Former Spice Girl turned solo singer and musical actress Melanie C picks the 'Tracks Of My Years' and her final two choices includes a double A sided song by Wham that, on its release in 1984, was overshadowed by it's more popular festive favourite. There's also Whitney Houston's emotive cover of a George Benson power ballad that has become one of her most successful recordings. As well as the love song dedications, there's another track from the Album of the Week and the Friday round of PopMaster. Melanie is currently playing Mary Magdelene in the UK Arena Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock opera 'Jesus Christ Superstar'.
