I heart my i-pod....my whole i-pod
Today my friend Brad came into work, excited about what he was listening to on the radio during his commute. Today's topic on the radio show was "what song are you embarrassed to like". Brad asked me the question, and I ran through my i-tunes library in my head - what do I have that embarrasses me? I threw out to Brad that it would probably be a Barry Manilow tune, but then said that nothing really embarrassed me. Over the course of the day, I've been compiling a mix of songs that were kind of embarrassing to me - kind of a secret shame playlist that I wouldn't want to be caught singing to at the top of my lungs (which is what I do generally when I'm driving by myself) in my car with the windows rolled down.
Here's my playlist:
Reminiscing - Little River Band
Weekend in New England - Barry Manilow
Pop Goes My Heart - Hugh Grant
You won't see me - Anne Murray
Midnight at the Oasis - Maria Muldaur
Forever in Blue Jeans - Neil Diamond
Xanadu - Olivia Newton John
Dance with Me - Orleans
Stars are Blind - Paris Hilton
The lady is a Vamp - Spice Girls
Flowers on the Wall - The Statler Brothers
I go Crazy - Paul Davis
All By Myself - Eric Carmen
Please Come To Boston - Dave Loggins
The Stroke - Billy Squier
Can't Stand Losing You - Andy Williams
Life is a Flower - Ace of Base
Scanning this list I have created, I seem to have a secret love of ballads from the 70's. Not sure why they are so ingrained in me - could be that I had a brother and sister that were teens in the 70's in my impressionable early childhood years. I love these songs, I have them in my i-tunes. I just don't want others to think they are favorites of mine. On second thought - I'm going to own it.
Hey world, check out my no longer secret shame playlist.
I just might put it on i-tunes as a custom i-mix.
Just call me DJ MissAY.
