Music Monday

Put all of your prejudgments aside, and take a listen. They aren't little kids anymore!

Yes, I am a Hanson fan. I've been one pretty much my whole life! I became a fan 13 years ago, way back in 1997 when I was just a kid, and well, they pretty much were just kids too! Back then they were only 11, 14, and 16... and had one of the catchiest songs ever made. Oh yeah, you remember it: MMMBop. And even though we've all grown out of that bubblegum pop song, guess what? So have they! Now Hanson are adults. Isaac is 29, Taylor is 27, and Zac is 24. And their music is amazing! They also have some of the craziest and most dedicated fans I have ever seen! Most of which have stuck by their side for the last 13 years, and usually travel ridiculous distances for special events. Not to mention that pretty much every Hanson fan can tell you what it's like to sleep on a street, sometimes for days, just so that they can secure that front row spot at a "General Admission" show. That's dedication. Or maybe it's insanity... but nothing beats the feeling of being front row at your favorite band's concert!

Hanson was the first band I ever liked. They were the first CD I bought, and the first famous people I've ever met. In the past 13 years I've been to more than 30 Hanson concerts, and have met them multiple times. But more importantly, their music has gotten me through some tough times, and their music has directly and indirectly introduced me to some amazing people, most of which I can now call my best friends.

Oh, but... you may still catch me dancing around to mmmbop once in awhile... shhhh! Don't tell anyone!

Hanson's new video "Thinkin' About Somethin'"

I would just like to point out that a lot of my friends are in this music video, they are part of the "Flash Mob" and are dancing in the background. :)
