In the case of The Spice Girls’ hit “Wannabe,” the study of 12,000 people found it takes just 2.29 seconds to recognize the song when it begins at the chorus “if you wanna be my lover…”

Anyone seeking something man-made and sold to the general public which operates at that kind of speed may have to leave the world of song and hit the race track in search of an Ariel Atom – which moves just a hair slower than a Spice Girl tune. The Atom is the fastest accelerating street legal road car on the planet thanks to its ability to go from zero to sixty miles per hour in just 2.3 seconds, according to 10 Most Today website.
