Soon after, it was pushed back, in this first case to May In early May the release date changed again to June A competition appeared in the Evening Mail 19 May saying the following:. On May 27 the Spice Girls were due to appear on the National Lottery , and they were booked in to perform two songs on the show.
It was a highly unlikely decision that with a double A-side single planned, they would perform a song released over six months ago, instead of both of the double A-side tracks. On 31 May , Geri left the Spice Girls, throwing their plans into chaos.
The reasons for why the song was removed from the double A-side single has never been confirmed, although it was rumoured that there were problems with the remixes, that the video was not ready, and that with Geri out of the band they would have to re-record parts of the song, which would take valuable time out of the schedule, since they were going to start the North American leg of the Spiceworld Tour.

It lends credence to the notion that life goes on, even if a friendship does not. When it was finally released, Viva Forever returned the Spice Girls to 1. It was a fitting end to their imperial era as a quintet. But it was a bittersweet success; there was an air of acceptance that whatever might happen next, things would never quite be the same. In the days before social media, all we could do at that moment was rally behind the Spice Girls and show our support in the only way we knew how: to buy their music.
This loss of innocence, Box explains, was something he felt the Spice Girls represented at the time. But they were part of a larger identikit pop music scene, with massed produced hits similar to toys. Often Rupert comes across some weird living toy in the woods or some secret doorway in a tree. But why does the boy disappear into a machine in a graveyard of plastic containers? Never to be seen again! It becomes more like a David Lynch film.Spice Girls – Viva Forever Label: Virgin – 8 2 1, Virgin – VSCDE , Virgin – VSCDE
