I Want it That Way

Tomorrow is the last week of the semester. This means that come Friday, I'll be able to sleep in for three whole weeks. That's right, we get three weeks of vacation!

Anyway, here's a song that I listen to every morning while driving to work. Pretty much on repeat. And I sing along. Loudly. Each time I listen I try to alternate which BSB harmony to sing along to. (Except for Howie's. Never been a fan of his.) (Reading this back, I realize I sound like a huge nerd. I'm okay with that.)

I was a huge BSB fan when I was younger. (In case you were wondering my favorite was, and still is, AJ.) I think when you're thirteen years old you don't really try to find a meaning behind the song. Well now I'm 29 and I can tell you that I have no effing idea what this song is about. Which way are they talking about? Because at first he wants it that way, then she wants it that way and then, just to make it more confusing, he never wants to hear her say that she wants it that way. What the what?!

(Apparently I'm not the only one who has questioned the meaning of this song.)

So here's the video. (Nice airplane, guys.) If you're able to make any sense of it, please, for the love of all that is holy, let me know.

  1. I clearly remember that stage in your life. Didn't you have every single BSB poster in your room? Together with those Got Milk magazine advertisements. I do like them too. But my favorite song is Quit Playing Games. Is my memory correct and you went to see them in concert at the Concord Pavilion?
