Link up here if you're playing along today! I haven't blogged in over two weeks, and I've almost forgotten how!

Saturday 9: As Long As You Love Me (1997)

... Because Bookstraveller suggested The Backstreet Boys. Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This video shows the boys in the band nervously await an audition. When were you last nervous?
Probably on Monday, when I went to see the neurologist and was put on a new medication to treat my migraines. P.S. It did not go well, and I wanted to die. I had almost all the major call-the-doctor-now side effects listed for it! Needless to say, I threw all the pills away.

2) BSB Brian Littrell was born with a congenital heart problem and had open heart surgery the year this song was released. Who is the last person you visited in the hospital?
It has been a long time since I visited someone else in the hospital, but I was there last month for about three months. I had mycoplasma pneumonia.

3) Littrell had different health trouble in 2009. While working in Japan, he contracted swine flu, which caused the band to cancel several events. Have you battled a cold or flu this summer?
This summer has only been a week! But yeah, I've got something. I don't know what...

4) When you feel a cold coming on, what's your favorite remedy?
I don't really treat a cold. I just do a lot of hand-washing and suffer through it.

5) Brian and his cousin, fellow BSB member Kevin Richardson, are both from Kentucky and have been inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame. According to their website, if you tour the Hall of Fame you'll see exhibits that celebrate Kentucky's contribution to American music. Do you enjoy museums? Or do you think they're a snooze?
I love museums! I wish my kids loved and respected them as much as I do, but they're still at the "when do we get to the fun stuff?" phase of life. I think that's a sign that I'm actually adulting?
6) BSB Nick Carter was named one of People magazine's "Most Beautiful People in the World." Who is someone you think is especially gorgeous?
Julia Roberts. I love that woman and think she can do no wrong, srsly.
7) This spring Nick became a father for the first time. Is anyone in your life expecting a baby this year?
I don't think anyone super close to me, but some friends are, and some acquaintances.

8) The band has been involved in ongoing litigation with their first manager, saying he had been dishonest with them about how much they had earned. Tell us about someone you trusted, but shouldn't have.
Some friends who turned out to be using me for money I don't have. They really burned me badly, and I hate to think about it.

9) The band's record-breaking 1999 tour was sponsored by the Sears department store chain. Sam remembers the twice-a-year shopping trips to Sears -- spring and fall -- with her mother to update Sam's school wardrobe. What's the last article of clothing you bought?
How fun! I assume Sam did that in Chicago; my family went to Macy's in NYC. Anyway, hmm... for me? It was probably a pair of black heeled Crocs shoes. I admit, I love Crocs and have about six pairs in different colors and styles. SO comfortable! ;)
That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by!
