Welcome to offical A+F BACKSTREET BOYS THREAD !

HAVE FUN !

Is there somebody who like Backstreet Boys like me ? 

Some information...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Backstreet Boys are a Grammy-nominated male vocal pop group that enjoyed enormous success in the mid-late 1990s and 2000s. They have charted 12 U.S Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, 16 U.K. Top 10 hits and have won numerous awards[7], making them the highest selling boy band of all-time. Since returning to the music scene in 2005, their sound changed drastically, incorporating only live instruments (some of which they play themselves) and a rock edge. The now four-member group consists of Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, and A.J. McLean; original member Kevin Richardson left the group on June 23, 2006...

HISTORY

Beginnings and International Successes: 1992Ė1996 FIRST

Lou Pearlman, an aviation entrepreneur based in Florida, was inspired by the success of the New Kids On The Block in the '80s to create his own clean-cut boy band. After a series of auditions in 1992 and 1993, helped along by producer 'Lil Ishy', he recruited Nick Carter (at age 12, the band's youngest member), Howie Dorough was 19, Alexander James McLean was 14 and following the departure of two members - Sam Licata (later performing as Phoenix Stone) and Charles Edwards - Kevin Richardson came aboard in March 1993, who was 21 at the time. The group took its final shape on April 19, 1993, when Brian Littrell, cousin of Richardson, joined the group after a phone audition. Their first concert, on May 8, 1993, was performed for 3,000 teenagers at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida. Pearlman later booked them at grade-school assemblies and shopping malls, and assigned management duties to Johnny Wright, who had worked with New Kids on the Block. hi.
After a possible Mercury Records deal failed,[citation needed] the band was spotted in Cleveland, Ohio by Jive Records, an independent label best known for its hip-hop and pop acts, in February 1994. By June, they were recording their first single, an urban pop song by Swedish songwriters/producers Max Martin & Denniz PoP called "We've Got It Goin' On". The single struggled in the US and reached only #69 on the Billboard charts; but it sold well in Europe, later earning the band their first Gold record in Germany. In the summer of 1996, the band's first self-titled album was released in Europe, and Canada, going gold within weeks in Europe. Jive and Pearlman kept the band busy overseas for the next two years, sometimes putting on tours for five straight months.
European popularity grew, and the Backstreet Boys kicked off 1996 being voted the No.1 International Group by TV viewers in Germany - "I'll Never Break Your Heart" went gold there and hit #1 in Austria. The group earned their first Platinum record in Germany and toured Asia and Canada.


Comeback: Never Gone 2005-2006 LAST

Never Gone, 2005.After a three-year hiatus, their new hit single, "Incomplete", was released to radio stations on March 28, 2005 and quickly became the #1 most requested song in top markets in both U.S. and overseas[citation needed]. The song was a change from their previous albums, switching to more of an adult contemporary style similar to the music of Coldplay and Lindsay Lohan or Hilary Duff rather than the traditional teen-pop that had previously dominated the charts in the late 1990s, early 2000s. The drastic style change drew negative criticism from magazines such as Rolling Stone (who gave the album only 1 star) and many long time fans, who felt they should have stayed true to their trademark pop sound.
On June 14, 2005, the Backstreet Boys released their comeback album Never Gone, which they spent more than a year recording. The album debuted at  on the U.S. chart with substantial first week sales of 291,000 copies, including debuts in Japan, Pakistan,Germany, India, Chile, Brazil, Australia, and Korea. In that year Brian Littrell scored a hit on the US Christian Charts with the single "In Christ Alone". The Backstreet Boys began the first leg of their Never Gone Tour in July in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Never Gone was certified platinum in the US and four singles were released from the album. Their first single "Incomplete", the second single was "Just Want You To Know", the third singles were: "Crawling Back To You" for the US and "I Still..." (international). The album has gone to sell over 3.1 million copies worldwide.
Backstreet Boys' second single "Just Want You To Know" hit the top 10 in the UK, but was widely considered a flop in America, it was the group's worst performing U.S. single only managing to peak at on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The third international single "I Still" debuted at on the Japan International Singles Chart with 2,182 copies sold, making the first ever international single to enter at on the chart in Japanese history. The third US single, "Crawling Back To You" peaked at  on the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts.
On May 2, 2006, Brian Littrell released his first solo album Welcome Home (You) with the title track as the first single. Both album and single made the top 3 on the Billboard Christian Charts.

New Album-NEW !

The now quartet Backstreet Boys have returned to the studio to start recording songs for their follow up to 2005's Never Gone, due out in the spring of 2007. Brian Littrell has said the upcoming album will be more guitar driven and will have an old school New jack swing and Eurodance sound, which is similar to the style of Hilary Duff's Metamorphosis. Confirmed producers are: Dan Muckala, Billymann, Rob Wells and Eddie Galan. The new single is rumored to be an uptempo, in a style which is a departure from their previous album, Never Gone.

It is no problem.I thought,this will be so good to start a topic about BSB ! I am so great now ! Because,I see that you are pleased this thread like me ! OK I want to write my fave. lyric from my -no 1- fave group BSB !!!

INCOMPLETE

Empty spaces fill me up with holes
Distant faces with no place left to go
Without you within me I canít find no rest
Where Iím going is anybodyís guess

Iíve tried to go on like I never knew you
Iím awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all Iím going to be is incomplete

Voices tell me I should carry on
But I am swimming in an ocean all alone
Baby, my baby
Itís written on your face
You still wonder if we made a big mistake

I've tried to go on like I never knew you
Iím awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all Iím going to be is incomplete

I donít mean to drag it on, but I canít seem to let you go
I donít wanna make you face this world alone
I wanna let you go (alone)

Iíve tried to go on like I never knew you
Iím awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all Iím going to be is incomplete
Incomplete

And...I think,I will update thread later.THANKS !
