Ten Songs To Prove That We Need To Appreciate O-Town !

Before One Direction were put together on a reality television show, there was O-Town. The band was put together by Lou Pearlman, the guy who found Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC , no big deal or anything.

Anyway, Lou put together the show ‘Making The Band’, where he found five good looking guys who looked the part, could dance, and could sing in perfect harmony.

It was there that the band O-Town was put together.

I feel like over the years people only really focus on Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC when it comes to the 90’s and early 2000’s. Yes, they were definitely the two dominant ones but I think that both 98 Degrees and O-Town have been looked over.

Now, I have already talked about why 98 degrees should have been more appreciated, but now it is time to appreciate O-Town. Clearly I am passionate about my boy bands, judge away, but you know you love them too!

O-Town has made a big comeback too, Ashley Parker Angel decided not to join them but they are still selling out all of their shows.

For the record, my reasons are songs because I genuinely believe that their vocals should be more appreciated!

10. Sexiest Woman Alive

9. Baby I Would

8. Lines and Circles

7. Chasin’ After You

6. We Fit Together

5. Every Six Seconds

4. Skydive

3. These Are The Days

2. Liquid Dreams

1.All of Nothing

So there you have it, there are ten songs why we should appreciate O-Town more. They deserve more recognition!

They made their mark on the boy band world, put some respect on their name.

Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC Mastermind Lou Pearlman Dead at 62


photo credit

Over the weekend Lou Pearlman was found dead in his cell at the Federal Correctional Institute in Tezarkana, Texas where he was serving a 25 year prison sentence for stealing over $300 million from different investors, and even some of his talent.

The Backstreet Boys were Lou’s first real taste of fame, and he stole millions from them. He put them together, claimed he was a sixth member and got paid like he was one of them. In case you didn’t know, that isn’t legal. You can’t be a member and also get paid as a manager, it’s the law. When the boys complained about being too tired to do certain things, after touring for nearly eight years in Europe before they made it big in America, Lou decided to form NSYNC, he literally made competition so the Backstreet Boys would continue to hustle hard and make money that he was taking at the end of the day.

So anyway, he stole a shit ton of money, he also created a ton of talent. Without Lou there is a good chance there wouldn’t have been that pop resurgence in America in the late 90’s. He not only found Backstreet Boys and NSYNC, he also found LFO, Aaron Carter, and O-Town as well.

Rolling Stone reported allegations about him molesting younger boys, some members of the bands listed, this is all allegedly though. Nothing has ever been confirmed. When his past caught up to him with his money scheme though, he went off to Bali but FBI agents found him and he was brought back to the United States to be tried.

Due to his checkered past it seems as though members of the bands have mixed emotions about his passing.

10 Reasons To Follow Ashley Parker Angel On Instagram

Everyone remembers Ashley Parker Angel, right? He was a part of the boy band O-Town and then ended up going solo and having a short lived show on MTV? Yeah, that guy.

Well fun fact is that he is an absolute babe now. I mean back in the day he definitely had a lot going for him. He had those blue eyes, the blonde hair, a jawline that wouldn’t quit. He basically took over the heartthrob role in the group, a very important role in the early 2000’s boyband era.

Well Ashley is still an absolute babe believe it or not. I was checking out his Instagram not long ago and let me just tell you one thing. He is perfection. Now he didnt join O-Town for their reunion tour and he said it was because he was trying to be a model. I had to check it out and well, modeling looks good on him.

Here are 10 reasons why you should follow this former boyband heartthrob to adult beef cake.

So this is not a dream, this is real life. The MY2K tour is going to be absolutely incredible. Not only will 98 Degrees be there but O-Town, Dream, and Ryan Cabrera? What did we do to deserve such a great lineup? Honestly, we don’t deserve a line up like this, that is something that I am sure of but hey, I will accept it and buy tickets as quickly as I possibly can.

Clearly bands are starting to realize that nostalgia is the best thing in the world because they are coming up with awesome lineups and tours. Nothing like some throwback music to really get your day going!

Ashley Parker Angel Posts His Top 9 Photos Of 2015

If you don’t know who Ashley Parker Angel is that’s okay. Just think of him basically being the Harry Styles of a former boyband O-Town. Well O-Town is back, but Ashley decided not to join.

