I’m still thinking about the Spice Girls reunion for the closing ceremony of this summer’s Olympics in London & how happy it made me to see the original female fab five together on stage. Although the performance, standing atop those cars, was a little lack lustre for audiences watching on the tele, I thought that the ladies, now in their mid-to-late 30s, looked better than ever. However, I wouldn’t dream of wishing for them to reunite for a full-on album/tour since my favorite, Victoria Beckham, a.k.a. Posh Spice, has been doing so much these days as a full-time fashion designer. Every now & again I find myself glued to the tube watching the movie, Spice World, since every time, it feels like the gals have joined me in my room for a sleepover full of gossip & girly guilty pleasures.
Anyway, I thought I’d invite my readers to go back to the 90s with me & watch what I think are their top 5 most stylish music videos. Of course, you have to take into context the decade in which these videos were made. Neon pleather, midriff tops, high-heeled sneakers, & other bubble gum pop trends were in full swing, thanks to Posh, Ginger, Scary, Baby, & Sporty. I’ve included the videos for “Too Much (my favorite!!!), “Say You’ll Be There,” “2 Become 1,” “Who Do You Think You Are?,” & “Spice Up Your Life.” Of course I’m leaving out obvious favorites, including “Wannabe” & “Stop,” but we have only five to post here today. Also, I’m fond of “Goodbye,” although that signifies the end of a pop music era with the ladies who officially became a quartet just days before hitting the stage for a concert on Long Island in 1998. Who is your favorite spice? What’s your favorite song? Do you want the girls to get back together? Happy Styling!
