The A to Z of Boy Bands – A
The “A to Z of Boy Bands” is a new post series we are going to have on The Fangirling Life where we go letter by letter, talking about boy bands. Each post will include three people, songs, etc. that start with the letter.
“All or Nothing” by O-Town
The second single from the group’s self-titled debut album is their biggest hit to date and the song that they are most known for. The song, a ballad with some of the greatest lyrics ever to be in a boy band song, separated the group from their “we were made on a reality show” persona and into real boy band territory.
The foursome came out with “I Swear,” a cover of country singer John Michael Montgomery’s No. 1 hit. The song topped the charts in 1994 (the same year that Montgomery topped the country charts and even charted on the pop charts with the song). The song, co-written by Gary Baker, was produced by producer/songwriter extraordinaire David Foster.
All-4 One went on to re-record another Montgomery song, “I Can Love You Like That” and had minimum success before a rift happened with their record label.
Most recently they were a part of the “I Love The ’90s” tour.
“All I Have To Give” by Backstreet Boys
“All I Have To Give,” a song written by Full Force, appeared on the Backstreet Boys’ second international album, “Backstreet’s Back,” and their first U.S. self-titled album. The song, which showcases the group’s five-part harmony, went to No. 1 in Spain, No. 2 in the U.K., No. 3 in Canada and New Zealand and hit No. 5 on U.S. charts.
“All I Have To Give” won an award at the 1999 Teen Choice Awards for Choice Music: Video of the Year.