I just wanted to post this because oh my god he is beyond gorgeous. I mean really. He is just getting better with age and nothing makes sense. I might be in love with him, no I am absolutely in love with him.

Bless this post.

O-Town Releases First Single In 10 Years “Skydive”!

Image

This is a big day for all 90, early 2000’s boy band loving people, O-Town is officially back! With the release of their new song ‘Skydive’ it only proves that they can do this comeback without Ashley Parker Angel. The song is a banger, it is straight fire and anyone who doesn’t like it, well you can go elsewhere.

‘Skydive’ is going to be my new obsession, I can already tell that. When I go to the club, “Play Skydive” even if the DJ asks me what song it is, I will simply bring up soundcloud on my phone and jam to it. Yes it is a slow tack but I can do that interpretive dance shit to it.

In my opinion O-Town is actually a really important band because it was the first music making experiment, whether people want to admit that or not. This band was formed by people all trying out for it, only men though. P.Diddy also didn’t have anything to do with it so these guys were the OG of the whole singing talent show obsession we have now.

“‘Skydive’ brings us back to what we are known for; a powerfully produced ballad with equally powerful performances, except this time with a unique request to our fans – ‘Will you take a leap of faith with us?’,” Estrada said in a statement to MTV News of the track, their first offering since 2002′s O2.

Yes, O-Town I will take a giant leap of faith on your new song and your new album which they will be releasing August 3rd, it will be called Lines & Circles, which is a pretty bad ass name. It sounds like something Coldplay or One Republic would use, right?

So Ashley Parker Angel Is Still Absolutely Gorgeous

Image

When O-Town decided that they were having a reunion, I was beyond excited. I mean I always thought they were underrated. Not many guys can sing about wet dreams and make it a hit with young girls who may not have known what a liquid dream was at the time. I have said before that ‘All or Nothing’ is one of the best pop songs of all time, it needs to be my wedding song.

Anyway, I was hit with the hard reality that Ashley Parker Angel wasn’t going to be back with the band and I couldn’t understand why! I didn’t know why he wouldn’t want to be back with the band, singing, dancing, all of that! He tried to do the solo thing and it didn’t really work, so get back with the band! Plus he is one of the only guys named Ashley I have ever heard of and let’s be real he makes that name work for himself.

Even though Ashley crushed my dreams of him being on stage again I can see why, he doesn’t need it. He isn’t in his thirties wishing he could get back on stage and sing. He is just in his thirties looking sexier than ever and still being the most popular member of O-Town even though he isn’t a member anymore.

Keep posting Instagram pictures and  I will keep liking them. I am still a little mad you won’t be apart of the reunion but I guess I can forgive you…maybe.

After 10 Years O-Town Is Making A Comeback!

You know I can’t even lie, I am extremely excited for this reunion. “All Or Nothing” is probably one of the greatest songs to come out of the early 2000’s, yeah I said it! That song is seriously incredible, best song that O-Town ever put out. I wish they would sing it at my wedding! I don’t even care!

There is one thing missing from this video though, I think all avid O-Town lovers will notice it too. Ashley Parker Angel, what? Why wouldn’t they have him in this? He was the only one to make some what of a splash after the band broke up! Ashley Parker Angel was basically the Nick Carter of the group, the heartthrob. No one really knows any of the other ones. Jacob, he is known, he had dreadlocks, that is why I remember him!

Anyway, i hope that Ashley Parker Angel comes back so we can have the whole band back together for a few shows.

PS. If you guys need a gig I need someone to sing ‘All Or Nothing’ to me at any point in time.

Best Boy Bands of All Time

So today in the celebrity world it is is slow for now at least. I haven’t seen anything that has really caught my eye to write about. Kanye West was at Harvard, cool. Other than that it has been a slow day. So I decided to take it into my own hands and write about the top boybands of all time. People may complain that Jonas Brother and Hanson aren’t on the list but they aren’t a boy band. They don’t do choreographed dancing or any of that good stuff, so they didn’t make the cut.

10. Westlife- I am aware not many people in America know about these guys but they are pretty great and huge in the rest of the world. Westlife have incredible love songs and amazing voices too. They should be famous over in America but they are too good for us, too proper, that is why they made it at number 10.

