Oh the things we do as kids!

ok, so my dear friend, Joleen Tanner, calls me yesterday, laughing. She says" hey I thought of us today!" She listens to KFBK online at work and when she opened the page, there was a picture of NKOTB. For those of you who don't know who that is, it's New Kids on the Block. They were popular in the late 80's and early 90's. Well guess what? They, like every other band that started as kids, are making a comeback! I'm not sure why they think they will be better the second time around, because they weren't very good the first time! Although I have to admit I was a huge fan, well as big of a fan as you can be when you are a pentecostal kid! Joleen and I thought they were just something, they were soooo cute! LOL! Now it's hilarious to think of it, the hidden posters behind our bedroom door, we couldn't buy the tapes(yes, tapes!) so we copied their songs off the radio, and if we happened to have a friend from school who had their music we would borrow their stuff. Awwww..what memories! So I want to know, are Joleen and I the only ones in this boat? Who liked NKOTB, or any other band or artist in the 80's that is embarrassing to admit?
