We all love the Spice Girls for teaching us how to sass, while running in platforms, while looking amazing. Their music was the soundtrack to our childhoods, and not a day goes by that we don’t wish they’d just get back together and make sweet, sweet music once more.
But just how sweet was their music? Well, according to a new report, apparently it was actually all a bit saucy!
The Daily Star claims they spoke to an insider who helped write the song, and they’ve revealed some cheeky secrets about parts of the song. While we’ve grown up and realised that most of it is utter filth, we didn’t notice this bit.
You know when Mel B is going through all the girls one by one, introducing them? They reckon that she’s actually talking about what they prefer in the bedroom.
So here’s a story from A to Z, you wanna get with me you gotta listen carefully, We got Em in the place who likes it in your face, we got G like MC who likes it on an… Easy V doesn’t come for free, she’s a real lady, and as for me, ha you’ll see
AS WELL AS THIS, the insider thinks that the fourth line is actually talking about doing it while on ecstasy.
We got G (Geri) like MC (Mel C) who likes it on an…
Although Mel B doesn’t say the word E, the next line cleverly starts with that very letter. SAY WHAT?!
As well as this, the seemingly nonsensical line “Zig-a-zig-ah”, apparently comes as a bit of a dig at someone they shared their studio space with. The insider explains:
Most of our studio neighbours were way cooler than us, we had Orbital and Chemical Brothers next door. But there was this one 80s pop dude who hated us for encroaching what he considered ‘his turf’ which was boy bands and girl bands.
This guy had this nasty habit of taking a dump in the shared khazi while smoking a cigar, so we took to referring to him as ‘S**t and Cigars’.
During the recording this phrase was thrown around a lot and must have worked its way into Mel B’s subconscious who pretty much wrote all the lyrics. She may have considered ‘S*** and Cigar’ for a minute – but eventually settled on ‘Zig-a-zig-ah’ instead.
So there you have it. Convinced? We’re not sure.
