For Once in My Life by Mel B

Melanie Brown a.k.a. Mel B is one of my childhood heroes. I do think that her Scary Spice persona is still evidently seen in her recent gig as judge of America’s Got Talent. She is fearless, talented and surpassed a lot of trials in her career and even personal life.

I loved her debut album “HOT” (1999). Her sophomore album “LA State of Mind” had very minimal publicity and the copies of the album are scarce. Imagine how happy I was (and I bet other Spice Girls fans were!) when she all of a sudden announced her new single called “For Once In My Life” via PerezHilton’s website. Woah, this is madness!

 

 

“For Once In My Life” is a feel-good dance track with a very positive message. The music video partly reminds me of the iconic “Wannabe” music video. When asked what pushed her to finally release a new song, she said that she got the inspiration while sitting on the judging panel of America’s Got Talent. She felt the urge to come up onstage and perform again. When she went home, she told her husband and close friends about it and viola, a new song is made!

FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE By Mel B (lyrics)

I’ve been gone in the dark and the shadows
Been afraid to throw my heart in the battle
Yesterday felt the weight of the shackles

Not anymore… not anymore

Turn the lights turn the lights turn the lights on
Wanna rise feel the rush wanna free fall
Through the night cause tonight
I’m unstoppable
Unstoppable

I wanna feel
I wanna feel

For once in my life I’m gonna let go
For once in my life, I’m gonna do it for me!
This is the time I’ve been waiting for
Stripping it all away I’m runnin’ free
For once in my life
For once in my life

Here I am! I think you know what I came for
Make it loud cause the world is my dance floor
Standing strong and it feels so incredible
Gimme some more gimme some more

Turn the lights turn the lights turn the lights on
Wanna rise feel the rush wanna free fall
Through the night cause tonight
I want it all
I want it all

I wanna feel
I wanna feel

For once in my life I’m gonna let go
For once in my life, I’m gonna do it for me!
This is the time I’ve been waiting for
Stripping it all away I’m runnin’ free
For once in my life
For once in my life
(it’s now or never)

Oh ohh ohhh ohhh ohhhh
Oh ohh ohhh ohhh ohhhh

I wanna feel…

For once in my life I’m gonna let go
For once in my life, I’m gonna do it for me!
This is the time I’ve been waiting for
Stripping it all away I’m runnin’ free
For once in my life
For once in my life

For once in my life I’m gonna let go
For once in my life, I’m gonna do it for me!
This is the time I’ve been waiting for
Stripping it all away I’m runnin’ free
For once in my life
For once in my life

As of writing, Mel B is not yet signed with a record label (she released the song and music video independently). It is her first song in eight years and I can say that she is off to a good start! Hopefully, she’ll collaborate with the best music producers. Come on, Mel B. Time to Spice Up the Music Charts again! 😀
