Yes, I have written about how both 98 Degrees and O-Town are underrated boy bands but there is one band that I haven’t talked about. LFO, Lyte Funkie Ones, the boy band from Boston.
They had a mix of pop and rap and they were absolute fire. Most people only know their song “Summer Girls” but they had at least a few other bops. How can you forget about “Every Other Time” or “Girl On TV” pop classics that seem to be passed over.
As a band they sold over 4 million albums worldwide.
Unfortunately Rich Cronin passed away in 2010 due to leukemia but it looks like Devin and Brad are putting together some new music.
Now let’s take a trip down memory lane to the LFO bops you forgot you knew.
West Side Story
I Don’t Want To Kiss You Goodnight
Every Other Time
Girl On TV
So I just want to take a moment and thank LFO for the bops and I am sorry people don’t put respect on your name when talking about 90’s and early 2000’s pop music.
Celine Dion is an absolute music God. If you don’t think so you can leave because this blog isn’t for you, that’s for sure. I mean it’s okay to not like her music but if you can’t admit that she is one of the best females to ever be in the music business, you’re wrong.
She is a five time Grammy winner, she gave a boost to Las Vegas with her residency, and she has sold over 220 million albums world wide. She is also kind of a weirdo which makes me love her even more.
The past few years haven’t been easy on Celine but she has never lost her smile, something we should all appreciate.
Celine is absolutely an icon, she pounds her chest while she sings, and I remember seeing an interview that she will spend a lot of time with fans because they deserve it. So that makes her even more of a legend because she appreciates fans.
Happy birthday Celine and I want to celebrate by posting my top five favorite Celine songs of all time. It was hard to narrow down five but I was able to do it.
Don’t hate on the order of my list either, okay? Different strokes for different folks.
As most people know, women are marching across the country today for equal opportunities as men. I am not going to dive into it all, if you don’t agree with me that’s fine. I am not here to argue politics, I am here to help you with a list of songs that will pump you up as you march.
You can march for whatever reasons you want, but it is important that you speak up.

Let me be clear with something, I genuinely believe that 98 Degrees was one of, is one of the most underrated boy bands of all time. The harmonies that Nick, Jeff, Justin, and Drew were able to come up were absolutely great. I mean they were also extremely good looking so that was obviously just another plus with their band.
Listen, I loved Backstreet Boys, don’t get me wrong but I would say that 98 Degrees was a close second in my favorite boy bands of the late 90’s and early 2000’s. I still love to bop to them now though.
So I decided to put together my top ten favorite songs, just to remind everyone that they are in fact incredible vocalists.
10. True To Your Heart
9. Invisible Man
8. I Do (Cherish You)
7. Heat It Up
6.He’ll Never Be
4. Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)
3. Because Of You

1. My Everything
Now that I have brought you through nostalgia town, I would like you share this with your friends.
We can’t let the legendary 98 Degrees go down without the respect they deserve.
It may be Christmas but today we lost an absolute legend. George Michael was one of a kind and had so many hits it is truly hard to say which one is best. Between his solo career and being in WHAM, there are many songs to choose from.
Today, George Michael passed away at his home at the young age of 53 years old. There has been no other information given other than that he passed away peacefully at his home.
Here are his ten best songs, let’s take a moment to appreciate all that he gave to the music community.
9. One More Try
8. I Want Your Sex
7. Last Christmas
5. Father Figure
4. Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me (Duet with Elton John)
3. Careless Whisper
2. Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go
You will be greatly missed, thank you for all of the music you brought into this world!
The only good thing about 2016 was JoJo making her big comeback. This year has been a huge dumpster fire and ‘Mad Love’ helped make it better. For years I have been waiting for this comeback and now that it is finally here, we can celebrate.
Today the talented singer turned 26 and what better way to celebrate this incredible vocalist than by well, showing off her vocal performances.
Below I put together a list of my top ten JoJo songs, they may be different from yours but let’s respect each other. Let’s all just agree that JoJo is absolutely magical.
10. When Love Hurts
8. Leave Get Out
6. Too Little Too Late
5. Coming For You
4. Like This
3. Fuck Apologies
1. Marvin’s Room
So there you have it! Those are my top ten must haves when it comes to JoJo songs. Let’s be real, she has a ton of great ones but I had to narrow them down.
Maybe when JoJo comes to Boston she will let me interview her? We can all hope, right?
Happy birthday and I can’t wait to hear more new music!
