Ryan Hemsworth. Light of my life; fire of my loins; king of the bootlegs; producer of the finest musical catnip. Ryan Hemsworth, I don’t care who you are or where you’re from (Nova Scotia), I just know that I want my Backstreet Boys remixes exactly that way (twitchy fist-pump lounge jams that periodically sample preteen Amanda Bynes squeaking “Amanda Please”). I feel like you’re playing games with my heart a bit with your refusal to drop the full Y2K melodrama of the original chorus, but I’d still give you all I have to give (which is nothing, so thanks for putting this remix up for free download).
Stream this remix below, or download it at none other than hemsworthsbackalright.com. The website will prompt you to tweet about it, but feel free to just close the pop-up window and enjoy the little package of files that accompany the remix, including the flawless pictured BSB art as well as a bonus jpeg of one of Crazy Ol’ Amanda’s sketch comedy characters from the BSB-contemporaneous Amanda Show, a superfan named – no joke – PENELOPE TAYNT.
