#SongoftheWeek: Melanie C – ‘Room for Love’

  • ARTIST: Melanie C
  • SONG: Room for Love

SO ALEX, WHY IS THIS YOUR SONG OF THE WEEK?

For her 28th solo single (yes, it’s that many now for those keeping count), the artist formerly known as Sporty’s offered up one of the best cuts from her seventh studio album, ‘Version of Me’, that came out exactly a year ago this week.

Melanie C’s solo material, of all the Spice Girls, has always been famously hard to put into any one particular box – who can forget the switch in contrast of styles on the singles from her 1999 debut ‘Northern Star’? – and ‘Room for Love’ is no exception to the rule.

Atmospheric, but with a foot gently easing on the trendier sounds of the moment, the single carries with it an optimistic message of hope and finding promise in new doors opening when another one closes in its lyrics.

Best of all with this release is a touching video, with live tour footage interspersed with a compilation of her fans – and some very recognisable faces – giving their own takes on the song. Best make room for ‘Room for Love’ on your playlists, then.

‘Room for Love’ is out to stream and download now on Red Girl Records. Twitter: @MelanieCmusic
