Top 10 *NSYNC Songs


Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason and JC. A boy band for the ages. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top ten *NYSNC songs.

For this list, we’re taking a look at the best songs to come from one of the best-selling boy bands of all time. They’ll be ranked based on their chart success, popularity, and of course their overall inventiveness. That said, we are considering tracks from *NSYNC’s three studio albums but will not be including singles off their holiday Christmas albums or singles recorded for soundtracks. So brush up on your choreography as we turn back the clock to a time when this boy band phenomenon were at the top of their game.

#10: “Here We Go”
*NSYNC (1998)


This track's success and appeal saw it reach the top ten in Switzerland, Austria, and of course Germany which was the only country where the song was officially released as a single. This track off *NSYNC’s debut album has an upbeat sound that without a doubt has the power to influence some serious dance moves. If the music video taught us anything, it was that *NSYNC were a boy band with the ability to execute their choreographed dance moves to perfection and release catchy music. The combination of a pop and R&B flavour here creates an all-round party vibe, and as this song was only their third single, it no doubt helped signal the beginning of one hell of a career for *NSYNC.

#9: “(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You”
*NSYNC (1998)


Heart-warming, kind-hearted, and sweet are the perfect words to summarise this moving track. Not only did this song further prove that *NSYNC had the chops to nail soft ballads, but it delivered a personal message as its lyrics speak of a man who is grateful and commends that special loved one for their commitment and love. This song marked another level of success for *NSYNC, as it delivered to them their first entry inside the top ten on the US Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 8. With lyrics filled with a moving, emotional meaning and a relaxing sound, it sits among the group’s best tracks.

#8: “This I Promise You”
No Strings Attached (2000)


Written and produced by pop icon Richard Marx, this song boasts several achievements. It earned *NSYNC their fifth top ten on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number five while hitting number one on the Adult Contemporary chart. Lyrically, it focuses on a man’s commitment, love, and promises made toward his special better half. With a head-swaying vibe and a killer melody, the visually aesthetic music video featuring the group dressed in their finest turtlenecks is and forever will be a beloved image of the early 2000’s. Its calming vibe is both soothing and tranquil, while the song provides a healthy message about the importance of promises in any strong relationship.

#7: “Girlfriend” feat. Nelly
Celebrity (2001)


Unrequited love can be heartbreaking, as demonstrated with this R&B inspired track off *NSYNC’s final studio album. Not only did the song peak at number 5 on the US Billboard Hot 100, but it was actually the final single ever released by the record breaking boy band. Written by Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams, and Chad Hugo, the track is complimented by a typically well-choreographed music video. And when we say well-choreographed, we mean it, as each of the five members performs their arranged dance numbers each atop of a car. Impressive or what? Its boy band perfection all in one serving, with a handy contribution from Nelly to further add to the R&B inspired vibe.

#6: “Gone”
Celebrity (2001)


Charting world wide, this Grammy nominated song was written by renowned dancer, choreographer and songwriter Wade. J Robson, along with Justin Timberlake. “Gone” served as a perfect showcase for JT's vocals to shine as he took the reigns on the solo sections of the song. Lyrically, the song emphasises the difficulties and heartbreak experienced when going through a breakup. Offering up another appealing melody, the song is inspired by the R&B and soul genres, whilst managing to hold a sound that sits comfortably among *NSYNC’s best performing love ballads.

#5: “Tearin’ Up My Heart”
*NSYNC (1998)


Bringing a fresh pop flavour to the mix and showcasing some of the best contributions to music in the late nineties is this classic pop track. Known as one of the songs that ignited *NSYNCs career to increasing levels of success, this track provided the perfect platform at live concerts for the band to perform awesome choreographed dance numbers. Listed by VH1 as the thirtieth best song of the 90’s, “Tearin’ Up My Heart” sees the boys sing about the hurt that can arise from either being with or without your partner. It’s catchy as hell, with a dance-pop vibe that is sure to keep you on the dance floor.

#4: “Pop”
Celebrity (2001)


After their second album No Strings Attached broke the standing record at the time for first week album sales at 2.4million, it was going to take one hell of an effort to back up the impressive feat. The first single “Pop” off their next album Celebrity sure achieved this, adding another catchy song to their already successful musical catalogue, winning them more record sales and plenty of radio airplay. “Pop” was not only huge on radio and the charts but equally massive on MTV where it took home four of the five MTV Video Music Awards it was nominated for, and it's easy to see why.

#3: “I Want You Back”
*NSYNC (1998)


This was the worldwide debut single that started it all. When the first song you release internationally is certified gold in not one but three countries and cracks the top 10 on seven different charts you know you've done something right. The music video, meanwhile, set a whole new standard for choreography and also, in turn, revealed their now classic nineties wardrobes. By taking the dance-pop genre and absolutely nailing its execution, this song not only introduced us to the band, but ushered in their catchy catalogue of music to help give the world a preview of what exciting musical gems were to come.

#2: “It’s Gonna Be Me”
No Strings Attached (2000)


At the peak of their fame, *NSYNC blew the world away with this chart topping slice of pop gold. The song’s lyrics revolve around an indecisive girl who cannot commit to a man, but in the end he is certain he will be her ideal choice. Peaking in the number one spot on the US Billboard Hot 100, the track boasts a catchy pop sound and had a comfortable spot on several charts worldwide. In addition, its music video was equally awesome, as in similar style to the album cover of No Strings Attached, the video reveals all five members as toy dolls in a supermarket. Badass.

Before we dance to our top pick, here are a few honourable mentions.

“Thinking of You (I Drive Myself Crazy)”
*NSYNC (1998)

“No Strings Attached”
No Strings Attached (2000)

“U Drive Me Crazy”
The Winter Album (1998)

“I’ll Never Stop”
No Strings Attached (2000)


#1: “Bye Bye Bye”
No Strings Attached (2000)


It was the biggest song of their career, and may just be one of the greatest boy band songs of all time. Peaking inside the top ten of several countries and taking out the top spot in Australia, Canada and New Zealand, “Bye Bye Bye” was nominated for a Grammy in 2001 for Record of the Year and to this day remains a cultural phenomenon. The song's iconic video, meanwhile, presents the band as puppets cut loose from their master. Lyrically the song signals the end of a relationship, and it’s still a favourite many, years after its release.
