    What songs on your ipod..
    are embarrasing and you can't believe you actually have them and listen to them?

    For me it is Wannabe by the Spice Girls and a whole collection of William Shatner songs. I find the Shat's singing very entertaining. My favorites are Common People and his version of Rocket Man.

    The two that I thought would embarrass my kids but turned out to be a hit is:

    Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas (I was just listening to that last night too!)

    AND

    Put the lime in the coconut by Harry Nillson

    Isn't it though? I can send it to you if you like ;-) along with a few other hundred that are probably even more embarrassing...like Lionel Richie's Dancing on the Ceiling...oh my...

    Hmmmmm, embarassing ... I don't think I have anything embarassing on there. I try to keep it pretty fresh since I listen to it every night on my walks with the pups ... I could be wrong though ...

    BTW .. dancing on the ceiling was one of my favorites growing up .. lol ... can live without the Spice Girls though

    I have that one too. My hubby hates it, so I play it on my laptop REALLY LOUD.

    I also have that song from the Geico commercial where the caveman is at the airport, "Remind Me" by Royksopp.

    I'll have to go through my ipod tonight... I'm sure there are some embarrassing gems on there, but there are literally thousands of songs to go through.

    Kung Fu Fighting is like my theme song My friend bought me the Kung Fu Fighting Hamster for my b-day!

    Lionel Richie can sing to me anytime! I have him too (yummy) Along with some Marvin Gaye and Barry White

    I have everything from the B-52's Cosmic Thing

    I also have some Marylin Manson, Judas Priest, Korn, Drowning Pool and Alanis Morrissette so I can keep in touch with that anrgry little woman inside

    But the most embarassing is the alarming amount of Culture Club songs

    I may have to hurt you, as now I'll have "I'll Tumble 4 U" stuck in my head all day. Thanks a lot.

    Grab the Skaggs/Hornsby version off of ITunes. It's delightful.

    'Twas only paybacks for the "Remind Me" song, although I'm relieved to know I wasn't the only one to find that jingle catchy....At least you don't have a remix of Love Shack/What I want B-52's battling The Spice Girls running rampant through your head.....lol

    A couple weeks ago I loaded "The Billboard Top 100 - 1950-2005". Great music. I got stuck in the 70's, just like my wardrobe.

    I just got "Rolling Stones 500 Best Ever" and need to load those.

    I do now... only with a little "I Think I Love You" added in for good measure. I gotta stop reading this thread.

    Oh, I've got that, too! Cool that you found a site with the animation! The original one went 404, and I never thought I'd see it again. I like the song, but the video makes it even better.

    Did you catch some of his other tunes? "RV" is a great one.

    Edited to add:
    And no, I'm not embarrassed at all to have those tunes!
