SPICE GIRLS SOLO SET-LIST FOR CLOSING CEREMONY?
The Olympics 2012 Closing Ceremony starts tonight on BBC HD at 8.50pm.
By now we know that the Spice Girls will be performing as part of the ‘Brit Pop’ celebration, the rumoured song? Spice Up Your Life with entrance on those studded black cabs before going into ‘Wannabe’ the song that introduced them to the world.
We thought though, what about if you had to pick a solo song for each girl? We’d like to know what you would choose, leave a comment or contact us @popledge for your choice for the girls.
Here would be our Spice Girls solo hits choices..
Emma Bunton – Crcikets Sing for Anamaria – the track has got a laid back party vibe to it, I’m sure it would get all the South American countries moving! Second choice ‘Maybe’.
Melanie B – not so much choice with Mel B, I think for a global performance I’d have to go for ‘Word Up’ and perhaps she could get Missy Elliot to do a little rap on it with Timbaland. Second choice, her best single in my opinion – Feels So Good!
Victoria Beckham – I have to say good on Victoria for coming back together with the girls for this Olympic gig, in her new role as fashion designer she doesn’t really have to do anything music wise any more. My choice, and this could go with a dramtic performance would be ‘Let Your Head Go’ she could basically re-create the below video and go mad on stage! Second choice..Not Such an Innocent Girl…but tbh I’d rather just see her strut about rather than sing that one!
Geri Halliwell has perhaps the most fun and camp back catalogue out of the girls – perfect for the Closing Ceremony! I’d like her to perform ‘Scream if You Wanna Go Faster’ whilst riding a giant sumo wrestler..all the athletes could scream on…equally ‘Ride It’ would work well in that situation..second choice..It’s Raining Men!
Melanie C – arguably the most talented of the bunch and really the only one who has managed to sustain a solo career since the band split. She is also now a West End star with Blood Brothers and soon to be Jesus Christ Superstar under her belt. My pick would be ‘I Turn To You’ what a dance tune to end the section on! Second choice ‘I Want Candy’ as canons fire sweets out over the athletes!
