British newspaper the Daily Mail reported that Gavin Townroe, a resident of Nottingham, has been evicted for playing the Spice Girls’ 1998 hit Viva Forever loudly and all the time on repeat. The eviction comes from several complaints from neighours as well as one neighbour reportedly missing a day of work due to a lack in sleep over the noise. The Daily Mail reported, “Other neighbours at the same block of flats, in Nottingham, would even leave their homes just to get away from the constant sound of the pop stars – dubbed Sporty, Baby, Posh, Scary and Ginger – which would be repeatedly played at all hours.”
Enforcement officer Wayne Cliff explained, “Despite being warned, Mr. Townroe had a total disregard for his neighbours. At times the volume was so loud residents would leave their properties to escape the music.”
Okay, hypothetical question: if you had to be evicted for playing one song over and over really loudly, what would it be? Tell us in the comments section below and because we can, here’s the Spice Girls’ hit, Viva Forever.
