Yeah, the main version is definitely best as a single release.
But it´s a nice alternative. And I love that it sounds so raw and with some different vocal takes.

Did Wannabe chart in the UK last week at all? I know the Greatest Hits sold a few copies, but I was just wondering if there was any impact as a few people downloaded Wannabe and streamed it.. I noticed the total Spotify plays had jumped up after the 20th celebration so was hoping it would show up on the charts somewhere!

It didn't show up in the UK midweeks (Top 200) so it's highly unlikely to have re-entered, unfortunately. :(

20 years ago (Sunday 21st July 1996), Wannabe climbed to #1 in the UK. :D

20 years ago today on October 28th 1996 'Wannabe' topped the Australian singles chart!!

It was #1 for 11 consecutive weeks until January 12th, 1997! It was also the longest reigning #1 by a British act during the entire 1990s decade and STILL remains the 2nd longest reign at #1 by a British act, only behind The Beatles - Hey Jude which spent 13 weeks at #1 :D

Wow! I didn't realise that Wannabe was a hit relatively late in Australia. Great achievement!

Somehow a year has gone by since the 20th celebrations. :dizzy: It's now 21 years since the release of Wannabe. Sadly still no sign of a reunion despite our hopes being raised this time last year.



Victoria has acknowledged the anniversary here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BWPiCXzFQHz ... riabeckham

An 80s inspired remix from "Initial Talk Music/Mash-up/Remix 1" on YouTube, incorporating Bobby Brown's Every Little Step. Quite cool! Thanks Maurice for linking it to me. :p
