10 Songs I'm Ashamed to Admit I Like
Oh the shame! Oh the bad music! There's really no particular order to these songs, so I'll just lay em' down, and leave it to you to judge me.
1) Where's The Love by Hanson
YEAH!!! I'm loving it again even as I'm playing it. Oh Hanson, I don't care if you were little boys when you wrote this song, and I don't care that The Man was once heard to say that the lead Hanson singer looked "like a chick." No, I don't care about any of that. You were such talented little kids! Okay, maybe I'm a little bit ashamed, especially as I remember chugging on down the street with your tape playing in my WALKMAN.
2) You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban
Well, here's your nice, typical, greeting card inspiration set to music. Waa, I don't care. Even if everyone else is gagging, Josh, you raise ME UP to walk on stormy seas. I am strong, when I am on your shoulders (but YOUR knees are probably buckling). Whatever that means...
3) Safety Dance by Men Without Hats
The song is terrible, the video is kind of retarded, and the guy's voice is completely ridiculous. That being said, LET'S DANCE!
4) A New Day Has Come by Celine Dion
Sigh. I'm going to get hammered for this one. Okay, whatever. I still like to belt it out when I'm all alone in my car.
5) Hélène by Roch Voisine
Some nice syrup from my Canadian boyfriend, Roch Voisine. No, don't listen to them Roch. Don't let them call you "cheesy." Je t'aime Roch! Je t'aime!
6) Addicted by Enriqué Iglesias
I have to confess something: I love Enriqué. I wish I had all his cd's. I don't care what you say! I don't care that he sounds like he's whining/crying in most of his songs. I even loved him when he had that hideous mole on his face. Enriqué, you had me at Bailamos
7) 7 O'Clock by London Quireboys
Every time The Man hears me either play, or even just mention this song, he shakes his head in pure disbelief. Whatevs, like the Quireboys say, it's 7:00, time for the par-tay. This makes good sense too, because I'm usually pretty tired by 10.
8) No, I'm too ashamed to admit this one.
okay, I'll try. Sigh.
8) Somebody to Love by Justin Bieber
What can I say--I have this strange weakness for dance music. I love dance music. I love crappy dance-themed movies. I love to dance. This song is catchy. Yes, the Bieb probably only comes up to my hoots, and it'll be a whole new ball o'wax when his voice changes. All I can do is apologize.
9) Somewhere sung by Barbra Streisand
Show tunes, anyone? No? No? Hmph. Still, doesn't this song just GET YA RIGHT HERE??? Come on, sing it with me: there's a place for MEEEE, somewhere a place for MEEE, peace and QUIET and open air! WAAAAIT FOR MEEEE, SOMEWHERE!!!" Seriously, I need to go to that place. You know I do.
Yes, I like dance music. I also like belting out show tunes.
10) Rump Shaker by Wreckx-n-effect
If the song isn't bad enough, check out the nickname of whoever posted it on youtube. Sigh. Oh come on, like you don't lurv some nice, sexist, degrading-to-women type music? Oh, you don't? Yeah, er, me neither.
Okay, you can all settle down now. You've all had a good laugh, I'm sure, but now it's time to FESS UP and tell me your dark secret songs!
