So I guess this one is for the ladies probably within 5-7 years of me either way give or take. And perhaps their parents as they are about to relive a time period they thought was dead. I was not a New Kids on the Block fan. But I'll admit, I secretly liked Cover Girl. Oh oh oh, She's my Cover Girl, oh oh oh, oh oh oh.....That song rocked!!! But back in the day I kept my like of that song in the closet. I guess because I was trying so hard not to be like everyone else. Oh and of course I still knew their names and had my favorite. Mine was Jon, while everyone else loved Joey or Jordan. REALLY??? Because those two looked the most like girls of anyone in the group back in the day. How is it possible that they were the dreamboats of the group? I guess I went for the shy underdog. I know you might call Danny the underdog, but give me some credit. I had taste. Poor Danny always called a monkey. He's changed the least of everyone in the group.
Never mind the obvious that they are what, 15-20 years older. I guess we all are. But inside these crazy fans of theirs still have the posters and buttons somewhere and hold on to the fantasy that their favorite will see them in the crowd and instantly fall in love. I don't know how many of you had the giant buttons and the posters, but I'm sure most of you at least remember all the girls that came to school with the giant buttons pinned all over their back packs or on the back of their jean jacket. They were so cool. I wanted to be just like them. I was so jealous of their big awkward pins that they were wearing on their jacket, looking all cool with their Keds, french rolled jeans, and side pony tail. I bet you all miss those days don't you? I wasn't cool enough for all those things. Well I did rock the french rolled jeans now and then, but it was hard since I was tall and fighting the high water look to begin with.
So to all of you brave enough, perhaps crazy enough, to attend their concert, I hope it's everything you ever dreamed of and more. Better than the first time around. As for me, I'll just pop in my mixed CD that has Cover Girl on it, and turn up the volume as I sing at the top of my lungs driving to work as my tribute to all you nutty fans out there.
