A Decade Of Poptastic No.1s!

Spice Girls – Who Do You Think You Are/Mama

15th March 1997

This was one of the first singles I owned, or part-owned, since I had to share it with my sister, and at the time I found it utterly hilarious that she thought the lyrics went “Who do you think you are? Put it in a jam jar!” Actually it’s still quite funny and I will remind her of it next time she’s being annoying, which I’m sure I won’t have to wait long for. I’ve already written about the Spicies once, in the entry for Wannabe, so I won’t go on anymore about the band.

Who Do You Think You Are was my favourite of theirs from the first time I heard it and it still is. It’s one of their most fun and poppiest songs, and great to make up dance routines for. Mama wasn’t a favourite at the time but hearing it now really makes me reminisce about “the good old days” – it just sounds so 90s in a hugely comforting way, as old familiar things do. It’s actually a lovely song.
