Four songs recorded in 2000 emerged on SoundCloud on Wednesday, before being removed less than 24 hours later.
The internet briefly went into meltdown on Wednesday as four previously unreleased Spice Girls songs appeared online, only to be taken down early on Thursday morning.
The songs are believed to have been recorded at the same time as their third and final studio album Forever, which was released in 2000. Their titles are ‘A Day In Your Life’, ‘Pain Proof’, ‘If It’s Lovin’ Your On Mind’ and ‘Right Back At Ya’. The last of these is an alternative version of the one that actually appeared on Forever.

Everyone seems to know the score; They've seen it all before
As the England football team prepare for their biggest challenge yet, facing the world’s top teams in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup, some of the U.K’s biggest stars have seen football and music combine once more to cultivate the official World Cup song. It debuts on March 21st – Sport Relief night.

The Spice Girls reunited briefly in 2012, but Scary Spice Mel B is hoping to get the group back together for good. She knows at least one member is going to need some encouragement though.
Mel B is now a judge on 'America's Got Talent'
Melanie Brown spoke with The Daily Mail about her love for her four former bandmates, and how she hopes they will soon be together again.

Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear.
Oh, bless Geri Halliwell. The former Spice Girl was tasked with performing her new single Half of Me during an appearance on Australian sports programme The Footy Show this week, though things didn't really go to plan.
"How often to do we have an international superstar on the stage?" said one of the Footy Show's presenters before introducing Geri, "She's one of our favourite red-heads, and don't forget she's a member of the Australia's Got Talent show!"
The 41-year-old is releasing her new song down-under and, in fairness, agreed to sing a live rendition on the NRL show in front of an arena full of fans. Unfortunately for Halliwell, she regularly went out of tune and the dancing was frankly ridiculous.

The 39-yea-old pop star is expanding her horizons.
It’s the circle of life – while some girl groups are reuniting, others are calling it quits for good. Such is the fate of 90s wonder The Spice Girls, at least as far as Melanie Chisholm (Mel C) is concerned. The singer commented for The Sun that the group, comprising of herself, Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell, Emma Burton and Victoria Beckham (nee Adams) wasn’t likely to head back in to the studio to record new music. However, she didn’t rule out further tours, so all is not lost for the five remaining Spice Girls fans out there.

In the meantime, Mel C is pursuing some creative endeavors of her own and targeting the talent show market this time. While it isn’t clear whether producers of BBC’s The Voice have actually contacted the performer, she does seem to have her sights set on a judging spot. It makes perfect sense, following the natural progression from pop star to fading/faded popstar to reality show judge.
