LTP: Most Embarrassing Song on your iTunes

We’ve all done it: accidentally added a song to our iPods or mp3 players that was really only ever intended for kitchen jam sessions or singing karaoke in your bedroom. You’ve scrambled to turn it off before people could see the album cover flash accusingly at them. You’ve probably tried and failed to turn the volume down before anyone else heard the opening chords. There was that moment of silent acknowledgment. Maybe you’re the rare breed that allows enough of a silent buffer between songs, so you have time to switch out before anyone in your car is any the wiser.

So tell us, what is the most embarrassing song on your iTunes or in your music collection?

I’m still jamming to “Say You’ll Be There,” overextending my middle school Spice Girls phase. Also a lot of early ’90s dance music, but I’m not embarrassed about that.

(Editor’s note: There is no shame in the Spice Girls. None.)

I think there’s some Nickelback on there. Almost positive there’s some Limp Bizkit. Oh, and the DJ Assault songs should probably get me kicked out of feminism, but they’re just SO awful that they’re funny. Like, my brain can’t accept that someone would actually write a song called “Ass N Titties” without it being a joke.

SONGS. There is no one embarrassing song. I have:

Spice Girls – Holla (damn you Ginger!)
All of NSYNC’s albums
All of my favorite Backstreet Boys songs
The entire Blackout album by Britney Spears

And I have no shame….unless they pop up on Shuffle while I’m driving. Then the windows go up or the volume goes down

I have an entire playlist entitled “Cheese” which includes, but is not limited to, Meatloaf’s I would Do Anything For Love, Peter Cetera’s Glory of Love, James Blunt’s Goodbye My Lover, and the most epic jam of all time, Celine Dion’s It’s All Coming Back to Me Now. I am not ashamed, even though I should be. I blast that shit and sing along to every damn word in the car.
