Old School Flashback: What’s Your Favorite Spice Girls Song?

Since the Spice Girls are reuniting once again tonight (Sunday) for the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony, I thought it was the perfect time to take a trip down memory lane. Speculation on their Olympic involvement hit high gear when Mel B aka Scary Spice let it slip the five girls would come together and perform at Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee earlier this summer.

Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, and Geri Halliwell better known as the Spice Girls are one of the most successful girl groups of all-time. In terms of sales, they definitely are. They’ve sold a whopping 75 million albums during their short time together. TLC comes in at second with 50 million under their belt. Besides The Beatles, they are arguably the second biggest British band export.

When they reunited in 2007, I was lucky enough watch the girls kick off their “Return of the Spice Girls” tour in Vancouver with fellow writer, Dan. The place was packed with teenage girls and adult gays. It was EPIC. We found ourselves singing to the top of our lungs and performing Spice Girls choreo thoughout the concert. The tween girls beside us marveled at our impeccable dance moves 😉 Curious to know what my favorite Spice Girls tracks are? Continue reading to find out my Top 10 Spice Girls Songs are.

My Rankings: Top 10 Best Spice Girl Songs

10. Goodbye
9. Spice Up Your Life
8. Mama
7. Wannabe
6. 2 Become 1
5. Who Do You Think You Are
4. Too Much
3. Say You’ll Be There
2. Holler
1. Stop

Obviously, “Stop” reigns supreme in my books. The video choreography alone propels it to No. 1. The second choice of “Holler” might surprise most of you, but those who know won’t be. I’m a R&B kid at heart and that Darkchild-produced track was definitely their most underrated song ever. As you can also see, their ballads also were a hit with me. Their accompanying slo-mo music videos for their slow jams were awesomely cheesy.

Now that you know what mine are, I’d love to hear your favorites. Post them below and share your favorite Spice Girls memory.

    Go right now and download Spice Girls – Tell Me Why (Thunderpuss Club Mix). This hidden gem is one of their best songs and their best mix for sure. It was huge in the clubs here.

    Thx for the trip down memory lane Dono. I bet the Girls wish they could do a fashion do-over when they see these videos. I like their current looks much much better. 🙂 Miss them!
