Tunes & Tales: No Strings Attached

I spent most of my late elementary years up until I was in college loving boy bands. While I still love them until today, a lot of my favorites have disbanded to pursue different careers and actual lives out of the spotlight. NSYNC was one such band! I've loved them from a very young age, and still enjoy rocking out to their music every now and then. I felt the urge to pay tribute to them this month for Tunes & Tales, so you'll just have to feel the nostalgia with me! Confession: I may have chosen this particular album because it felt Halloween-y to me in terms of the cover.

VIBE: Pop, with vocals in the style of boy band and tunes you can dance too
WHY: Because classic boy band album is classic.
TRY: It's Gonna Be Me is my favorite, favorite, favorite.

Don't really wanna make it tough
I just want to tell you that I've had enough
It might sound crazy, but it ain't no lie
Bye bye bye

It's Gonna Be Me / Anne of the Island
There comes a day when I'll be the one, you'll see
It's gonna (gonna) (gonna) (gonna) (gonna)
It's gonna be me [...]
Every little thing I do
Never seems enough for you [...]
Baby, when you finally get to love somebody
Guess what?
It's gonna be me

Space Cowboy (Yippie-Yi-Yay) / Cress
We don't need all these prophecies
Telling us what's inside
'Cause paranoia ain't the way
To live your life from day to day
So leave your doubts and your fears behind

Just Got Paid / Opal
On the floor, rockin' to the beat (rockin' to the beat)
All ways, sure looks sweet (sweet thing)
Fine young lady, standin' by (you look fine tonite)
Come on baby, sweet eye delight...

It Makes Me Ill / The Winner's Crime
It makes me ill to see you give love and attention at his will
And you can't imagine how it makes me feel
To see you with him

This I Promise You / Tatiana & Alexander
And I will take you in my arms
And hold you right where you belong
Till the day my life is through
This I promise you

No Strings Attached / Two of Hearts
You don't have to be afraid to fall in love
And I know that you've hurt in the past
But if you want it, here's my heart
No strings attached

Digital Get Down / Illuminae
Digital digital get down just you and me
(You may be) Twenty thousand miles away but I can see ya
And baby baby you can see me
Digital digital get down just what we need
We can get together naturally
(We can) We can get together on the digital screen

I'll Never Stop / Ice Like Fire
I don't know, will you believe me
After all is said and done
All the lies, how I regret them, baby
Now, I am the loser
And you're shining like the sun
Tell me why can't I still be the one?

Bringin' Da Noise / This Song Will Save Your Life
Bringin' da noise
Bring down the house
We came here to turn the party out 
Say come on, come on
Let's raise the roof 
And give `em proof
That we can get loose ya'll

That's When I'll Stop Loving You / The Crown of Embers
As long as sunlight lights the sky
The light of love will be found in these eyes of mine
I will shine that light for you
You're the only one I'll ever give this heart to
What I'm trying to say is nothing will change this
There'll be no time you won't find me there
'Cause I will always be there
You will always have all my love

I'll Be Good for You / Nash
I know your heart's anticipating
And my love is on your mind
Well don't you worry
I won't keep you waiting
Cause I ain't ever seen a lady so fine
I know you want me too
It's in your eyes they say you do
They're telling me you'll open your heart to me

If I'm Not the One / Smooth-Talking Stranger
Lately, feels like I'm going crazy
And baby, come and lay down beside me
If I'm not the one you want, then who's he?
Take your time to figure out, and you'll see
If I'm not the one you want, then maybe
I'll be the one you need

If She Only Knew / Second Position
A heart full of words left unspoken
Now that we're through
I'd sell my soul to have this silence broken
Oh I thought she knew
I thought she knew
I thought she knew
My world revolved around her
My love light burns for her alone


  1. Aw, this is all kinds of awesome :D Love love love it. Thank you so much for making and sharing Alexa. <3 You are awesome.

  2. This post is the bomb. I love NSYNC and this album in particular. I saw the No Strings Attached concert twice in the same year. Saw them in L.A. and San Diego and by the time I went to the San Diego concert, I knew all of the dance moves to all of the dances. Ha! I loved this walk down memory lane.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love seeing what you have to say, and will try to reply (here or on Twitter) as soon as I can :)
