Description

Say You’ll Be There” is a song by English girl group the Spice Girls . It was co-written by the Spice Girls with Jonathan Buck and Eliot Kennedy. Production duo Absolute incorporated a mix of pop and R&B into the song, which includes a harmonica solo, played by Judd Lander. The lyrics—which describe the things the group went through together and how they were always there for each other—received mixed reviews from critics, who described them as “confusing” and felt that the R&B-infused production was a “bid for street cred”.

The music video was inspired by the films Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965) and Pulp Fiction (1994), and features the group as a band of female techno-warriors, who use martial arts and high-tech ninja-influenced weapons to capture a hapless male. It includes symbols of male disempowerment, and serves as an example of solidarity and the group’s bonding. It received positive reactions from fans and was nominated for numerous awards including the 1996 Smash Hits! Awards, the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards, and the 1997 Brit Awards.

Released as the album’s second single on 14 October 1996, it became their second number-one single in the United Kingdom, and was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). It was a commercial success across Europe, reaching the top 10 in most of the charts that it entered. As a result of its popularity, the song was released in 1997 in Australia, receiving a gold certification by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA), and in North America, entering the top five in both Canada and the United States. In January 1999, the music video was ranked number eight in VH1‘s “All-Time Greatest Music Videos in History”.

Lyrics
Say you’ll be there
I’m, giving you everything
All that joy can bring, this I swear
Last time, that we had this conversation
I decided we should be friends, hey
But now, we’re going ’round in circles
Tell me will this deja vu never end, oh
Now you tell me that you’ve fallen in love
Well I never ever thought that would be, eh
This time, you gotta take it easy
Throwing far too much emotions at me
But any fool can see they’re falling
I gotta make you understand
I’m, giving you everything
All that joy can bring, this I swear
I give you everything
And, all that I want from you
Is the promise you, will be there
Say you will be there, yeah
Oow, say you will be there
Won’t you sing it with me?
If you, put two and two together
You will see what our friendship is for, oh
If you, can’t work this equation
Then I guess I’ll have to show you the door
There is no need to say you love me
It would be better left unsaid
I’m (I’m)
Giving you everything (I give you everything)
All that joy can bring (all that joy can bring)
This I swear (yes I swear)
And (and)
All that I want from you (all I want from you)
Is the promise you (is the promise you)
Will be there
Yeah, I want you
Any fool can see they’re falling
I gotta make you understand
I’ll give you everything on this I swear
Just promise you’ll always be there
I’m, giving you everything (I’m giving you everything)
All that joy can bring (all that joy can bring)
This I swear (yes I swear)
And, all that I want from you (all that I want from you)
Is the promise you (want you to promise too)
Will be there (always be there)
I’m, giving you everything (I’m giving you everything)
All that joy can bring (all that joy can bring)
This I swear (yes I swear)
And, all that I want from you (all that I want from you)
Is the promise you (want you to promise too)
Will be there (always be there)
I’m, giving you everything (I’m giving you everything)
All that joy can bring (all that joy can bring)
This I swear (yes I swear)
And, all that I want from you (all that I want from you)
Is the promise you (want you to promise too)
Will be there (always be there)
