Return to Spice World

Following on from this post two days ago, I fired up the old YouTube to see if the original music video for Wannabe passes the nostalgia test.

Good holy god it goddamn doesn’t. The Spice Girls look like utter skanks. I keep expecting one of their chav boyfriends to wander into frame and punch one of the waiters. I’m astounded that I was ever attracted to them. The only one I still dig today is Scary Spice, but she was my favourite back in the day as well.

I acknowledge that I’m being rather classist and even somewhat sexist in my feelings. I can’t help my visceral reaction. But it’s a sad day when you discover you were actually pretty dumb as a kid.
