New Kids On The Block have never been known for their lyrical mastery (their most famous song is basically just a series of "oh-oh-oh-oh-oh"s), but there’s something baffling about even the title of their new track "Remix (I Like The)."
At first glance, it looks backwards. Is this a remix of some old track? No, it’s new. The song is called “Remix,” and okay, that’s cute ― but why is “(I Like The)” necessary? The song goes, “I like the remix,” so shouldn’t the song be called “(I Like The) Remix”? Or how about “I Like The Remix,” no parentheses necessary? Or just plain old “Remix”?
Beef with the title aside, the track itself is a perfectly decent listen, which is promising for their impending tour with other boy bands we thought we'd never hear from again. Listen after the jump!
