NKOTB…remember them? New Kids On The Block…yup..a boy band from Boston, Ma. It all started back in the late 80’s. I saw them on tv way back in late 88 early 89. The song which really caught my eyes & ears was You’ve got (the Right Stuff). NKOTB was the 1st band that I really like besides MJ, Madonna (we sang to Who’s that Girl, La Isla Bonita during our music class at OCS), Bananarama etc. My fave songs were from the 1st album: The Right Stuff, Hangin’ Tough.
I remember I had to get all NKOTB merchandise from buttons to file to photos. My aunt even sent me Bop mags from the states as it was expensive to buy them here in Malaysia. I didn’t know how I got my mom to buy me NKOTB’s concert videos.
Guess who was my fave grp member? hahahaha..Donnie Wahlberg…gosh maybe it was his torn jeans, shoulder length hair, leather hat & jacket….I dunno..that was so long ago..man…I was a normal 13 year old kid then….
I don’t much like their newer albums as they were influenced by hip hoppers & rap at that time. It was still new & hate looking at big mamas wearing tight micro mini skirts.
Well, I’m just going down the memory lane at the moment!
