Who likes "It's Gonna Be Me" by *NSync?

Much like what Quentin Tarantino said in the cut scene from Pulp Fiction: where Mia claims that everyone can be classified as either an Elvis person or a "Beatles" person, you can't be both.

This is not quite as "heavy," but c'mon, you either like It's Gonna Be Me, or you don't.

Personally, I love the song. I like Bye Bye Bye, too, but not as much. And I like nothing else by *NSync

There are two types of people in this world: Those who like Neil Diamond, and those who don't. My ex-wife loves him

Re: Who likes "It's Gonna Be Me" by *NSync?

They were catchy songs (this and Bye Bye Bye) but I know the majority will say they hate it even if they never heard it just because it's never been hip to like N'Sync, especially not ten years after their day.

I think most posters will go after the last option, just because they're all "hymers."

I remember the song, voted for the last option, and I still think it sucks as bad now as it did then. Maybe even moreso.

Re: Who likes "It's Gonna Be Me" by *NSync?

I like NSync quite a bit. As far as bubble gum pop goes, they were certainly the best of that whole crop of boy bands and teen queens of their time. So yeah, I like It's Gonna Be Me.

not the worst thing I've ever heard. They were probably about the only boy band that had even a smidgeon of talent.

It came and went. I didn't pay much attention to the song when it was around, so I don't really care about it now.

OK song. Has a good hook. Never thought much about it at the time. Justin had some awful girly hair back then. Christina Aguilera and Backstreet Boys (to a lesser degree) were the best things to come out of that teen music scene.

I never heard it, but then again, I'm heterosexual.

Re: Who likes "It's Gonna Be Me" by *NSync?

I admit I feel a little bad for the other four guys who have all resorted to reality television because they're that hard up for money. But Justin will write songs for and collaborate with every artist under the sun who wants to work with him, but he won't grant N'Sync a reunion that you know the other four members would jump at doing. Come on, your so-called "brothers" need your help more than Rihanna, Madonna or Beyonce do, so why not help them out?

Unless I just haven't heard any Justin solo songs I liked, I don't think he's done anything as good as It's Gonna Be Me. And it's been 10 years. Has he done anything almost as superior?

New Kids on the Block did it, I'm sure they will at some time or another if they're hard up for money

No one from NKOTB achieved even one tenth of the amount of solo success that Timberlake has, though....he has no reason to do any Nsync reunion (unlike the other four members), and unless he goes on a MC Hammer type spending spree, he probably will never be "hard up for the money" at this point....

Maybe not as far as music, but Donnie Wahlberg had success as an actor.

This is the first time I've heard the song. I'm not a fan of over-produced pop but it's fun 'n catchy.

I understand why he wanted the solo thing, but I don't see why he couldn't juggle the band and solo like Phil Collins, Stevie Nicks, Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode), Gwen Stefani, Rob Thomas and others have. Even Beyonce promised she would do one last Destiny's Child album before she fully devoted her attention to her solo career. Justin promised another N'Sync album but once he saw he could sell on his own, he forgot the other four guys who could use it more than he could. Even Michael Jackson gave his brothers one final tour AFTER the success of Thriller, which is more than Justin will ever have. Just swallow your pride and do it just once for the other guys who have their own bills to pay.
