Land   Verenigde Staten

De jaren 90 worden overspoeld met boyband als Boyzone, Take That, Five en de Backstreet Boys. 5 jongens uit Orlando Florida veroveren de wereld en scoren de ene hit na de andere in de Top 40 met hits als We've Got It Goin' On, I'll Never Break Your Heart en Everybody. In 1999 scoren ze een nummer 1-hit met I Want It That Way die vanuit het niets op 1 binnen komt. Begin deze eeuw neemt het succes af en scoren de heren met Just Want You To Know in 2005 hun laatste hit.

In de jaren die volgen weten ze met nummers als I Still..., Inconsolable, Helpless When She Smiles en Show Em (What You're Made Of) nog wel in de Tipparade te komen.



In 2018 viert de groep het 25-jarige jubileum en ter gelegenheid van die mijlpaal geven ze een concertreeks in Las Vegas. Ook verschijnt er in mei van dat jaar een nieuwe single van de 'boys' met Don't Go Breaking My Heart.




Songtekst

(Phone Rings)
AJ's Girlfriend: "Hello?"

AJ: "Hi, it's me. What's up baby?
I'm sorry, listen, I'm gonna be late tonight so don't stay up and wait for me, ok?"

AJ's Girlfriend: "Where are you?"

AJ: "What wha..?! say that again."

AJ's Girlfriend: "Hello?"

AJ: "you're really dropping out, i think my battery must be low".
Listen, if you can hear me, we're going to this place nearby alright, gotta go!"
(Phone Hang-up)

Let me tell you the story about the call that changed my destiny
Me and my boys went out, just to end up in misery
Was about to go home when there she was standing in front of me
I said hi! I got a little place nearby, wanna go?

I should've said no
Someone's waiting for me
But I called my girl up and said

[chorus:]
Listen baby I'm sorry
Just wanna tell you don't worry
I will be late, don't stay up and wait for me
I say again, you're dropping out, my battery is low
So you know, we're going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

Now two years gone, nothing's been won
I can't take it back, what's done is done
One of her friends found out that she wasn't my only one
And it eats me from inside that she's not by my side
Just because I made that call and lied

[chorus:]
Listen baby I'm sorry
Just wanna tell you don't worry
I will be late, don't stay up and wait for me
I say again, you're dropping out, my battery is low
So you know, we're going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

Listen baby, I'm sorry (Hello?)
Listen baby, I'm sorry ("Hello...?")
Gotta go..!
Oh...

Let me tell you the story ‘bout the call that changed my destiny
Me and my boys went out just to end up in misery
Was about to go home when there she was standing in front of me
I said hi, I got a little place nearby, gotta go...

[chorus:]
Listen baby I'm sorry
Just wanna tell you don't worry
I will be late, don't stay up and wait for me
I say again, you're dropping out, my battery is low
So you know, we're going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

[chorus:]
Listen baby I'm sorry
Just wanna tell you don't worry
I will be late, don't stay up and wait for me
I say again, you're dropping out, my battery is low
So you know, we're going to a place nearby
We're going to a place nearby
Gotta go!
