90’s Boys – They Rock!

Today I will talk about boys that I also like but I only knew few songs about them. They are well-known at time in my country. I like their song and they are worth to listen. Here they are.

Code Red

How I met:  This is Our Song *

“This is our song

This is the song we’ll remember forever and ever

It means to you what it means to me

So from this moment on

We know this is our song”

I like this song, couldn’t find the official video. Not remember how was the video, too. I just remember it was romantic song that I often heard on MTV Getar Cinta, one of popular TV program at that time.

My favourite song: The other song that I like was the song that they sing with one of Indonesian artist, Alda. She already die years ago, but I love her song. I can’t find the original clip on YouTube. Can you help me? They also collaborate with other singer, but it wasn’t Alda. And, I prefer the Alda version. Here is the Alda version but the clip was the Robbie William’s clip We Can Make It *

And here is the full lyric:

“I’ve been waiting for a girl like you to come my way

And I’ve been waiting for a girl to shine some light on my day

And I’ve been searching for that someone who can understand me

Someone who is not afraid to laugh or cry and share that with me

 

And I’ve been waiting for a boy like you to hold my hand

And I’ve been waiting for a boy like you to give me a kiss

And I’ve been longing for the feeling of being complete

And you have shown me just how good love is when two minds meet

I know I know I know
-Chorus-

We can make it if we try

We can make it you and I

We can

We can make it if we try

We can

A love like our’s can’t be denied

We can make it if we try

If we believe in you and I

We can

We can make it if we try

We can

A love like our’s can’t be denied
Could you be the kind to love unconditionally

And could you be the kind to overlook the faults in me

We don’t have to last forever,just for the rest of our lifetime

If you’re feeling what I’m feeling,then this is the right time
Bridge

Well I guess that it was worth the waiting

Cause now you see what you mean to me

Well it’s hard, there’ll be no hesitating

If I was blind,I’ll  still see you as mine

 

Sadly, I can’t find their new looks 😦 I don’t get much info about them from google, too. So, maybe anyone could help?

Hanson

MmmBop

“You have so many relationships in this life

Only one or two will last

You go through all this pain and strife

Then you turn your back and they’re gone so fast

And they’re gone so fast

So hold on to the ones who really care

In the end they’ll be the only ones there

When you get old and start losing your hair

Can you tell me who will still care?”

You can say by watching their video, how fun they are. Made me wish to had brothers. It must be fun, play and do stuff with your brothers.

They are similar with The Moffatts. Yeah, they are brother. Zac, the youngest one as the guitarist. Issac as bassist. Taylor as keyboardist and vocalist. I only know this song and then I know The Moffatts, I prefer The Moffats that time :p

And here’s their new looks:

From what I search, they still exist till now. They get along together, already married and had kids. Here’s their website: Hanson *

911

All I Want is You *

“All you gotta do is believe in me you’ll find sanctuary

Just one chance is all I need to prove that you and I

Are forever meant to be”

Though 911 was quite popular in my country, I only remember this song from them. Maybe I know the other song, but not sure or forget. Here’s their facebook fan page: 911 *

 

5ive

I met and like them when they released Until The Time is Through * . I just noticed that the music was bored, somehow. Maybe just, too easy? But I like the lyric.

“Now and forever

Until the time is through

I can’t believe it

I don’t know where to start (No, baby)

So many questions

Deep inside my heart

Give me a moment before you go

There’s something you ought to know

Baby now and forever

Until the time is through, I’ll be standing here

Waiting and never give up my faith in you

Trying to make it clear

Without your love I’d be half a man

Maybe one day you’ll understand

Now and forever ,until the time is through

I’ll be waiting

How can I tell you, so that you can see

(You know that)

Love has a meaning when you are here with me

There is no one to comfort me

Here in my cold reality

I’m searching for words

What can I say

To make you see”

I also like when they do cover to Queen’s song, We Will Rock You *.Honestly, I knew this song from Five. When I knew it was Queen’s, I just can think that Five was great. They could made nice cover. I like the original version, I like Five version.

