It’s an absolute travesty that this is the only Spice Girls song not to get to number one (I’m not counting that weird single thing off the Greatest Hits album). Because this is one of their best. If not the best. A toss up between this and ‘Say You’ll Be there’, I reckon.
I’ve got to be honest with you…I didn’t really like them when they arrived. I was 19 and hated everything and everyone and as such, was deep in a hole of self pity and loathing and the music therein. So ‘Wannabe’ wasn’t particularly high up on the list of my priorities back then.
What a time to be alive, though. Britpop was kicking off. Four Weddings had just come out. It was mental.
Not sure what all this ‘Horner’ business is. Halliwell all the way.
