Listening back to some of their hits today, the tunes themselves are actually a bit shit aren’t they?

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.

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)

Fucking love ‘2 Become 1’. ‘Viva Forever’ and ‘Spice up Your Life’ are pretty good too.
