In the late 80s, for me, it was all about my Commodore 64, Knightrider and New Kids On The Block. I saw a tweet (I'm on Twitter as @VexintheCity) on Wednesday night, mentioning the 80s/90s heartthrobs would be bringing their joint tour with the Backstreet Street boys to Europe. I saw the ad in The Metro on the way to work yesterday morning and tickets were purchased within the hour!
I've been singing NKOTB tunes for almost two days straight and I'm showing no signs of shutting up yet. I'm really looking forward to this. My friend is threatening to disown me if I rock up in a NKOTB t-shirt - she knows damn well that's exactly what I'm gonna do! I used to love Jordan! Oh yes I did! I remember doing 'The Right Stuff' dance moves in the playground at primary school, bumbag around my waist, complete with my black suede Kickers. Oh the memories!
The Backstreet Boys are the only recent boy band that I don't mind and have a bit of personality, and who doesn't know a Backtreet Boys tune (No? You haven't lived!) so I intend on having an uncensored, pop-tastic night girly night out, worlds away from the usual beat-sexy, stream of hip hop which fills my ears on a regular basis.
For those of you old enough to remember (and appreciate) NKOTB in all their youthful glory, this is for you:
Step By Step...My fave NKOTB track!
Oh and I can't wait to get down to this baby:
Can you tell I'm excited? It's gonna be such a fun night. Anyone else going?
