When Robin Thicke premiered his new song 'Get Her Back' at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, the track's title (and premise!) totally reminded us of Hanson's 2013 single 'Get the Girl Back.' Which artist's win-her-back song is better?
We're huge fans of both Austin Mahone and Hanson, so it didn't take long for us to notice that both artists have hits with 'MMM' in the title -- Austin with 'MMM Yeah' featuring Pitbull, and Hanson with their breakout smash 'MMMBop.' While the two songs are both classified as pop, they are drastically different. It's a tough choice, but we have to ask: Which 'MMM' song do you like best?
Here at PopCrush, we obsess over all things pop just as much as our readers do. Every Friday, you’ll be able to get to know us a little bit better as we gush about our personal favorite pop culture-related things at this very moment. Read on to find out what our Associate Editor, Michelle McGahan, is crushing on this week!
In Round 1 of March Music Madness, Britney Spears' 'Baby One More Time' won over the Spice Girls' 'Wannabe' with a whopping 70.14% of the votes. Likewise, Hanson's 'MMMBop' had a landslide win against Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's 'One Sweet Day' -- 80.42% of the votes went to the pop/rock band of brothers! Now, in a true battle of '90s pop greatness, 'Baby One More Time' faces off against 'MMMBop.' Which song should be given the title of Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era?
The '90s wouldn't have been the same without Hanson and Mariah Carey. (Editor's note: In fact, our whole lives wouldn't be the same without them: Hanson was not one, but two of our editors' favorite bands growing up, and the first CD one of our editors ever owned was a Mariah Carey album.) Hanson's 'MMMBop' and Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's 'One Sweet Day' are both songs that were made for turning up on the radio in the car. Musically, they're very different -- but lyrically, they're both really emotional, relatable tracks. Which song would you choose as the Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era?
Congratulations to Zac Hanson on the birth of a new baby!
