Half Of Me by Geri Halliwell

Dear Poptastic Readers,

In a couple of weeks, Geri Halliwell (aka Ginger Spice) will have a new song out in Australia called "Half Of Me." And as you might remember, last month we did a little Spice Girls history that also included the solo careers of the Girls, Geri's included.

This will be Geri's 11th solo single. The song is a mid-tempo affair. Geri debuted the song at a gay club in Australia. And then on a TV Show is Australia called The Footy Show. We have yet to hear the studio version, or see a video, but I think all that is coming soon. Here is her TV performance of the song.

Now, keep in mind that Geri isn't a singer's singer. She is no BeyoncĂ© when it comes to her pipes. But that is part of the charm. I will venture to say that Geri's live singing has improved quite a bit over the years. And Geri is a very good songwriter as she's had some really nice melodies over the years. 

Now that Twitter is around ... some people have been less than kind. But I suppose in this digital world, it is easier for people to write bullying statements behind the safety of their keyboard. Popjustice.com has little piece called "14 reasons the Geri Halliwell single might not be shit on a stick." A sense of humor is required for the reading.

I like the new song. I'm not crazy about the bullshit line. I like the song, but I'm not sure that I love it. Only time will tell.

"Half Of Me" is released in Australia on the 25th of October.

Cheers then,
