Backstreet Boys - Page 3
When Justin Bieber came out with the infectious 'As Long As You Love Me' in 2012, we thought the title sounded a little familiar: That's because the Backstreet Boys had a hit by the same name in 1997. Bieber's song is more upbeat and dance-heavy, while BSB went with a love ballad for the original. Whose 'As Long as You Love Me' is better?
It was a close match for all, but in Round 1 of March Music Madness, the Backstreet Boys' 'I Want It That Way' pulled a last minute win against New Kids on the Block's 'Step by Step.' Fans voted wildly up until the final seconds of the song battle, resulting in BSB's hit single getting 59.09% of the votes. Meanwhile, Whitney Houston's 'I Will Always Love You' held a steady lead over Celine Dion's 'My Heart Will Go On' throughout Round 1 of the competition. In a duel between two of the greatest pop vocalists of all time, Whitney came through with the win. Now we're faced with an unexpected but interesting match to vote on in our quest to find the Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era: 'I Want It That Way' vs. 'I Will Always Love You'!
New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys are two of the biggest boy bands of all time, and songs highlighted here as part of March Music Madness are arguably their most successful songs. 'Step by Step' hit a chord with early '90s pop fans, while 'I Want It That Way' made its mark in the late '90s. Will it be 'Step by Step' that moves on to the next round in our Greatest Pop Song of the Modern era bracket, or will it be 'I Want It That Way'?
