#MusicMonday Boy Band Edition by TayneMent

Hi guys, happy Monday to you and yours. I hope you guys aren’t sick of me but Blogger Neef needed help so I thought I’d chime in. I was going to do a part 2 of my hauntingly beautiful list but I figured we have enough melancholy around and maybe I’d try to inspire a laugh. I decided to go with a trip down memory lane specifically: The Boy Band era. C’mon na, y’all remember when they were hot! I am hoping this will make you laugh either at their corniness or your memory of how you thought they were hot (I know which category I fall under). So here’s but a few, hope you enjoy and fine at least one song that takes you down memory lane and puts a smile on your face. Have a lovely week!

These were my boys. These ARE STILL my boys. Even though, people don’t know they still make music, I will forever and ever love these boys and will now and in the future pay good money to see them in concert.

Backstreet Boys – I want it that way
The group who came from nowhere and stole the thunder from my boys. I can’t be too mad because they were the starting ground for my baby daddy. I loved this song so much and it is arguably one of their best songs.

Nsync – Gone
They were the bronze medalists in the boy band saga but they managed to slip out a few hits. I chose this particular song because it was more upbeat than their other ballads.

98 Degrees – Una Noche
I am taking it waaaay back with this one. If you grew up in Nigeria there is no way you haven’t heard this song. This was our first introduction to the boy band craze that would hit a few years later. Ladies and Gentlemen, from across the pond…

Take That – Want you back for good

Figured I should insert a band of our color in here. I thought about Shai – If I ever fall in love, thought about All4One – I swear, I thought about Azyet – Last Night but I figured I’d settle for..
Soul For Real – Candy Rain
One last one before I go is another English group that I think is underrated. This is my favorite song of theirs, hope you like (d) it:

BBMak – Ghost of you and me
Ok guys hope you had a smile, chuckle or laugh. Remember, I wish it was possible to include all the songs I would like to but it’s all good. Feel free to share your own favorite “boybanding” songs lol.

  8. Nsync "Bye Bye Bye" has to be included on this list. CLASSIC. It's one of those songs that just makes you happy whenever you hear it. That was the entire purpose of the dancing, hair gel-laden creatures called boy bands. :)
