Yesterday, I had enough of feeling sorry for myself – and decided that I was going to change my attitude. The quickest way to change my attitude is to listen to music which is upbeat and happy… so I pop open spotify at work, and type in five familiar letters that always brought me joy.
Oh yeah, those five crazy whacky boys from NSYNC.
Back in the day I was obsessed with NSYNC. As much as I love U2, and Chevelle, and Third Eye Blind (and still do) there is a special place in my heart for the total fandom that came over me with NSYNC. NSYNC was what made my entire world bright and beautiful and I’m pretty sure that anyone who’s been friends with me for a signficant period of time has some memory that is associated with me, and NSYNC. I mean, look at my wall in my room back when I was 17:
And that is just one corner. You should have seen the rest of the room…
So, I started with their first CD, which to be honest, wasn’t as good as I remembered. The only song I still liked was Everything I Own, which is technically a song by Bread anyway.
Then I went to No Strings Attached – which was awesome. It held up.
But when I got to Celebrity? My mind was blown. You see, POP is kind of dubsteppy – and I giggled thinking that NSYNC was ahead of their time since everything is dubstep now-a-days.
Then I hit this:
And the song where I’m pretty sure they actually drop the word “dubstep” (it might be two-step, but whatev):
(PS: JC – no one knows how to freak me like you do.)
Really? NSYNC was doing dubstep in 2001.
Y’all need to play catch up.
