Today in music history: 1998

Today we go back to 1998 and find:

"The Boy is Mine" by Brandy and Monica.

I remember loving this song when it first came out.  I had no idea who Monica was, but Brandy had a TV show, and the song was fun, and everyone dueted it at school.

Listening again, though, made me realize what a boring song this was.  There is very little derivations in the notes themselves, and, while I'm sure there were verses, they got lost in the chorus repeated a million times during the song itself.

Not to mention, neither of the girls sounds very good.  I much prefer the Kelly Clarkson/other idol contestant song with a similar theme.

What did you think if this one?
