Your Turn

We did this topic a few months ago, and it is one of the very few I would bother repeating, just because I think answers change, more people come to the site, and it gets everyone in a damn good mood before the weekend. It is probably my favorite topic to discuss with people other than if you could only have one order of french fries ever for the rest of your life, from where would you order them? That isn't the question today, although you are free to answer it as well.

The reason I specifically brought the topic back is because the last time I spoke to someone about it, they told me that there is such a thing as shame Karaoke. Apparently this is not where failed American Idol contestants go to sing songs by Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, but rather where one gets up in front of a crowd of people and sings those songs that you love so damn much but don't want anyone to know.

For example. I know all of you love Wilson Phillips. Don't deny that. Yeah, you might be the biggest damn Kanye fan in the world or think Metallica is the second coming, but when you hear "Hold On" you turn up the radio. Don't lie.

So, please list all of those secret songs you are afraid to admit you love. Also, feel free to link to YouTube so that everyone can click back and forth all weekend.

Backstreet Boys: I Want It That Way (actually, several Backstreet Boys songs, but that one's probably the most embarrassing)

palealebrew10 said...

Oops I did it again by Britney. I love a lot of Britney songs, actually. "Sometimes" is probably the most embarrassing one of the bunch that I love.

"Say you'll be there" by the Spice Girls.

And french fries--arby's curly fries. Amazing. Which is why I stay away.

brum said...

Enty, some of us have no shame button when it comes to singing. I love, love, love Sweet Child of Mine by Gus N Roses.

The ORIGINAL Berardi's french fries at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio. The park bought the franchise several years ago, and the fries have never been quite the same.

AnonMom said...

Oh, yes, big Wilson Phillips fan ... "Hoooooooooooooold on, for one more day...."

I am the queen of dorky music. The queen.

Candy Girl, New Edition
We don’t have to take our clothes off, Jermaine Stewart
Brandy, Looking Glass
Gypsies Tramps and Thieves, Cher
Do you know the way to San Jose, Dionne Warwick

I could go on , but then would really embarrass myself.

Unbalanced said...

Jenn said...

Oooh, AnonMom, I am so with you on those!

Barbie Girl - Aqua (but Rammstein's version is equally inadmittable and hilarious!)

I am sure I will come up with more later!

Mariah Carey "Vision of Love"

Ice Angel said...

Total Eclipse of the Heart-Bonnie Tyler
Goodbye to You-Scandal

Nutty_Flavor said...

"Mmmm-bop." The lyrics are actually kind of profound if you listen to them. I usually have to take it down a register or two, however.

Rocket Queen said...

Agreed on Wilson Phillips, but I also really love "Rock Me Amadeus" by Falco, "One Night in Bangkok" by Murray Head, "Games" by NKOTB, "Ice Ice Baby" by who else, yes! to David on "I Want it That Way" by Backstreet Boys and most everything by Milli Vanilli. So there!

Terrance said...

I am so ashamed of myself for this..

Lil Wayne "Lollipop"- I must admit that I like Framing Hanley's cover of it better

Rhianna "Umbrella"

Lady GaGa- Just Dance

Terrance said...

Montana Marriott-
Don't be ashamed to love Babs! I adore her and almost everything that she sings. Funny Girl is one of my all time favorites.

Green Wave Gal said...

Pretty much at least half my ipod...I'll add some here when I get home to see my itunes.

Fries--Nathan's.
I'm a NY-er through and through!

Nature Girl said...

Please Don't Go Girl
NKOTB w/ Joe Mac vocals

Tell me you'll stay
Never ever go away
I need you
I guess I always will
Girl, youre my best friend
Girl, youre my love within
I just want you to know
That I will always love you
Ooh, baby

I think the "Ooh, baby" as sung by Joe's 14 year old voice just makes it Gold.

AnonMom said...

As for fries, there's this little restaurant in Westwood Village called Damon & Pythias and they have these garlic/blue cheese fries ... HEAVEN!

121007 said...

ooh Hilary I was just about to type the same.. its always the first one I fire up on guitar hero!

a different taste but just as secret : gloria estefan - cant stay away from you.

Christine said...

Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover, Sophie B. Hawkins

and

Girls Aloud - Something Kinda Oooh and Sexy! No No No

Napoleon In Rags said...

I don't have any real guilty pleasure songs, because everyone who knows me knows my taste in music is fairly cracktastic. Most of my favorites are of the serious singer / songwirter or fucked up experimental artsy tracks, but I make no excuses for the Cher, the Clay Aiken, the Britney Spears, the ABBA - if liking a song means someone's going to think less of me, I could care less what they think in general.

I am, in fact, more likely to raise eyebrows with the artists I don't like. Tell most people you could care less for Neil Young / Rolling Stones / Nirvana / Elvis Presley and it's like you killed their puppy. :P

Kat said...

Gotta admit, I always turn up Katy Perry's stuff.

Alexis said...

Ok Ok I am finally admitting this out loud:

Girl You Know Its True by Milli Vanilli. I even tried to buy this on itunes but couldn't. My God. I should just crawl under my desk and die. But of course, there are more:

Shake Your Love--Debbie Gibson

Mo Money Mo Problems--Diddy and the Notorious BIG

In da Club--50 Cent

Right Here Waiting--Richard Marx

Maneater--Hall & Oates

Ok I have a lot more, but I am really embarrassed now!

Kaitx said...

I'm a huge metal and southern rock fan, known for being a serious rock chick and I have Britney, Christina and Beyonce albums next to Slayer, Corrosion of Conformity and Alice in Chains. I also like Nickelback (very secretly), which is just WRONG!

Lynne said...

Don Henley's "End of the Innocence"

There, I said it.

LaLoo said...

Terrance - good call on Framing Hanley's version. I hadn't heard it before but I just went to YouTube and it's awesome. I could do without the minute and a half of b.s. at the beginning though.

As for my guilty pleasure song: "Black Velvet," Alannah Myles.

Yes.

Mooshki said...

Re-posting with YouTube links.

Grumpy's waffle fries with seasoned sour cream. To die for!

I'm going to throw the doors of shame wide open for this one.

"Killing Me Softly," Roberta Flack (always makes me cry!)
Pretty much anything by Coldplay, The Pussycat Dolls, Britney, or FergieOh boy, this is really bad:
"Heartbeat" Don JohnsonHey, at least there's no Celine Dion, I do have some standards.

Almost forgot, "The Pina Colada Song!" BEST SONG EVER!!!!

Lynne said...

Oh, and Don Henley's "Boys of Summer." I bought Ray-bans because of that song. I still wear the same pair, with prescription lenses now...

Sure, the videos are pretentious, being in black and white and all, but I still get the hot panties for Mr Henley when I see and hear him.

Vogue-Madonna
Rocket Man-Elton John
Just Dance-Lady GaGa

I just realized I have incredibly bad taste in music.

Lynne said...

I got a virus on the www.dailymotion.com site, so beware. I'm sorry!

Well, like anyone's gonna look at a Don Henley video other than me...

:-)

Ms Cool said...

I dig anything by Air Supply. Pretty much the only cheesy ballads I like.

~crazy peanut~ said...

I just downloaded to my iPod.....Rupert Holmes, The Pina Colada song and Never Been To Me by Charlene.


Man I cant believe I said that out loud. lol

Booster Seat said...

Haha, I watched the video for "Total Eclipse of the Heart" yesterday for some odd reason and had several "WTF!?" moments. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=840B27zYfOk

Mine would probably be "Tubthumping" - Chumbawumba

Cindy said...

All I Have to Give -- Backstreet Boys and most of N'Sync's stuff. 51 today and still listening to boy bands...how embarrasing

As for the fries -- you can't beat Hamburger Hamlet's shoestrings dipped in their ranch dressing. God I miss living in LA :(

jax said...

Jump - Kriss Kross
it Takes Two- Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock.
Girls- Beastie Boys
Sundown- Gordon Lightfoot
It's a Heartache- Bonnie Tyler

and the most embarassing.....

Songbird- Anne Murray.

ElsieFire said...

I can't even type the name or song, I'm so embarrassed.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu_moia-oVI

Bodie said...

LOL @ Jax for admitting the Anne Murray song!

Dijea said...

