One day, two threads! Appropriate for a Double A Side, I think. 'Who Do You Think You Are' was the other half of the Spice Girls' fourth single, alongside 'Mama'.
Discussion points: the videos (do you prefer the normal version or the Comic Relief version featuring the Sugar Lumps? ), the artwork, the lyrics, performances, its success, THAT Brit Awards performance, etc. Discuss anything to do with 'Who Do You Think You Are'!
What I wrote about 'Who Do You Think You Are' in the Spice Rate from 2014:
Starting off the Top 10 results is 'Who Do You Think You Are' by the Spice Girls. This was one half of a double a side single with 'Mama', and was released as the fourth and final single from 'Spice'. While 'Mama' catered as a perfect gift for Mother's Day in 1997, the disco pop song 'Who Do You Think You Are' was that year's Comic Relief song. The single is certified platinum, and is one of the best selling charity singles in UK chart history.
This was a record breaking release for the girls - it made them the first act in UK chart history to see their first four singles enter at #1. They'd later extend this to five and six, with 'Spice Up Your Life' and 'Too Much'. They held the record until 2000, when Westlife saw their seventh single become their 7th #1 in the UK.
'Who Do You Think You Are'/'Mama' was also a #1 single in Ireland, and a Top 10 hit in the Netherlands, Germany, New Zealand, Switzerland and Belgium. It didn't get a US release, as the Spice Girls followed up '2 Become 1' with 'Spice Up Your Life'.
The Brits performance of 'Who Do You Think You Are' is without a doubt the Spice Girls' most definitive performance of the 1990s, in part helped along by Geri's outfit - the iconic Union Jack dress, one of the most recognisable dresses in history and a symbol of Cool Britannia.
'Who Do You Think You Are' has two music video versions - one being the amazing comedy version for Comic Relief, featuring spoof band Sugar Lumps. Sugar Lumps members included female comediennes Kathy Burke, Llewella Gideon, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders & singer Lulu, who dressed up as Sporty, Scary, Posh, Ginger and Baby respectively!
