How did anyone go unfucked in the late ’90s when we were submerged in a soup of romantic ballads about taking relationships to the next level? Boy bands like the Backstreet Boys made it so easy! They spelled out how to get laid. You just have to lie. Or, I mean, talk about your emotions. Also, do some synchronized dances. It’s not like they dressed well! But there’s more to this five-part harmony vocal group than their weird, enormous jeans. There’s Swedish record producer Max Martin who wrote all their hits. “I Want It That Way,” “Quit Playing Games With my Heart,” “Everybody,” all these songs are perfectly-balanced pop classics and I will take any opportunity to dance like a fool under laser lights to their fearsome symmetry.
