It was moderately successful internationally, peaking inside the top 20 on the majority of the charts that it entered. In the United States, "Too Much" fared better than its predecessor, " Spice Up Your Life ", peaking at number nine on the Billboard Hot and becoming the group's fourth and final top single on the chart.
In Junethe group began filming scenes for their film Spice World. Simultaneously, Virgin Records started the first marketing meetings for the Spiceworld album's promotional campaign, set to be released in November. The concept of "Too Much" was mainly penned by Geri Halliwell while the group was filming Spiceworld in a closed set besieged by fans and the media, in London's Docklands.
The other members then helped to complete the song. Halliwell, inspired by a T-shirt that said "What part of no don't you understand? You got that? So we constructed this backing track and then more of the girls started to come in—this was quite a good day—and gradually they started to add on their little bits. Absolute structured the song using doo-wop records as a template.
The format was for Emma Bunton to sing the high part, Melanie BrownVictoria Beckhamand Halliwell singing the lower and middle parts, and Chisholm adding the ad-libs. Wilson and Watkins doggedly worked on it with whichever of the Too Much - Spice Girls - SpiceWorld (CD members were available from the filming set at any given point. A considerable amount of production work was required afterward before the track reached its final form.
The song is constructed in a verse-chorus formwith a bridge before the third chorus,  and its instrumentation consists of a guitar, brass and string instruments. After the chorus, the same pattern occurs leading to the second chorus, with Halliwell, Beckham, and Chisholm singing the second verse. The group sing the chorus twice, and repeats the ad-lib as the song fades out. The second version, released on a standard CD single, contained the radio edit, an orchestral version, and "Walk of Life", a different B-side, written by the group with Absolute.
Sylvia Patterson of NME characterised the song as a "lavish, harmonised spree of New Orleans loveliness with strings and Spanish guitar ", adding that it is "the absolute tops! In a review of Spiceworldthe Contra Costa Times said that the album's ballads such as "Too Much" and " Viva Forever " are "both treacly and deadly dull".
Considine of The Baltimore Sun was not convinced by the song's "attempts at deep emotional expression",  and Anthony Violenti of The Buffalo News said that it is "supposed to be a heart tugging ballad that may even make the Spice Girls fan base of year olds overdose on sugar". In New Zealand, it debuted on 21 December at number 20, peaked at number nine for two weeks, and stayed on the chart for 12 weeks, Too Much - Spice Girls - SpiceWorld (CD.

It sounds gorgeous and looks even better. High quality sound, highest quality graphics! Literally cannot believe how good this looks. The Spice Girls, those glitter-besotted pottymouth disciples of mayhem, continued their history-making bubblegum crusade against the decadent relics of grunge on this, the second of two albums that would kick in a new pop era of bouncy, glowing optimism and divinely frivolous tunes.
But none who came after could reach the fever-pitch exhilaration they managed on song after song. The floor-stomping "Never Give Up On the Good Times" represents a pinnacle of energy, even on this disc of flushed-cheek dance tunes-- this disco anthem shakes and shimmys in ecstatic release, the explosion of positve energy that is the Spice Girls' trademark.
And on and on and on. Yes, and then there's the closing number, "Lady is a Vamp" where the Spice Girls salute their culture-heroes in a rousing, comic piece of burlesque. Whether as solo artists or a group, we'll certainly continue to enjoy the show.
As writers and performers, the Spice Girls achieved new heights of energetic bliss, and "Spiceworld" remains a must for all who would know how great pop can be.
