BPP Office Pool: What Song Will NKOTB Open With?

Unless you're living under a rock or preoccupied with more important news, you know that New Kids on the Block is getting back together and performing tomorrow morning on The Today Show. And in another sign that we're all getting old, the reunion will mark the 20th anniversary of the band's breakout album, Hangin' Tough. Yes, 20 years.

So we've got one question: What song will they open with?

While you think about that, enjoy this fist-pumping walk down memory lane...

Hangin' Tough.

It's not the right season, but my wife would love it if they went with "Funky, Funky Christmas."

I'm betting on Hangin Tough

I am almost positive that the song of choice will be Hangin' Tough! Wow...twenty years huh?

How about a slow song, but a good song-"Please don't go girl." I always was a Joey Mac fan!

The Right Stuff - in an attempt to prove that they still got it. I might feel compelled to get the answer to that...BPP - field trip?!

I'm going to go with "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida". It may be a long-shot, sure, but I'll be able to retire on the winnings if I'm right.

I just read that one of the members "didn't want a nostalgia tour." Perhaps they won't be performing anything old tomorrow morning. I'll be at work tomorrow while The Today Show is airing so, hopefully, the BPP can put in a quick blurb? Please? :)

I am not tough enough. Not nearly tough enough.
