The Spice Girls at 25: Here’s the story from A to Z
Released 25 years ago, on 8 July 1996, Wannabe spent seven weeks at number one in the UK and four in the US. In the process, it made five unknown girls – Victoria Caroline Adams, Melanie Janine Brown, Emma Lee Bunton, Melanie Jayne Chisholm and Geraldine Estelle Halliwell – global superstars.
So here’s a story from A to Z of how the band started, rose to fame, fell apart and put themselves back together again. Because which member of our LGBT+ Community does not love the Spice Girls?!?
Z is for Zig-A-Zig-Ah
It’s all Mel B really, really wants to do… but what does it mean?
Well, if you listen to the words of Wannabe, the point is that you’ll only ever find out if you’re admitted to the Spice Girls’ inner circle. Prove your friendship, the song says, and maybe we’ll share our secrets.
Mel C confirmed as much in an interview with Billboard. “You know when you’re in a gang and you’re having a laugh and you make up silly words?” she said. “Well, we were having a giggle and we made up this silly word, zig-a-zig-ah. And we were in the studio and it all came together in this song.”
