Boy Bands and RyanDan (these two are linked, trust me)

     I just discovered something this weekend. Anyone fans of RyanDan? I first heard their song Tears of an Angel on someone else's blog (can't remember whose) and loved it. So I downloaded some of their songs cuz I wanted more. This weekend I was listening to them on my iPad, and sort of absently staring at the album cover that was on the screen. And I realized- these two dudes are familiar!
     Ever heard of B4-4? They were a Canadian boy band back when boy bands were huge. I still have their CD on my bookshelf. I particularly loved this song: Get Down (seriously, watch it, it's hilarious)


     I also liked Go Go and Endlessly. But anyway, RyanDan are the same guys!!! (minus the brunette) What I'd like to know, is how they went from cheesy boy band above (admittedly, I loved it) to this:

Like The Sun

     Or another comparison, if you don't want to watch the videos:



     Craziness. Dudes have grown up, that's all I can say. Anyway, that has nothing to do with writing of course and neither does this, 30 Day Song Challenge, Day 29: A Song From My Childhood.
     Speaking of boy bands, the first band I ever liked all on my own (older sibs didn't like it first) was New Kids On The Block. I was in Grade Four so I think that qualifies as childhood.
