I am ashamed...

I have several of their songs on my new MP3 *hides*

Anything Eurobeat. Pop in some Dave Rodgers and I am a happy, albeit very embarassed lady if anyone else is within earshot.
pixel
Sometimes I get embarassed through natural tendency, but catch myself in the process. Instead of turning it down, I turn it up, because I honestly think its ridiculous to be embarassed of what I listen to.

How about if you were listening to Three 6 Mafia?

It is indeed hard for a pimp who exploits and degrades women.

But since your tastes are uber-1334 I guess you wouldn't have that problem.

What, three-6 doesn't get automatic credibility with the Oscar???


my guilty pleasure would have to be No Doubt, who were cool when Tragic Kingdom came out but now are right up there with good charlotte and emo.

I'm paraniod, so i'm embarassed to listen to anything around anyone...I'm overly polite...when I'm in my car, I keep the volume ultra-low and sometimes off (especially at red lights), just because I'm aware other drivers are about and might take offense at my music (or just look at me wierd because I keep game OST's in my car and listen to them regularly....

unless i'm pissed, then I'll blare Dimmu Birgir as loud as I can in front of retirement homes...

Lots of crap. Especially RAP and COUNTRY!

This one time I took the Prodigy to work and played it cause I figured no one would mind, after all it's the Prodigy. Unfortunately they all hated it and made fun of my to no end from that day forth. Fuckers.

How the fuck can they not like Prodigy!?

That's what I said.

I was working under a world-reknown chef, great guy, had much epicurian knowledge to impart on the youth("How old are you?" '18.' "22? Awesome have a beer!") working in his high-volume baby in Bend, OR... Heh heh heh... Those guys... Such a rock-star crew, hoi vay... I'm working my ass off, 666 Faranheit Degree oven roaring at my back, plating 250 people an hour(no lie, wood-ovens and grills and rottiserie... ugh) and I can hear Prodigy going off in the back, and I see my coworker frolicking like a ballerina through the line everytime he came by. Seriously, Prodigy is great. Had a chance to burn ALL the albums, but totally blew that chance.

I have a ton of songs that I love, but are really are kind of embarassing to admit to listening to in public. I really, deeply love most hits from the mid 80s - the early 90s. Ice, Ice, Baby; I Touch Myself; Come on Eileen; I think I'm turning Japanese; and a million others.

Why? Because they are what I remember hearing on the radio while I still listened to the radio. They just make me feel good. Chris Rock has a bit where he says that the music that you listen to when you start getting laid is the music you'll love for the rest of your life. This is a similar situation, really. Just remove the coitus from the analogy and you have the reason why I love that music that isn't technically as accomplished as my general music fare. I associate it with pleasant things.

If Chris Rock is right I'm going to be listening to Wailing Banshees scream about how much they hate men.
AWESOME.
"Granddad, how come you still listen to Bikini Kill?"
"Shaddup whitey!"

What kind of Opera? What about it do you find embarrassing? I just don't really see Opera as an embarrassing genre in any way, shape, or form.

I can't stop listening to this thing. http://dojo.fi/~rancid/loituma__.swf

I've tried drowning it out with Spice Girls music and then dunking my head into icy cold water, but that only made things worse.


Note: this may lower sanity levels. Further. Beyond the negative mark. You have been warned.

Hehe... Spice Girls "Spice World" was my very first CD.

From what I can tell, though, I should be ashamed for listening to Aqua, they're the people who did "Barbie Girl." It makes me sad, 'cuz I tink sum o' doze B coo.'
staff

But Aqua were awesome because they made fun of the whole bubblegum pop thing for a while. Even if you're slapstick, as long as you're self-aware, 'sall good.

Not that I'd catch myself ever listening to Aqua. It's the kind of thing I'd find on my harddrive and go "whaaaaa--" and realise Rachel sent it to me one night in 2003.

Aqua is awesome. my friend has barbie girl as her ring tone and we always dance when she gets a call hahaha.. yeah I'm a dork.
pixel
She's stocked full of all other music that's techno like Aqua. J-pop, the most. Including one commercial to learn English - "I Wanna Fuck You in the Ass." God, were my ears and mind de-virginized.
vip
pixel
O_o Rachel and I probably have very similar mp3 players... assuming, because I am an ass, that she has one.

does she have spice girls? that would make her even awesomeer!!!
pixel
Wait, I retract my previous statement.

Really...REALLY badly sung folk/power metal. I'm embarassed to even have it on my HD.

you mean like monster ballads?!
