At 1:38 of one of the Spice's biggest flops, but ironically one of their greatest songs, we have the BEST EVERRRRR Star Trek reference in pop:



She sings,

'We can go ooon and ooon/
Doin things we thought we would never doooo/
And I won't energise' wub.gif

Can we please show some appreciation for THIS BOP, their love (or at least VB's?) of Star Trek with an appreciation lyric for it, and that video though??

Slick
Is this a piss take? I mean, that is clearly not the lyric. (If this is a piss take, rofl and lmao etc.)

This lyric has legit caused confusion within the fan base since the song came out, lol.

"We can go all night long
Doing things you thought you would never do
And I won't _______"


Greatest Hits booklet says "And I won't tell you now". The Forever booklet doesn't even include a lyric for that part.

There's been loads of other suggestions from fans (seriously, there was a poll on DenDen with nearing 50 options :') ), but two popular ones are "And I won't tell na na" and "And I won't tell no lie".
Slick
It sounds like "tell no lie/s" to me.
December Dong
No, it's a Star Trek reference - Victoria's a Trekkie!
December Dong
Although repeated listens make it sound like it COULD be and I won't tell my dad, but that wouldn't fit with the futuristic Star Trek Holodeck video, or futuristic robo-vocals at that bit.

Not sure why Mel C is singing, And I won't tell anyone in the background just after though :/

Also, it's we can GO ON AND ON, not all night long

She CLEARLY says 'And I won't tell Baghdad', making a controversial yet passionate case for the UK's war on terror in the Tony Blair era.

I really wish I'd saved the suggested lyrics on DenDen, some of them were hilarious. sad.gif I don't think yours was in that list though, Leww x
December Dong
How many agreed with the Star Trek pop reference lyric?
Jay ☆
That also wasn't on the list, hun. sad.gif

One of the (very tongue in cheek) suggestions was "and I want to empower women" heehee.gif (seriously VB says this all the time in her interviews about her fashion!)
December Dong
'And I want to empah-weeer'
'And I won't energ-iiise'

Kinda similar tbh!!

Can see why they thought so ohmy.gif

My fave line in Holler at the time (it still is) was:

Holler holler holler c'mon c'mon holler holler holler holler c'mon c'mon
XmasIslandSnake
Sounds like 'I won't tear no tie' to me!

Oh my that has always been my favourite part of the song too, but the best line is the Star Trek energise one of course!
