‘My Life Would Suck Without You’ was a brilliant comeback for Kelly Clarkson, even if the record label politics behind it remain questionable.
‘Stronger’ was always a powerhouse pop song for Britney Spears. But now, it’s a triumphant anthem of survival.
‘If That’s OK With You’ was a triumphant comeback for Shayne Ward, even if it did divide opinion somewhat.
‘Since U Been Gone’ wasn’t just a seminal moment in Kelly Clarkson’s career; it also marked the mid-’00s resurgence of Max Martin.
What better way for Britney Spears to mark a decade in the music industry than reuniting with Max Martin for a song celebrating threesomes?
‘To Love Once Again’ was probably the song that needed to make a decisive move for Solid HarmoniE. And it did…but in the wrong direction.
‘Larger Than Life’ is perhaps the most fitting representation of a group – and a brand of pop music – that had reached its apex.
‘It’s Gonna Be Me’ siphoned the essence of *NSYNC’s ‘No Strings Attached album’ down into an immense three-and-a-half-minute pop package.
We didn’t know it at the time, but ‘Do You Know (What It Takes)’ was a landmark moment for pop music in the ’90s and far beyond.
‘The One’ was never actually planned to be a single. That is, until Nick Carter made a call that changed the Backstreet Boys’ destiny.
‘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.
