Donnie Wahlberg / NKOTB Gallery

1st drawing of the series "Top 3 reasons I love Donnie Wahlberg": New Kids On The Block

I've already explained a few things about the drawing itself when it was first posted in the "Music" gallery so I'm just going to add a few things about NKOTB.
I've always loved listening to New Kids On The Block because there's something about their music that just makes me feel good. I'll gladly admit that some of the old songs are "cheesy pop" but as long as I keep smiling everytime I'm singing along to "Cover Girl" or "You got it (the right stuff)", why should I really care? I've also been listening to the album "Step by Step" for more than 20 years and I'm still loving it as much as I did when I bought it. The album made after the reunion of the band, "The Block" is definitely more grown up and I love it, too. So, to sum up, I loved them back then and I still do. Good reason to make a drawing, isn't it?
