Song of The Week

Once there was a phenomena known as the Spice Girls.  They were an all-girl group that conquered the world with a big selling album, a stupid movie and...they pretty much went away.  One band member married a famous soccer (Football to you non-Americans.  Silly non-Americans; calling a game where you kick a ball around with your foot "football".  Don't you know football is that game where the ball is carried by your hands?) player and the rest had varying degrees of solo success.

What some of you might not know...or at least you here in the states, was there was another all-girl band that came out at about the same time called All Saints.  They didn't have quite the impact in the USA the Spice Girls did and I don't know why.  Maybe it was because they weren't as gimmicky as the Spice Girls and hence did not have the same sort of hook.  Maybe the market here in the states couldn't sustain two girl bands.  I don't know.  I do know is I liked the All Saints singles better than the Spice Girls.  One of them was Black Coffee:
