Melanie C & Emma Bunton Record The Gayest Duet Of 2012


^ Deceased at "you might meet Melanie in London!"

Between the fits of hysterical laughter and tears of embarrassment, I'm finding it quite hard to type - so this is going to be a short post. Former Spice Girls/failed pop stars Emma Bunton and Melanie C have joined forces to record an insanely tragic cover of "I Know Him So Well". You know that ridiculously over-the-top ballad from Chess? No? Ask your mother. Anyway, it was written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus (ie. half of ABBA) and is about as camp and uncool as it gets. Which is probably why I love it.

I'm not even going to deny spinning the craptastic original or Barbra Streisand's classy cover after a few wines but you need a big voice to pull it off and these sad bitches can barely hold a note between them. The Spice disaster is kind of amusing and the best thing about Mel C's musical theatre-inspired flop Stages, which recently peaked at #50 in the UK. I know the song is complete rubbish but I can't help but enjoy it on some fucked-up level. Hell, it's worth checking out for cheesy video (below) alone. Make no mistake. This is the gayest thing you'll hear all year.

Worst single EVER!Even Skeletor could have done a better job. Because she knows which producers to blow to make it sound like she can almost sing. That pair sound like the dying hyenas...

If you like this try listening to Mel's version of Maybe This Time (from Cabaret). Girl should be on Broadway or off off off Broadway... like maybe Long Island
