    I don’t think I seen Backstreet Boys music videos when I was younger cuz I didn’t watch mtv when it was still a music video channel. But I’m old enough to have watched it when it came out. Things like that make me feel old and now Backstreet Boys is stuck in my head

    i think i will always choose mr.brightside if its being compared to another song (well i guess it will vary) but its just mr.brightside is such a good song tbh its the kind of song that even non-band lovers will know or will like and everyone can just sing along and it feels as if you dont have to be a prodigy or a good singer to sing mr.brightside and it also feels like you can sing mr.brightside in a serious way or a joking way but it'll still sound good idk! i have a point but i just cant put it properly into words!! 😭😭😭

    Somehow, I'm not very surprised by your choices, despite them being different from mine. I don't know if you are swedish (you do seem to be), but if you are, I'm even less surprised by your choices! I can't quite explain why, but american pop music has been so heavily influenced by swedish production that I can't be surprised swedish musicians/producers would prefer it to british music. Also, the lyrical content in songs like "I want it that way" is beyond appalling, though I don't mean to say it is a bad song. It's definitely more cringe worthy to me than the Spice Girls video, but still quality pop music for its era.
