Hanging tough

Ok, here’s the news I’m sure most of you have been waiting for for the last fifteen years…

People magazine is reporting hints of a New Kids on the Block reunion!

This may not be a bad move… all of those screaming pre-teens at their concerts in 1990 are now in their late twenties.


  1. LOL, I saw them in 1988 at the Illinois State Fair… my sister LOVED them so much. The concert was entertaining, but I have to wonder if their music will hold up if they get back together.

  2. In some strange way, I’m hoping there’s a special on TV or something. I’ll be compelled to watch. Perhaps the attraction is the same as gawking at a car wreck.

    As I recall, “Joey” was pre-pubescent at least in their early career. Those songs may not work out as well today.

    Here’s a youtube clip: http://youtube.com/watch?v=8WozaXTqnKk

  3. Oh, my! Say it isn’t true. Another teacher and I were joking last Friday that we were both ashamed to admit we still have our audiotapes of the New Kids on the Block.

  4. I can top that. I don’t remember exactly how I came to be in possession of it, but I’ve got the CD… I think it was given to me in this decade.

    I’m also ashamed to admit that I probably remember more of the lyrics than I’d care to admit. I guess that’s the whole point of “pop” though…

  5. … I seem to recall the CD being a gag gift at a Christmas party…

    and Danny sorta refuted all the talk on his MySpace page, so who knows if it’s happening or not… 🙁

  6. 1) You don’t completely overhaul a website for the fun of it.

    2) I’ve never heard the songs that are playing in the video. It’s nothing that’s been released that I know of – and it sounds way too mature for “the old days” …

    And Danny’s MySpace postings are tellingly vague.

    They’re reuniting. Just a matter of when.
