The Backstreet boys have revealed that there was a whole other version of ‘I Want It That Way’ recorded before the version they released as a single.
THIS version, titled “No Goodbyes”, makes a litter more sense in the chorus. If you never noticed like me because you were a preteen girl with a raging love for boybands, apparently the version publicly released doesn’t make sense. Critics didn’t know what “THAT” way was… they didn’t get the chorus because well the lines really don’t make sense.
“No Goobyes” definitely makes more sense, but in the end, Nick explained sometimes you just have to go with what sounds and feels better, not what makes sense (this explains a lot of my past relationship… So that’s why they went with the version we all know and love.
