When I was in the 5th grade I was a die hard NKOTB (New Kids on the Block, for those of you born in the 90s) fan. I had a sweatshirt, a giant poster and all of their tapes. I would cuddle my ghetto blaster and let the boys croon me to sleep. I believe that, at one point, I even had an NKOTB doll.
Jordan was my favourite and my first real crush. My poor little heart was broken when it came out that he was gay.
Twenty one years later I’m still secretly their biggest fan. I realized this morning that I could probably download all of their songs on iTunes. I wonder if they will sound the same to my 30-something ears?
