#5: Spice Up Your Life (1997)

Released as the lead single from their album Spiceworld in October 1997, “Spice Up Your Life” launched with a comprehensive global promotional campaign, featuring numerous television appearances and performances at prestigious award shows. Critically, the song garnered mixed reviews, with commentary focusing on its production and lyrical themes drawing both praise and criticism. Despite these varied reactions, “Spice Up Your Life” achieved significant commercial success. It debuted at the top of the UK Singles Chart, marking the Spice Girls’ fifth consecutive number one hit in their home country and later earning a double platinum certification from the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). The song also performed strongly across Europe and Oceania. However, in the United States, it charted lower than their previous releases, reaching number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100.

#4: Stop (1998)

“Stop,” originally conceived by Geri Halliwell during a hectic filming schedule for Spice World, was born from her dictaphone recordings and embraced a distinct Motown influence with its infectious chorus and literal dance routine inspired by the song’s lyrics. To capture its essence visually, the Spice Girls journeyed to Ireland, commandeering a street in Dublin’s Stoneybatter for the music video shoot. In a gesture of goodwill, they compensated residents of Carsaw Street with £100 each for the disruption and spent the afternoon signing autographs—a thoughtful touch appreciated by fans and locals alike. Released as the third single from their album by Virgin in March 1998, “Stop” peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, narrowly missing the top spot but ending the group’s streak of six consecutive number-one singles. Internationally, it achieved moderate success, entering the top 20 on multiple charts. In the United States, “Stop” reached number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking the Spice Girls’ sixth consecutive top-20 hit on the chart during their initial reign in the music industry.

#3: Wanna Be (1996)

“Wannabe,” the debut single by the Spice Girls released on 26 June 1996, quickly became an anthem for female empowerment. Co-written by the group with Matt Rowe and Richard “Biff” Stannard, and produced by Rowe and Stannard for their album Spice, the song features rapping by Mel B and Geri Halliwell. Initially mixed by Dave Way and then Mark “Spike” Stent, it topped charts in 22 countries, including seven weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart and four weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. “Wannabe” earned accolades like Best British-Written Single at the 1997 Ivor Novello Awards and became the best-selling single by a girl group, selling over 7 million copies worldwide by the end of 1997.

#2: Who Do You Think You Are (1997)

In February 1997, the Spice Girls kicked off the Brit Awards with a memorable performance of “Who Do You Think You Are,” featuring Geri Halliwell in her iconic Union Jack dress, which garnered front-page headlines and became a symbol of Cool Britannia. The song also served as the official single for the 1997 Comic Relief, with proceeds from the release benefiting charitable causes through a video featuring the Sugar Lumps—a humorous parody of the group.

“Who Do You Think You Are,” released as a double A-side with “Mama” in March 1997, achieved both commercial and critical acclaim. Melanie Chisholm’s vocals received praise from music critics, contributing to the song’s success as the Spice Girls’ fourth consecutive number-one single on the UK Singles Chart. This milestone made them the first act in UK chart history to achieve this feat. Additionally, the single was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) and performed strongly internationally, reaching the top ten in numerous European countries and New Zealand, as well as the top twenty in Australia, France, and Norway.

#1: Say You'll Be There (1996)

The Spice Girls’ hit single “Say You’ll Be There,” released to acclaim in October 1996, received a blend of reviews from music critics. Praised for its infectious catchiness by some and critiqued for its production by others, the song nonetheless achieved global commercial success, reaching the top ten in multiple international charts. It marked the group’s second number-one single in the United Kingdom and debuted impressively at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, later peaking at number three.

Recognized for its impact, the track earned double platinum certification from the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), platinum in New Zealand, and gold in five other countries. The music video, drawing inspiration from films like “Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” and “Pulp Fiction,” portrays the Spice Girls as techno-warriors employing martial arts and high-tech weapons, symbolizing female empowerment and solidarity. The video garnered positive acclaim and received nominations at prestigious awards ceremonies, including the 1996 Smash Hits Poll Winners Party, the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards, and the 1997 Brit Awards.
