Flashback Friday

It is Friday, isn't it?

I got this from Temple. Here's how it goes.

Go here for a random date. Then go here for the Top 40 charts from the week of your random date.

Then tell the whole world via your blog a story about the song you chose.

First of all, let me just say that my Top 40 week is pretty freakin' hilarious. I think that music during this week was kinda crappy and shallow. But I like and remember almost every song on the list.

My random date is July 24, 2000.

During this time I lived in Minnesota and had a live in boyfriend that I really didn't care much for. But since I am not one for change, I sucked it up and dealt with it for another 2 years. Another story another blog.

The song I selected is It's Gonna Be Me by N 'Sync.

My son was 2...almost 3 years old at this time. He got the music gene from his mama. No, we're not musically talented. We just love lots of music. And he loved N 'Sync. So much so that Danielle bought him an N 'Sync action figure and he thought it was the coolest thing ever.

My loser boyfriend at the time had twin younger siblings; Katie and Bobby. I remember Katie being a bit more mature for her age than a typical girl. And Bobby being the typical teenager. We'd go to the family's house and they'd be watching TRL. But whenever N 'Sync came on, it seemed like everyone was drawn to the TV. I'm not sure if it was just because of the time we were in - pop music was dominated by teenagers and boy bands. Or if they were really a talented group. I mean, all these years later, we can only account for Justin Timberlake, right?

Anyway, I don't really have a crazy story for any of these songs on the Top 40 for that week because all I really did at that time was work. But I remember that N 'Sync just kinda took over that whole summer.
