So this week Adele posted a fab picture from her childhood to show her excitement for the upcoming Spice Girls reunion. It was all together gorgeous.

This had me thinking about my bedroom wall of many moons ago. I spent my childhood falling asleep with John Taylor and Simon LeBon staring down at me (or at least I pretended they were). I LOVED posters – kids just do. I don’t know when we stop putting them up on our wall. Probably when we start trying to pretend we are grown up. I remember my cousin telling me that when she was working at a record company, one of the bands she was working with (Kajagoogoo) had a problem. The problem was their biggest fans were kids and kids didn’t buy records, they bought posters. So the album wasn’t selling but Limahl posters were everywhere!
As I got older the Duran Duran posters started to be replaced with Elvis Costello, Echo and the Bunnymen and the Cure – I still loved my posters but I was trying to be more edgy obviously. So tell me what posters did you have on your wall? How about your kids? Any Spice Girl fans? How about Simon LeBon?
