#5 Song of 2013


Dear Poptastic Readers,

#5 in my favourite songs of 2013 is “For Once In My Life” by Mel B. You can click on the song title to see what Poptastic Confessions had to say about it previously. 


Scary Spice came back after a long absence with this lovely gem. I’ve liked her solo material before, but with this song, she hit the ball out of the park. And she did it on her own dime. The result is an inspirational, wonderful song.

The video is a top-notch affair. And it is on the set of Desperate Housewives! The video is also a nod to the Spice Girls’ video for their first single “Wannabe” where it looks like it was filmed in one take. Obviously with the costume changes, it wasn’t!



Melanie B has had solo songs on my countdown before before and under different names (Melanie B, Melanie G, Melanie Brown and now Mel B) …



1998: "I WantYou Back" #18
1999: "Word Up" #22
2000: "Tell Me" #19
2001: "Feels So Good" #7
2001: "Lullaby" #18
2005: "Today" #9

So “For Once In My Life” is her highest solo placing in my countdown! Melanie has been at the #1 spot on my countdown before as the Spice Girls had my #1 song of 1997 with "Spice Up Your Life."

“For Once In My Life” is available on iTunes. Don't delay. Buy it today!

Cheers then,
