We originally shared this post in May 2013 on our original blog sarahpluslaura.blogspot.co.uk but during a pub quiz we were reminded about Spice Girls lyrics. That subsequently reminded me of this post about how I ruined Laura’s innocent understanding of Spice Girls songs….
Are there any songs you realise have a different meaning now you are older?
On our date night Friday we went to see Viva Forever, the Spice Girls Musical. We’ll do another post on the actual date night but this post is more specifically about the Spice Girls and the generation gap it showed between us.

Our conflicting understandings may have never been raised had a scene in Viva Forever not featured a bedroom scene where 2 become 1 was sung. So as S chuckled at the ‘be a little bit wiser baby, put it on, put it on’ line, Laura was left looking shocked. So below we have shared our explanations of a few of Spice Girls lyrics and what we each thought they were about!
Are there any songs you’ve realised were super raunchy now that you’re all grown up?
