We've reached the halfway point of the workweek and I don't think Friday afternoon can get here any faster. Ugh. Aside from that, today is all about the letter S.
S is for "Step By Step" and "The Seed (2.0)"
"Step By Step" - New Kids on the Block
NKOTB were my first boy band. I loved them. I remember having a VHS tape of one of their concert specials and I watched that thing religiously. I wanted to be serenaded by Joey. Mmmm. I guess Jordan and Donny were pretty steamy too. The other two...not so much. Oh well. "Step By Step" is a fun track. It doesn't mean much, but it's catchy.
*Fun Fact: "Step By Step" is the best-selling single for NKOTB. It was voted #4 in a Smash Hits poll of "Best Boyband Songs...Ever" and is also on the list of About.com's 30 Guilty Pleasures.
"The Seed (2.0)" - The Roots
Such a great song. Great beat. Great vibe. So chill. I first discovered this song while watching the Mandy Moore flick Chasing Liberty...don't judge :) A remix of the original track, "The Seed (2.0)" is off the band's fifth studio album, Phrenology. It's a great blend of rock, funk, and hip hop. But then you actually read the lyrics and whoa nelly! It's a dirty song!!!
*Lyrics: "I don't ask, for much these days / And I don't bitch and whine if I don't get my way / I only want to fertilize another behind my lover's back / I sit and watch it grow standin' where I'm at"
What are some of your favorite S songs? "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay" is a good one...and so many others!
