Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) is a song by the Spice Girls.

BackgroundEdit

For the single, please see Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) (single)

Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) is the thirteenth track from their compilations album Greatest Hits. This would be the last song that The Spice Girls released as a quintet. This is the last Spice Girls song to feature Victoria Beckham and Mel C.

Writing and CompositionEdit

The song was initially written by Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell with help from producers, with the other three girls adding later on. Although gossip sites claimed that Victoria Beckham had a significantly shorter solo than the rest of the girls, a spokesperson denied the accusation, saying that the parts were divided equally. In fact, it is Melanie Brown with an almost non-existent solo part. Her lone solo can be found at the very end, where she sings "'Cause I'm giving it all/Yeah, I'm giving it all to you." Additionally, during the solos of Halliwell and Beckham, Bunton harmonizes and Brown provides backup vocals ("ahhh..."). Along with her solo, Beckham is the only girl to sing in between the second chorus (with the exceptions of the lines "Say you love me and I'll say I love you too" and "Just remember what simple words can do"). Beckham is also the only Spice Girl to sing the song's subtitle of "Friendship never ends."

Geri Halliwell described the single as a "big love song" and "a Spice Girl classic", Melanie Chisholm in her 2008 appearance on Never Mind the Buzzcocks announced, that she thought "this song is not good at all" and that at least she was against the release of any new material when the record company was trying to market the Greatest Hits release.

LyricsEdit

Album VersionEdit

The time is now or never
To fit the missing piece
To take this on together
You make me feel complete
We fall into the future
And through the looking glass
The light shines over our heads
And so it comes to pass


To go beyond the surface
To reach into your soul
This love is not demanding
My heart has told me so
I hold on to my hero
With faith enough to fly
The power to imagine
Will keep this love alive


Let's make the headlines loud and true
I wanna tell the world I'm givin' it all to you
Let's make the headlines loud and clear
The best things suddenly happen when you are here
And if I lost my way you'd carry me home
Take me all the way to heaven never leave it alone (everything)
And it's just like everything matters when you are near (matters when you're near)

And it feels so good
Every bells gonna ring
Your love is alive and it's making me sing
I could fly wanna cry
Want the whole world to know
We are together come on baby let's go


And words yet to be spoken
Will fall upon the page
Spelling out true devotion
Is all we need to say


Let's make the headlines loud and true
(Say you love me and I'll say I love you too)
I wanna tell the world I'm giving it all to you
(Just remember what simple words can do)
Let's make the headlines loud and clear
(All that I have I give to you my friend)

The best things suddenly happen when you are here
(Just remember friendship never ends)
And if I lost my way you'd carry me home
Take me all the way to heaven never leave it alone (everything)
And it's just like everything matters when you are near (matters when you're near)
(Say you love me and I'll say I love you too)

Let's make the headline true this time
(Just remember what simple words can do)
There's no hiding from this magical state of mind
(I feel loved with you, I feel loved with you)
And if I lost my way you'd carry me home
(I know, you take me, all the way to heaven)
Take me all the way to heaven, never leave me alone (everything)
And it's just like everything matters when you are near (matters when you're near)
(Everything matters, it really matters)

Lets make the headlines, loud and true
(I feel loved with you, I feel loved)
Lets make the headlines

Cause I'm giving it all
Yeah I'm giving it all to you
