Every single song is such a tune

Other bands will be considered for a top three. Backstreet boys and Blue maybe.

Agree! I absolutely love(d) five. In fact I saw them in Falmouth last year!

I was a boyzone fan but that was mid 90s. I thought 5ive had some good tunes but didn't go to see them tour or buy their albums. I probably taped their songs from the radio though. I did that a lot.
Never liked blue.

As Long As You Love Me and Everybody by Backstreet Boys are fantastic songs.

YANBU! 5ive were my absolute faves. I still know all the words to every song. My friend used to get frustrated that she couldn't 'rap' along with J's parts.

Are five not responsible for the utter stunner that is "I'm lyrically black..."?

Oh how I cried over boys to Until The Time Is Through in my early teens. grin

And DH, who is an old punk really, loves I Want It That Way grin.

Well they are responsible for "when I flick the switch make your hips wanna dip / I can get you off cos I'm ready and equipped"

Aren't backstreet boys officially the most successful boyband of all time? Sure I heard that somewhere.

Palegreenstars Wed 31-May-17 09:30:17

911 were my fave

glitterglitters Wed 31-May-17 09:30:54


This isssss my journeyyyyyyy....

And all the Smash Hits references to "Pint size popstars"

<wistful sigh>

Jonsnowsghost Wed 31-May-17 09:32:19

But what about N*sync?! Bye bye bye, Tearin' up my heart, Girlfriend, Pop...brilliant songs

Edsheeranalbumparty Wed 31-May-17 09:33:21

I came on to say you are wrong and it was the Backstreet Boys, but I see it's already been covered!

Having said that 'Get On Up' is an absolute tune!

absolutelynot Wed 31-May-17 09:33:43

yabu to think overall they were, because we all know it was BSB however they were easily the best british boyband

Maudlinmaud Wed 31-May-17 09:34:43

Awww smash hits the days of innocence and plastering your a4 folder with posters and stickers. Don't see that much these days.

Reow Wed 31-May-17 09:34:58


Easily Backstreet Boys. Even East 17 were miles better than shitty 5ive.

QueenMortificado Wed 31-May-17 09:35:00

Bodyshakin' by 911 is an absolute tune!!

Palegreenstars Wed 31-May-17 09:35:22


I was devastated when I realised I'd be too tall for the lot of them

'I'm gonna lovvvve youuuu a little bite moooore'

Is it still cool for the kids to have posters on their wall?

ballerinabelle Wed 31-May-17 09:36:05

5 bad boys with the power to rock you.....

Palegreenstars Wed 31-May-17 09:36:09

Ahhh I forgot about bodyshakin'

Perfection (for 90s pop)

Snap8TheCat Wed 31-May-17 09:37:21

BSB are indeed the most successful boyband of all time.


Reliving my youth.

LinaBo Wed 31-May-17 09:37:25

FlyingElbows I'm lyrically blessed! 😂