Hot Child in the City

Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown - Jim Croce

I also will turn up anything by Hall & Oates or Air Supply or even I'm going to say it Bread.

Christine said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7NFKwPWIJc

ElsieFire said...

nancer said...

wow, no 'anonymous' option? ok, what the hell. i love 'air supply.'

hammyjam said...

Air Supply
Foreigner
Richard Marx
Toto
Air Supply

:)

mngddess said...

Don't Talk To Strangers by Rick Springfield. Saw two of his concerts, one where I was so close I could have walked up and shook his hand. (He was in a dinky auditorium in Audubon, NJ.) I am actually trying tofind that sone for my ringtone..

Actually, what I am a leetle embarrased to admit is that I am a 46 yr old white woman who loooves hip-hop. And N-Sync.

mngddess said...

Oh, and I am pointing and laughing at Jax for Songbird by Anne Murray. But then again, I love Cher's "Love and Understanding"..

mngddess said...

Oh, OH! My WORST guilty pleasure is (don't throw anything) is, um, Britney Spears songs. NOT ALL OF THEM. Just..some of them.

"I'm a slaaave...for you..."

Green Wave Gal said...

Also love Hootie and the Blowfish! :)

Dr. Spaceman said...

I agree with so many of these that have already been listed.

Here are some of my current faves:
Fernando by ABBA
Puh-puh-puh-Poker Face by Lady Gaga

I also ALWAYS turn up the volume and sing along at the top of my lungs to that David Cook song...something about leaving the lights on. I know the song itself probably isn't that embarrassing to like, it's just the way I act when I'm singing along.

kelly said...

I forget I love it until I hear it and find myself singing to "Sweet Caroline" and I still have a Schoolgirl Crush on Rick Springfield and love most of his songs (there are many more than you would think). My husband has proved his love to me by getting us 2 tickets to see him at Casino Rama in July. Don't judge me lol

Green Wave Gal said...

Kelly-I'm judging you and my judgment is that you're AWESOME! :)

julie said...

The Sign by Ace of Base
Mmmm Bop by Hanson
Shiney Shiney by Hayzee Fantayzee
Come Go With Me by Expose'

I fricken love "In the Ayer" by Flo Rida, which is only embarrassing for my kids since I'm 41 and do a little car dancing when it comes on the radio.

Mooshki said...

You guys know that Rick Springfield is going to be on a few episodes of Californication, basically playing himself, right?

kelly said...

Green Wave Girl:

Thank you I didn't notice your post until after I posted. I was starting to think I was the only one who would admit to being a fan now there are two of us lol. I have all of his cd's (I know but a friend of mine got them for me) and also really like Don't Talk To Strangers.

kelly said...

Mooshki:

No I didn't know that but thanks. I should get back into watching that show again I only watched the first season but really liked it.

Caroline said...

Love Song by Tesla. I am mortified that I love it, but I do. Especially the long instrumental beginning. And I really didn't like Wilson Phillips. They are awful. Just awful.

Caroline said...

Oh, and for french fries: Cedar Point's (it's an amusement park in Sandusky, OH) chili and fries are to die for.

Green Wave Gal said...

Californication is filming here on campus (UCLA) as we speak!

Mooshki said...

GWG, you should hook up with Duchovny! ;)

Green Wave Gal said...

He's cute and all, but I hear he's been around! No thanks! ;)

ElsieFire said...

Uh, Julie, just checking, but are you ME???

I too, love the man Flo-Rida..and hip hop.

Kills me really, because I am so white I'm translucent. I had to go and Urban Dictionary a LOT of phrases!!!

I think that is actually more embarrassing than my aforementioned love of Flo-Rida.

::hangs head in shame::

Wonder Woman said...

Even my 12 year old daughter hates her but...i love See You Again by Miley Cyrus. I love to embarrass her by cranking the tunes and singing it when her friends are around. Being a mom is fun!

Catherine said...

Pretty much anything by the Carpenters!

bionic bunny! said...

