Look At Me

Album: Schizophonic (1999)
Charted: 2

Songfacts®:

  • This was Halliwell's debut single after leaving the Spice Girls the previous year. After a vast amount of publicity and promotion the single fell only 700 copies short of reaching #1 in the UK.
  • The video was very controversial as it featured a funeral for Ginger Spice. The song was nothing like what she performed with the Spice Girls. >>

  • Geri Halliwell told NME this was the song that changed her life. "I love the writing process," she said. "I would probably say I'm a better writer than I am a singer. 'Look At Me' - my solo song - you know, I wrote that album [Schizophonic] and that was very life-changing. It was very gut-instinct writing - it wasn't conscious, it wasn't trying to people-please a radio station, it was more like, 'This is how I feel.'"

  • Amber from Melbourne, Australiahahaha... you know whats funny...??

    if any of ya's actually listened to the words of the song you will discover that shes taking the piss out of people just like you.... people that are ridiculously judgemental for all the wrong reasons!

    so your comments just prove her right, lol.... good job being so pathetically predictable bahaha!

    Geri Halliwell... WHAT A LEGEND!!!!!
  • Mike from Santa Barbara, CaActually, I don't think it's a bad song. Great for clubs. The video, however, was heavily over-edited. It flashed through so many images so quickly, it gave me a headache.
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesSHould have been called "I Want Attention"
  • Alan from East Kilbride, ScotlandIn my opinion, this song is a rip-off of a song called "History Reapting" by Yell & Shirley Bassey.
  • Wolf Chinnery from Hemel Hempstead,,, EnglandAwful ,awful,awful. This exposed the sheer depth of Halliwells lack of talent,vocally and visually.Record sales have never been a reliable gauge of artistic integrity or talent.Remember,,,,Mr Blobby got to No1!!
  • Thomas from Borehamwood, EnglandThe video to look at me also saw Geri adopting four characters; a vamp, a bitch, a virgin bride and a Catholic sister. It was also shot in Prague.
