Ah! Hello!I'm all recovered from the birthday extravaganza-ness, and not quite ready for a new week - but I'm going to try anyway..because we have something else to celebrate::
The ALBUM of my CHILDHOOD turned FIFTEEN yesterday! We're going to listen to my favorite songs from the album, reminisce and just have the BEST time!
But first, the music::
1. Bye, Bye, Bye
This song was/is/always will be my JAM.
2. It's Gonna Be Me
Oh this video - with the plastic dolls. Genius.
3. No Strings Attached
Y'all. Even the good guys get burned.
4. I Thought She Knew
There are two reasons for this one:
1. I like it.
2. Chris got his solo moment. Homeboy never got his time.
And for that, a Chris shout out:
Hey boy heyyyy. Dem dreds doe.
5. This I Promise You
If you would have asked me in 6th grade what song I was going to do as my first dance at my wedding, it totally would have been this one. It's one of my favorites.
And I definitely remember trying (desperately) to learn the Spanish version as well. I definitely tried to croon this song. It was magical..what can I say?
If you don't quite remember the Spanish version -
listen here all you Latin
If you didn't listen to this CD, I really don't know how you survived your childhood.
I really don't.
And a few more things to get you through this celebration:
For all of you Sons of Anarchy AND NSYNC fans.