THANK YOU, CATHERINE!
anything karen c. sings, i can karaoke. i grew up singing to her, and my range is the same. after a couple of drinks i can still blow the mister away because i can do her dead on.
although when i was younger, julie andrews was my idol, and my dream was performing "my fair lady" (i came thisclose)!
barry manilow, because there's some actual music in there, chicago (oh, "our" song is "your my inspiration"), john denver, hell, anything i can find the harmony to.
my brother taught me a lot, singing wise, and i still go for anything with a good harmony.
the jimmy buffett thing? it's the fantasy in the music. "yes, i am a pirate- 200 years too late..."

a las doce said...

I am NOT ashamed! However, I draw the line at boy bands.

Mariah Carey - I'm in Heaven (with my boyfriend)
Fantasia - Baby Mama
Wham - Wake me Up
Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy (my 8 year old and I improvise or own words)

Production Girl said...

Hello ENT!!! been a while

McDonald's fries......


as for my embarrassing song?

"Im a Barbie girl, in the Barbie world, life in plastic, its fantastic...."


now shhhh....dont tell anyone, lol.

selenakyle said...

What?! No Anonymous option tonight?

Sheesh.

This is embarrassing coming from a Rage Against The Machine girl here in the modern age, but my song would be Bad Company's "Shooting Star" from around 1975, when I was all of 11 years old.

"Don't you know..."

I can sing every word, and I belt it OUT.

"Course, I've never sung it at Karaoke, so who knows if I can sing the damn song or not...

yeah, good times

Mooshki said...

Ooh, Wham is a good one! :)

Janelle said...

I have the CD of the Carpenter's Greatest Hits and LOVE it!!

I also have a fondness for the Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville duets--All My Life and Don't Know Much being my favourites, but anything off the Cry Like A Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind album.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soO0CMnU9Bo

I am only somewhat ashamed to admit that I had to play this 2x through so I could sing both parts.

Anotheramy said...

I can dream about you from Streets of Fire. Loved the group in the video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eujhslo2kqs - even though it was lipsynced... :)

Lauren said...

Photograph by Def Leppard
(When I saw them perform it live, I thought I was going to have a heart attack)
Wannabe by The Spice Girls
Release Me by Wilson Phillips.

Oh, and In N Out fries animal style. DEEEELICIOUS.

Lauren said...

Lyne- Don Henley's End of the Innocense...

aaaaaaah you took me back

I LOVE THAT SONG.

Merlin D. Bear said...

I catch worlds of grief at work because I use Pandora and the music I have programmed on my "station" causes a bunch of heads to turn.
To see me, you'd never expect that this 48 year old white redneck from Atlanta can (and usually does) sing along with Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, and a number of other artists from the 40's, 50's and 60's.
Of course, the fact that I love to belt out a showtune too just goes to show that while I might have missed out on the hair cutting gene and the decorating gene, I more than made up for it in the showtunes gene.

Bebedog said...

Caroline and Wil - It's all good. Tesla's Love Song is AWESOME. And Ambrosia, I think I had their songs on my iPod like 5 different times because I kept adding them I liked them so much... :)

Too Fun today people. I even found some songs I had forgotten about until reading this.

My favorite is a song called Piano in the Dark. I don't even know who sings it, but I love that song.

B626 said...

"loveFool' by the Cardigans.

Lynne,
Nothing's better than a Don Henley song on the radio in the car on a hot summer day. Turn it up loud. I love The Last Worthless Evening You'll Ever Spend, too.

farmgirl said...

Afternoon Delight - Starland Vocal Band
I think I love you - David Cassidy
Raindrops keep faillin on my head - BJ Thomas

Mooshki said...

Bebedog, I love that song too. It's probably the one by Brenda Russell, but there's a Nina version too.

K said...

Bad Medicine - Bon Jovi
Separate Ways - Journey
Making Love Out of Nothing at All - Air Supply

farmgirl said...

Oh yes
I love a Rainy Night - Eddie Rabbit

BTW - you guys are embarrassed by the music that I brag that I listen to - John Denver, Neil Diamond, Babs, Carpenters, ABBA, Show Tunes, Def Leppard, B-52s

If they were a secret, the only music I could ever talk about woud be Amy Winehouse and She & Him!!!!!

Jennifer said...

