  1. “El Paso” by Marty Robbins and pretty much anything (of the songs I like) by the Bloodhound Gang.

  2. I was gonna say Journey “Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin’ “, but I can’t do it with a straight face.

  3. Various Stevie Nicks songs,but my darkest shame is probably Sweet Child O Mine by Guns and Roses.

  4. I clicked on the link to see what you were confessing to, stopped it just as soon as I realized what was. 20 minutes later, Mr. L is saying “thanks for the fucking ear worm”. He hates that song.
    Total Eclipse of the Heart. Sing along at top volume in the car if it comes on the radio. But only if I’m alone.

  5. “Sooner or Later” by the Grass Roots. It’s catchy but ultimately about stalking.

  6. A few months ago I would’ve said “Bad Romance,” but I actually think it’s one of the best pop songs in recent years.
    How about “Any Way You Want It” by Journey – or “MMMBop” by Hanson? Those are a bit more shameful.

  7. mm. embarrassed? blue velvet by that polish guy? i have a CD of his. hmm. bobby vinton! i think that is the closest i have.

  8. Anything with bad 80s mall hair. The Hooters “And we danced” Andy Kim “Rock me gently” Autograph “Turn up the radio”
    God my musical tastes suck.

  9. Late-sixties Englebert Humperdinck. “Le Bicyclettes De Belsize”. “The Last Waltz”. Just shiny, dumb, pop.

  10. “Cocktails for Two” by Spike Jones. Just can’t help myself. My wife is convinced I have severe mental issues.

  11. I am a tad ashamed of liking the Monkees, but not so ashamed that I don’t find myself humming “I’m A Believer” every so often.
    I think someone asked this question of Matt Stone of South Park fame and he said Bel Biv DeVoe’s “Poison” – and now THAT one gets stuck in my head occasionally. “She’s driving me out of my miiiind…”

  12. Country Boy. John Denver.
    At leastit wasn’t named “worst Rock ‘n Roll Song Ever.”

  13. Actually I’m not ashamed of any songs I like!
    So there.
    I have the album Breakfast in America by Supertramp.
    Best of Bread
    I even like some Celine Dion.
    Okay, I realize when I just typed Celine Dion I might be a bit ashamed. But it’s not like I want to marry her!

  14. “Standin’ on the Rock” by The Ozark Mountain Daredevils. I hear it once and can’t stop humming, singing and if I’m alone, dancing a bit.

  15. Honey by Bobby Goldsboro, “then one day the angels came…”
    Watching Scotty Grow.

    “me and God watching Scotty grow.”
    Ha Ha, Made you cry!

  16. “Man, I Feel Like a Woman” by Shania Twain (but please don’t tell anyone!)

  17. “Man, I Feel Like a Woman” by Shania Twain (but please don’t tell anyone!)
    When I hum that in the hallways it’s very embarrassing. Of course not as embarrassing as humming the Midol theme song.

  18. I must confess to a sneaking fondness for Journey. I love the big guitars, big production vales and big hair. A couple of their songs are defensible but Wheel In The Sky is not. There, I said it.

  19. Never Ending Song of Love by Delaney and Bonnie, Sugar, Sugar by the Archies and Daydream Believer by the Monkeys.
    hey, it was 1969 and my grandpa only gave me a quarter. Three songs.

  20. I’m actually an unashamed fan of MMMBop or anything by The Monkees. Good pop music is underrated.

  21. I like the Monkees records a lot. Daydream Believer is a great song. Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze does a wonderful version of it.

  22. Monkees, yes.
    But – as a qualifier, my idea of good Monkees tunes are “Goin’ Down”, and “Randy Scouse Git”.

  23. Vandenburg “Burning Heart.” The Dutch Invasion of the late 70s / early 80s stalled out, but these guys… oh, these guys.
    Just in case you don’t think you’re heard it…

  24. Shannon (aka song about Beach Boys dead Irish Setter drifting out to sea) by Sha Na Na’s Henry Gross.
    Theme from “Billy Jack”

  25. Neil Sedaka songs from the early ’60s (Breakin’ Up is Hard to Do, Calendar Girl) … to my shame, I still know all the words (and sometimes sing ’em in the shower).
    Same goes for Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party and I’ll Cry if I Want to”
    Damn, now I feel so old!
