Just because the Spice Girls are getting back together…

…let’s not forget that a couple of them actually managed to pull together some pretty enjoyable solo singles.

Melanie C (with Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes), “Never Be The Same Again”:

Emma Bunton, “What Took You So Long”

Geri Halliwell, “Look At Me”

(I’d love to also post videos from Victoria Beckham and Melanie Brown, but, frankly, I’m just not a very big fan of their material.)

Lou Pearlman – former king of crap, now king of fraud

Attaboy, Louie! We always knew you were slimy underneath it all. Former boy band Svengali Lou Pearlman has been indicted on three counts of bank fraud, and one count each of mail and wire fraud. Allegedly Pearlman defrauded 1000 or so investors out of $315 million. Not only that, but various banks are claiming he owes them around $120 million. It’s a great day for Lou, and an even greater day for those of us who never liked the boy band schlock he was seducing the media with for way too long.

Video Vault – Nico

The once-beautiful Nico now reduced to a strung out junkie performing The Velvet Underground’s “All Tomorrow’s Parties.”

Video Vault – Go West

“We Close Our Eyes” from 1985. I remember buying the band’s great debut album the same day I bought Madonna’s Like a Virgin – at the local Wal-Mart, no less. Ah yes, Go West on vinyl and Madge on cassette. I believe I originally saw this video on Nickelodeon’s “Nick Rocks.” Good times.
