LFOLFO was hot for, like, one minute. But while they were around, they were freaking awesome. Releasing one ridiculous, nonsensical song after another, these guys kept it light and... interesting.
98 DegreesI have two words to describe these guys: BEEF CAKES! 98 Degrees proved to have a bit more staying power than LFO, but their flame didn't burn brightly for too long, either. Though they gave us some solid '90s love songs, I think most of us appreciated them for their biceps and barbed wire tattoos (which are like, so lame now...). But they're loud and proud Cincinnati boys and Drew and Nick Lachey (brothers, obvs) just opened a bar downtown. I like celebs that remember and stay true to their roots.
BBMakI must admit, my love for BBMak still runs deep. I met them (and LFO, actually) way back in high school while working as a freelance columnist for a local newspaper. They left a permanent mark on the teenage girl that is always within me. I believe it was my first run-in with a British accent and is likely the reason it still melts me. They were so, so, so, so cute and nice, and I've been besotted by them ever since. I always waited for these guys to blow up, but they never really did. Such a shameful waste.
Boys II MenTo this day, I've never found an album I loved as much and as wholly as II. Not only did I love it way back in the '90s when it came out, but it has held up over the years to the point that, not only do I still listen to it frequently, my 5-year-old daughter has been captured by their silky, smooth harmonies as well. I also remember quickly changing the song if I was in the car with my parents and "I'll Make Love to You" came on. Ahhh, memories. It was very hard to pick one video to share, but I think this will be an acceptable choice.
