This week mark’s the 15th anniversary of one of the greatest albums of all time – *NSYNC’s “No Strings Attached.” We have fond memories of pre-ordering the CD at Sam Goody, running to the mall after school the day it came out to pick it up. And of course, you weren’t cool unless you brought the album with you the next day and fangirled over the pictures of your favorite (JC and Lance) in the CD booklet! In honor of this momentous occasion, here are our favorite songs from “No Strings Attached.” We recommend celebrating by watching *NSYNC: Live from Madison Square Garden and dancing along.
1. “Bye Bye Bye”
Everything about this song is amazing. The dance moves, the video, that note JC hits?
2. “It’s Gonna Be Me”
The origin of *NSYNC’s signature slow lean and pop.
3. “I Thought She Knew”
*NSYNC were known for their moves and style, but this track proved they could SING. We get chills every time we listen to it. If we ever get to hear this live (Which we will because a reunion tour will happen.) we will be in tears.
4. “It Makes Me Ill”
Don’t you feel awesome when you can sing along to that quick verse at the beginning?
5. “Digital Get Down”
Basically, *NSYNC sang about Face Time before it was even a thing.
Bonus: “Space Cowboy” feat. Lisa Left Eye Lopes
Yes, they rode mechanical bulls during this song on tour.
Bonus #2: “Just Got Paid”
