On the subject of music

I haven't really been much for participating in these "tags" lately, but this one just seemed so appropriate given the last few posts. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am no music snob. I truly enjoy almost any type of music. Yes, even country. That's right, I said it. And while I can appreciate all of the technical, music person's music that my drummer husband forces upon me, what I really want to do is sing. Let me tell you I can belt it out in my car with the best of them. You know the scene, you pull up to a stop light only to see the girl next to you singing at the top of her lungs and waving her arms around like nobody's business. That's me. And let me assure you, I am not singing in any key you would recognize.

So here's the tag that was inflicted upon me by my dear virtual friend Tina:
Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
Share 5 songs you are embarrassed to admit to others that you like and tell why.
Tag 7 random people at the end of post and include links to their blogs.
Let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here goes. How will I ever limit this to just five? I can't. I'll just include one from each of the major genres of embarrassment. At least I'm diverse.

1. Baby One More Time by Brit Brit
2. The Real Slim Shady by Eminem
3. Every Rose Has Its Thorn by Poison
4. The Gambler by Kenny Rogers
5. What I Am by Edie Brickell and The New Bohemians

OK, I really can't explain why I like these songs. I just do. And I'm not embarrassed about it because you probably like them, too.

And just for fun, I am adding on a bonus section of five songs I LOVE to sing aloud. This list really could go on to about number 78, but I'll stick with the first five that come to mind. Oh, and I've been officially banned from singing any of these while my husband is in the car. He just can't appreciate my talent.

1. Patience by Guns 'n' Roses
2. American Pie by Don McLean
3. Oh What A Night by Frankie Vali and The Four Seasons
4. Livin' On a Prayer by Bon Jovi
5. Jack and Diane by John Cougar Mellencamp (back when he was still the cougar)

And because I really don't like to follow the rules, I'm just tagging anyone who wants to participate. It really was quite fun. Honestly.

OOO pick me! Pick me!

This will be a fun one. I could go on and on. I could also write a post about embarassing concerts I've attended. I'll start that list with Wierd Al Yankovic and end it with Britney Spears.
