Putting aside the Girl Power phenomenon–really, what were the chances five scantily-clad birds flashing their knickers with kung-fu kicks wouldn’t make it in the music industry?–the Spice Girls really do mean something: great singles. There’s not a dog in their whole back-catalogue. They kicked off their career with “Wannabe”, “Say You’ll Be There” and “2 Become 1″–that’s the pop equivalent of an Olympic gold in the triathlon. They’re all here on Spice, along with the live favourite “If You Can’t Dance”–one that Geri always looked particularly picked-upon whilst singing–and that irresistible champagne effervescence of pop history in the making. The only mistake they made at this point in their career was not releasing the slinky R&B track “Naked” as a single; and if that’s because the video plot automatically suggests itself as too obvious, it’s not as if that curtailed any other facet of their career. –Caitlin Moran
