Guilty Pleasures

My family teases me that my iPhone is filled with ringtones because I only download songs that are popular -- never, ever a full CD.

It's true.

I might have horrible taste in music.

But what makes a song respectable?  I mean, if loving Xanadu is wrong, I don't want to be right. 

I leave no genre unexplored, a good song is a good song.  I walk to work each day -- my office is about 5 songs away -- and I mostly look for something fast-paced so I can step to the beat. 

You might find me on 42nd Street rocking out to one of these beauties:
  1. Love Shack - B-52s
  2. Hazy Shade of Winter - The Bangles
  3. Copacabana - Barry Manilow
  4. Stayin' Alive - Bee Gees
  5. Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy) - Big & Rich
  6. You Give Love a Bad Name - Bon Jovi
  7. More Than a Feeling - Boston
  8. Motown Philly - Boyz II Men
  9. Toxic - Britney Spears
  10. Before He Cheats - Carrie Underwood
  11. The Devil Went Down to Georgia - The Charlie Daniels Band
  12. Genie in a Bottle - Christina Aguilera
  13. (I Just) Died in Your Arms Tonight - Cutting Crew
  14. Personal Jesus - Depeche Mode
  15. Come on Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners
  16. Last Dance - Donna Summer
  17. Rio - Duran Duran
  18. Save Tonight - Eagle Eye Cherry
  19. The Chain - Fleetwood Mac
  20. Jenny From the Block - Jennifer Lopez
  21. S.O.S. - Jonas Brothers
  22. Since U Been Gone - Kelly Clarkson
  23. See You Again - Miley Cyrus
  24. Bye Bye Bye - *NSYNC
  25. Xanadu - Olivia Newton John
  26. Jesse's Girl - Rick Springfield
  27. Rock You Like a Hurricane - Scorpions
  28. Youth Gone Wild - Skid Row
  29. I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift
  30. 867-5309 (Jenny) - Tommy Tutone
  31. It's Raining Men - The Weather Girls
  32. Careless Whisper - Wham
  33. Bust a Move - Young MC

Ok, so it might be a shorter list if I named all the songs I like that AREN'T embarrassing.  Still, should I be ashamed to love these tunes? 

Nope.  That's why Bose invented headphones.

I can't be the only one!  Share YOUR questionable musical tastes below...
