Spice Girls Make “Headlines” with Their Boring First Single

October 29th, 2007 // 8 Comments

The Spice Girls’ first single for their highly-anticipated comeback appears to be something of a dud. Opting to come out the gate with a slow ballad possessing senseless lyrics and a beat that threatens to lull the listener to sleep, the Spice Girls have released their single, “Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)” and it’s now getting airplay on the British airwaves. As usual, I can’t tell the difference between anyone’s voice, unless it’s Sporty interjecting with the occasional slightly more difficult verse here and there. Here’s a sampling of the song’s lyrics.

Let’s make the headlines loud and true.
Want to tell the world I’m giving it all to you.
Let’s make the headlines loud and clear.
The best things suddenly happen when you are here.

I don’t understand who’s getting “all of it,” but then again I also assumed that the lyrics from “Wannabe” implied that if the suitor in question had no interest in bedding the singer’s friends, then he should look for love elsewhere. Such is the mystery of the Spice. And Victoria Beckham still is too busy to smile, but we can report with 99% certainty that her hair appears to be growing out.

  1. I couldn’t agree more, the single is boring as heck.

    If that is the best they can come up with they are sunk.

    It could of been worse, they could of re-released an older single remixed or jazzed up.

    While on the subject of the spice girls, the tour could be in trouble, it has been suggested that there has been a few cat fights amongst the girls. It wouldn’t surprise me if Geri pulls another disappearing act like last time.

    Also there are claims that MEL C was bullied into doing the tour which would explain why she was the last to agree. Another claim is that the tour would happen with or without her so she must of agreed out of guilt.

    The Final word, Vicky looks even thinner than ever, in the images of this post are Vicky at her worse. Mind you she has had a chest complaint which could threaten the tour.

    For more on this check out the daily mail which is a regular source of information for ASL.

  2. OMG I said the same thing about that “Wannabe” song! hahha

    Whatever though… the Sprice Girls are way better known for their popularity than the quality of their music anyway.

    (I think we may be the only ones actually listening to the lyrics. lol!)

    Imagine having more money than you know what to do with but being unable to sit down to a slap up dinner for fear of putting on one ounce in weight.

    the sigle is dreadful but it’ll get loads of air play, it’ll be a Christmas number one.

    Okay bitch! I love your site. Read it every day. But do not fucking diss on the Spice Girls. I love them. And if you followed them correctly, they said their new single was intended to sound like a typical old Spice Girls song. Nothing “new” sounding. The single was aimed for old Spice Girls fans. I will agree the single is kind of…, well anyways. Anyways, if you had done your research correctly you would have known that the single is the 2007 BBC Children In Need Charity Single. All proceedes from UK sales of the commercial CD single will go towards that charity. And ballads are the big seller for this charity. Not fun fast pop dance songs. And the song is about the girls relationship.

    And to that first fuck face who commented. Their tour is not in trouble, if anything it’s turning out to be the biggest selling come back tour of all time. And NO! Melanie was not bullied into doing the tour. Melanie stated in an interview that she’d rather have it all FIVE than FOUR, and she didn’t want to be the one to let people down.

    Here Here! I’d much rather have the spice girls back than the same old rock pap that is being chucked out at the moment. Im sick of being made to listen to rock crap all the time.
