When I was in college, it felt like every other girl my age was obsessed with the Jonas Brothers. They had strong feelings about each brother (one was the hottest, one was the best singer, and then there was That Weird One) and even stronger feelings about their songs. I can’t for the life of me remember what songs of theirs were the most popular, or even how long the band was popular for. I just know that for at least my freshman and sophomore year of college, the Jonas Brothers were the hottest thing in town.
I never listened to them, to be honest. I was far more into bands like Stars and Metric and Emily Haines & the Soft Skeletons and Tegan and Sara. I didn’t listen to the radio anymore by then, so unless I was out with friends or overheard my roommate’s music (rare, as she and I usually wore headphones when either of us wanted to listen to music since our tastes were so different) I didn’t know squat about the Jonas Brothers and their vast catalog of catchy, cheesy Top 40 jams.
