    I'm not sure any of these groups would get enough conversation to have their own threads, but I still thought this would be fun to have.

    Discussion including, but not limited to:
    • Spice Girls
    • Backstreet Boys
    • NSYNC
    • Destiny's Child
    • S Club 7

    This was one of the first tapes I owned back in like 1997. I think the little "traditional" Irish bit in the middle is absolutely brill, even now.

    It's fairly laced with innuendos that you don't pick up on as a 7 year old though...

    That was originally going to be a single, right? I was actually just talking about how "Have You Ever" was moved up as a single in response to 9/11 and them continuing to try and break into the American market

    @schlotty I saw him when he was in Seussical on Broadway way back when

    As a reminder that B*Witched also once did a song with Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

    I love the opening spoken line of "some people say I look like me dad"

    the are you serious was a reference to the start of the video! "i fight like me da" is great as well

    On a B*Witched kick now, the video for their song Rollercoaster features one of them in a denim hat, jacket and jeans. The elusive triple denim combo.

    I spend way too much time thinking about what "Gone" would've sounded like if either NSYNC had convinced Michael Jackson to sing on the track with all of them or if MJ had convinced Justin to just do it as a duet with him.

    I was afraid to make S Club 7, Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, Westlife, and Spice Girls threads haha. Plus this allows for more discussion in terms of the general influence of that era, success post-era, etc.

    I feel like you could write a dissertation on this.

    Probably. I'm especially taken by how Westlife was able to sustain and continued to find ways to make themselves relevant up until they disbanded semi-recently. Also how Backstreet Boys don't seem to realize nostalgia is carrying their career.

    How have you not made a Mandy thread...?

    Officer Hot Prestigious

    I'm gonna do it as soon as I finish eating. Unless you want to do it first.

    No. That should be you.

    Need a new Mandy album so bad

    For a while she was implying she was working on one. And lately those implications have turned into implying that she wants to get back into music again. So I'm slightly confused

    formerly irthesteve Prestigious

    My best guess has been that she was working with Ryan, recording in his studio, maybe writing with him... and then, well yeah.
