I can’t believe I forgot to post this! All I can say is that it has been a very busy week and somehow I never scheduled today’s post. Anyway, unless you’ve lived in a cave this past week, you know that The Spice Girls and the Backstreet Boys might be going on a tour together next year. It is like the 90’s threw up all over the 21st Century and might be the only reason to actually say Awesomesauce! Because it is so out of left field. Who would ever put those two groups together? So, in celebration, I’ve got a twofer for you today. First, it is 2 Become 1, which is probably my favorite Spice Girls song. When I went searching for this video on youtube, I realized how awful it was. What is with the weird NYC backdrop? Why does Sporty Spice look homeless? What the hell happened to Ginger’s eyebrows to make her look angry all the time? Don’t believe me? Check it out below.
I was a huge Backstreet Boys fan back in 1998 and I had the first 2 CD’s (actually, my Dad bought the first one for himself–from Sam Goode–and I stole it from him). Before I got the CD’s, I taped my favorite songs off of the radio (I remember the cassette this one was on also included Waiting for Tonight by JLo). The sad thing is that I have just as many questions about this video as I had about the other one. Was Nick meant to look like a girl in half the video? What was with the awful bleach blonde dye in AJ’s hair? Why were they singing in a huge birth control container? It just boggles the mind.
