I’ve been wanting to do this post for AGES. But I’d been procrastinating, until now. A conversation with a dear friend of mine on our shared love for the 90s boybands galvanized me into action!
For those of us who were born in the early 80s would relate to this. We brought in the 90s as googly-eyed, gushing teenagers…just in time to fall head over heels for all that lovey-dovey romanticism, in the way that ONLY cute guys in boybands can make you feel!
Here are a few that are dear to me and took me through high school (in no particular order)…filling me with bitter-sweet nostalgia, bringing to the surface snippets of memories that I thought I had forgotten!
Boyzone will never been the same with out Stephen Gately (RIP). But HOW can I ever forget them; they that crooned the Words that filled my teenage dreams!
I’d give anything to fly to the moon and back….again!
Only I know how much of day-dreaming I’ve done listening to their music…and I want(ed) it that way!
No one but Westlife can tell you better how seasons in the sun went down back then.
I just couldn’t say bye,bye,bye to them, coz their music is all I ever wanted.
They did relight my fire, I can tell you that!
I’ve spent countless hours wondering about my Invisible Man…thanks to them! I do cherish them.
If ya gettin down baby….we will rock you.

And I waited for some one to paint his love for me! (Sigh)
Boys II Men
Left me wondering who will get down on bended knee…for me…eventually.
There’s no flying by… you just gotta stop and listen.
All 4 One
Yes, I patiently waited for someone to love me like that.
These are just a few of my personal faves. For those of you who were 90s teens like me, do share your favourites too!
