This is just the most excellent awesome-est news ever:
Ten years after Wannabe, the Spice Girls are doing a reunion tour.
I can't tell you how thrilled I am; I've already registered for tickets for their Sydney concert on January 17, 2008. Does that make me kinda sad? Screw it; I don't care. The Spice Girls rock! (Well, maybe not "rock". Maybe "pop". Anyway, their songs make me happy and make me want to dance. Yay for that!)
The Spice Girls represented many things to me as a 16-year-old - a sense of fun and playfulness, a love of giant shoes, but mostly the sense that you didn't have to be face-and-figure perfect to have a good time. And they were British, so even though they were "manufactured" (I'm sorry, but what band isn't, to some degree?), they had their own style. Remember, they were named Sporty, Posh, Ginger, Baby and Scary - based on the images they'd already developed.
Spice up your life!
