Re: Milkshake, Boys, Yard.

Sean has written up an embarassing entry about his musical guilty pleasures, as saccharine a fluff-pop train wreck as you’re likely to find.

So, team, let’s not leave the man hanging.

My short list of Songs I Am Ashamed To Admit That I Enjoy are:

  • “Rhythm Of Love” by DJ Company. I’m especially fond of the “Euromix” version of this song, quell horreur.
  • “Rhymin’ And Stealin'” by the Beastie Boys. I’ve got that feeling.
  • The Pet Shop Boys, “Being Boring”. I am not proud.
  • “You Spin Me ‘Round” by Dead Or Alive. Genius. 80’s genius, admittedly, but genius nevertheless.
  • All 4 One, “She’s Got Skillz”. Sampled in approximately a zillion commercials, you say? Yes, yes it was.
  • Baby Got Back by Sir Mix A Lot. Yes, I do indeed like the aforementioned big butts. I cannot lie.
  • Kelis, “Milkshake”. Just terrible, but I cannot turn it off. Send help.
  • Nickelback’s cover of Saturday Night’s All Right For Fighting. Just entertaining the idea of enjoying a Nickelback tune makes me feel vaguely dirty. Strange that the only song of theirs that rocks in anything more than a subatomic measure is an Elton John cover.

That’s a short list of what I’ve got in the player right now. I’ll add more as they come to me, if I feel like admitting to them.

    My friends and I have the concept of a “Secret Top Ten”. This is based on the premise that everyone has at least ten songs that they are ashamed that they like. So, if they catch you singing along to something embarassing like “Dirty” by Christina Aguilera, you can just say “Secret Tope Ten”, and no one is allowed to mock you for it.
