So, my 11 choice was pretty easy here. Melanie C's "Northern Star" is my fave solo spice album ("The Sea" is up there too) and "I Turn to You" is among the clear highlights on it. Pretty sure the song was a hit over here (it seems to have been huge across Europe) because I remember one of my neighbours blasting it from their car radio a few years ago, but I haven't properly herd it before taking part in the Solo Spice debut albums rate in 2018. It's just a relentless slice of (Euro)dance pop. The production and instrumentation are insane - I mean, those strings alone! And it's just hook after hook, easily one of the most memorable songs here, like it or not. All that and it has some subtle melancholy vibe to it, I'm just completely sold on everything.
The only thing I'll tolerate when it comes to critiques are Melanie C's vocals, I can definitely tell why they can be a bit marmite in general. The song itself is perfect, sorry some of you can't hear it. At least it already won an entire rate.
Both the remix and album versions are 11-worthy and here are two more 11s from that excellent album:

Glad that the chaotic legend joined me by giving this song the highest possible score - taste!
