7 Ways 90’s Boy Bands Lied To Us

As a teenage girl in the 90’s, boy band songs were how I learned about love…almost 20 years later I have uncovered their lies!!

7. WhenThe Lights Go Out - 5ive

The Lines - When I flick da switch, Make ya hips wanna dip now,I can get you off, Cos I’m ready and equipped now, Swing for me baby give me all that you got,
Never wanna stop cos ya make me feel hot

The LIE - This is not so much a lie it’s mostly me JUST realizing how dirty these lyrics actually are….and to think I used to sing along to this when I was all young and innocent!!

6. As Long As You Love Me - Backstreet Boys

The Line - I don’t care who you are, where your from, what you did as long as you love me!

The LIE - really? REALLY?? You don’t care what I did

5. I Do - 98 Degrees

The Line - All that I’ll ever need Is in your eyes

The LIE - So basically all you have to do is look in my eyes and your whole life is complete…wow that’s crazy!

4. All That I Need - Boyzone

The Line -Girl when you walked down that door Left a hole in my heart

The LIE - Ummm a hole in your heart sounds more like an urgent medical condition!!! Stop calling me and call a doctor!!

3. Step By Step - New Kids On The Block

The Lines -
(Danny) Step one, we can have lots of fun
(Donnie) Step two, there’s so much we can do
(Jordan) Step three, it’s just you for me
(Joe) Step four, I can give you more
(Jon) Step five, don’t you know that the time has arrived

The LIE - Well all of these sound like its going to lead to sex rather than lead to a romantic picnic.

2. God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You - NSYNC

The Lines - When I look into your eyes, I know that it’s true, God must have spent…
A little more time on you

The LIE - This line just gives the average 90’s teenage girl a very unrealistic view on how boys think!! I love it but I’ve never heard any girl say that her boyfriend said this to her!

1. I’ll Never Break Your Heart - Backstreet Boys

The Line - I’ll never break your heart, I’ll never make you cry

The LIE - Considering that teenage girls spend 90% of their time crying over a boy I am confident in saying that all of this is a big fat lie!!!

Shame on you 90’s Boy Bands! Shame. On. You!!
