Review: Spice Girls – Wannabe (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Spice Girls – Wannabe.

This track was released in 1997 as a single.

The track starts with the main chorus backed by piano. Probably the one thing this track has going for it is the fact that it can be immediately recognize by virtually anyone who lived through the 90s.

The track then goes into verse which slows the track somewhat. There’s an additional chorus, but when it goes into the next verse, the track changes somewhat. There’s multiple voices that come in.

One problem I have with this track is the use of made up words. It’s bad enough that I hear tracks with slurred lyrics, but when the words are completely made up (gibberish), it’s harder to really get the meaning.

The track lyrics does delve into the topic of relationships. While some elements are easy to understand, others makes me a little lost.

On the bright side, the track does have that sense of being catchy from time to time. This is probably what makes it so easy to sample. Take a small part of the track out and just allow people to catch that part, it actually sounds quite good. When it’s all together, the flow can be a little bit clunky. It’s a reasonable effort, but nothing to get overly excited over.

Overall, this track is a pretty average effort. While small sections of the track can be catchy, the whole song is merely decent. The lyrics contain gibberish which makes it harder to understand. An OK track, but there’s far better out there.

Score
5.5/10
