Backstreet is back again

So one day I unexpectedly found out the Backstreet Boys where presenting live the documentary about their story that same day, and equally unexpectedly, in a theatre across the street from my office.

Golden Oldies: The Backstreet Boys… Then

Post by Paola Once you lived the nineties there is no chance that you will encounter another beautiful, sparkly and powerful era, especially when talking about music.

Ultra / Say It Once

SPOILER ALLERT: ’90s Pop Boyband. Basically my field of expertise. It was 1998 and I was it the middle of my teenage dream. Boybands popped out like mushrooms, Take That had already ended their (first) phase and Spice Girls were half way through. And in that perfect pure pop era, another mix of nice looking, […]
