Four unreleased Spice Girls tracks were leaked on Soundcloud this afternoon, then quickly removed. In a doubly-cruel twist of fate, they songs were recorded after Ginger Spice left the group, which—as all true Spice Girls fans know—is when the band got a little lame.

Vulture speculates that at least one of the tracks, an R&B version of "Right Back at Ya," was recorded for the 2000 album Forever, and that it was quite catchy. The other previously unreleased songs are titled "Pain Proof," "A Day in Your Life," and "If It's Lovin' on Your Mind."

Flavorwire got a chance to listen to the songs and reports that the lyrics dwelled on motivational topics, including:

"treasure[ing] every day of your life," "liv[ing] beyond your limitations, yeah," and how "sticks and stones may break our bones, but baby, names don't hurt."

Netflix also suffered a leak, accidentally releasing House of Cards Season 3 several weeks ahead of schedule. The episodes weren't supposed to be released until February 27.

No one got to watch very much before Netflix yanked the episodes back offline, but apparently Episode 1 starts with a presidential motorcade.
