With the exception of Melanie C (and I'm being generous), the Spice Girls' solo careers in music have pretty much run their course. And since it's impossible to talk about one without mentioning another, I thought it would be nice to have a group thread. I'll start things off with a thought about each of their respective solo careers. Melanie B: What the hell was she thinking releasing "Hot" barely a month before the big Spice comeback? The album should have been released in 2001, with "Feels So Good" and "Hotter" as the first two singles. Melanie C: She should have released "Gaga" as the lead single for "Northern Star". While I understand why she wanted to go with "Goin' Down", "Gaga" serves a similar purpose in showcasing her in a very different light, and is also just... a better song. "Goin' Down" was such a loud, radical departure, and they were forced to spend way too much time reversing the backlash. Geri Halliwell: I'm amazed by how gut-smart she was when she was promoting "Schizophonic", although I'll never forgive her for steamrolling over Emma's first single campaign. Emma Bunton: I live for her Motown sound and wish she'd released "Better Be Careful" as a single. Victoria Beckham: What was Her Grace Dame Beckham thinking with her bizarre attempt to become the British answer to J.Lo? She should have stuck to the UK garage sound, that was surprisingly perfect for her.
