Back in the 90s, boy bands (and girl groups) dominated the music scene and the charts. Thanks to their God-given looks and talent, these male crooners were a staple in our lives during the latter part of the decade. Sure, boy bands of today may emulate these qualities, but boy bands from yesteryears were known not only for their voices but also their choreographies.
Some of the boy bands that we religiously listened to were Westlife and Boyzone; with 5 members each, there were plenty of boys to choose from! Thanks to Brian McFadden of Westlife and Keith Duffy of Boyzone, we can now achieve that boy band dream experience when they perform as Boyzlife here in Manila this December 4!
In honor of the larger than life group, listen to some of their throwback hits to get you hyped for their upcoming show.
From their debut album Said and Done, So Good is that typical boyband song (complete with the infectious hook and poppy tunes) that made us hop and bop back when it was released.
Swear It Again
Westlife’s Swear It Again is the quintessential wedding song that made us weep and at the same time, swoon (up until now tbh).
Picture of You
Who could forget this song? Picture of You was the main theme song for the movie Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie. The music video for the song even featured the ever funny Rowan Atkinson as the lovable Mr. Bean.
My Love was basically on repeat and is probably one of the most played songs during the turn of the century.
All That I Need
Admit it boys: All That I Need was the song you used when you wanted your crushes to say yes to you.
Ever been cheated? Westlife was there to pick us up and sang our feelings out during our down (and ugly) times.
Baby Can I Hold You
Originally sung by Tracy Chapman, Boyzone’s version of Baby Can I Hold You literally made us want to have our own boy (zone).
Originally from Billy Joel, Westlife’s version of Uptown Girl is just the right mix of poppy and charming.
