A 90s musical reunion

By: Caitlin Moynihan, Columnist 

All the 90s babies out there, get ready to have your brain explode. I preface this column to make it clear nothing is confirmed by anyone with a truly official title, but yet, here I am freaking out about it as if I already bought tickets.

It has almost been 20 whole years since two of the most influential and perfect bands were tossed into existence. I am obviously talking about the Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls, because duh.

Although I am only a mere 20-year-old myself, I feel a great connection to these bands. I grew up listening to their music, and my two older siblings would often force me to be part of their homemade music videos.

Everyone who says that they don’t freak out every time “Wanna Be” or “I Want It That Way” begins to play would definitely be a liar in my book.

While those songs alone create some major #tbt feelings, I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to have a Backstreet Boy and Spice Girl collaboration.

Fortunately for me, these impossible dreams may soon become a reality. In an interview with Rolling Stone, BSB member A.J. McLean hinted that there is a potential tour in the works that would feature both the Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls.

Let that sink in for a minute. Two of the biggest 90s pop bands could be on tour together.

Commence freak-out.

I couldn’t care less about whose idea it was, I only care about this actually happening and coming to a venue that is reasonably close to Towson.

That being said, I know that I would honestly spend a hefty amount of money and travel a reasonable distance to satisfy my 90s kid dreams. There have been no comments about this possibility from any of the Spices,  but I am still clinging to the hope that this is a possibility.

If any member of the Backstreet Boys or Spice Girls management is reading this, may I suggest that you have the boys do the choreography to “Wanna Be” and the girls sing “Everybody?” Now that would be a show.
