Thinking of Backstreet Boys, we may think of many of their classic songs: Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely, Everybody, As Long As You Love Me, Shape Of My Heart, ….just to name a few. The following is an introduction to this band I found on a website:
A quintet of hunkalicious singing vocalists, the Backstreet Boys is, probobaly the most popluar vocal group outside the United States. If we are the fans for western pop songs and are interested in B-Boys, let’s take a look at their growing path from the very beginning.
The B-Boys gelled in 1993, in Orlando, where high school students A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough, and junior high student Nick Carter frequently ran into each other at acting auditions. They began hanging out, started singing, and eventually Kevin Richardson and his Kentucky cousin, Brian Littrell joined in. Though their eponymous debut album has by now sold more than 10 million copies in the U.S. The quintet’s 1995 single, “We’ve Got It Goin’ On” fizzled after climbing to No. 69 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
But of course, it’s always lonely at the top, and none of the five currently has a serious girlfriend. Here are the favorites of the Boys: When Nick goes shopping, relates one, he loves to buy sneakers and gold jewelry; Brian’s favorite food is macaroni and cheese, and his favorite cologne is Safari by Ralph Lauren; A.J. likes girls with nice eyes and long hair; Howie is most likely to “invite you for a moonlight walk along the beach”; and Kevin “spent eight years of his life living in a log cabin, and he’s also a qualified ballroom-dancer instructor!”
In 1999, Millennium’s first week out of the gate, the disc amassed 1,133,505 in sales, making it the most albums sold in a week – ever – since SoundScan began recording sales figures, handily trouncing the record set by Garth Brooks the previous December.
Other than introducing those too popular classics of the band, I will put several that are “less popular”. I bet you will love them.
