There are certain bands which have had a cult following and definitely, Backstreet Boys is perched right on top of that list.
“I live my life the way,
To keep you comin’ back to me,
Everything I do is for you,
So what is it that you can’t see. “
~Quit Playing Games
The band came into being in 1993 and consists of A.J.McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell.
Their initial albums, “Backstreet Boys” and “Backstreet’s Back” enjoyed great commercial success but it was through their third album, “Millennium” that they rose to superstardom.
The band followed its success story with “Black & Blue” which was critically acclaimed as well as commercially.
All the members have their own unique and distinctive voice which is amazing and when they sing together, it’s like cherry on a cake.
It is one of those few bands whose songs can never grow old. And even if they do grow old, like wine, they sound even better. You cannot afford to miss any of their songs.
An aura of invincibility surrounds them.
“I don’t care who you are,
Where you’re from,
What you did,
As long as you love me. “
~As Long As You Love Me
The irresistible lure of getting charmed by the everlasting and awe-inspiring melodies that take you to your own incredible realm is just a small way of describing them and their songs.
“I tried to go on like I never knew you,
I’m awake but my world is half asleep,
I pray for this heart to be unbroken,
But without you all I’m going to be is incomplete. “
You can put their songs on an infinite loop and need not worry because you know you are being served with the most beautiful songs. Their songs have a deep romantic undertone.
You can be sure that if you are singing any of their songs to your girl, she will swoon over you. That’s magic and only the Backstreet Boys can do that.
“Cause everytime I breathe,
I take you in,
And my heart beats again,
Baby I can’t help it,
You keep me,
Drowning in your love.
Everytime I try to rise above,
I’m swept away by love,
Baby I can’t help it,
You keep me,
Drowning in your love. “
“Crawling Back To You“, “Climbing The Walls“, “Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely” are among some of my favorite songs of Backstreet Boys.
“Safest Place To Hide” is a lovely song.
“Larger Than Life” is a different take by Backstreet Boys.
“Trouble Is“, “Inconsolable“, “Something That I Already Know” and “Just Want You To Know” are some of the notable mentions.
Among their recent albums, “Shape Of My Heart” and “In A World Like This” are the ones I like the most.
Their music is one of the very few ones that you remember for a long time. It’s like a perfect amalgamation of heartwarming music, soulful lyrics and heavenly voices which stands testimony to Backstreet Boys.
Even though their songs enthuse a similar feeling, yet each and every time you hear their songs, it sounds mint fresh.
“Hey Mr.DJ“, “Everyone” and “International Love” are some of the peppy ones that are foot tapping.
Their songs coupled with the lyrics are so wonderful that it would take me many more articles to totally describe what I feel about their songs. There’s no count to the number of awesome songs that they gave us. They have always been the people’s favorite and will always remain so.
Backstreet boys came with a purpose, to produce timeless classics that we hum even today.
“You are my fire,
The one desire,
Believe when I say,
I want it that way. “
~I Want It That Way
For the best selling boy band in history, bow down for Backstreet Boys.
