What We Learn From BSB Songs: We’ve Got It Going On

wgigolearn

Wow. We have three weeks till the BSB Residency! Time flies.

Speaking of time flying, let’s go back. ALL THE WAY BACK. I’m talking about the very first BSB single. It’s a song we all know and love…Ahhhhhh….Jam on cause Backstreet’s got it! Yup We’ve Got It Going On. The song is cheese and nostalgia and I can’t help but sing out loud just at the thought of it. The way I am as I write this post. (PS – I have a long “Thoughts We Have About The BSB Movie – 2 Years Later” post coming soon, so stay tuned!)

Let’s get going!

We’ve been waiting so long
Just can’t hold it back no more

1. Waiting, for what?

2. Holding back what? Why can’t you do it anymore?

3. Two lines in and I already have multiple questions.

Creepin’ up and down now
It’s time for me to let it go
If you really wanna see
What we can do for you
Send the crazy wildin’ static
Sing it

4. This sounds stalkerish. Geeze this has been happening in multiple songs now.

5. Let what go? What is “it”?

6. What CAN you do for me? This I want to see. Badly.

7. Wait…what? This question has been in my head for years. Also, I thought the lyric was “crazy almost static” not “crazy wildin’ static”.

8. Either way I have no idea WHAT that means or how the hell I’m supposed to send them that brand of static. Shit.

Jam on cuz Backstreet’s got it
Come on now everybody
We’ve got it goin’ on for years
Jam on cuz Backstreet’s got it
Come on now everybody
We’ve got it goin’ on for years

We’ve got it goin’ on for years
We’ve got it goin’ on for years

9. Still want to know what “it” is here. What are you holding back, what are you letting go? What do you have going on for years?

Well I’m creepin’ up on your left
Straight up funky when I get with you
Keep it ruthless when I get wet
Keep the party packed in my corner
Tough like granite to keep the crowd hype
Get up on this just to get right
What you want it what you gonna get
Backstreet’s got the special effects, uh

10. AJ, stop creeping! Don’t be a stalker! Damn we’re back to that again. Creeping is well…creepy!

11. What’s the difference between straight up funky and crooked funky? Or straight up funky and diluted funky?

12. The line about being ruthless when he gets wet? That line went way, way, WAY over my head for years. Had no idea what I was “rapping” as a child.

13, Somehow, granite is not at all what I’d picture keeping a crowd hyped.

14. HOLD UP…does this mean BSB are magic if they got the special effects?

If you really wanna see
What we can do for you, oh
I’ll send the crazy wildin’ static
Sing it

15. I WANT TO KNOW WHAT CRAZY WILDIN’ STATIC IS! Hey Boys, can you tell me? Holy Howie, this is going to bug me the way the lyrics to I Want It That Way haunt me almost 18 years later.

Jam on cuz Backstreet’s got it
Come on now everybody
We’ve got it goin’ on for years
Jam on cuz Backstreet’s got it
Come on now everybody
We’ve got it goin’ on for years

We’ve got it goin’ on for years
We’ve got it goin’ on for years

We’ve been waiting so long
Just can’t hold it back no more
(just can’t hold it back no more)
Creepin’ up and down now
It’s time for me to let it go
It’s time for me to let it go

16. Damn, must be worth the wait.

Jam on, jam on

Everybody groove to the music
Everybody jam

Jam on cuz Backstreet’s got it
Come on now everybody
We’ve got it goin’ on for years
Jam on cuz Backstreet’s got it
Come on now everybody
We’ve got it goin’ on for years

We’ve got it goin’ on

17. Welp, whatever “it” is, it must be amazeballs.

Overall Lesson: BSB must have some good shit! Also, they have discovered a brand of static us mere mortals can’t find. If anyone can find out what crazy wildin’ static is, or where it is, or how to get it? For the love of all that is Backstreet, send it my way. This way we can see what BSB can do for us!
