Ooooh Lovelies,

I just heard the song many times in the past quarter of an hour! It's amaaaaaazing.
Beautifull song, strong voice of Geri's, strong lyrics and powerful backing. My hubby surprised me with a pre-download from I-tunes. We are all a bit angels in chains. Time to heaaaaaaaaal !
I'll jump into my bed now (it's late .. tiiiiime fooooor bed ... ) with Geri's song I cannot get out of my head for the rest of the night I am afraid. Spot on! A hit!

xxxxx Big kisssss Guinness!

I didn't either , and I only heard a bit of it . Didn't grab me and sounded like she was trying to be gospel with her limited range .. But I appreciate her doing it and proceeds going to Childline. I really liked things she said about sweet George . Feel little weepy about him today .

Geri Horner was 'smacked' in the head by the late George Michael
The late George Michael accidentally "smacked" Geri Horner in the head when they first went clubbing together and his single 'Fast Love' played.

"I went clubbing with George Michael when I first started hanging out with him. Remember, I'm a fan.

"It was the time of 'Fast Love'. We were both on the dance floor in the South of France. They put his record on, he was doing the moves and accidentally smacked me in the head."

Geri was left too "stunned" to know how to respond by the accidental smack.

She continued: "I was looking at him stunned. This was early days of knowing him and I had been walloped in the face by George."

Spice Girl Geri Horner – 'I once caught George Michael singing Mi Chico Latino!'

Did George have a favorite song of yours?

There are two things I can say to you. On my second album I wrote this song called Calling. Musically it’s the most intricate, the piano movement on it. He really liked it as a ballad. It didn’t do well here but it did in Russia! [Sings] ‘Calling out your name!’ Then once I caught him – you know when you’re doing your chores – singing Mi Chico Latino! I was like ‘Oh my god!’

Is it true you moved in with him after you left the Spice Girls?
Yes.

Can you recall a memory from that time?

Everybody knows I used to have eating issues. Once he caught me ‘eating my feelings’. I was at the fridge and he said ‘Oh darling, are you having a binge?!’ [Laughs]

I like it. Despite I've never been the fan of Geri's (solo) songs this is a good one. By the way I think never will be a tribute song what will be good enough for us.

I`m listening to The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2, Angel in Chains is on now ... you can hear George`s backing vocals singing "you gotta have faith", "understand me" and "Freedom" which is the best part of the song I think, very emotional ...

I think she's done a good job. It's pleasant enough (it was never going to be a masterpiece) and her PR has been faultless. Let's hope GM's birthday weekend remains marked by such positive memories.

I just heard the full song for the first time and I like it. The gospel-style chorus, with Shirley, Jay and Lucy singing "heal the pain" and "angels in chains" is very powerful, but maybe could've been repeated more. If I heard correctly Geri said they would all be performing the song on The One Show on Monday, so I'll look forward to that.

Better than I expected, - Geri is doing her best with the talents she got, can’t ask for more from her And so nice that George’s backup singers support her with their powerful voices!

I believe it is really heartfelt and she IS singing about George even though I cannot understand all the lyrics, but think the end lines could be something like this: “its time to release the angel in chains, its time to say goodbye and start to heal the pain” – WOW that touched me!
