Ooooh these vocals arent good recorded
Its Hannahs voice that sounds out of place with the other 3
Oh dear. Its basically that no one is doing anything much with it. It works in the original because Geri starts it with her distinctive tone and then Melanie C (particularly) Mel B and Emma take it away with theirs. If you sing it without distinctive vocals it just goes nowhere . I thought they had hopes of getting that with some of the people they reportedly had in the workshop - but going for raw, inexperienced vocalists just produces something that sounds like an X factor audition that Simon won't like.
It would work well on stage if you just had Melanie C's track done with half the mpact , and if you made it a big spectacular, as in
Or if you had 4 people who sound distinctive as in the original
I think they are doomed though by their decision to try and avoid having anyone identifiable as individual Spice Girls. As soon as you sing this properly someone has to sing Melanie C's distinctive bits. - as soon as you do that, you identify one of the girls as her - and it doesn't take long then to identify them all and identify who is not there at all. Basically, you have a musical where you have Spice Girls songs that don't, and can't, sound like the Spice Girls - which doesn't strike me as one of the smarter ideas in Musical Theatre history.
