It’s almost too much to bear, isn’t it? Knowing this is the last time we will probably EVER see the boys together in a music video? “Keep getting the feeling you want to leave this all behind,” sings Harry to the camera. “Thought we were going strong?” he asks. “I thought we were holding on? Aren’t we?” Only JUST, Harry. We’re only hanging by a thread over here! Images of the band’s history flash by and SOMEBODY MUST BE CHOPPING ONIONS because suddenly there are tears rolling down my cheeks. I call my 16-year-old niece for reassurance. “Oh, they’re TOTALLY getting back together,” she promises me. “I give this hiatus a year, tops.” Oh, to be young and naive – I’ve been through this before! – Backstreet Boys! N Sync! NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK! – but her words sooth my ragged soul. Maybe they will get back together. Maybe they will.
Until then, watch “History” below.
