I can only think of one at the moment:

Anybody else wish to divulge their secret songs?

Pretty much everything on my iPod

And considering there's over 1,700 songs on there I can't be bothered to list them. (My last.fm will probably have them all there in all their glory... )

I still listen to the Spice Girls from time to time.

Now that I'm an adult, I can see how some of their music may be problematic (not to mention embarrassingly pop-y), but when I was a tween/early teen, their 'girl power' message helped spark my feminism (though I didn't know that that was what it was, at the time). So listening to them when I'm feeling blue is like a dose of nostalgia with a dash of empowerment.

I don't ever listen to them, but I totally know what you mean. I think the Spice Girls are ridiculously problematic, but in the end, they were a good influence on me.

Just about anything by the Village People, which I also find ideal for karaoke. Particularly YMCA and Macho Man.

You know what, I take that back. I'm proud to be a Village People fan, and my only embarrassment lies in the fact that most of my fellow human peers lack the class to enjoy such wonderful music.

YMCA! It's been a few years but I used to be the one in the front of the line at parties showing everyone the "moves" to the song...lol.

Haha, I remember being really insulted when one of my friends at uni asked me if I was a fan of the Spice Girls because she knew I was a feminist.

I am always a bit embarrassed when people look at my mp3 player because I like to listen to Maroon 5 and Madonna when I go to the gym.
But they have good jogging songs!
Oh god, why was that was so hard for me to admit.

I can't considering I still listen to that entire album.

Same with me

I'm embarrassed that I like that "Tik Tok" song by Ke$ha. It's just terrible. But I love it.

When I'm at work, I listen to a satellite radio station that plays stuff from the 90's. Sometimes they play Spice Girls, which I'm all right with listening to. I had their cd when I was younger, and I used to really like some of their songs. Now I'm just like "meh". Listening to it doesn't really evoke any feelings in me. I have noticed that when N Sync songs play, I sometimes find myself quietly singing along though. I am not the type to sing along with the radio, (especially in public) so that is sort of embarrassing.

I could probably make a long list. For one, I'm not a bon jovi fan the least bit, but I do like that "she's a little runaway" song, but not at all for lyrical content.
Recently I heard " Dr. Love" by KISS for the first time in ages. I can't stand gene simmons as a person, but I have to admit the song is not bad. The guitar solo is tasty.
Oh yeah, another odd-ball from way back. A song called "Daze gone by" by a band called Antix. Lyric content sucks extremely though.

This album.


Because they were known for being "racist". Although the girls aren't like that anymore. In an interview last summer they came out saying they aren't racist and don't agree with things like that anymore.

I like plenty of cheesy stuff. It's fun. I'm not at all embarrassed by it cos I'm not very self-conscious about music. If I like it, I like it. I'm also into a lot of underground stuff that a lot of other people my age haven't got much of a clue about so it balances itself out. :P

Not actually embarrassing music, but I keep it on the down lo from friends because most early 20s are sooo not into this.
