Sometimes I find myself listening to songs on the radio that I think I shouldn’t. Not for inappropriate content reasons (although maybe I should look into that…) but because I find that when I listen to these songs I have to make sure my windows are up so that no one can hear what I am listening to. Since when did I become so embarrassed about my musical taste?
I’d like to pretend I listen to really cool stuff all the time. You know, like Smashing Pumpkins and Snow Patrol. (I know, that doesn’t sound cool to you.) Stuff that I would gladly tell anyone that I like. But apparently I am ashamed of about half of what I listen to. So, to publicly shame myself, I am going to confess some of what I am listening to (in the car, with the windows rolled up of course). I do this in hopes that if I can tell the entire www, then maybe I don’t have to be so embarrassed when I am driving next to complete strangers that I will never see again.
Here are a few that come to my mind (I know there are LOTS more):
*Shakira – Hips Don’t Lie (oh the shame)
*Jay Z – Forever Young (it’s so awful)
*Jason Derulo – What’cha Say (I can’t believe I just wrote that)
*Kanye West – Heartless (ok, and The Fray’s cover)
I am still unwilling to admit which Black Eyed Peas, Taylor Swift, and Justin Timberlake songs I may or may not be partial to. I have to go hide in shame now. Or listen to The Fray’s cover. Hard to pick.
Your turn, confess!
