If you’re an 80’s or 90’s kid, you’ll know that the Backstreet Boys are truly worth the hype. A BSB song coming on at any moment could instantly lighten up the mood. A young boyband singing about their feelings, with dance moves and super hummable lyrics? Sign us up! It’s no surprise that they still play numerous BSB songs out at clubs and bars today. After all, they really will never get old.
The ever-so-famous boyband will be performing in Manila on the 28th of October as part of their DNA World Tour at the Mall of Asia Arena, brought to us by MMI Live. Until you get to see them live, here are 8 songs that you’re irresistibly going to be humming along to with a smile on your face whether you’re really getting into it or just getting nostalgic over the good ol’ days! We bet it’ll be the former though.
I Want It That Way
This is likely their BIGGEST hit… and it just turned 20 this April. Do you feel old yet? In all seriousness though, come on, can you really not sing along to this one? It’s almost physically impossible. The energy of the song is so contagious, that the second it comes on, everyone that’s around starts singing along, and you’re not going to be that one person that’s not singing.
Imagine being a fangirl back in the 90’s hearing this song. Now tell us, wouldn’t that make your heart even just a little bit giddy? Listening to all the BSB serenading you and telling you they they’ll be the ones who will make all your sorrows undone? That thought alone should crack a smile on your face.
Upon hearing this song, you’d probably not guess that it’s the BSB! This one is from their new album, DNA. It’s definitely not the same as old school BSB but it’s really good in its own way, and really sweet too! It’s a version of the boyband that’s all grown up, and appealing to a wider audience. It may not be so familiar to you yet, but trust us, after the first time you hear the song, there’s no way you’re not going to get LSS.

Larger Than Life
Another one from their most popular album, Millennium, which sold over 10 million copies and managed to stay on the Top 40 even after that, “Larger Than Life” has got to make the cut for the list of some of the BSB’s best songs. Additionally, because they wrote this song as a ‘thank you’ for their fans encouragement and devotion. Fun fact, right? Makes you enjoy the song that much more!
Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)
This song is so much fun to sing that even if your heart isn’t being played with, you’ll end up singing along to it. Imagine you’re with your bf/gf at a bar, and this song comes on… There’s no way you’re not going to turn into a couple of dorks singing this song to each other, complete with hand gestures and everything! Try it, we guarantee the adorable image will stay in your head forever.
Bye Bye Love
Do you know that this song exists? If you’re a hardcore BSB song, you probably do, but otherwise, it may have gone under the radar. It’s from This Is Us, an album they released 10 whole years ago! It’s catchy, fun, and relatable. Go give it a listen! After all, we all need to say “Bye Bye Love” sometimes.
Shape of My Heart
What could sound more alluring than a boyband singing to let them show us the Shape of their Heart? We’d gladly be willing to listen! And hum along too. This song definitely brings out those nostalgia feels.
Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)
…. alright! Can anyone really not say alright, right after hearing the words “Backstreet’s Back?” We’d bet not because we do it each time. And it’s a cause for celebration!
