Posted on 08/18/2006 8:54:43 AM PDT by Millee
The Spice Girls have been voted the band most people would like to see get back together.
Even though it's been a decade since they burst onto the music scene with the undeniably catchy Wannabe and their Girl Power slogan, the five-some took 17% of the vote in the Yahoo poll.
They beat legendary music acts such as The Jam and the Stone Roses to take the top spot.
Rock legends Led Zeppelin took second place and The Police came in third.
"The Spice Girls' music, like it or loathe it, has that amazing ability to transport the listener straight back to their heyday," said Gareth Bellamy, Editor of Yahoo! Music UK.
And voters might just get their wish.
The girls - Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown - are rumoured to be planning a comeback.
and.... people want to do that? Willingly?
And what a heyday it was...
When they hit the States my daughter and her friends got their first blast of Girl Power.
NOTE: There are other bands listed besides the Spice Girls
Spice Girls outpolled Led Zeppelin? Only in the UK...
Posh Spice is UK royalty, having married David Beckham.
For that, it is more about nostalgia than ever liking or disliking a song. You just remember what you were doing when you heard it.
Modern radio exists on this notion and formats by era of hits rather than genre.
I can think of a lot of bands that should reunite for a tour, but the Spice Girls would NEVER be on that list.
I think it's all a publicity stunt...
"The girls - Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown - are rumoured to be planning a comeback."
Obviously Yahoo music UK is populated by too many BOZOS.
The guy on the right looks like he's got a turd on his head. Which one is Ricky Martin?
Perhaps someone is thinking it's be easier to wipe them out in 1 fell swoop then individually...
How the hell can a group that was only a big deal for about a year have a "comeback"?
The groups that could have a comeback are the ones that made music that people still listen to like the Beatles (obviously they couldn't do it), Led Zep, Pink Floyd, etc. The Spice Girls were a gimmick, nothing more.
" The Spice Girls were a gimmick, nothing more "
Tell us what you think, what you really, really think. ;o)
T&A is more important than the music it appears.
rat pack (whoops theyre dead)
Spice Girls are not a band. It's a act.
