Stop (3:28)

Cover of Spiceworld

From Spiceworld and 57 other releases

“Stop” is a song by the Spice Girls, released as their seventh single in the United Kingdom (sixth in the United States) and the third release from their second album, Spiceworld. The song is reminiscent of Supremes singles and other classic girl group songs and was chiefly penned by Geri Halliwell, although as with all their songs the other girls had a great deal of input. Though not the last single to include Geri Halliwell’s vocals, it was the last single to be released before her departure.

Chart performance

This single is seen as the group’s second least successful single ever in terms of chart performance and worldwide sales. It only managed to peak at number sixteen on the Billboard Hot 100, two positions higher than “Spice Up Your Life”, but dropped out of the top fifty much quicker, making it the pieces of Spice’s least successful United States release.

In the UK, “Stop” ended the run of the pieces of the Spice Girls’ consecutive #1 songs, at six (from “Wannabe” to “Too Much”), but still allowed them to become the first act in history to have their first six singles make number 1 in the UK. This record was eventually overtaken by Westlife, whose first 7 singles went to number 1 in the UK. The song debuted at #2, being kept off the top spot by the million-selling Jason Nevins remix of Run DMC’s 1983 hit “It’s Like That”,

You just walk in, I make you smile
It's cool but you don't even know me
You take an inch, I run a mile
Can't win, you're always right behind me
