"It's like a song. Now, I can hold a note for a long time. - Actually, I can hold a note forever. - But eventually, that's just noise. It's the change we're listening for. The note coming after and the one after that. That's what makes it music."

I like both, but "I Want It That Way" is such a karaoke classic!! Every time I go to a karaoke bar someone's singing that song; typically a couple of drunk girls (), so I voted for that, even though the BSB have way better songs.
However, if we wanna talk the video, "Bye Bye Bye" (and 'N Sync's discography from the No Strings Attached and Celebrity eras) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

"I Want It That Way" is lyrically developmentally disabled. The opening line is great. The first verse is good. "That way" sounds intriguing. Then the chorus kicks in. The guy is wondering why the relationship is hard and feels like a mistake, but then sings about never wanting her to "want it that way" after trying to convince her to believe him that he "wants it that way." Like, what the hell? I still have no idea what’s the "that way" he wants. Is "that way" a good or a bad thing? Is it anal sex? The bouncing up n’ down and arm swinging they call dancing in the music video, in addition to the airplane with their name on it and the fans wearing their tour shirts always makes me laugh. So do the performances.
"Bye Bye Bye" is an undeniable pop classic, an iconic song with an iconic video and iconic performance. The video debuted at #1 on TRL and eventually spent 53 days at #1.
