I don't think I'll ever get bored of that performance. :love: Not included in that video, but the opening bars of Wannabe / the crowd roaring in appreciation... it gives me chills every single time I watch it!!


Same here Jay. The thrill of them all arriving will never get old. I still think that the lead up, the actual performance and then the afterglow (the week after) was one of the most exciting times in Spiceworld. The way the momentum built and then the realisation it was actually happening was incredible!

I don't understand why a performance like that has "only" 11 millions views (and most of their music video too). :rolleyes:

To be fair, it`s posted on the official Olympics channel. And this video is the second most viewed from them. Only beaten by Usain Bolt winning! :laugh:

They looked great and Wannabe was amazing but the Spice Up Your Life part ruined it for me. The "Spice up your life, spice up your life, spice up your life" bit was absolutely messy and out of control, they sounded atrocious and incredibly annoying and embarrassing.

Mel B looked amazing, probably the best she had looked in a long time.

This performance made me actually like Spice Up Your Life. Never was a big fan of it until the Olympics.
Love the studio version! :love:

How comes?! I always thought of it as their signature song with all the spiciness in the lyrics! So much better than 'Wannabe'!

It's never been a favourite of mine, either, probably mainly because there aren't any proper solo lines. It always sounds great live, though.

Five years have gone by in a flash. They really looked great here and people were so appreciative of their momentary comeback. They could have had a really successful second reunion off the back of that performance if Designer Spice hadn't put the kibosh on it. Oh well...

Dunno, was just never a big fan of it. There is a few of their songs I was never really a fan of.
Wannabe, WDYTYA, Spice Up Your Life, Stop, Too Much. I do listen to them sometimes though. Mostly because I like listen to the group in general.

I'd just swap WDYTYA with Mama and remove SUYL and would sign under this with my both hands! However SUYL is something else!
