Y'know, I've always thought that "MMMBop" was one of the great pop hits of the '90s. The Hanson tune was seemingly everywhere when it was first released, and more than a decade later, it still holds up -- it's one of the most hummable meditations on change and mortality ever released. Anyway, they released a new album this summer called Shout It Out. The lead single "Thinkin 'Bout Somethin'" isn't a kids' tune (the singer's girlfriend has done him wrong) but it's not inappropriate, it is catchy, and the video, well, the video is a bunch of fun. (And if it all just looks vaguely familiar, you're right.)
What I'm thinking about is why they decided that they wanted to apostrophize 2 but not 3 of the words in the song title.
