I have a few songs that I really like and never get sick of. Some of them are a bit odd, so I thought why not share them? Just like with the guilty movies, I don't actually feel guilty about any of these. I'd feel guilty if I murdered someone, but movies and songs I like? Eh. No shame. I just didn't know what else to title the posts, so roll with it.
True To Your Heart by 98 Degrees & Stevie Wonder
I remember we bought the single for this song and had it on repeat for weeks (yes, just the one song) while we played Mario Kart. It's from the Mulan soundtrack and every time I hear it (which is a lot) I think of Mario Kart and vice versa. It's a fun song.
Side note: because we use celcius, I never clicked with the whole 98 degrees thing. One day I asked KC about the normal body temp and he said 98 degrees and I was like 'ohhhh'. I have no cultural excuse to why I didn't get N*Sync for several years though.
Another side note: you should watch the video. It's awful.
You Don't Own Me by Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn & Diane Keaton
I've talked about my love for The First Wives Club before, but seriously. I could listen to this version over and over and over and over.. and over. I actually just really, really, really, really love Bette Midler. I would totally see her live.
Why Should I Worry by Billy Joel
I guess you could just put every Disney song on here because apparently I'm a child. Who doesn't like Billy Joel? Who doesn't like a Billy Joel as a singing dog? I love Oliver & Company. My favourite lyrics are: Everything goes, Everything Fits. They love me at the Chelsea, they adore me at the Ritz!
All I Want for Christmas
All. year. round. I also really, really, really love the Baby Please Come Home one as well.
C’est La Vie by B*Witched
I also really love Hold On by the same group. They are both totally on my running playlist. When I listen to music when I run, that is.
Doctor Jones by Aqua
In year 5, we had to name our tables (there was like 5 of us on a table). There was a boy I really liked (as much as a 10 year old can like a boy) and his name was Brogan what kind of name is that and he really liked the band Aqua so all our names were Aquarium, Aquarius (me!) and I don't remember the others but they were all Aqua related. Completely unrelated to this story, I love Doctor Jones, Doctor Jones, calling Doctor Jones get up now, wake up now..
I Know Why the Dog Howls at the Moon by I have no idea I could look it up but eh
This is from George of the Jungle. Which I love. A lot. It's the dancing scene, I couldn't find a gif of it so here's this one instead. I didn't search very hard though.
Wake Me Up Before You Go Go
Oh did I used to annoy my mum with this song. You know at the start how they say Jitterbug? I would seriously replay it over and over and over until she'd had enough. And then some more.
I'm Henry the 8th by Herman's Hermits
You don't want to be in a car with me when this comes on because I can't not sing along. Loud.
My mum and I (and her friends) saw Herman's Hermits several years ago - okay technically the only original member was the drummer, but I care not.
Footloose by Kenny Loggins.
This is my jam okay? Seriously. My favourite dancing song. You don't even know.
Anything by Cher.
I feel the same way about Cher as I do Bette. We're all on first names here. Anywho. Neither of them can do wrong in my eyes. Nope, not even that outfit.
One Week by Barenaked Ladies.
I have listened to this like once a week for like the last 10 years and I still don't know all the words. I just looked up how old this song is. I was still in primary school. I feel old.
Most things by Hilary Duff
Yep. Whatever. She's cool. If you don't like her, you're So Yesterday. See what I did there? Why Not was a fave and still is.
Most things by Elvis, but especially the Viva Las Vegas songs.
My mum loves Elvis so I listened to his music a lot growing up. Have you ever seen Viva Las Vegas? I should have put that on my guilty pleasure movie list. It's pretty awesome / awful. I love the soundtrack though. A little too much. Because Ann Margaret.
First by Lindsay Lohan.
Ok this might be the only one on the list I am slightly ashamed of. Actually, nope that was just indigestion. It's gone now.
I could probably go on all day. But I won't. So I don't actually feel guilty over any of these songs, but now you know just how un-cool I am. Do you like any of the songs I do?
