Ten things we love about Spice Girls' Wannabe 20 years on
It’s been exactly 20 years since the Spice Girls released their debut song Wannabe – and we still love it just as much today.
To mark the milestone, here’s 10 things we love about the video that make us keep on re-watching:
- The awkward dancing in the middle of the street, followed by several members of the band patting a homeless man on the head.
- Mel B’s bra-free neon green crop top. The style of it all.
- Baby Spice’s pigtails. She was #hairgoals back in the nineties.
- “Zig-a-zig-ah” - need we say more?
- Sporty Spice’s bra top and tracksuit bottoms combo.
- Posh’s awkward dancing and how she just lurks in the background for the majority of the video.
- “If you wanna be my lover, you’ve gotta get with my friends” – the lyric women have used countless times during arguments with their other half.
- Mel B’s random rap segment.
- “Slam ya body down and wind it all around!”
- At the start and the end you can definitely hear Posh say “oh f*ck”.
