SPICE GIRLS : WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE (Live at The Brits 1997)
So this isn’t really a video clip per se, BUT this Spice Girls performance eleven and a half years ago went down as one of the most talked about in the history of pOp music. ‘Girl Power’ hysteria had well and truly hypnotised the planet – even the host of the show Ben Elton was clearly excited in introducing them. And though we were all acutely aware that the Spice Girls weren’t the best singers live (perhaps bar Mel C), their performances and their pOp presence more than made up for it. This ‘live’ spot was the girls at their very, very best – cheeky, fun, colourful, stylish, cute and larger than life – not to mention Geri’s Union Jack dress which etched itself into pOp folklore with one swift sub-five minute appearance. This Brit Awards 1997 clip encapsulates what all good pOp music should be about – pretenders need only study this to see just how totally and utterly brilliant Simon Fuller and his whole Spice phenomenon were.
