The haters rolling in :tiffcackle_Tiffany_miss_ny_New_York_pollard_laugh_giggle_lol_haha_hehe:

I bet most of you are not from the UK or familiar with them, I bet if you watched interviews from them you'd fall in love with how funny, sweet and down to earth they are! Also their performances are incredible!

Of those three I only know "Wannabe," but it turns out that "Never Ever" was indeed a top 10 hit in the US.  I guess I was too young :gloss_mirror_young_little_girl_smile_child_makeup_lipstick_lipgloss_lips_pink:

I just listened to "Sweet Melody" and it's cute.  It's hard to compete with the global impact of "Wannabe" tho.

Girl no bashing Little Mix, I guarantee if you looked into them properly you'd love them :yasqueen_yes_wow_crying_praise_tears_wipe_sad:

Please respect them, they are sweet, down to earth girls who are insanely talented!

This isn't a thread to bash Spice Girls, LM are fans of them. Nobody is saying that Wannabe isn't iconic.

Sorry!  I didn't mean to shade!

I should give them more of a listen! I know a handful of songs because my boyfriend is a fan. I don't know why there seems to be such a wall between British girl groups and American markets. I'm not even sure why the Spice Girls were able to break through where others weren't. But there does feel like there is something distinctly British about them. Like there are certain Sugababes songs that I love but also understand why they never made an impact on American radio in spite of them being great.
