Friday's List: 10 Embarrassing Songs (That I Still Listen To) on My iPod

Surely I am not the only one who has them. You know, those songs you still listen to but hope no one at the gym knows. I trolled my 5,000+ songs in iTunes to bring you the most cringe-worthy.

  1. Lights, Camera, Action: Mr. Cheeks. Anything by someone named Mr. Cheeks automatically makes the list.
  2. We All Die Young: Steel Dragon. Forget for a moment that Steel Dragon is the fictional band from the movie "Rock Star." There, it's not such a bad song, is it?
  3. Blame It On the Rain: Milli Vanilli. Say what you want, I never stopped loving them. Girl, you know it's true.
  4. Stars Are Blind: Paris Hilton. Okay, I admit it. This is truly a horrible, awful song and should be taken out of my workout mix immediately.
  5. It Wasn't Me: Shaggy. I may or may not own Shaggy's entire "Hot Shot" album. But I'm not telling.
  6. A tie for both P.M. Dawn songs: Set Adrift on Memory Bliss and Looking Through Patient Eyes.
  7. Watch Closely Now: Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand. This is from the remake of "A Star Is Born." I'm not sure if it's embarrassing because it is Kris Kristofferson or Barbra Streisand or both … I think all three?
  8. Hit Me Baby One More Time: Britney Spears. This reminds me of fourth-year beach week, circa 2000, right before graduating college. So I still listen to it. So there.
  9. Can't Help Falling in Love: UB40. If you think back really hard, you might remember this remake. It was on the very first CD I ever bought.
  10. And finally, the best Christmas song ever made. I Still Believe in Santa Claus: New Kids on the Block. Obviously this is in major rotation come December.
I feel cleansed now that all my musical secrets are revealed. Others must have equally embarrassing songs, no? I can't be the only one.