A1

Here’s my favourite song from A1 : Everytime *

“Everytime I kiss I see you need

And everytime I cry I see your smile and

Everytime I close my eyes I realize

Everytime I hold your hands in mine

The sweetest thing my heart could ever find

And I have never felt this way

Since the day I gave your love away”

From what I knew, they were popular with “Like a Rose” but I prefer this song and this is my favourite song. Though sometimes when I said how I like this song, people often mistaken with Everytime by Britney Spears.

I heard that they made comeback and already did world tour.

Okay, that’s all I think for the 90’s boys series.

I might add some new information or else, but that’s all I got for now. If you have any suggestion, feel free to let me know. Hope you enjoy!

Cheers!

90’s Boys – No Matter What

Today I will share my thoughts about the other boyband, the vocal group that I recognize from their ‘maturity’. From the very first, I already known them as the ‘mature’ group. Unlike Backstreet Boys that ‘young and fresh’, they had different aura. Maybe they were had different fans target. But, I enjoy it, anyway. Meet Boyzone *

How I met:   A Different Beat *

What I remember, this song was used to some causes. I forgot what, but I just remember I like the video. I like the ‘eee aaa ooo’ thing. Also, it had good point.

“Humanity’s lost face

Let’s understand its grace

Each day one at a time

Each life, including mine

Let’s take a stand

And look around us now, people “

My favourite songs:

1. No Matter What *

“No matter what they tell us

No matter what they do

No matter what they teach us

What we believe is true”

I love the beat. I feel connected with the words. When we are in love, we might feel like this, right? No matter what, the one that we love always be the best.

2. All that I Need *

“You’re the air that I breathe

Girl you’re all that I need

And I want to thank you, lady

You’re the words that I read

You’re the light that I see

And your love is all that I need”

This song was about boy that just realize that he already met the perfect one. He not notice it before, but by time, he know it.

3. Everyday I Love You *

One of everlasting love songs for me. This song said enough about relationship. It’s great song to express how special someone in our love. And how with them, we become the best of us. I will give you the full lyrics here.

“I don’t know, but I believe

That some things were meant to be

And that you make a better me

Everyday I love you

 

I never thought that dreams came true

But you show me that they do

You know that I learn something new

Everyday I love you

 

’cause I believe that destiny

Is out of our control (don’t you know that I do)

And you never live until you love

With all your heart and soul

It’s a touch when I feel bad

It’s a smile when I get mad

All the little things I am

Everyday I love you

 

Everyday I love you more

Everyday I love you

 

’cause I believe that destiny

Is out of our control (don’t you know that I do)

And you never live until you love

With all your heart and soul

 

If I asked would you say yes?

Together we’re the very best

I know that I am truly blessed

Everyday I love you

And I’ll give you my best

Everyday I love you”

 

– Extra track : I Love the Way You Love Me *

This song was cover from Eric Martin’s. The original one was released on 1993, and they cover this song about 1998. Honestly, I prefer the original song. But I like Boyzone version, too. I like the song, that’s the main point.

“I love the way you love me

Strong and wild, slow and easy

Heart and soul so completely, I love the way you love me”

 

My favourite one:  Ronan Keating

I love him cause I thought he was the former singer, here. I guess he always be the starter. Am I right?

I feel like he had not much differences by times, I also not sure if it was his old or new pic. Well, maybe the best point of him was that. He seems like not getting older.

I like his pose here. I like his eyes. I love his voice. He made some solo project, too. My favourite song was If Tomorrow Never Come.

Cheers!

90’s Boys – They Took My Heart Away

Actually, I want to keep this boys as the closure, but I think I can’t wait any longer. I need to help, -at least contribute- the mission from Indonesian fans, to bring them to Jakarta. This boys are going to Indonesia, 3 cities, but not to Jakarta 😦 Yes, they are Michael Learns to Rock * .My mom, my sis and me -of course- are so in love with their songs. Jascha deep voice, their sentimental lyrics, their easy listening music. They are that kind of boys in your dream. They could made you feel love at the first sight, and deeper each day. They start their music career at 80’s period, but they success with their international album early 90’s.

