Saturday9 for the 24th of June...Backstreet Boys, "As Long as You Love Me"

Want to play along?  Here is a LINK to this week's Saturday9.  It's fun, and we all need more fun in life.

As Long as You Love Me.

... 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?
A. It's been so long since I was normal, I just can't remember. When I went to see my doctor a couple of days ago I was practically vibrating and rumbling like a John Deere tractor.

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?
A. I can't remember.  It was probably my mother in law.

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?
A. Nope, but summer just started.  These things take time, you know.

4) When you feel a cold coming on, what's your favorite remedy?
A. ColdEZE works for me.

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?
A.  I really like Art Museums, and there are two in Balboa Park.  But there is also a wonderful Museum of Natural History, as well as a Museum of Photographic Arts there, too.

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?
"Beauty is as beauty does."  Always has been true and will be 'til the end of time.  

7) This spring Nick became a father for the first time. Is anyone in your life expecting a baby this year?
A. Nope.

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.
I'd rather not say. Besides, you've all heard it already.  Time for looking up.

9) The band's recordbreaking 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?
A. I just bought some turtle neck silks.  Oh, Sears got the returns since they sell Land's End.


  1. I love your answer for #6! Perfect. :)

    Have a blessed weekend.

    1. Such an old saying and still so true, eh?
      Thanks for the good wishes and I wish them for you as well.

  2. The lozenges on my kitchen counter are the CVS brand equivalent of ColdEze. I'm a fan, too.

    1. Thanks for the tip. :-)
      I'm going to look for those CVS ones because the brand name ones are awefully expensive.

  3. You are so right about beauty is as beauty does. Nothing kills a look faster than ugly behavior.

    1. True,true... Super models and musicians sometimes learn this one the hard way.

  4. Sears sells Lands End? I didn't know this!

    Just have to mention again how much I love visiting you and seeing your African Violets. It always brings my Nana to mind...she had about 50 of them growing on glass shelves in all her downstairs windows.

    1. Around here Sears still does. There Are many people living on farms and ranches in east county, so even the Catalog is still around.
      Thanks about the header. I'm feeling a little bad about my Violets because when we rushed away earlier in the month to see our daughter, one of the Violets died because it got over watered.

  5. I trusted someone who needed a place to recover from surgery and I let her stay at my house and four checks and a earring and necklace set disappeared
    I put a stop check order on the checks but they were never cashed and I really miss thee earring and necklace set because it was a gift from my sister-in-law.

    1. When someone you trust enough to have them stay in you home does something that terrible, it can leave some big scars on the heart. The person I trusted was my Psycho Parent.

  6. I just got a sleeveless top from Land's End, I love their stuff.

    1. Super! Another Land's End fan out and about. Yay! I love their silks and cotton turtle necks, so warm and snuggy.

  7. I think it is always time for looking up.

  8. Hey there, CountryDew. I so totally agree with that. Always the time for looking up...
