The Spice Girls had the number 1 song in the country twenty years ago today with their smash hit, "Wannabe." Yes, it REALLY has been twenty whole years since Wannabe topped the charts.

How is that for Throwback Thursday? Does that make you feel kind of old like it did for us?

Come to think of it: the song itself is technically old enough to drink by now because it was originally released in 1996

OK, now we feel old. But let us hear you say: zig-a-zig-ah to celebrate the occasion. Actually, don’t. We’re still not totally sure what zig-a-zig-ah means. We have some ideas, but twenty years later it remains one of life’s greatest mysteries. We do, however, apologize for getting the song "Wannabe" stuck in your head tonight.
