Low Quality first performance of Half Of Me from Geri's teaser gig at the Beresford in Sydney.

This is ahead of her official 'first' performance on October 3rd where Geri will headline the NRL Grand Final on Channel Nine.


Thoughts!?

Official video if anyone is interested

I was curious about this due to her solo success originally but it's nothing special. I don't really think there's a market for her now with the charts being as they are.

omg, there are no words to describe how bad that video is, but i will endeavour to try. horrendous, cheesy, cliché and cheap all immediately spring to mind. the song itself isn't that bad, but the visuals are very poorly executed. the cut price miley dancing bears rip off is unimaginative, as is the sign language which she did during her "lift me up" promotion over a decade ago.

she's getting a lot of bad press for this video and unfortunately for her, its well deserved. i appreciate she's doing this new music for her fans and she doesn't really have a substantial budget, but this is embarrassing on every conceivable level.

I actually like the song. its very simple but that's what I like about it. Although to be honest, after songs like Look At Me, Scream if you wanna go faster, bag it up etc, I was expecting a better song from her

Filling a video with gay couples only works when Kylie does it. Geri just looks desperate.

That's part of the reason I checked it out in the first place. Some of her early solo stuff was quite good and certainly quite catchy. This one is just a bit bland really.

And surprising the new single flops in Australia, selling just 393 copies and reaching dizzy heights of #281 on the official chart

Not very good for somebody who once sold 12 million records 😉

I feel bad for her. I am not going to laugh about someone failing to do well in the charts. She must feel bad, to go from getting a number one in the UK, back in 1999 to not charting in 2013 on the official chart.

Obviously Australians aren't bothered by the title.

I'm not surprised the single didn't do well though, it reminded me of a song Katy Brand would do spoofing another artist, and then the video just added to that image, for me anyway

The song was the absolute pits and no one is checking for her anymore.

I sympathise in a way, but if it hadn't been for her staff banging on about what a megastar she was/is then I wouldn't even be bothered

Its not on ITunes or Spotify,

Charts dont mean much anymore, Madonna has not had a Top 10 hit since 2009.

I'm sure it would have been on iTunes in Australia where the chart position and sales are from

There's a difference between not having a top ten hit in four years than your hyped comeback single reaching in the lower 200s in a country where you have been on prime time, highly rated television show week in week out
