I've always adored 60's music, mainly because I used to hear it a lot growing up so it's no surprise that I adore this album. I've never really liked the Spice Girls though, except for one or two songs from 'Forever' and 'Stop' but that was it. I remember seeing the video to 'Maybe' a long time ago on TV but I wasn't aware that it was Emma Bunton so I never saw it again. Recently though, I was YouTube hopping and I found the video to it again, and I adored it, which caused me to get my hands on a copy of this album. Sure enough, I adore everything about it.
This is one of the lounge-y type songs, not 90's or 2000's pop, 60's pop. The kind of song you would hear in a fancy metropolis club back then with socialites crawling the place. Got it? Got it. Even if I do think that it's very 60's, I can hear bits and pieces of now in it, and I think that's why I adore this song so much.
Another factor is the melody. If you've read my past reviews, you'll find that for me, melody is 90% of why I like a certain song and the arrangement and lyrics only second to the melody. This song is one of those songs I absolutely adore because of the melody. Simply put, it's amazing and it fits the arrangement effortlessly.
Out of all the Spice Girls' solo albums, I've got to say, I adore Emma and Victoria's the most, but I do love Emma's a bit more. I mean, R&B is nice, but sometimes I need a break from all the R&B and I got that with Emma's album, it's a must-listen. Here's the lead single of the album just so you can get a feel of the whole thing.
My rating? A big, fat, 5/5 for being fresh and a bit different!