How I met : I’m Gonna Be Around *

I find lyric of this song on my sis’ notebook. She wrote in with many ♥ around the lyrics. I thought, it must some cute love song. And, I wasn’t wrong. I watch the video on TV, remember it was the song that my sis wrote in her notebook. I’m not sure it was the video that I saw before. I really want to learn guitar cause I see Jascha play guitar, so cool. I thought it would be great if I could play guitar, too.

“I’m gonna love you till the end

I’m gonna be your very true friend

I wanna share your ups and downs

I’m gonna be around”

My favourite songs:

1. You Took My Heart Away *

“Living in a world so cold

You are there to warm my soul

You came to mend a broken heart

You gave my life a brand new start and now

I’m in love

You took my heart away

when my whole world was grey

You gave me everything,

a little bit more

And when it’s cold at night

and you sleep by my side,

you’ve become the meaning of my life”

I don’t know, I just thought this song won’t be the same if not wasn’t sing by Jascha. It just, feel so right when he was the one who sing.

2. Take Me to Your Heart *

Not much of my friend know MLTR, but most of my friend like this song. Post this song as status. Made me a bit upset, how come you know this song but not know MLTR? But, I guess I no wonder why they pick this song to express how in love they are.

“Tell me where do I find someone like your girl

Take me to your heart, take me to your soul

Give me your hand before I’m old

Show me what love is haven’t got clue

Show me that one those can be true

They said nothing last forever, we’re only here today

Love is now or never bring me far away”

3. That’s Why (You Go Away) *

This is my official broken-heart theme song. I really want to made story based on this song, but I’m kinda afraid that it would be too dramatic. Well, maybe someday I would.

“Love is one big illusion

I should try to forget

But there’s something left in my head..”

My favourite video:  Anyway You Want It *

This is their newest video. I think the main reason why I love this video the most is because I missed them so much. I just found them after years via Facebook fan page months ago and follow them on twitter (they followed me back! ♥)

And the other reason why I love this, usually, when some band “comeback” it was not as good as before, but it not happened to them. Their song still awesome and not just bring back memories, but like I said,

“They totally took my heart away”

My favourite one:  Jascha Richter

I told you that I love his deep voice. I ‘ve heard some guys sing MLTR song, but it never feel the same with Jascha. His voice was so adorable, for me. Good-looking, wonderful voice, appreciate his fans. Could you resist this boy?

and this is the now Jascha:

I stole that pic from his twitter profile :p

If you want to follow him on twitter: @Jascha_Richter *

also follow : @OFFICIALMLTR *

Like their facebook fan page: michaellearnstorock *

Subcribe them on YouTube: officialMLTRtube *

and, last but not least. Please..

Even though I can’t attend their concert, it must be great, feels at the same city with them. And would be nice for my friends, the MLTR fans in Jakarta. Hope they could bring MLTR to Jakarta. Can’t wait!

Cheers!

90’s Boys – More Than Words

Yes, I know that Extreme was the one that made the song, but I knew this song from Westlife * .And I pick that as title cause I think my love to them was “More Than Words” at that time. I bought any magazine, tabloid, anything that related to them (with my dad permit, sure, I was only 10 when I like them)

How I metIf I Let You Go

I’ve heard their name so many times before. They was popular because of their song, “Swear It Again” But me as kids, dislike their video clip which looks boring for me. I remember, each time I see the video begin on MTV, I switched the channel. I don’t like, cause the starting sounds boring for me. The settings also not interesting. And when I see this clip (If I Let You Go) I fall in love with this boys. I love the idea that they play at the beach. I love the video, love the music and I start to fall in love with them.

My favourite song

I already said that I was their “little” fans, so it was hard to pick only one. But I already choose what I mostly like. Here’s the list:

1. What Makes A Man *

First, I love the video. I like the view, I like their classy style. Somehow, I became obsessed with the house. The furniture was awesome. Then, I understand the lyrics. I feel it was touchy. I have no idea why this song was not as success as their other songs.

Let me quote my favourite part,

“Other girls will come along, they always do.

But what’s the point when all I ever want is you, tell me..

Tell me what makes a man wanna give you all his heart

Smile when you’re around and cry when you’re apart

If you know what makes a man, wanna love you the way I do

Girl,you gotta let me know

So I can get over you..”

