This post is about all the crap on my iPod playlist that I turn the volume down if someone is near me just so they don’t overhear what I’m listening to. Why am I doing this? I have to learn to accept me for me. These are all songs that I hoped no one would ever look at my iPod and see on there. I figure since I’m nervous to have people see it I should get over myself and publicly admit to it. I’ve learned long ago that if something scares you, it’s probably what you need to do. I also believe everyone has songs like this, we all have guilty pleasures.
Yes, I have metal, country, rock, jazz and all kinds of stuff, but here’s what I’d rather have people not now about.
Lady Gaga – entire discography. Only complaint is that I don’t need 6 remixes of Bad Romance. The released version is the best, the rest are all crap.
Katy Perry – entire discography. First album is a lot better, more indie-chic-rock, but I like everything. Plus her video with Elmo rocks my world. Her SNL appearance with the Elmo shirt is also really nice.
Spice Girls – 2 Become 1. That’s right, Spice Girls. Once or twice a year for no damn reason this song gets stuck in my head out of the blue. I bought it and I do listen to it. Random Spice Girls story; back in 96 or whenever they were popular I walked in on a buddy masturbating to the video of “Say You’ll Be There”. I still make fun of him for that.
Britney Spears – the single 3 plus the album Circus. I initially just had the song 3. A girl I was courting a while back talked me into getting Circus cause she loved it so much. I do not like her earlier stuff, but lately she’s gone more “industrial pop” (don’t know if that’s a term or not, but it’s how I view it). Her music is no longer all bubble gum, it’s got an edge to it.
Not that it really helps me out but… when I sort my iTunes by play count the first one of these songs/artists to show up is Britney Spears with 3. It’s not till number thirty on that list, it’s way down there.
Notable but not worth commenting on: Alicia Keys, Avril Lavigne, Michelle Branch, The Wreckers, G-Dragon and 2NE1 (the last two are K-pop)
Who wants to step up and comment with their embarrassing songs?
