In Honor Of *NSYNC

The boys of *NSYNC – JC, Justin, Joey, Chris and Lance – will always hold a special place in my 90’s teen-girl heart. I can’t believe they are only today just getting their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That being said, in honor of this fun and well-deserved occasion, here’s a list of some of my favorite *NSYNC songs.

“I Want You Back”: Of course I have to start this list off with the band’s debut single (circa 1998) that starts with young, blond, curly-haired JT’s sexy-ass voice. Oh what that voice (and hair) did to teenage girls across the world in the late ’90s…

“Tearin’ Up My Heart”: I always loved the lyrics and chorus to this pop banger from the quintet.

“Thinking Of You (I Drive Myself Crazy)”: I was OBSESSED with this music video of the boys going crazy in a mental hospital over some (lame) chicks. While ridiculous, it was a lot of fun to watch. And nothing beats JC Chasez belting “Crazy Crazy” while donning a straight jacket. Everything about this song was CRAZY GOOD.

“Bye Bye Bye”: This is the song that everyone knew the dance moves to. And to this day, I still perform (yes, perform) some of the hand motions when this song comes on in my car. It’s the best form of muscle memory.

“It’s Gonna Be Me”: Another fantastic gem of a pop song.

“This I Promise You”: My favorite *NSYNC ballad, but probably the worst music video of all time (sorry boys.)

“Pop”: The best “FUCK YOU” to the pop haters out there that I’ve ever heard. The boys didn’t get nearly enough credit as they should have for sticking it to their critics and coming out on top.

“The Two Of Us”: I was always partial to this song. It’s probably in my top 3.

“Are You Gonna Be There”: A lesser known song for sure, as it was never released on one of their albums (which always surprised me), but still a FANTASTIC song. I love when JC goes all high and falsetto and he does it beautifully here in the bridge.

“If I’m Not the One”: Another lesser known song that wasn’t on any of their albums. BUT one of my all-time favorites nonetheless.

Eli Paperboy Reed “Come And Get It”

Every time I hear this song I want to get up and dance. A nice #tbt that sounds like it’s even #tbt-er than it really is (the single was released in 2010, not the 1960’s.)

Simon and Garfunkel “Blues Run the Game”

Dude. These two. Happy Throwback Thursday.

Lily Allen “Fuck You”

Basically. #tbt

 

Simon & Garfunkel “The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin Groovy)”

A sweet, short little throwback of a song. Brilliant.

 

Slash f/ Adam Levine “Gotten”

“You just get me like I’ve never been gotten before.”

Ugh I’ve always loved that line and everything else about this song. It’s an older song, from 2010, and still remains one of my favorites. When you meet someone that just understands you from day one – all of you including your flaws, demons and scars – that has to be amazing. I hope someone gets me one day.

Rod Stewart “The Motown Song”

Yep. Pretty sure I could listen to this song a million times in a row and never EVER get sick of it. #throwbackgold

SWV “Weak”

Holy Throwback Thursday. You are welcome.

Britney Spears “That’s Where You Take Me” 

Oh good ole Britney. I forgot about this song until recently. It was never a standout single but now thinking back, it might actually be one of my favorites.
