    Default It's raining guys who liked girls who wore Abercrombie and Fitch

    takes me back to middle school


    35 is far too young. sad


    OS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rich Cronin, former lead singer of the boy band LFO and the writer of its 1999 hit "Summer Girls," died on Wednesday after a battle with leukemia, celebrity news site TMZ reported. He was 35.

    The news was also reported via Twitter by Lance Bass, a former member of 'N Sync, who described Cronin as "an amazing guy." It was not clear where Cronin died.

    The Boston native co-founded LFO -- short for "Lyte Funky Ones" -- in 1995 with Brad Fischetti and Brian Gillis (who was later replaced by Devin Lima). They signed a deal with Lou Pearlman, the now-imprisoned pop impresario behind 'N Sync and the Backstreet Boys.

    But Cronin sought to differentiate his band from other male vocal groups, which relied on outside songwriters and producers to deliver soulful pop hits. LFO introduced hip-hop and rock into the equation, and hit No. 3 on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart with the inescapable summer anthem "Summer Girls."

    The follow-up, "Girl on TV," reached No. 10, but subsequent singles failed to crack the top 40. The band broke up in 2003.

    Cronin was diagnosed with cancer in 2005, and set up a foundation to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    This makes me unusually sad. LFO and Summer Girls will always be something horridly special to me..

    They made incredibly stupid music and equally stupid videos, but this sucks and yes, 35 is too young.

    Their Coachella set was unbelievable.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    oh shit, this is sad.

    this song will always take me back to driving a U-Haul truck all over Scarsdale, lost and ending up in Connecticut while trying to find the parkway to get back to Manhattan.

    Just came in here to make a "At least it wasn't the important LFO" comment, but I see it's already been covered.

    That song was all over the radio during the summer of '99 along with "Steal my Sunshine."