2. Fool Again *

Again, I like the video. I like their conversation at the first. And, I like they at the top of the building. I think it was such their trademark. They love height, I guess. And, I love the lyrics, now.

“Baby, you should’ve called me when you were lonely

When you needed me to be there

Sadly, you never gave me to many chances

To show you how much I care

I should’ve seen it coming, I’ve should read the sign

Anyway, I guess it’s over

Can’t believe that I am fool again, I thought this love would never end

How was I to know, you never told me..”

Ah, my favourite part also when Mark do the solo, “about the pain and the tears, ohh.. ohh…”

And then, “if I could I would turn back at time..”

3. More Than Words *

I think it was the better that I could find. They not have the official video, I guess. I like this song so much. I firstly saw they sing this song was at some video, they do just like home concert. They sit together, Kian play the guitar. I can’t help but love them more. Am not saying that their version was better than Extreme cause I like both. It just me that love Westlife too much, I think.

My favourite video: Queen of My Heart * and  My Love *

I hardly decide, but I have to decide and pick these two. Why these become my favourite video? Cause they look princely at the Queen of My Heart and I really into them, start collecting their poster, pin-up, since they release My Love.

My favourite one Nicky Byrne

Well, maybe I have “Nick”-syndrome. But, I love his cute eyes.

This is the picture to let you know why I love him:

Well, I just realize that his last name was a bit hard to spell, for me. I have to make sure that I not misspell. When I was kid, I can remember his full name correctly. Guess it was age talking.

And, here is Nicky now:

Isn’t he still look lovely? ♥

You can follow him on twitter: @nickybyrneoffic *

And for the bonus, if you too lazy to open their web, here I give you their pic:
I know, this pic remind you with One Direction pic, right? If am not mistaken, it was just British style, take pic at the phone box. One Direction or Westlife? No comment.

Hope you enjoy this post!

Cheers!

90’s Boys – My Very First Crush

Though I wasn’t even become teenager when they become popular, I love 90’s boybands so much. I think it must be affected by the fact that my sister was 7 years older than me. However, I not only love 90’s songs, I also love songs that popular at 80’s, 70’s.. I prefer the oldies, clearly.

Some of you might wonder why I pick “My Very First Crush” as the title today. It because today I will share about  Backstreet Boys * .I’m sure many of girls like them, too. And agree that they are worth to be the very first crush.

How I metAs Long As You Love Me *

I watched this video on MTV. I like to pretend my self as the girls, watching them do the act. I love to sing this song though I was about 8 or 9 years old. I have no idea what this song about, but I memorize the lyrics well. And now, I think I can’t complain if my nephew and niece sings “What Makes You Beautiful” so well.

My favourite VideoQuit Playing Games with My Heart *

I love play water (more) after watch this video. And know, I feel like “Oh God, why..” My childhood.. But, I love this video more when I watch it now. They are, wow.. The other reason why I love this video, I love the song, too. It was easy-listening. Though before I not understand enough the meaning, I love to sing, “Quit playing games with my heart.. with my heart.. with my heart..” Now, I think I can’t sing not “too attached”.

My favourite songs:

1. All I Have to Give *

Should I explain why I love this song? Okay, here’s the clue:

“But my love is all I have to give, without you I don’t think I can live

I wish I could give the world to you

But love is all I have to give..”

2. I’ll Never Break Your Heart *

Really? You need explanation, again?

“I’ll never break your heart..

I’ll never make you cry,

I’d rather die than live without you

I’ll give you all of me

Honey, there’s no lie..”

3. Incomplete *

This song was release 2000’s, around 2005. But I like it, anyway. Not recommended to listen if you are on broken-heart mode. Could made you feel worse, but.. Sometimes, you prefer to sing a song that could express what you feel, right?

“I’d try to go on like I never knew you

I’m awake but my world is half asleep

I pray for this heart to be unbroken

But without you all I’m going to be is incomplete”

My favourite one: Nick Carter, for sure!

This is Nick before:

And this is Nick, now:

I wish it not ‘photoshop’ speaking..

If you love him too, you can visit his website: nickcarter * or follow him on twitter: @nickcarter *

Now, I hope you not wonder anymore why I have crush on him before.

Cheers!
