Backstreet Boys - Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) (by BackstreetBoysVEVO)
@AlyssaRosenberg: Boy bands, creepier than you realizedOur default assumption tends to be, I think, that boy band songs are substanceless trifle meant to make girls feel all lovey-dovey. But listening to this stuff through the years is a reminder that when boys talk to girls about love, even and maybe especially in commercial packaging, things can get awfully creepy.
@PaleGirlSquad: I don’t care. I’m never going to stop loving the one that’s the best boy band video featuring monsters.
@cleolinda: Well obviously, same here. I mean, I need to be shown how they’re going to bring the flavor. It’s an eternal question.
Wait…this was supposed to be a love-song?
What? I love this song the way I love monsters but a love-song… nah.
Woooo! GET YOUR DANCE ON!
We can dance if we want to,
We can leave your friends behind,
Because your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance
Then they’re no friends of mine.
Haters gonna hate.
There’s a story somewhere about how Tinker Bell saved Peter, showed him how to be a lost boy, how she loved him enough to stay in Neverland with him. She was a lost girl for only a moment before she found herself again and Peter…
Peter forgot she had ever been anything else.
There are no lost girls in Neverland, but there are fairies, and mermaids, and Indian princesses. The girls are not lost.
