BACKSTREET BOYS : Larger Than Life
Remember the days when everything Max Martin touched turned to gold? This incredibly amazing pocket of pOp sat fairly and squarely right slap bang in the middle of those days. It hit the No.3 position here in Australia and went all the way to the top of the Canadian singles chart, but it still holds firm as one of our favourite pOp songs of the last ten years – and it WAS ten years ago that the track was released. Check out the start of the clip when the spaceship’s moving overhead and wonder whether it was this sequence that was the inspiration for the opening of Take That’s ‘Beautiful World’ concert. But what’s to follow is pure pOp poetry – the punching beat, the CGI, the dance routine (a staple of BSB clips) and the killer chorus that had us all knowing that Backstreet was indeed back and was (dare we say it) back for good.
