'I Want You Back'

It takes some serious cojones to give a new boy band's debut single the same title as the breakout hit of a certain other seminal boy band, but it was a gamble that paid off. 'NSync's "I Want You Back" may not have topped the charts like the Jackson 5's, but the former's tune oozed platinum promise with soaring harmonies, no-holds-barred choreography and adorable Nineties haircuts, with a specific shout-out to Chris Kirkpatrick's stunning center part.
