Melanie G - Word UpFollowing the No. 1 success of her debut solo single, "I Want You Back", Scary Spice returns after her maternity leave with this, a cover of the Cameo classic. Whilst "I Want You Back" was totally unlike any of the Spice Girls songs, this is totally unlike "I Want You Back". It's funky, upbeat, catchy, and it's going to be another huge hit.

The second release from the "Austin Powers 2: The Spy Who Shagged Me" soundtrack is this cover version. It manages to distinguish itself by being easily the worst version of "Word Up" anyone has recorded thus far. It starts well enough, but starts to grate inside a minute, and by the end I was trying to cut my own ear off with a ruler. Avoid.
