La nostalgia nos juega malas pasadas. Allá por los 90’s, cuando las todavía (por entonces) jovencitas Spice Girls se lanzaron a la fama, no las soportaba: yo venía de muchos años de hacer música y no podía escucharlas sin que me diera ataque peludo y les encontraba todos los defectos del mundo. Que si eran banales, que si no cantaban, que si era el pop más insulso y light del mundo, que si eran un producto del marketing, en fin… whatever.
Ahora, más de diez años después, me siguen pareciendo light, OK, pero esta canción me trae recuerdos de esas épocas; y me hace sonreír con una mezcla de nostalgia, desconcierto y (omg)… ganas de bailar. Quizás porque me recuerda una época en la que era un poco más joven. ¿O un poco menos vieja? En fin: con todo, este video suyo siempre me pareció divertido.
Moraleja: no escupas al cielo…
