In the book “The Spice Girls Revisited” by David Sinclair it was confirmed by the co-writers/producers of the song Matthew Rowe & Richard Stannard that Geri Halliwell was the main songwriter of “Viva Forever”, the last single by the Spice Girls as 5 piece. The song was written/recorded in 1997. 

As for the meaning of the song, it is said that it’s about a romance that she kept a secret [Feelings unfold, they will never be sold and the secret’s safe with me] and it mostly reflects on the holidays, adventures and memories they made together.

The funny thing is: Geri never had a long term boyfriend during the Spice Girls or had the time to date anyone outside fame. Plus, most of the holidays/adventures she went was with Melanie B [Fiji, Portugal, Spain, Sri Lanka, Antigua and Barbudas, Maui, the infamous Mojave desert incident]. At the end, it pretty much explains why the song never mentions a “he”.

Bottom line: The song is about her relationship with Mel B.

Note: Mel B cried while performing this song twice in Oslo, Norway during the ‘98 Tour. The 28th of May (the day after Geri left) and the 29th (on her 23rd birthday).

For the get to know me numbers meme: 2, 3, 20, & 25! :)

2. Pizza or chicken nuggets?

CHICKEN NUGGIES ALL THE WAY! My faves are definitely (don’t judge me for this) Mcdonald’s nuggets with sweet and sour sauce.

3. If you could visit any country in the world, where would you go?

Japan or Italy, it’s kind of a tossup. Japan because I want to go pay my respects to Tama the Eternal Station Master for all her service, and I wanna meet the onsen monkeys!

Italy, because Rome is the coolest city ever. I’d also like to go and see the Sistine Chapel! And even if it is kinda stinky I would like to see Venice before it sinks.

20. Marvel or DC? 

DC all the way! The Flash is definitely my fave hero, my fave TV show, and the hero I own the most shirts of (currently two!).

Marvel can go suck an egg.

25. Do you have any pets?

I have 1 dog and approximately 27 piñatas in Viva Piñata at the current moment (I think, I have to check on my Fudgehogs)
