Bad Headlines

The Spice Girls' comeback single is achieving the dubious distinction of shaming both them and Children In Need. Indeed, it's managed to pull of the feat of being the lowest-selling CIN single ever, which - considering its antecedents include Shane Richie doing I'm Your Man and Johnny Vaughan singing with Denise Van Outen - is quite a thing.

On the other hand, nobody really much wanted anything new from the Spices anyway, and the single sounds like an offcut from the disappointing third album.

Next year, get John Simm in to do something from the Spices back catalogue in character as the Master. Stop, perhaps.

Never one to let the facts stand in the way of a story slagging off Victoria Beckham, the Mirror conveniently forgets the 1986 Children In Need single Heroes / A Long Way To Go. Featuring Suzi Quatro and "members of Bronski Beat", it reached the lofty heights of number 76...

Children In Need didn't release another fund-raising record for 11 years.

YES. The Master singing 2 become 1 would be the best thing ever.

Set your spirit free, it's the only way to be
Silly games that you were playing
Empty words we both were saying
Let's work it out boy, let's work it out boy
Any deal that we endeavor
boys and girls feel good together
Take it or leave it, take it or leave it
Are you as good as I remember baby? Get it on, Get it on
'cause tonight, is the night,when 2 become 1

(add this to 10's "beard" response in Time Crash and ....)
