It might have been a little late to the party, but ‘Summer Of Love’ still managed to put a uniquely Steps-twist on the Latin-pop craze.
‘The One’ was never actually planned to be a single. That is, until Nick Carter made a call that changed the Backstreet Boys’ destiny.
‘Here and Now’ was very much the silver lining to an ominous cloud that was starting to gather over Steps.
‘Sweet Lies’ is the epitome of a pleasant pop song that didn’t ever sound like it would trouble the charts.
It might have been included on a greatest hits album, but ‘Do Somethin’ was a decisive statement of what was to come from Britney Spears.
‘The Call’ found our ever-dependable Backstreet Boys entangled in an intense concoction of lust, betrayal and revenge.
‘Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)’ became the Backstreet Boys’ biggest hit so far. Thanks, in no small part, due to *that* music video.
From the opening beats of ‘I’m A Slave 4 U’, it became evident that Britney Spears’ career was about to change forever.
‘After The Love Has Gone’ saw Steps draw on one of their biggest hits and give it a very Oriental twist.
The release of ‘One For Sorrow (Tony Moran US Remix)’ in 2001 saw the Steps story come full-circle as the track once again peaked at #2.
‘(You Drive Me) Crazy (The Stop Remix!)’ saw Britney Spears release a re-imagined track from her debut album with spectacular results.
‘Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)’ was more than just a comeback single for the Backstreet Boys. It was a cultural reset for pop music as a whole.
