THE SPICE GIRLS were great as a band, but they were just as fantastic solo.
But who produced the best solo track? Let the countdown begin.
13. Lullaby- Mel BSource: spicegirlsmedia/YouTube
This is the first of two Mel B entries on the list and it’s the last one. What does that tell us? Mel B made a better X Factor judge than a solo artist.
12. Northern Star – Mel C
We’re not gonna mislead you. This list is extremely Mel C heavy. Northern Star ranks so low, only because she has so many more bangers to come.Source: emimusicnl/YouTube
11. I Want You Back – Mel BSource: MelanieBVEVO/YouTube
OK this is a tune. She mainly has Missy Elliot to thank for that, but we won’t rub that in.
I’m the Mel to EL B. You know me!
10. What I Am – Emma Bunton
Ridiculously catchy and nostalgic. It’s only so low on the list because she sounds like she literally cannot be arsed with this whole singing lark. Classic.Source: TinTinOutVEVO/YouTube
9. It’s Raining Men – Geri
What school-girl among us did not own this on CD? The video was inspirational, also.

8. Look At Me – Geri
Another stunning video from Ginger Spice here. It’s the kinda song that could only be sung by the likes of someone who walked out on The Spice Girls at their peak. The balls of it all.Source: Geri Halliwell/YouTube
7. Not Such An Innocent Girl – Victoria Beckham
Victoria, no one thought you were innocent. We do think you absolutely cannot sing, but this song is so autotuned we can just about appreciate it for the novelty of it all.Source: VictoriaBeckhamVEVO/YouTube
6. Mi Chico Latino – Geri
Geri just did NOT come to mess around. We have this song to thank for any latin-infused pop since. Even those produced by genuine latinas.Source: Geri Halliwell/YouTube
5. Maybe – Emma Bunton
Maaaaybe, maybe I’m in love. La la la la la la la.Source: RIPa4ok/YouTube
4. Out Of Your Mind – Victoria Beckham
Did someone say autotune? Forgive me, but this is an absolute out and out banger. Who doesn’t miss Dane Bowers on the music scene?
3. What Took You So Long – Emma Bunton
Whoever was in charge of picking tracks for Emma Bunton did a seriously underappreciated brilliant job. If this track doesn’t take you back to your summer holidays from school, surfing the aisles of Virgin Megastores to find this CD, then I don’t know what to do with ye at all.Source: EmmaBuntonVEVO/YouTube
2. Never Be The Same Again – Mel C
Mel C takes home the top two spots, and deservedly so. She was the best singer in the Spice Girls so it’s no surprise that her solo career produced noughties anthems like this.Source: MelanieCVEVO/YouTube
1. When You’re Gone – Bryan Adams and Mel C
This was the first single I ever bought on cassette tape so it holds a special meaning for me. Not to mention, it’s an absolute banger.Source: BryanAdamsVEVO/YouTube
