‘Stop’ was the only single not to reach the #1 in the UK during their peak. However, it still managed to chart at #2 and sell over 400,000 copies.
8. Mama / Who Do You Think You Are
This was the 4th UK #1 by the Spice Girls. It was a double A-side released for Comic Relief and it managed to sell around 660,000 copies despite being the fourth single from their first album.
7. Too Much
The girls’ second Christmas #1 in the UK comes in at #7 on this top 10 songs list thanks to the fact it sold an impressive 670,000 copies in total.
6. Viva Forever
A fan favourite, ‘Viva Forever’ was the first single the Spice Girls released after Geri’s departure. Proving they weren’t over yet, they managed to sell around 700,000 copies of it.
5. Spice Up Your Life
This became an absolute anthem in the late summer of 1997 and the girls’ 4th #1 which sold an amazing 850,000 copies in the UK only.
This is the first song the group wrote, recorded and released after Geri left and it became their third and final Christmas #1 single in the UK with sales that exceeded the 880,000 copies.
3. Say You’ll Be There
Many people consider this as the coolest Spice Girls song and, it fact, it has managed to sell almost 1,000,000 copies since it was released in October 1996.
2. 2 Become 1
This song about safe sex has to date sold over 1,100,000 copies in the UK alone, making it the #2 in this top 10 songs list by the Spice Girls.
Of course, no other song could be at #1. ‘Wannabe’, one of the biggest songs ever, was the girls’ first and biggest #1 in the UK with sales that surpass the 1,360,000 copies.
