Re: New Single discussions

I really like the single cover, and it's a great single choice. I just wish there was more of a plan. I know it's different now with impact dates/streaming etc, and I know we have to be realistic but it is still possible to make a single an event with a release date and a bit of a campaign around it...

Re: Passion era interview, talked about 100% Pure Love, Breaking Glass, True love never dies......

It would have been interesting to see how Disco Sister Music would've panned out critically and commercially. I think a triple-whammy of 100% Pure Love, Ride It and Love Never Loved Me would've made for a far more successful campaign that what Desire/Passion turned out to be, but of course that's ea...

Clearly the alarm bells are ringing at any "send your footage in!" concept, but I think I'll reserve judgement until I see the final product.

thanks Jay1 for your algorithms x

992,000 is quite the jump for SYBT. Beyond the cheese factor of Wannabe/Stop and the Olympics effect of SUYL, it's really stood the test of time I think.

For UK releases,

It's been lovely watching all these performances and little interviews, like the promo trails of days gone by. It's sad that we don't have that in the UK anymore.

Omg, what a surprise! And it's been added 5 days ago, which means that 3 days before its official premiere/release date! Interestingly, I looked at this account late last night and it just had one video (the 1:53 clip which most of us have seen) - so this has clearly been uploaded privately and the...

Re: Geri Apologizes for Quitting the Spice Girls

I'm not saying the scrutiny wasn't well deserved given Geri's status, of course she put herself there. But how many of us have done a sly attack to someone on Facebook or a sublimial message on Instagram? We all do things which we think were right or funny at the time which we later regret.

Re: Geri Apologizes for Quitting the Spice Girls

Geri was 25 when she left the Spice Girls. How many of us are 25 and beyond now, changing our reasons and justifying our past decisions which were made (arguably) on a whim? Sometimes I wonder how our lives and decisions would be analysed and portrayed if given the same scrutiny that fans give to th...

Re: Reminder about rules on the forums

These rules have been mentioned over and over again to no avail. The only effective way to get rid of the nonsense is to be a lot stricter and actually ban people who refuse to listen. I agree. The cynic in me thinks it's a bit rich to disappear for months/years and then come back all guns blazing,...

Nice article from the Guardian but I can't help but feel he was a bit inflammatory - clearly goading Mel B in a bad mood (why would you?), telling Emma that Geri was your favourite Spice Girl (clearly that wasn't the preferred answer) and Melanie C never likes questions about the other girls.

So this was a biggest mistake release for her it seems. She could have turned this album around but she keeps repeating the same mistakes with releases etc. it seems like she wants to fail...

Re: Steps

I would imagine as well as being #1 on iTunes, Steps would be especially strong on physicals? They've done the bulk of the promo for this week now so I'd expect it'll drop, but they do have Loose Women coming up. How wonderful it would be to get that top spot.

Because the organisers want to give the less-fortunate, who can't afford tickets, the chance to see Melanie live. Clearly it has absolutely nothing to do with VOM tanking in Germany.
