      The worst songs that you know you love

      There are some songs that we ought not to like, but in our hearts we know we love them anyway...just maybe not publicly . In this thread we can shamelessly (more or less) announce our undying love for all those cheesy, stupid, wonderful songs. Bonus points if they also come with a terrible video!

      Here are some of mine. Don't laugh!

      The Bee Gees - How Deep Is Your Love
      (You can always count on the Bee Gees for the best worst falsetto ever)
      Spoiler for song:


      John Mayer - No Such Thing
      (I love John Mayer... big whoop, wanna fight about it? )
      Spoiler for song:


      Nickelback - Never Again
      (As much as I hate this band, there have been times where this song did not leave my head for days at a time.)
      Spoiler for song:


      Men At Work - Overkill
      (Heard this the first time on Scrubs... disposable new wave pop music never sounded so good. As a bonus, the video is stupid as hell.)
      Spoiler for song:


      Ingrid Michaelson - The Way I Am
      (I can only imagine what my friends would say if they ever found out that I love Ingrid Michaelson...and Feist.)
      Spoiler for song:


      10cc - I'm Not In Love
      (This one might actually be a legitimately good song... )
      Spoiler for song:

      Heh yeah, you seem to be from my era! Here are some more you know made your heart secretly swell but you pretended you hated them like everybody else did (turns out they were all pretending too):

      Spoiler for Dancing Queen by Abba:




      Spoiler for The Carpenters - Close to You:


      Spoiler for And yes... Barry Manilow. Come on... you know you want to click it:


      Oh, and 10cc I'm Not in Love definitely qualifies as a legitimately good song in my book. I'm surprised to find out how many people actually think ELO were some kind of joke though... I always thought they were great!

      Ok, I thought of an even guiltier pleasure:

      Spoiler for Windy by The Association - damn, never heard a live version. They're kinda rockin out here:


      Ok dammit, now you got me trippin to the oldies!

      Spoiler for The Archies Sugar Sugar:


      Ah... last one, promise!! This guy could go head to head with any BeeGee when it comes to falsetto...

      Spoiler for The Tokens - The Lion Sleeps Tonight:

      Those would be fighting words if I ever heard them!

      It does my heart good to find young people who appreciate music from an earlier age... that's kind of rare these days!

      That's something I've never really understood. I don't make fun or laugh at people for what they like... I'm open about music I like, and I could really care less when people say, "that song is so old." "that song is cheesey" "yeah I stopped listening to that when I was 12." When I like something I usually will always like it, whether it's popular, old, was popular once.. etc..


      Spoiler for Backstreet Boys:



      Spoiler for The Troggs:



      Spoiler for Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons:



      Spoiler for songs i grew up listening to a lot:


      Okay I got carried away.

      what do you want to do with your life????

      I WANNA ROOOCK! (rock!)

      Spoiler for twisted sister:



      whoever remixed this song totally ruined it, but the video and the asian chick's cleavage kind of make up for it.

      Spoiler for pump up the jam:



      Spoiler for more men at work?? gah.:



      uh, i really liked the fixx as a kid.

      I like that song "I'm awesome"- even though it's kinda dumb . I think it's hilarious.
      If you see a strange typo in my post, blame my iPad for that.

      Does it simply overwhelm.

      Dutch, actually. A lot of people confuse it with German, for some reason...even though they sound almost nothing alike.
