Long story short, I found myself watching some N’Sync videos a few weeks ago. Couple reasons (besides The Hot One) that I love N’Sync:
They are everything that was cool about 15 years ago. This video, for example, has Jamiroquai, Michael (feat Janet) Jackson and just a dash of old school Pinnoco. One word: glorious. Plus, Hot One sings!
Not enough toys for you?! This one is basically Toy Story: The Synchronized Gyration with a little Barbie Girl mixed in for fabulous measure.
Gone is so sad. So sad. But the lyrics really are beautiful, and pairing it with a video full of meaningful stares and wall slides makes it a timeless and truly powerful song. It rivals Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely for best angsty cry-until-you-die song by a 1990’s-era boy band.
Finally, this video is a delight for all senses. Break dancing! Chokers! Shirt on top of a shirt under another shirt! Not to mention the seizure-inducing dance club set and wicked graphics. Also, Hot One sings some more. Please don’t miss the last 30 seconds! Do it for JT.
Thank you for your time.