09. LFO- May Rich Cronin rest in peace but before he left this world he gave us one of the best songs of all time Summer Girls. Is there any better song to bump when you want a good classic throwback song? They rapped, they sang, they danced, they were hot, they were perfect. They also gave us another great gem that people seem to forget about called Girl On TV which was written about Jennifer Love Hewitt.

08. One Direction- I was a little hesitant to put these guys on the list simply because I am convinced they will be breaking up within two years. In two years Harry Styles will be a solo artist and the rest of the guys will be like Joey, Lance, JC, and Chris, if you don’t get that reference then you are probably too young for this blog. Their songs are catchy though and in reality is that all that you need when you are in a boy band. Catchy songs, good looks, and a loyal band of fans which they have. The Directioners are almost as violent as the Beliebers, almost.

07. O-Town- This band had a very short life but they left us with the song All or Nothing which I will never be able to thank them enough for giving us. This was the original making the band, band and they were pretty good. Ashley Parker Angel was perfect and so was Jacob, then he got dreads and 13 year girls didn’t know how to handle it. They also sang about Liquid Dreams which is creepy and genius but still creepy since most of their crowd was in the young teens. Thanks O-Town and feel free to make a comeback at any time.

06. 98 Degrees- Thank the pop Gods for 98 Degrees, a four man boy band with three good looking guys. Jeff, Nick, and Drew were absolute perfection in their firemen outfits. Justin could go though, he wasn’t necessary at all but every group needs a black sheep right? Although this band tried to make a comeback I don’t think that they will ever fully come back. I just want to take a moment for the music video Hardest Thing. If you don’t remember it, I suggest you YouTube that video right this second.

05. Boyz 2 Men- I must put them in the top five because they influenced most of the boy bands that I grew up loving so much. They are also absolutely bad ass with their songs. End of the Road? Come on that song is straight fire. Then the ultimate baby making song, I’ll Make Love to You. These guys were just fire back in the 90’s and their music is still relevant to this day. I know the next thing you will do is pop in that cassette of I’ll Make Love to You and sing your hear out. You’re welcome for reminding you of great music.

04. NKOTB- These five bad boys from Boston made it possible for bands like Backstreet boys and NSYNC to become who they were. Joey, Danny, Jordan, Chris, and of course the baddest of them all Donny ruled music for a while. Of course after having hit after hit they decided to berak up and try solo careers, well Jordan and Joey did, but now they are back together and still touring. Let’s be real we are all still trying to do the dance from The Right Stuff.

03. Jackson 5- They have to make it into the top 3 simply because of a young Michael Jackson. This is what MJ who was and launched him into super stardom. Of course they were managed by his asshole of a father but that isn’t the point. The Jackson 5 brought us the King of Pop and for that we should be forever thankful.

02. NSYNC- Putting NSYNC at number 2 was easily one of the easiest choices of my life. They don’t deserve to be any lower or any higher on this list. NSYNC came otu just after Backstreet Boys and it sparked the boy band war for the ages. You either loved NSYNC or loved Backstreet Boys, no other way to put it. They gave us timeless classics like Bye Bye Bye, Gonna be Me, and Tearin’ Up My Heart, with their frosted tips and over sized clothing they stole the hearts of millions everywhere. This band also was a platform for Justin Timberlake to fly off into super stardom but he refused to recognize it for most of his solo career until recently. Even though the only two people who ever sang were JC and JT it didn’t matter simply because they had Justin Timberlake.

01. Backstreet Boys- These five guys deserve the top spot for a plethora of reasons but I will only name a few. They are celebrating their 20 year mark of being together, they had also sold more albums than any other boy band in the history of boy bands. Those are facts people and facts don’t lie. With the lead vocals being Brian, Nick, and AJ there aren’t any other voices that can compare in the boy band history. With hits like I Want It That Way, Quit Playin Games with my Heart, Larger Than Life, and then their softer side with Incomplete and Show me the meaning of being lonely, there is no way that they don’t deserve this number one spot.

Thank you for reading this list that doesn’t really mean anything and I hope you enjoy it.
