    You can hear her on her own towards the end, glad that microphone was turned down.

    If they do X Factor they should sing Goodbye and have a montage of Victoria clips on the screen behind to make it look like a tribute performance at her funeral.

    YES.

    Goodbye doesn't get enough attention.

    And I love those kind of awful cheesy tributes for people who are still alive!

    The vocals for the 2 Become 1 chorus are a bit weird - Emma and Geri sing the main bit, Melanie C and Victoria do the 'wanna make love to ya' bits, and Melanie B warbles and does the 'set your spirit free'. That's sort of why Emma is so prominent in the song. But yes, Geri doesn't know how to blend.

    Or, for maximum effect, they could kill her first...

    Truth.

    It’s my favourite of their triumvirate of festive singles. Although I accept 2 Become 1 is more credible.

    Goodbye, sadly, will always be marred by the fact that it’s one of their few four-piece singles. It’s a bit weird to think now that Geri would be involved in promoting a song that was marketed as a tribute to her departure.

    She did sing it with the rest of the girls during The Return of the Spice Girls Tour and I found it WRONG.

    Didn't Geri claim to have written Goodbye at one stage? Or am I making that up? It does sound like the sort of claim she would make.

    Apparently the bones of it were written before she left, her and Emma apparently.

    And to think the next song they would write together would be Headlines :(

    Geri also wrote Holler and the song about birthdays that she did for Prince Charles.

    I do feel sorry for Geri. She didn't have much of a voice in the early days, but I sort of liked her husky, bolshy tone in the Spice days. After having her nodules removed, suddenly she can 'hit' notes that she couldn't before, so she sings much more earnestly, but its a pretty excrutiating experience.

    It's better than that, did you know Geri wrote Nothing Compares 2U for Sinead O'Connor?

    I always thought it was a shame she asked to be left off the credits of Bohemian Rhapsody so she wouldn't outshine Freddie.

    Between Victoria saying Geri leaving meant the group could do dance routines, and the rest saying she can't blend vocally, it's no wonder she's always clung to her input writing the songs.

    I always found the fact Geri not being able to BLEND a bit AMAZING, I've always wondered WHY there's no evidence of her audition anywhere online unlike the other girls.

    I Was mesmerized at an early age by her powerful VOX in this performances particularly, clearly TOO strong and powerful to blend at the 1.15 mark :disco:



    and she was obviously RESTRAINING herself in this one, her mouth is moving yet no sound is made, what a kind soul avoiding to upstage the rest of the girls

    How FLAT is she in that Mama performance :D

    I mean, not Lift Me Up levels of flat, but even Menly couldn’t salvage that performance.

    Their Twitter is proclaiming the Dublin date to be sold out but there are rather a lot of tickets still available including Gold Circle. :bruised:

    Yeah but the gig is post-Brexit, by which time the exchange rate will mean that 15000 seats in € will be 20000 seats in GBP.

    probably because back when fucking Ginger left and they toured without her (TWICE) most of us were still living with our parents and didn't make enough money on our own, yet

    what a shame
