I don’t care who you are, where you’ve been, don’t know what you’ve done, as long as you keep wearing matching outfits and singing about love 

Apr 29, 2017

After nine years of marriage, Bryan tends to get tired of my super well-curated Missy Higgins station on Pandora, so yesterday when we were driving around a bunch he switched it to my Simon and Garfunkle station, but the songs on there are mostly songs I either love or hate, so after I ran out of skips I finally switched it to my *NSYNC station, which is both hilarious and familiar and has the added charm of making me feel like I’m at a middle school dance. Not to mention the added Seinfeld-esque comedy bonus of Bryan saying, “Hey, I know this song!” at the beginning of almost every single song. 

I just started this station a month or so ago. I never cared about boy bands (or popular music in general) growing up (ok or still even now), but it’s fun to listen to old songs sometimes. 

Also, the more I listen to them, the more I can’t help thinking that, based on the content of their songs, they would have either made really great boyfriends or just really pathetic/annoying stalkers. Like, I’m all for love, but sometimes you just gotta get over the girl and move on, ya know? 

I should also note that when I say *NSYNC what I really mean is *NSYNC/Backstreet Boys because (with the exception of “Backstreet’s Back Alright” where they say the name of their band IN the song) I can never tell the difference between the two. I had friends in middle school/high school who were nuts for one and anti the other and I honestly don’t know how they could even tell which one was which or remember who was in which band. All I know is that Justin Timberlake was in *NSYNC and that Lance Bass came out as being gay, but even still I don’t remember which band he was in. 

Anyway, here’s to some old 90’s jams, may they rest/live on in peace.
