It's raining men : From Dotmusic
Imagine if it did really rain
men. Or women. Either way it would bloody hurt. Slightly less
painful than getting caught in a downpour of twelve stone humans
without an umbrella is Geri's watered down rendition of of the
Weather Girls' camp disco classic, as featured on the soundtrack
to Bridget Jones's Diary.
The strings swoop and stab, the Hi-NRG disco beats bounce along
with just enough oomph and the gospelly backing singers do their
bit. It's just that Geri's vocals -as sassy as she likes to
think she is- are flat and lifeless compared to the gutsy
soulful delivery of the original.
A pretty pointless exercise really, but no doubt those who
haven't heard the 1983 original will lap this up. It's a shame
really cos Geri's first post-Spice single 'Look At Me' was a
classic pop tune which promised so much.
