In the beginning they needed a lot of work and the first song that they wrote together was “It's Just One Of Those Days”.

9. Baby Emma

Many fans  look at Emma and see her as being very sweet and adorable. A lot of fans might even see Emma as defenseless plus innocent. However, according to Melanie B she said that she could get away with doing something big like murder. She is not as defenseless like her fans might think that she is and in Goju she actually has a blue belt. In the video “Say You'll Be There” she was the one that had to help the others learn some karate kicks.  How's that for girl power?

He replaced that poster and put up one of Baby Spice aka Emma.

7. The Plain One

Fans might be surprised but Melanie C feels that she is the “plain one” in the Spice Girls. She also went on and said that something that they are all proud of is the fact they are not very beautiful but yet at the same time that is what they are all very proud about and in the group she felt that the nickname “Sporty Spice” suited her. The first album that Melanie did was called Northern Star and it sould over four million copies.

6. The Head Leader

rden that her family would keep sheep or either she would say that she was born in a plane. She would try hard to always stand out and she still continues. Back in May 30th, 1998 Geri decided to leave the Spice Girls because the group had a few differences but what fans might not know was that she was also depressed. The other Spice Girls decided to try and write a few of the songs without her being there and one song that was very popular was on their album Forever and it was called “Goodbye” and another famous song on that album was “Let Love Lead The Way.”

The commercials also were used in order to promote the spicy new sandwich that was crispy.

1. Girl Power

The saying “Girl Power” created a brand new phenomenon in the social world. However, the slogan also got a lot of mixed reviews and actions.

They decided to give a message to young girls, women and adolescents about empowerment and they succeed.
