Boy Bands

We were out to dinner on Saturday night in Blenheim and when we got home we saw the end of Saturday night’s U-Choose Top 40 and this week it was boy/girl bands. It was pretty painful sitting through about 12 music videos (hey I was knitting, it just happened to be on in the background) but it was pretty scary just how many I could sing along to! Our friends were impressed! It’s crazy how all the bands are the same yet there are so many of them that have been successful in their own rights. As far as the boy bands go:

  • usually 4 or 5 boys
  • they’re all very moody looking
  • there’s always one very young looking one and one who’s a bit different (whether it be hair, skin or eye colour)
  • they all look like they’re miming when they’re singing
  • videos have an obligatory white outfit and a scene in a tunnel (usually with blue walls or blue lighting) and a scene at an airport or with a plane in the background

[While I was ‘researching’ this post I had to visit a few boy band sites to find some images – yikes – and was subjected to sound bytes blasting out of my Mac … hmmmm, have yet to learn a) where the volume knob is and b) how to quickly shut a TAB ONLY in the browser without shutting everything that’s open because if you just switch to another tab the song keeps on going!]

Anyway, here’s the top 10 as voted by New Zealand viewers on Saturday night … *NSync the winner on the night:

  1. Bye bye bye –  *NSync
