There’s no question that the Spice Girls were kind of cheesy and ridiculous, with their platform boots and zig-ga-zig-gah. But underneath all of that, there is a girl group who, for two short years, became absolutely massive pop icons. They sold 55 million albums worldwide with two albums; some would be lucky to see that in their entire 20-year span career. How’d they do it? Sure the image helped, but it was the music they were buying before all of the crap they schlepped across the world.
Now that the Spice Girls are pretty much accepted as pop culture treasures (their heralded appearance at the 2012 Olympics set it in stone), why not take a look back at the singles that made them pop superstars? Can you guess which song is #1?
