A lot of classic 80s albums have held up today, and in particular, these 10 are ones that we're pretty sure everybody had.

First, we totally freaked out because they got together and hinted at a reunion, we heard the rumors of all of Victoria Beckham's conditions, then our hopes were completely dashed when she said there were no plans to tour, but reignited when they said there were other Spice Girl projects in the works.
