Guilty pleasure.

Last week, I was driving home late from a meeting and was blaring my usual 90’s music station. I squealed with delight as the Backstreet Boys’ “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” came on the radio.

Is the song a work of art? Hardly.

But listening to it brought me back—way back—to the days when songs from boy bands were as deep as it got. Heartbreak? That’s what happened when a concert was over. No, seriously, I was almost in tears after seeing the Backstreet Boys live. My other loves were, of course, Hanson, *NSYNC, and 98 Degrees, among others.

While I love the video for “Everybody,” I just had to post “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)” because it’s super cheesy, while simultaneously capturing everything that is quintessential about boy bands.

“Everything I do is for you, so what is it that you can’t see?” -The Backstreet Boys
