The original Spice Girls line-up, back in the '90s

Only a true Spice Girls fan will score 5/5 on this quiz…

The Spice Girls were, without a doubt, the epitome of #girlpower back in the day, and everyone who was anyone had a favourite song. But, while we love Mama, Say You’ll Be There, Who Do You Think You Are, Spice Up Your Life and Two Become One to the moon and back, there’s no denying that Wannabe – with its fast tempo, catchy lyrics and triumphant celebration of female friendship – was the ultimate Spice Girl anthem.

But how well do we really know the 1996 hit? It’s time to find out in our incredibly tricky quiz…

Fact: it’s Mel B’s unforgettable laugh which opens the iconic Spice Girls song

Question 1/5

Ha ha...

If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends, sure – but you’ve *GOT TO* give, too.

Question 2/5

If you wanna be my lover, you have got to...

The line, sung by Mel B, goes: “We got G (Geri) like MC (Mel C) who likes it on an E...asy V, doesn't come for free"

Question 3/5

We got Em in the place who likes it in your face...

And, yeah, it means exactly what it sounds like it does!

Question 4/5

Slam your body down...

Bit of a tongue twister, huh?

Question 5/5

So tell me what you want, what you really really want...

Whoops!You’ve missed 5 questions

What did I miss?

Like we said, only a true Spice Girls fan will score 5/5 on this quiz!
