8 NSYNC Songs
We’ll Be Playing On Repeat
By Patti Sunio
Whether it’s their recent Walk Of Fame appearance together for the first time in years, or the resurgence of “it’s gonna be May!” memes on our feeds, now is the right time to playback the songs we loved from this 90s boy band.
Here’s what’s on our playlist:
BYE, BYE, BYE
Bye Bye Bye probably has the catchiest chorus ever and the dance steps are quite easy to follow. It’s the single that launched the band’s No Strings Attached album—their best one ever. The song’s music video, which shows the members as puppets, won Best Pop Video and Choreography at the 2000 MTV VMAs.
IT’S GONNA BE ME
The song survives to this day, and will perhaps see a yearly resurgence, all thanks to the way Justin Timberlake pronounces “me” as “may”, which has resulted in so many meme versions come the first of May. The band’s highest-charting single, It’s Gonna Be Me, remains yet another catchy, dance-y tune to this day.
THIS I PROMISE YOU
Back in the day, this song was overplayed and we certainly ended up growing sick of it. Maybe now’s the time for a fresh playback. This I Promise You is a favorite because it’s a far cry from their upbeat tunes. As young teens and tweens, we were pleasantly surprised seeing them in the video, clean-cut, and in cozy turtlenecks.
I WANT YOU BACK
I Want You Back is probably one of the most spoofed videos back then, and also the one most danced to. The beats are so infectious, it’s impossible to just sit still while listening to it. The video also features the members in cool choreography and stunts that can be used in street dancing or cheerleading.
