Geri Halliwell: Lift Me Up

Lift Me Up was the third single taken from Geri's debut solo album "Shizophonic". It was released November 1st, 1999 and debuted in the number 1 slot on the UK charts beating out fellow Spice Girl Emma Bunton who released her first single What I Am (a collaboration with Tin Tin Out) that same week and came in at number 2 in the charts.
When Geri found out that Emma was releasing her single at the same time as her, she tried to back out in order to release it on another date but it was too close to the release date to do so. Wanting to get her song to the number 1 spot, Geri did a whirlwind of promotion and achieved her goal.
The video, which was directed by Howard Greenhalgh, was shot in Malaga, Spain and features Geri tooling around the desert with a group of aliens. Very cute idea.
