Viva Forever (5:10)

Cover of Spiceworld

From Spiceworld and 43 other releases

“Viva Forever” is a song by the Spice Girls from their second album, Spiceworld. Originally set to be released alongside the track “Never Give Up on the Good Times” the double A-Side was then pulled as member Geri Halliwell left the group. The song was released on July 20, 1998 in the United Kingdom and gained positive reviews from critics. The song also charted fairly well becoming the band’s eighth number one single gaining a Platinum certification whilst also topping the charts in New Zealand. The single was a commercial success though the promotion was poor due to the departure of Halliwell.

An accompanying music video directed by Steve Box was released featuring the five band members as animated fairies that interact with two friends in a forest. The four remaining members performed the track on shows Top of the Pops and on the National Lottery television show. An adapted duet version was performed with Pavarotti at his annual charity event Pavarotti and Friends. The song was also performed live as a five-piece on their return concert tour, Return of the Spice Girls.

Do you still remember how we used to be
Feeling together, believe in whatever my love has said to me
Both of us were dreamers, young love in the sun
Felt like my savior, my spirit I gave you, we'd only just begun

    People can call the Spice Girls what they want but there is absolutely no denying just how much of a masterpiece this song is. And the teen pop acts of today could never create or write something this magical. [7]

    Although I haven't listened to the song for years, it still sounds as great to me as it did in my childhood.

    The song and video have a very melancholy feel, but they are brilliant. I still find the Spice Fairies a tad creepy, however. [2]
