Default The 90's Boy/Girl Bands

Many of you will remember back in the mid to early 2000's that the dominating pop music was the likes of Boyzone, The Backstreet Boys, B'Witched, The Spice Girls, S-Club 7, N*SYNC, Destiny's Child, TLC and many more. Does anyone feel they left anything worth remembering? I was a young kid and I adored that music until I discovered the rock genre at 13. I would love to hear if anyone else experiences nostalgia for that period. Who stood out the most for you? Who began it all?

For some reason this all I'm listening to lately. Revisiting my childhood I suppose

Been on a massive downloading spree and got myself a load of boy band albums which I didn't have growing up (we couldn't afford to buy albums so I had to make do with recording songs off the radio onto cassetts).

I LOVE boy bands. Most girls have at least one boy/girl band they were into. For me it was Westlife:

for me, the ones that stood out were the Spice Girls and the Backstreet Boys

the Backstreet Boys more, cos they had a pretty good songwriter in Max Martin, the sounds are ultra-catchy, the melodies snappy and all were quite good party music

even the ballads are top-notch

for the Spice Girls, they deteriorated like mad after the 2nd album, and even the first 2 albums were full of filler

I thought the 90s was a dull era for music, with all the soppy commercialised crap audiences were served. Nirvana is where it lies. They are the true stars of the 90s.

Kurt's dead. Get over it.

On a more important note;

Nsync > Backstreet Boys

Except for the Spice Girls I haven't heard of any of those vocal groups and don't think I would ever care to hear their stuff. Though that being said, I thought that the Spice Girls had really missed their opportunity. They should had done more with movies, maybe if they had better song writers and script writers they could had been huge.

I always thought Take That was a pretty good group (although Robbie Williams was smart to eventually leave the group and go solo. And don't forget Hanson. k..so maybe many would not mind forgetting them..but you have to admit that Mmmbop was quite catchy.


And honestly, Nirvana was not the end be all for the 90s.

Being a young girl in the nineties, there were certainly acts that stand out to me even now.

I had a boner for O*Town, 98 Degrees, The Spice Girls, Savage Garden, NSync, The Moffats, Hanson, and all of that jive.

Although not all necessarily boy/girl groups of the nineties, some tracks that remind me of being 10-13 are:

Savage Garden - I Want You
Jewel - Painters
Backstreet Boys - More Than That
98 Degrees - Give Me Just One Night
Ricky Martin - The Cup of Life
Sisqo - The Thong Song
Shawn Colvin - Sunny Came Home
Fastball - The Way
Paula Cole - Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?
Fiona Apple - Criminal
LFO - Summer Girls
Hanson - Where's the Love?
NSync - Tearin' Up My Heart

These were probably the most played tracks when I was a kid.
