One time when I was bored out of my mind, I…created a list of my top 486 songs of all time. I got this idea from my friend Dan. He had created a list of his top 500 songs of all time. So on a road trip, Steve and I listened to as much music as we could. We listened through part of each song, then decided if the song moved us enough to be added to our lists.
I had spent a lot of time massaging the list, moving songs up and down the rankings, when we were newly married, but hadn’t looked a the list in probably eight years…until today.
I’m going to share the top 10 songs on my list via video. I’ll spare you the remaining 476.
These songs move me in some way – either to tears or to get up on the flo’ and dance.
Don’t even make fun, because I admit some of these songs are just plain broke. But they’re in my top 10 and I’m going to honor the weirdo I was eight years ago by leaving them as they are, crushing my desire to massage the crap out of this list.
Here we go.
Never mind, I took a video anyway. It’s amazing how I’m willing to look like an idiot and a pile of crapola for my blog. I’m not even wearing my tinted lip balm. I never leave the house looking like this.
3. Heart of Glass – Blondie
Now we’re talkin’.
I might cry just watching this video. The memories, man.
6. You Needed Me – Anne Murray
Shut. Up. I like me some Anne.
7. If – Bread
Ya know, they sound surprisingly similar to Anne Murray.
If you watch any videos on this post make sure you watch the first 20 seconds of this one.
Can you say spicy? The lips on the floor. What more can you ask for in a video? Other than this Chuck Norris look-alike pasted on Karen Carpenter’s body with retro chest-high skinny jeans and knee-high boots serenading you with I wanna taste your lips, I wanna be your fantasy? Perfection. Is it not?
Seriously. Are you not barfing?
I can’t stop laughing at this list. I’m totally embarrassed after watching that video – like I want to puke in my mouth because it’s so gross. I actually covered my face with my hands I was so embarrassed. I am beet red. Now, I hate this song. I should have never, ever watched this video. I can’t stop laughing.
But, crap, I love this music.
What is wrong with me?!
Oh yeah. Now this is a good song.I can’t believe I love this crap. I think this is the most embarrassing post I’ve ever written.
Two Bread songs in my Top 10 songs of all time. I think that says it all.
And just so you know It Takes Two by Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock was number 11.
And to think I thought my husband’s make-out tape was embarrassing.
Okay, what’s the most embarrassing song that you love? I just gave you 10. And they’re all my favorites.
