WHEN THIS GROUP FIRST HIT THE SCENE IN 1997, I SAID "WOW, POP MUSIC IS BACK. TERRIBLE POP MUSIC." BUT I WOULD SOON EAT THOSE WORDS AS WITH THE RELEASE OF THEIR SECOND U.S. SINGLE SAY YOU'LL BE THERE BECAME MY DAMN ANTHEM AND HAD ME CONFESSING MY LOVE FOR TRASHY POP. HONEY, I EVEN PAID (ONE OF THE VERY FEW PEOPLE) TO SEE THEIR MOTION PICTURE SPICE WORLD. SO NATURALLY, WHEN THEY MADE THEIR RETURN IN 2000, I WAS GUNG HO! I JUST KNEW THAT THEIR MORE URBAN SOUND WOULD JUST BLOW UP. I WAS WRONG AS THIS SINGLE DID NOT EVEN MANAGE TO CRACK THE HOT 100. TOO BAD BECAUSE THIS SONG AND ACCOMPANYING VIDEO IS SLAMMIN'.

This is my favorite spice girl track! I'm so glad someone else recognizes it too. And I was so happy to catch all of them live on tour recently in NJ. Made me very happy. :) Too bad they didnt release a live DVD. :(
