Spice Girls

Wow... Speaking of reuniting bands at the bottom of my blog, I must have to mention that Spice Girls are returning to the stage.

Good lord. They really must need some cash.

Alright, teenage girls circa 1990s perhaps had some slight fanatacism with the band. I must admit, even though now I am not drawn to pop music, I was into the Spice Girls. I used to dance to their songs off of their CD Spice. Songs like "Wannabe," "Say You'll Be There," or "Who Do You Think You Are" made us dance. Songs like "2 Become 1" (which is extremely sexually explicit for young adolescent girls) made us sing slow and dramatic.

But can they come back? Do they really still have a fan base? They say they're coming back for the fans, but is this a good idea?

Put it this way: if you sold mega records to a specific crowd, ten years have passed, and you want some cash, would you sell out to earn back some more money? I think many people would. I think many people understand where Posh, Baby, Scary, Sporty, and Ginger Spice are coming from.

Now crazy Halloween costumes can return.

So, bad or good idea?

Haha. My friends always fought to be Baby Spice. I think I ended up being Sporty. One of my friends was really good at being Scary Spice--she had her hair all wacked out like she did. She even had that "scary" personality that basically took over the whole show.

I was just singing "2 Become 1" yesterday to my brother, and he was making fun of me that I still knew the words. Don't you think it's a dirty song for 14 year olds? Or am I just becoming an old woman?
