Playlist Thursday – Boy Bands

Thursday may just be my new favourite day of the week because it’s Playlist Thursday with Pavement Runner.

It’s easy to participate: Every Thursday create a list composed of 3 songs that can, or should be, added to your workout playlist following this simple format:

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.)
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.

Before each song include: Artist, Title, Side Note: (Anything you want to say about the song) Quotable: (line from the song)

This week Pavement Runner is leaving it up to us to decide our own theme. Yep, it’s Viewer’s Choice week. With so many different themes to choose from I decided to go with the Boy Bands. I loved them growing-up and still get a twinge of fan girl love when new cuties hit the airwaves. Guilty as charged.

Something Old

Artist: New Kids on the Block

Title: Step by Step

Side Note: What girl wasn’t in love with the New Kids? OK, so I’m sure there were some of you but I definitely wasn’t one of them. Donnie was my favourite and I had the pillow case to prove it. I never got to see them in concert at the height of their career but in 2009  I had my chance. They may go by NKOTB now but they knew we were there to hear the oldies and boy did they deliver.

Quotable: “Step by step, oooh baby, gonna get to you girl. Step by step, oooh baby, really want you in my world.”

Something New

Artist: One Direction

Title: Live While We’re Young

Side Note: The first time I listened to one of One Direction’s songs was on YouTube and my husband was sitting next to me. He instantly made fun of me and was bugging me that my heart was melting in front of his eyes. What can I say, the boy bands can still pull me in. Oh, and if I *had* to choose, I’d go with that cute blonde boy from Ireland :)

Quotable: “Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy til we see the sun. I know we only met but let’s pretend it’s love.”

Something to Consider

Artist: Bell Biv DeVoe

Title: Poison

Side Note: Technically, Bell Biv DeVoe is a R&B/hip-hop group BUT since all three members were in the boy band New Edition I decided to include them here. Plus, this song brings back memories of Jr. High.

Quotable: “Girl I must warn you, I sense something strange in my mind. Situation is serious, let’s cure it because we’re running out of time.”

Head on over and check out the themes everyone else chose this week.

Thanks again for the fun Pavement Runner!

Boy bands: yay or nay?


  1. Not a fan of the lyrics to 1D of the “Live While We’re Young”, but I love their other songs…especially “One Thing” – so cute!

    • I like the beat of this song for running but the lyrics are just a tad different from their other two hits. Then again, I still shake my head thinking about some of the things I used to listen to (and watch) as a kid/pre-teen/teen :)

  2. Love the 2 older songs! Poison is one of those songs that I will ALWAYS sing along too. And NKOTB? OMG. I was obsessed when I was a little girl! I even had bedsheets with their faces. #NotEvenEmbarrassed.

    One Direction is growing on me. ;)

  3. Boy bands are my KRYPTONITE.

  4. New Kids On The Block!!!!

  5. Poison = one of the best songs EVER!


  6. I could do approximately 1000 boyband posts… <3 This!

  7. hahaha…. great list. I have a one direction song on my playlist as well… damnit.

  8. “Never trust a big butt & a smile.” LOVE Bell Biv DeVoe!!

  9. My boys bands are a little earlier vintage (Duran Duran anyone?) I have to admit I still have a few NSync on my playlist.

  10. bahahahahahaha – I have almost identical people on mine! I almost picked step by step funny enough!
