  • Lyrics
  • This was the second of the Spice Girls' three consecutive #1 British Christmas singles.
  • When this song reached #1 in the UK, it made the Spice Girls the first (and only female) artists to have their first six singles all reach #1 in Britain. It also made the Spice Girls the only female group to have the most consecutive #1 singles in Britain.
  • This song opens the Spice Girls' 1997 film Spice World. In the very first scene, they sing this song on Top Of The Pops for a huge number of fans, photographers and media of all sorts.
  • Throughout the entire video, the members never appear together in a scene. They all live certain fantasies: Geri Halliwell is a sultry lounge singer; Victoria Beckham is a bond girl; Emma Bunton lives through a scene from the Steven Spielberg movie Poltergeist; Melanie Chisholm is a street fighter; and Melanie Brown is a combat warrior. The video contains some references to movies. Bits and pieces of scenes from their film Spice World are featured, and the aforementioned scenes with Bunton and the reference to Poltergeist. >>

  • Shawn from Green Bay, WiThe Spice Girls' best song, it has that lyrical ambiguity that most great songs have and features probably their best vocals. Though all the girls get turns at verses, it is their first hit to largely feature Mel C, with Emma getting the strongest part of the chorus. Perhaps due to being featured, Mel C often took to dropping her "Sporty" image during live performances of this song for a more womanly appearance.
