It`s `Wannabe` by the Spice Girls, a song released in the overwhelming tide of `90s pop music only to crest at the top of the wave.

Even though it turned 18 this year, `Wannabe` is still hailed as the best-selling single by a female group in the world, according to
Female First."

Yo, I`ll tell you what I want, what I really really want,
So tell me what you want, what you really really want,
I`ll tell you what I want, what I really really want,
So tell me what you want, what you really really want,
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really really really wanna zigazig ha.

Wannabe, by the Spice Girls

You won`t find any of the 20 catchiest songs in any top twenty best songs list selected by critics. These ditties aren`t masterpieces of lyricism, they are catchy musical bubblegum that gets stuck in your mind like gum or crap gets stuck on your shoe.

"Wannabe" isn`t going to be studied in a college musical appreciation class, but it might be played non-stop at a prison cell run by the CIA to torture terrorists into giving up their secrets.

You won`t catch me humming "Wannabe" at work in an attempt to impress my co-workers with how cool I am, but I will sing it at the top of my lungs when I`m taking a shower.

I`m an anglophile, and I love British music, everything from the Beatles to yes, the Spice Girls. Back in the day, I turned up the radio whenever the DJ played " Wannabe."

So here`s a story from A to Z, you wanna get with me you gotta love you some Spice Girls!
