Dating and spice of life

Rated 4.87/5 based on 834 customer reviews

A session with the production and songwriting duo Richard Stannard and Matt Rowe was booked to record the group's next single.

During the recording of the Spiceworld tracks, the group was so busy with the filming schedule that the quality of their contributions became more erratic and piecemeal.

Released as the album's lead single in October 1997, it topped the UK Singles Chart on 19 October 1997 for one week, becoming the group's fifth consecutive chart-topper.

Brown commented that for this reason the final mix sounds "spontaneous and full of energy".

The session was interrupted constantly, with people entering the building, phoning them, or throwing things through the window.

Eventually, when the filming crew left the room, the group managed to finish the song.

The lyrics are inspired by Bollywood films and reflects the group desire to "write a song for the world".

The music video, directed by Marcus Nispel, features the Spice Girls in a futuristic setting, inspired by the 1982 film Blade Runner, controlling every aspect of society in a dark futuristic cityscape.
