Top 5ive: Spice Girls


You told us what you want, what you really really want! So we are giving you what you want, what you really really want. You really wanted to walk down memory lane with a Top 5ive of the girl group that brought girl power—Spice Girls. Fun fact: The girls wrote the majority of their songs. Here’s the Top 5ive countdown of Spice Girls:

5. 2 become 1

It’s the Spice Girl’s sex song. It’s a song about getting laid….and using protection. I bet you didn’t realize that until now. It’s the sexiest yet cleanest song about sex ever. The music video was also pretty cool. The girls singing and moving slowly as the fast pace world moves around them. See the metaphor yet? I know, that was deep for 1996.


4. Goodbye

Yes, it’s a song after Ginger Spice left. And yes, it’s an amazing song. The vocals on the song are killer. It was their “goodbye” to the fellow spice. The lyrics tug on your heart-strings as they sing “no, no, no, no” beautiful as the hook. The music video is beautiful as well. “Goodbye” is the breakup anthem of the late 90s for friendships and relationships.


3. Spice Up Your Life

It’s the unofficial anthem of the Spice Girls. It’s just one of those feel good songs that you just get up and dance to and chant with it like you are in a cult. No one is really sure what the words mean nor what the words are, but you just can’t help but sing a lot. It’s also the unofficial theme song of their blockbuster movie “Spiceworld.”


2. Wannabe

The song is iconic. It’s the first single they ever released. It took the world by storm and had them wondering what does it mean to “ziga ziga ah.” According to UrbanDictionary, the term “ziga ziga ah” means things of sexual nature….let’s just pretend we never found that out. Anyways, it’s the song that everyone knows and everyone sings along to. It’s pretty much everyone’s jam.


1. Viva Forever

This is the song that showed a more serious side of the Spice Girls. While the music video sucked, the song is the signature song on the group. It’s so signature that they used it as the title of the musical based off of their music. It was also the last single to have Geri Halliwell, better known as Ginger Spice, before her departure in the Spring of 1998. It’s very fitting for that as well because of the song’s theme of Friendship.
