You wanna know what’s playing (on repeat) on my iPod right now? New Kids On The Block’s latest single, “Summertime”.
I completely L O V E that song!
I do admit that it is weird to hear grown men in their 30s (and 40s?) belt out a song about summer love but it’s so catchy, it’s hard not to like it, even a little bit.
What I like about the song is that it sounds like a NKOTB song. I think they were very clever in starting the song the way they do because the intro is a NKOTB piano/ballad classic. I love Jordan Knight and Joey McIntyre voices in this song. I almost forgot how I love their voices. In fact, I think Donnie Wahlberg sounds pretty good in this song too.
I was contemplating whether I should buy the CD or not once it is out in September. After hearing their second single, I think I just WILL.
I almost had a heart attack when I went to NKOTB’s website and learned that they have a new duet err… single with Ne-yo called errr… Single. I mean, wow, Ne-yo!
I’m listening to the song right now on Youtube. I feel like smiling and crying at the same time. What a beautiful song. Just google NKOTB + Ne-yo and you’ll see a video there. It’s not the official video; just the song with lyrics.
Ok, so maybe Ne-yo sang the most and sounded better than all the Boys put together but omg… I’m in love the harmonisation!
I think I heard Jordan, Joey and Donnie and they all sounded wonderful.
Ok. I’m off to watch more videos of NKOTB on youtube. Later!
