The number one song on the fan voted Top 20 Backstreet Boys songs of all time shouldn’t come as a surprise. The surprise is that “Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of” almost tied with it, but lost by two votes. Two votes, people.
The number one song is “I Want It That Way,” the boys’ signature song. “I Want It That Way” was written by Andreas Carlsson and Max Martin.
“I Want It That Way” was the first single off of “Millennium,” but it almost wasn’t. “Larger Than Life,” the album’s second single, was originally supposed to be released first, but after the boys heard the final version of “I Want It That Way” and decided they wanted to go a more mature route. Jive Records had to be convinced.

Thank you to everybody who voted!
