Band Name Origins:

  • they originally named their band "Spice" because it sounded hot, but it was already the name of a british rapper and they were nearly sued for using a copyrighted name .... so they changed it to "The Spice Girls" Submitted by: juli
  • During the making up of a name as out of Take five, High Five, Plus Five, and Touch. In the end Geri thought of Spice because they were all so different just like spices. That is how the Spice Girls were named. -- Got that info from Geri Halliwell's book "If Only" Blueytwo The Spice girl one that is supposedly from Geri's book is bogus, she says the spice names were given to them by a mag and verifys the story that they were named after a song called Sugar and Spice with girls being added to the name Spice becasue there was a band called Spice already GInger The girls wrote a song called Sugar and Spice (it was never released) and then one of them got the idea to call themselves the Spice Girls.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Wannabe"
The Funny Lyrics:
If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends
Why They're Funny:
I hope this line means "you gotta hang around with my friends, as well as me, in order to be my lover", otherwise this could have a different meaning.
Submitted by: Joe
"Too Much"
The Funny Lyrics:
Too Much of something is bad enough (Bad enough),
But something's coming over me to make me wonder,
Too much of nothing is just as tough (just as tough),
I need to know the way to feel to keep me satisfied
Why They're Funny:
In the beginning it seems like they are talking about sex and saying that too much of it is bad enough but no sex is bad too. So they find a solution to keep them satisfied which is to masturbate!

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Holler"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I wanna make you holler (and make you scream my name)
I'll give you rules to follow...
Why They're Misrhymed:
The funniest thing about this song is that you can even hear the girls pronounce 'follow' as 'foller' just to make it rhyme. Did we get distracted in the studio while recording? Face it, girls, 'follow' and 'holler' will never go together no matter how much you manipulate either word...now if they said 'I wanna make you hollow', we might have had an entirely new type of song on our hands...
Submitted by: Devil Jones

Now don't go wasting my precious time
Get your act together we could be just fine
Why They're Misrhymed:

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"2 Become 1"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Any deal that we endeavour,
Boys and girls feel good together...
Why They're Dirty:
I was a bit older than the average SG fan in the heyday so I knew what the lyrics were about. What bugs me is that the SG wrote and sang songs like this (thinly disguised, of course) knowing full well that little girls would be singing along not realizing what the meaning of the lyrics were. Oh well, there is a clean version, Any deal that we endeavour,
Love will bring us back together...
Submitted by: Waterbabe
