THE BEATLES: The mop-topped foursome were the original boy band. Everyone had a favorite Beatle. Everyone had a favorite song.
Who stole my heart: Paul
My favorite songs: "Please, Please Me," "It's Only Love," "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Something."
THE MONKEES: Known as the pre-fab four, these guys had it all: Boyish good looks, catchy songs and acting chops to boot. They were every teenage girl's dream.Who stole my heart: Davy
My favorite songs: "Pleasant Valley Sunday," "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You," "Daydream Believer," and "Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)."
NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK: Those accents. Those bad-boy personas. Those dance moves. These guys made me feel like a little nine-year-old rebel without ever actually doing anything.Who stole my heart: Joey and Donnie
My favorite songs: "I'll Be Loving You (Forever)," "You Got It (The Right Stuff)," "Step by Step," and "Time Is on Our Side." BACKSTREET BOYS: These guys sort of elevated the boy band genre a bit. They had soul and sang from the heart. And, they all had distinct personalities.
Who stole my heart: Howie (and later, A.J.)
My favorite songs: "As Long As You Love Me," "I Want It That Way," "The One," "The Call" and "Shape Of My Heart."
N*SYNC: Oh, is it scandalous including both BSB and N*SYNC on the same list? My younger self would have screamed, "YES, it is!" But, really, who can resist these harmonizing hotties? And Justin Timberlake's smile...Who stole my heart: Justin and Lance
My favorite songs: "Tearin' Up My Heart," "Bye Bye Bye," "This I Promise You," and "Gone."
