"We recorded ''Say You'll Be There'' in our trackies and socks. It was a cool vibe, dead laid-back. A lot of sentiment in the song is to do with what we've been through together. We've always been there for each other, so we wrote about that." - Melanie C
''None of them played instruments, so I was left to do the music and get that vibe together. What I said to them was, 'Look, I've got a chorus, check this out.' And I'd sing them the chorus and the melody and straight away five pads and pencils came out and they were throwing lines at us. Ten minutes later, the song was written. It was a real quick process. They were confident in what they were doing, throwing it out there.'' - Eliot Kennedy (songwriter)
''It's about relationships, whether friendship or romantic, and to be there for each other. You don't have to give them all the 'I love you' bit, because what's important is if you're there for each other." - Mel B