Well, the 80's are alive and well on my iPod. Not too much shame though. One song that I LOVE that no one else has mentioned yet is T'Pau "Heart and Soul". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJK7dMSd31k

ambernyc said...

Disney songs. Shit from Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan etc. I grew up loving those movies and their songs, and today I am a complete dork and have no shame in still listening to them.

Also I'm a closet Marilyn Manson fan. His first three or four albums are awesome, anyway.

Pretty odd combination, heh.

Mags said...

Mock if you must, but my favorite 80s song is "Make Me Lose Control" by Eric Carmen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zajTU5h_YGM

And I am never ashamed to karaoke. :)

Lissa THEEE Pissa said...

OK- after MUCH thought, and debating the fact of whether I even have ANY guilty pleasure or even the least bit of bad taste in music, I have concluded the following:

My biggest musical misstep is the purchase of NKOTB's "Face the Music" when I was 16. This was long after they "sucked." I didn't care. I proudly marched into the store and bought the disc and even kept it on my visor for all my friends to see. I had a convertible when I was a teen, and was quite open about playing it whenever I pleased....

shakey said...

Happy Birthday to Cindy!

I want this mp3 so badly:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlYJHCJo3oo

Adam and The Ants. Brooks and Dunn. Tom Jones. Anyone remember this song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1m5ieCWCK8&feature=PlayList&p=0BC1215E8DDE6B99&index=0
If you look on the side, you'll see a few other songs that I have on my iPod.

shakey said...

oh, and to be ├╝ber shameful - Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield. Sad.

HautieTx said...

So I have a long list of shame.... white girl in Texas driving her Nissan ZX singing to her tunes... with my big ass hair.

I love all my cheesy 80's music. Granted I graduated in '85... the height of cheesy. The college graduation was in '89. How I miss the Rock, Rap and R&B of the 80's.

My list of shame....

Your Love ... The Outfield.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78pQOkLTdFo

Do me! .... Bel Biv Devoe
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMzZYTZnfzI

Straight Up! ... Paula "I don't drink" Abdul
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5A3yF0bjLo

Cherry Pie ... Warrant
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdDxz2bkfhE

Rock you like a Hurricane ... Scorpions
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rB8HudfbaTE

Here I go again ... Whitesnake
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKTiwCez6Zs&feature=channel

I want to know what love is ... Foreigner
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz2cUX0CNA8
Feels like the first time...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpeahgdzYp4&feature=related

Actually any Foreigner... Double vision, Urgent, Hot blooded,Jukebox Hero... all of them.

Good grief now I need to find my can of Aqua Net and tease my hair up....

Sadly I have admit I also love Nickelback. So I blame my love of 80's Rock for making me love Nickelback.

dbfreak said...

Most of the music I like would be considered shameful - 80's metal, 70's & 80's pop, disco but my main genre is classic & "alternative" rock, so here's my real shame list:

A horrible, horrible secret of mine:

I LOVE "hot n cold" by Katy Perry. Whenever I discover a new song I like I replay it over and over all day. One time I listened to it on repeat ..12 times. I'm a little worn out on it now, but when I hear it, I will bop along, believe it.

I really wish the anonymous option was up lol.

"Party All the Time" by Eddie Murphy.

BARRY MANILOW!!!!

My mother was a huge fan and the first lyrics I ever learned were to "Copacabana"--I was four. I can recite them to this day...and I'll never forget my little brother, who just couldn't figure the words at the beginning and used to sing:

"At the Copa, oh manna manna"

Oh - songs that make me cry - 3 off the top of my head, all country songs:

Flies on the Butter by the Judds and There Goes My Life by Kenny Chesney. Embarrassing when you're at work listening on your iPod when someone asks you a question and you have to blink the tears away.

You Decorated My Life by Kenny Rogers is the third, but I'm not ashamed when I tear up because my uncle always used to sing that song to his nieces and nephews.

I am a kid of the nineties, so...
East 17: "Stay Another Day". I admit it.

And I goddamn CRIED when I saw Guns 'n' Roses' "November Rain" music video for the first time (ya, I was 28 years old).

AnonMom said...

Mooshki, I am slightly embarrassed that I can't stop replaying Jon Secada's "Just Another Day". Wrong, but so right.
