Reviving the spirit of the Lost Weekend, what are the song(s) that you have on your iPod/other music player that you secretly like, but would never admit to listening to? Either light pop songs for the serious minded, or dark metal songs for the cheerful, it doesn’t matter.
I have three George Jones songs. They are horrifyingly bad, which makes them deliciously good. They are: Wild Irish Rose, Smack Dab and Small Y’all. The terrible rhymes in the last two are particularly juicy.
I have some Celtic folk tunes that are pretty embarassing. They remind me of my dad’s old records that he used to play when I was really little. So I have a scratchy (scratchy because it was originally recorded in the 1930s) old recording a “Wee Deoch and Doris” and similar stuff that I found on iTunes.
Sigh. I could find a lot of potentially embarassing stuff in my collection, but the latest one of those to play on my mp3 player(always on random) just might be near the top. I shouldn’t say this but…
The theme to ‘Super Nanny’.
I’m sorry I can’t help it, but I imagine the person signing it as looking like Jim Carry as Ace Ventura at the mental hospital or Officer Doofy from Scary Movie 1; often I will sing along in character. It cracks me up every time.
Same as last time, Music of the Night, sung by David Cook. An Andrew Lloyd Webber song sung by an American Idol winner. There’s just no excuse for that. But I still listen to it when it comes around on shuffle. I don’t know why.
Man Like Me, by Robert Downey Jr. He’s not a very good singer, and he can’t write lyrics to save his life. But I’ve got a crush on him, so it stays in rotation.
I have way, way more Alanis Morrisette songs than I’m comfortable with.
Bostone, I still love Who let the Dogs Out?
Oh, and I have a bunch of folky 70’s love balads, but they’re all there because of my sister. Don’t know if that counts.
