Music Zone: Boy Bands Of the 90's

In the 90's, we've witnessed the rise of different boy bands. They are groups of 3 or more male singers that sing songs about girls, love and heartache. I must admit they made the entire world go "la vida loco" with the singles they released. So, for today's Music Zone, I would like to present... the most well-known Boy Bands of the 90's:

Backstreet Boys - is an American vocal group, formed in Orlando, Florida in 1993. The band originally consisted of A. J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter and Kevin Richardson. Their best single for me is "I Want It That Way".

98 Degrees - was an American adult contemporary boy band consisting of four vocalists: brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre, and Jeff Timmons. I really like their song "Because Of You".

A1 - is an English/Norwegian boyband. They were originally made up of Mark Read, Ben Adams, Christian Ingebrigtsen and Paul Marazzi. For me, the best song that I can remember with them is "Everytime".

Boyzone - an Irish Four-piece vocal pop group comprising Ronan Keating, Mikey Graham, Keith Duffy and Shane Lynch. I love their song "Picture Of You" which was the original soundtrack of Mr. Bean.

5ive - an English boyband put together in 1997 by the same team that managed the Spice Girls before they launched their career. The five members were Scott Robinson, Ritchie Neville, J Brown, Abs Breen and Sean Conlon. I'm so amused with their song "Until The Time Is Through".

'N Sync - an American boy band formed in Orlando, Florida, in 1995 and launched in Germany by BMG Ariola Munich,[2] 'N Sync consisted of JC Chasez, Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick. Surely, we were amazed when they portrayed puppets in their video "Bye Bye Bye".

Westlife - is an Irish pop group formed on 3 July 1998. The group's original lineup comprised Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily, Shane Filan and Brian McFadden. Their music genre is pop. Their most noted song for me is the remake song "Uptown Girl".

911 - a British boyband that consists of Lee Brennan, Jimmy Constable and Spike Dawbarn. The song that makes me think of them is "Love Sensation" from the movie Casper.

There are other boy bands that were introduced in the 90's but I must say the list above made their mark in the industry.
