OMG I just found this hilarious interview with the girls from '97 with a UK interviewer, where the girls literally start smacking eachother thanks to instigator... Emma?
Victoria is genius.
Interviewer: "I can't seem to be able to turn on the t.v...."
It took me until just now to see it, but Emma's hair kinda makes her look like a bunny rabbit.
I love this song, I love the retro feel, I love the choreography, I love the outfits. It's my favorite song off the Spice World album (of the upbeat tracks anyway) and I really wished it would have been a single but sadly it didn't make it.
We've got one more song to go in these postings.
"The light that burns twice as bright, burns half as long and you have burned so very very brightly." How true was that for our Girls? I love these coats that they are wearing. I dream of one day owning a coat like Geri's...and I'm okay with that.
Join a conga line and Spice Up Your Life. I find it hilarious that Melanie C just flat out tells Geri to shut up. Tragic foreshadowing? I don't think so but you decide.
Geez, the Netherlands television production team seem to be O.D-ing on the screen projections aren't they? I can barely see the girls through all the "wanna"'s flying at me. Oh well, good times nonetheless.
"I think she might be dead." Too cute.
Yah Baby! The two Mel's rock out on this cover of the Aretha Franklin/Eurythmics duet Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves. Definitely one of the best moments in the show.
Okay I had to choose another subscriber for the video of this song, hence why the video is a bit elongated. This is my favorite song from the Spice album and the other video had screwed up sound quality which I found unexceptable lol. So here we go.
I wish I knew why Melanie C yells out licorice...but I don't.
The second Act of the Spice World show began with the Girls performing the broadway-esque, big band Lady Is A Vamp. Mel B is very hot in her nearly nude body suit. Plus, you gotta love Geri's dress. Tassles are always a good thing.
Anytime I get to watch the Girls perform this song, it's always a joy and a half. I love how they just strip naked one of the Spice boys.
If I remember correctly, this is where the Girls took a half hour intermission during the show on this tour. Finishing Act 1 with a bang.
Emma is left on her own to perform Where Did Our Love Go by Diana Ross and The Supremes, and invites on stage a young boy who looks as if he has just been kidnapped. Awwwwkkkkwwwaaarrdddd.
The Girls introduce the Spice Boys by name and for some reason I just realized how odd Victoria's singing voice is. Why that fact never entered my mind before I have no idea. I mean I think she has a lovely voice but it's so unusual.
Okay, I know I've posted this song before but I'm doing so again because the other one has been removed from youtube and it's important to have a video in which Geri is wearing rollerskates. Upon closer inspection, Victoria's spiceboy is pretty goodlookin' as well.
Hope you guys are enjoying these posts.
Swing it, shake it, move it, make it, God I love this song. Who didn't perfect this dance routine in their bedrooms while dreaming of a better life than the ones they had. MMMMMMMaybe not so much the latter part. Hotness!
The doors open and there are our five girls. It sort of shows in Geri's face that she is maybe not that into it or maybe she is just having a bad day with a lot of things on her mind.
No matter, it's nice to see her doing her spanish solo, especially since when I saw them in Toronto on this tour she had already left and it was just her voice. I guess none of the other girls wanted to learn spanish in order to do it.
You've been so good to this young man by supporting his little website that he started purely out of fun and excitment for a group that he loves...why the hell am I writing in third person like I've died? Okay, I wanted to do something special since I have been so horrible at maintaining this page in the past couple of months. I've found an entire show that the Spice Girls did on their first world tour (before Geri left the group) from Arnhem, and I am going to post the entire thing. I won't get it all posted today but I'll probably have it all up by tomorrow evening.
Here is the introduction screen projection of their spaceship landing on our dark and dreary world where they plan to take over and brighten up our lives (as they did).
Here is the brand spankin' new video from our darling Melanie C. It's basically a tribute to her Canadian tour and show's live coverage of her various performances and appearances at certain events (the MMVA's and such). While the rest of it is her on the Subway in Toronto fawning over some random stranger, showcasing the storyline of the song. Like ya do.
