Hanging Tough after 20 years!


You've heard the rumors....and it is all true baby! New Kids on the Block are reuniting to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their hit, Hangin' Tough (you know you're singing it right now!). And they will be on the Today Show on Friday! Live! Who was your favorite? Joey, Jordan, Jonathan, Danny, Donny? I really liked them all...I had magazine pictures of them wallpapering my walls. Not so sure about the mid-30's/40's yo boy band, though.

I think since my birthday is coming up, I've been on an 80's kick...I watched Sixteen Candles over the weekend. (I heart Jake Ryan.) And have been thinking a lot about Doogie Howser(well, really Neil Patrick Harris....he is so hot now! I had a crush on him as Doogie, of course). He sings to me on my iPod all the time. I heard rumors of a remake series of 90120! The best of Michael Jackson and Madonna happened in the 80's. Of course politically, it was awful, but I was kid...I didn't care.

But really, the fashion should not come back. My daughter was wearing leggings and vest the other day. Oh no....

I think I liked Joey the best but liked Donny and Jordan a little too. I was just thinking about them and remembering how I got NKOTB pj's one year in my Easter basket. he he

I was in college when the NKOTB came round and I hated them with a passion (REM, XTC and U2 were more my thing - I was an alterna-chick). Barenaked Ladies have a song called "New Kid On The Block" about them - it's hilarious.

As long as 80's big mall hair doesn't come back, I'll be a happy woman. And flower prints. And shoulder pads. I'm broad-shouldered and used to cut all the pads out of my clothes because I didn't want to look like a linebacker. :-)

Joey!!!!

And on How I Met Your Mother they did the ultimate doogie reference. I think they might have the episode online you need to watch it!
