Listening back to some of their hits today, the tunes themselves are actually a bit shit aren’t they?
They are no b*witched
truly, truly, awful shite
its just good pop music, what’s wrong with you.
I’m getting so old that the reunion in 2012 feels current so I was surprised that they were doing another one.
Go to 2:28 in this:
There’s a harmonica solo! What the fuck is that doing there? Did nobody at the record label listen that far in?
Viva Forever is great though
say You’ll be there is a genuine tune I think - love the Stevie wonder style harmonica solo
Girls Aloud had far more decent songs though
now there’s a reunion i could get behind
Far more decent songs than pretty much any band ever.
so I says to Geri, if you want to leave, fook off, do one
Mama makes me cry every time
It always used to remind me of the music in one of the zones of Sonic 2
I can’t think of a better debut single than Wannabe. They’ve got a fair few other decent tunes (Say You’ll Be There, Viva Forever, Stop, 2 Become 1) but they never ever got anywhere close to Wannabe.
Liking the Spice Girls: massively Tory
2 Become 1 is pretty much perfect as Christmas Number Ones go (save for the ones explicitly about Christmas)
Spice up your life is good
Fucking love ‘2 Become 1’. ‘Viva Forever’ and ‘Spice up Your Life’ are pretty good too.
