Oxygen as it sounds so out of place. Goodbye sits on the GH instead.

The album is complete TRASH apart from the three singles

They wrote produced and recorded it in 2 days laugh.gif

Sure 'Forever' doesn't hold a candle to 'Spice World'. But "trash" is a tad strong.

In its favor, the vocals are some of their best (especially for Victoria). For me, it highlights their individual strengths and vocal styles.

There is unfulfilled potential in the likes 'If You Wanna Have Some Fun' and 'Get Down With Me'. Their lacklustre production frustrates me.

Holler has to be on of their most underrated no?

It's such a great pop song imho.

This is a very good point. I think the main issue with those songs in particular AND Right Back At Ya was the shit quality of the production. Which is a shame, as they are all really great songs that just need a final push to be amazing.

Wasting My Time, apart from Holler, is the second best song in the album in my opinion, but I do adore the production on that one!
