Got nothing to hide no more
I don’t know where to start
So I have a confession. It is hard for me to say this but I feel like I need to get this off my chest……
Last night the new album for the Backstreet Boys came out and I went on itunes and purchased it. Oh, I know I am ashamed with myself. I can’t believe I did it. It was such an impulse. But I grew up on them. It’s so comforting… like a tattered blanket. You know you should grow up but you can’t.
I’m not even sure why I am putting this on the blog. I told Price about my idea of confessing it and he thought it was funny. Not sure how being ‘funny’ gives me enough courage to post this online.
So my love affair with the Backstreet Boys began long ago- when they were not married with kids and had not yet been to rehab. It began with a catchy pop tune and transformed into a concert going and two bedrooms covered in posters. I believe I stained some walls with blue poster tack. I used to go over a friend’s house where we would try to learn the ‘Everybody‘ dance. Luckily, this really craziness all calmed down long ago but I can’t shake the need for pop music… which makes me love Britney Spears- esp her new song 3. Plus the worst is Miley Cyrus’ ‘Party in the USA’! Damn catchy songs. I feel like I have regressed to 6th grade.
So out of impulse I bought their album on itunes. And to be honest it is not all that great. No, I am not being hard on them for my own shame but songs about kinda blah (LA Times gave it a 2 star review). Plus a song about PDA is just wrong. I miss the good songs with good dance routines…”As long as you love me“… yeah? The songs from This is Us might grow on me but so far nothing really jumps out. Time will tell.
PS- Can anyone recognize which song the title and first two lines of this post from?
