To discuss MILF Friday: God Must Have Spent A Little More Time on Boy Bands

It wouldn't be the last Friday of the month without Music I Loved Fridays. For the ladies in the house and the dudes who are trying to pretend they didn't enjoy this stuff, here's a little boy band action for you:



No, *NSYNC, you're tearing up MY heart!

Flashback:
It's 1997. I've just entered ninth grade, unaware that our lives are about to change forever. By the high school experience? Heck no. By boy bands! Now, back in time:

I wonder if high school kids dress differently than middle school kids. Maybe I should go to the mall and buy some new Unionbay jeans and a Bugle Boy shirt. Done and done.

Hey, these guys on TV look like they have their fashion sense together. All white shirts and black pants, with coordinating dance moves. That one guy is so silly-- he's got braids in his hair. He must be the goofy one.

*Listening* Da, da, duh dum. Da da duh dum. Baby I don't understand, just why we can't be lovers.

I'm not quite sure what he means by lovers-- it must be something about hugging a lot-- but this is a catchy song. Oh... wait, I think I understand their band name now. *NSYNC, like they are in sync vocally, and perhaps sexually.

Man, my female classmates really love these guys. I'm not sure whose more popular, *NSYNC or those Backstreets Boys. The girls fight over who has cuter band members, which leads me to believe I should join a boy band. I'll be the nerdy one with big glasses who has an inexplicable, irrational belief he's a ladies' man.

Doesn't matter anyway, Backstreet and *NSYNC will never be as popular as Boy II Men!!! I'm going to pretend not to like either band so as to avoid looking like a loser, but secretly, I'll dig all their music.

That Timberpond dude looks like he's going to be a star one day. He's going to bring back sexy good times, I just know it. And Joey, he just has that look like one day he'll host a game show or compete on a dancing competition. Chris looks like he'll fail at life as soon as this group is over, while JC, well, JC isn't Justin, now is he?

As for Lance... hmm... Even in ninth grade, I get the sense there's something different about Lance. It's almost like he's singing about a different person than the other guys.

Billboard Top 5, 1997:
1. Candle In The Wind 1997 » Elton John
2. Foolish Games / You Were Meant For Me » Jewel
3. I'll Be Missing You » Puff Daddy & Faith Evans
4. Un-Break My Heart » Toni Braxton
5. Can't Nobody Hold Me Down » Puff Daddy

My friend was so in love with Lance. It had to be Lance... I liked JC the best back then and I still don't understand why...

Can't say I was much of a fan, but of course, I so much older than you that I feel like I should check for gray hairs.

*screams like a 16 year old girl* I love *NSYNC. Totally love them. AS in, my room had so many *NSYNC pin up that it doubled as wall paper. That wallpaper remained there til I moved in with Fiance and my mom packed up all my shit and took them done. They are all now quietly hanging out in a box(es) in my attic. Except for the singing poster, it's in the same room as me! LOVE THEM!!

Whoo, let me recompose myself there... Yeah, I think I had one of their CDs.. but my current ringback tone is definitely not "Bye,Bye,Bye"

Ah, the age of the Boy Band.

I have a thing for JT, I must admit, but it definitely didn't kick in until he got a decent haircut, which was post NSYNC.

Wow - thanks for the flashbacks!! You know, I dated a guy who looked A LOT like JC. I never realized how much until I watched that video... weird.

They may or may not still be on my iPod.

*hides in shame*

I was so much more a Backstreet girl than N*SYNC. Also, i was never into Justin Timberlake. His little curls just annoyed teh crap out of me.

Now? Yes please.

I loved NSync like you have no idea. Actually, google my real name - that'd be Rumplestiltskin or whatever - and you'll still find my old NSync Web site. That's right, I was hardcore.
