SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): Mel B – “For Once In My Life”

Scary spice Mel B is back with the uplifting dance pop confection “For Once In My Life.” The production is similar to what you would expect from a big name dance producer and pop artist collaboration – like David Guetta and Kelly Rowland or Calvin Harris and Rihanna – complete with positive and inspirational lyrics that would be the equivalent of a mature or modernized “girl power” anthem (should we call it “woman power”)? You’ve got to love an artist who can deliver lines like “the world is my dance floor” believably with the life experiences of being up and down while in the spotlight. The video is quite a bit of fun, playfully filmed to be like a real-life single take but obviously isn’t. “For Once In My My Life” is the kind of song that a mom and daughter can have fun with, singing and dancing together.
