"Wannabe" named catchiest song of ALL TIME



- The Spice Girls "Wannabe" was named the catchiest song by an online experiment and was closely followed by fellow nineties classic, "Mambo no 5" by one hit wonder Lou Bega and the song all boxing montages are set by Survivor, "Eye of the Tiger".
- In the experiment listeners could recognise the Spice Girls break out hit, a whooping 2 seconds earlier than other songs.
- Over 12,000 people participated in the experiment, which is sold as a game, the aim of which is to unravel what it is that makes a song memorable.
- The research is hoped to help people who suffer dementia.
