White Flag

I have many ideas on posts floating around in my tiny little pea head, but no time nor inclination to write them at the moment. Work is out of control busy, P is sprouting what better be all her fucking molars simultaneously, I've had a cold for weeks, and a 24 hour day is about 24 hours too short. I don't have a sense of self at the moment, and each day is a blur of fuzzy headedness.

With that said, I'm going to take up Oro's challenge, even if it is lazy blogging. Oro sayeth:

"Out yourself! What musician/genre/song do you love, but would never ever ever enjoy outside the privacy of your home/car/mp3 player for fear of being ridiculed by friends and loved ones? Furthermore, I dare you to go to YouTube and either embed said songs onto your blog or provide links - c'mon, you know you want to share...if you're totally chicken, I suppose a link to Amazon or WikiPedia would be acceptible. I'd love to be able to go to sites where I could hear the music."

As you hopefully know by now, I looooove music. I need to listen to lots of music every day, and I trawl music blogs looking for new stuff all the time. I have very eclectic tastes, and with that variety comes a love of music which some might mock. They can bite me. So, here is just a smattering of some of my music loves that I'm usually not *too* ashamed to confess to adoring.



Styx: Come Sail Away. My fondness for this song started when it was used in a great scene in one of my favourite TV shows ever, Freaks and Geeks. I have mentioned before on this very blog that P and I have Come Sail Away danceathons when we party and get down like a couple of madwomen.



Destiny's Child: Bootylicious. I like Beyonce and Destiny's Child. There, I said it. Though I don't own any albums of either the group or Beyonce solo, I have many an mp3. Sorry Helen, I know you shed a tear or two of frustration every time I declare my Beyonce love.



Girls Aloud: Call the Shots. When it comes to British girl bands, I'm usually a Sugababes kind of girl, as is The Dude who ADORES the Sugababes. His mp3 player is packed with the most pop-oriented, camp music you can imagine. He has at least 2 Erasure songs on there, I'm just saying...



Limp Bizkit: Break Stuff. I'll even go out on a limb and confess that when YouTubing this, I thought to myself that I liked a few of the results in the Limp Bizkit search. Hmph. Thanks to Major Bedhead for for giving me the strength to admit that I too enjoy a little Fred Durst. Anyway, I like some shouty music that isn't too metal-like. When I'm being a serious music lover, I'd say System of a Down filled this requirement, not Limp Bizkit.

The final video is one which I genuinely embarrassed about. Don't tell anyone, please, as my street cred will be completely compromised.

Here it is...

Brace yourselves...



Paris Hilton: Nothing in This World. There's nothing I can say to make this right.

Also, as an aside, I may :::cough::: be able to :::cough::: convert YouTube videos to mp3. Cough. Just in case there are any of you to whom I owe a favour.

Your turn - either on your own blog or in the comments section. I suspect it doesn't get much worse than Paris Hilton, but have a go anyway.

Paris Hilton??! Good lord. I shouldn't really say anything because the stuff I'd pick for a meme like this would probably make you vomit.


Break Stuff is a fantastic song.

Helen said...

Paris Hilton? Girls Aloud? THE SUGABABES?

Who are you?

*quickly hides music on her iPod, including Abba's "Lay All Your Love on Me" and Duran Duran's new one *

Meg said...

Cause sometimes when we touch, the honesty's too much, and I have to close my eyes and hide.... I wanna hold you till i die, till we both break down and cry, I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides.....

Thanks! Suddenly my preference to drive our car to the tunes of Kylie's album Fever doesn't seem so bad anymore. :-)

PiquantMolly said...

OK, OK, you may have just convinced me to post again . . .

But Paris Hilton? I don't know if we can be friends after this.

Flicka said...

Oh, *Pru* (she said, in deep tones of disappointment.) Paris Hilton? Seriously? I don't know if we can be friends anymore. That is the depth of my hatred toward Paris Hilton. Anything but her.

j said...

2 Erasure songs? Really??...Hrmmm..

I kind of LOVE Beyonce. And ABBA. And Dolly Parton. Though, I think those choices make me quirky.

Paris Hilton? I am not computing.

Yay baby! Embrace your inner cheesemonger!

I have an Enrique Iglesias track or two on my ipod. So catchy and pointless.

But worse! Even worse! I really like one of Victoria Beckham's solo tracks- what's the title- "something something heart has a mind of its ooooown"- and she is floating around looking not too stick insecty in the video and it's all good.

neko said...

Styx and Paris... yep. I can see it. That last video was awesome. Her production people are so tight it hurts.

This was fun. We don't even need to go into my Cher addiction.

fisher queen said...

I didn't think it could get much worse than Styx, but oh I was wrong...I am shocked, shocked! I knew the Johnny Cash thing was just a front.

Never mind that I bought the Christina Aguillera album with 'Beautful' on it. Or the fact that the man I chose to marry went to a {{{{Foghat}}}} concert. (He is much, much older than I...)

Rachel said...

I... cannot be shamed.

ABBA? Yep.
Weird Al Yankovic? Sure.
Rick Astley? YOU BETCHA.

I have some Styx on the ol' iPod. I'm cool with your Paris thing, too - just don't listen to it too terribly often or you'll catch some kind of STD from it, I think.

Kristi said...

Paris Hilton sings? Where the hell have I been?
Okay, I love Josh Groban. Please do not breathe a word of this to anyone, or my street cred will be ruined.

If I was 12yrs old, I would fuck her too.
