Still Hangin’ Tough After All These Years?

Remember back in the 80s when everybody had mile-high bangs and pegged their acid washed jeans and listened to New Kids on the Block?

Yeah, we all did dumb stuff in fourth grade.

Anyway, it looks like the NKOTB, now a bunch of 40 year olds, are reuniting, making a new album, and going on tour.

I think they are smoking The Wrong Stuff.

According to CNN, the group (somehow New Middle Aged Guys on the Block doesn’t have the same ring to it) is going to play their old hits, but is also working on new songs.

My favorite old school NKOTB lyrics are:

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh wee oh oh
The Right Stuff

Closely followed by my second favorite:

Whoa whoa whoa WHOA whoa
Hangin’ Tough

Since I’m all about finding free-lance work, here are my two submissions for new NKOTB songs. I tried to stick with their “style” but make them more relevant to their new demographic.

New NKOTB Song Number One

Owe owe owe owe owe
Owe owe owe owe
Owe owe owe DOO da
We have second mortgages

New NKOTB Song Number Two

Woe woe woe woe woe
Middle life crisis much?

In case you have forgotten the priceless outfits and dance moves of this group, check out the YouTube clip below. I wonder if they plan to dance like this on the new tour? I don’t know, that flailing leg part might give them rheumatism.

Thanks to Jen for the heads up!
