Music from my past- What was I thinking?
It was cool back then... I swear it was!
The music that fills my soul with giggles and memories
I did most of my growing up in the late 80's early to mid 90's. This time period brought with it various types of music genre including the ultimate 'Boy Band' experience. Gosh how I loved the New Kids on the Block, I even had the lunch box to tote around my affection for them. (don't hate, I was only eight years old).
If you would please come with me on a trip down memory lane, and revisit the art that made this boy band so desirable. At eight years old, I knew that they had all the right stuff that was important to my fluttering heart.
Enjoy the wonder that was and is New Kids On the Block.
The Right Stuff- Came on a Neon Orange Lunch Box
They made it okay to be a little confused as to how to wear your pants
Kriss Kross had every middle school dance, jumping up and down with laughter and excitement. I was not cool, so I stuck with the jumping only-but the popular crowd added to the Jump-Jump with some equally impressive brake dance type of movements, drawing every 7th and 8th grade girl into the show. When paired with backwards pants that were sagging down to their knees, or perhaps the overalls with one pant leg up, hanging off of one shoulder- wow!! the boys looked oh so cute...
(NOT! But I am not one to judge, I wore rinestones with puffy paint on my clothing. Like I said, I was not cool-by any means.)
What the heck were we thinking? Did we actually have a logical thought to consider this the next great?
What is up with the dramatic expressions? And where is that stupid sign? I don't see it!
She saw the sign... no one else did, but she did!
If this song wasn't so catchy and easy to sing along with, it wouldn't have been worth the wonder that it created in our minds. The question, even now is still: What Sign?
This song makes me laugh, not necessarily because of the lyrics, but because of the intense serious look on the faces of the band members while filming the video. They look so incredibly constipated, I am worried for them.
The band was popular back in the early 1990's. They had a following for a short time, before their appeal dried up and everyone stopped looking for the sign that they sung so faithfully about. This is Ace of Base and the song at hand is: The Sign... Enjoy!
So many women, so little mullet... Poor Billy Ray...
You can tell my heart...
Billy Ray Cyrus wasn't always Hannah Montana's daddy. He was the heart ache cowboy that brought meaning to the mullet and true meaning to heart ache with his hit; Achy Breaky Heart. There is nothing, not to love about this mullet sporting cowboy... He had the hair, the tight jeans, and the moves to move us all.
If you don't know Achy Breaky Heart, I am sorry for you, because this is a song that deserves your heart and affection... Let's hear it Billy Ray! We wont tell you a thing your heart wont understand! (Except maybe...watch that little Hannah Montana, Billy Ray- she will find herself smoking something and it will be captured on tape for the world to judge- Disney Chanel will want her gone, she will lose her sponsors and my goodness...it may be enough to break your achy breaky heart, again)...just saying...?
History became cool...at least Egyptian history did...
If they move too quick (oh whey oh) They're falling down like a domino
Love This Song!
It was the best dance and most creative display of words that I had ever seen! Wonderful and creative... (oh whey oh)!
My favorite lines from the entire song are: The Blonde Waitresses take their trays- They spin around and they cross the floor- They've got the moves (oh whey oh)- You drop your drink then they bring you more.
I think it was the visual I got when hearing the lines...and then let us not forget the whistling solo, that was so great and was finally enough motivation for me to learn how to whistle...
