Music Monday – Hello Gen-Y, Love the Boybands…

**RIP Stephen Gately, who passed away on Saturday October 10.**

So like every other girl in the 1990s I liked boybands…so just because I’m feeling rather nostalgic this week…Besides I think I chose the best of the boyband songs. Oh and make sure to check out Take That for the anti-boyband-boyband song πŸ™‚

Boyzone
The original boyband. Singing “No Matter What” (love, love, love — and bet if you weren’t a boyband girl you didn’t know THEY sang this) at ‘Andrew Lloyd Webber: The Royal Albert Hall Celebration’.

“Love me for a reason” at a reunion concert last year in Manchester. Ronan Keating still has it, wow. lol

Take That
You have to remember, “Back For Good!” Robbie Williams is in the video πŸ™‚

And who would have thought about 10 years later, they would get back together, without Robbie, and seriously make un-boyband fantasmic musica!

“Shine” — I first heard them sing it at the Concert for Princess Diana when it was on VH1. This is worth a listen, especially since it’s the anti-boyband-boyband song… LOVE LOVE LOVE!

N Sync
Do you remember peroxide blonde Justin Timberlake?

What about the dolls?

Backstreet Boys
I was totally in 7th grade when this came out…I still think “I Want It That Way” is their BEST song…

A1
Okay so, “I Still Believe” was NEVER a single from A1 (so settle for a YT fan vid), but I think it should have been. I think it’s one of their better songs, if not just because it’s so damn catchy! (P.S., chorus that I love is around 1:12)



And you can’t put A1 anywhere without “Everytime.” I mean c’mon!

Westlife
I know, I’m such a girl…this is my favourite, “Amazing.” I think I have this concert from the Face to Face tour on DVD somewhere. Don’t care that I’m a 20-something, still love their music!

My Love

5ive
I used to love 5ive, lol. Enjoy πŸ™‚
“Until the Time Is Through” <————— their BEST song.

I just love the metal look of this…and the dancing, of course πŸ™‚

BONUS! Blue πŸ™‚
They’re not a boyband from the boyband era…but a boyband nonetheless…and I like this song and they were in “Love Actually”…sorta, they were mentioned.

“Guilty”
