Plant a Seed, Plant a Flower, Plant a Rose

21 Oct

In 1997, God sent three prized cherubs down to earth. These long golden haired boys had the voices of Angels. To many, they would be remembered only for MmmBop;as nothing more than a band with a one hit wonder. But, to a few hundred thousand fans everywhere they would be worshiped forever. I am talking about Hanson of course.  

When I first saw Hanson on MTV way back in the 3rd grade I assumed, as did many, that they were female, but TRL quickly influenced me to believe otherwise. Carson Daily assured me that the boys’ long locks were not like the coiled hair of a girl or even the greasy mane of a grunge boy, but rather the symbol of a pre-teen sex god.  Isaac, Taylor, and, my personal favorite, Zac had overcome their humble Tulsa upbringing and instantly become icons.Hanson512.jpg image by rachaelmaine

It seemed that after the first Hanson brother album Middle of Nowhere, they vanished from the airwaves. But any dedicated Hanson fan will tell you this is not true. Hanson currently is independently touring and producing their own music and, to the thrill of at least three girls, they are producing many many children.  Just yesterday my friend received Hanson’s autograph when the boys were on the American University Campus.  Their newest album will be released in May of 2010.

Isaac, Taylor, Zac, when you are old and losing your hair, I can tell you that I will still care. I miss your synchronized jams, your long blonde and slightly messy hair, and your pop love songs.


Hanson, I miss your face- Shassie

    Zac was always my favorite too, for 3 reasons: most age-appropriate, manliest, drummer.

    I expect Hanson II will emerge when all of the babies grow up a little bit and grow out their hair! Cousin band, but they’re still all Hansons! How lucky!

    My friend Albon had a crush on Zack for about about 3 years before he found out Zack was not a girl.

    Zac is my favorite too. Taylor always seemed to girly and Isaac didn’t do anything for me at all.
