guilty pleasure mix - Volume I

Everyone has their favorite songs that they're slightly embarrassed about. I have a ton of them. Since C loves good music. This child appreciates the classics with a bit of my "hipster" tunes thrown in there. He gets fussy when pop punk comes on. He doesn't understand guilty pleasure right now. He'll get there (I hope) hehe! Below are the songs I put on my first guilty pleasure mix. Enjoy (or don't!) :)

1. all the things she said - tatu
(Could've cared less for this one when it first came out. I had to borrow an ex's car and this song came on one of his mixes. That car trip was when I discovered how great of a sing-a-long this was.)

2. boys - britney spears
(I love Britney and it's not because she made me feel differently about my school uniform in high school. I may or may not have a dance to this song. Completely normal.. i know!)

3. good girls gone bad - cobra starship
(So freggin horrible but it's so damn catchy. Perfect to "perk" up a road trip.)

4. dirty little secret - all american rejects
(After the tour they were on in '03, It took me a long time to be able to listen to this song again.)

5. milkshake - kelis
(A bunch of my friends and I hit up several tour dates for a band we knew. It was nicknamed the "milkshake" tour. Why? This song just came out. It was so damn catchy and I was dubbed "Milkshake" after. A laughter ensues whenever this song comes on)

6. since you've been gone - kelly clarkson
(it's like that damn gotye song. you just have to sing-a-along!)

7. my friends over you - new found glory
(oh, nfg. You weren't my fave as a teen but you were a lot of fun)

8. like it's her birthday - good charlotte
(good charlotte didn't disappoint with this horrible guilty pleasure when it came out a few years ago.)

9. lala - ashlee simpson
(after forcing myself to read that stupid fifty shades of grey book (more on that later), this song now makes me think of that damn book. the best is being caught singing and dancing to this song singing into the broom... not really but the laughter that ensues is always priceless)

10. happy holidays, you bastard - blink 182
(the 12 year old boy in me still cracks up over this crude yet funny song)

11. drawing board - mest
(i'm fully aware the lead singer of this band would later stab someone but before then was this classic. it's giving me flashbacks to blue leopard print pants and colorful streaked hair)

12. shake it - metrostation
(booty shaking is a must when the chorus of "shake shake shake shake")

13. helena - my chemical romance
(i was "helena" aka the dead ballerina from this video in '06. it was a hit... well, only if you saw the video)

14. lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off - panic at the disco
(i'd serenade anyone and everyone this song in '05. i'm sure some sweet "tipsy" dance moves followed.)

15. misery business - paramore
(yeah, this is my rockband jam. one of my best friend's has the lead singer's moves down to this song or at least she did 5 years ago haha)

16. oh sheila - prince & sheila e
(i can't tell you how many of my late night dance parties started off with this song. okay well maybe it was girltalk that started off the dance parties but this was def. on the playlist!)

17. boring town - less than jake
(yeah... did i ever tell you about that brief ska phase when i was 15?)

18. playmate of the year - zebrahead
(remember that inner 12 year old boy I was talking about earlier? Yup, can't stop laughing)

19. mine - taylor swift
(i first heard this song right after i found out i was pregnant. i'll blame the hormones for bawling my eyes out when I heard it. Seriously! WHO CRIES AT THIS SONG?!?! That Christmas my cousin Emma made me sing-a-long 50 million times to this song. It slowly became a guilty pleasure sing-a-long song. Happy to report there are no longer tears shed when I hear this song.)

20. untouched - the veronicas
(i'm notorious for putting a bunch of crap onto CD with two really good songs because i just NEED those two newly downloaded songs to blare in my car. on a roadtrip to Vegas this song was one of the "crappy" ones but my friend Ozzie got addicted to it and it slowly became a crappy staple song on future mix CD's. shimmy in your seat while you sing-a-long to this song)
