No judgment as that has crept into my last music thread. Now come on we all have songs we love that aren’t in are usual I’m so cool playlist.

Indo, if I post anymore songs I guarantee they'll be in my playlist (as my previous ones have).

I'll apologise in advance.

No need to apologise Zen, let it all out.

It just hit me, i think this is possibly the most embarrassing song i like, there is no retro 80s cool with this one.

Tassie early 90s best radio we could get was triple J but only in certain weather conditions from a very high headland and a weak single would get across Bass strait, so you had no choice to get exposed to some pretty bad radio, but this one stuck for some reason.

Hey there you go, we can agree on something! Ripper tunes but I only play them when no one else is around. :)

If you haven't belted this one out whilst under the influence at some stage in your life, can you honestly say you've truly lived?

Gotta love the crowd appreciation 1:41 also ;-)

Excellent Seeds! They might've been flared at the bottom but were surely tight at the top!

Good on ya for getting this going by the way. Literally days before you started this thread I was listening to some "embarrassing" tunes on the headphones, thinking to myself, I should post these tunes in jest, but knowing it would only corrupt the Tunes thread :-)

Everyone's got an embarrassing, guilty pleasure thats for sure.

Coincidentally, I was listening to that in the car today Rabs (Hole not Miley Cyrus) It's a great track. Not embarrassing at all.

I reckon if you're gonna post an embarrassing song, you have to have it in your playlist.

Edit: When this one rolls around and I'm alone in the car I'll sing this loud and proud.

I agree Zen. Great song. Its the Miley part that's embarrassing. I secretly love Miley and yes, she's in my playlist :-)

I was driving back from a surf check and these three popped up. Apart from the coolest of coolest tracks that I won't post here because they're just way too cool, there is the odd mildly embarrassing song that makes me even cooler because I'm not embarrassed to have them.

No shame no gain Blackers. Driving home from lunch and these bad boys dropped.

Driving with me is like being buried in an easy listening radio station.

No shit, I actually have these songs in my playlist. Bucket loads of classical too. I guess roadtrips could be a little... trying.

Each to their own mate, if you are driving you get to choose the music. Good to see some diversity too. As for "being on the playlist" I'm a bit old school in that I tend to play music I have purchased; vinyl, CD or iTunes, so mostly what I post I "own". Shuffle is as advanced as I get.
BTW thanks for the correction, I realised after it went up but kind of liked the direction it went so left it.

I wasn't correcting you Blackers, I was just carrying on from your words.

I'm like you, no music subscriptions, the bulk of my music I own or have 'acquired' over the years.

A lot of the above embarrassing songs are actually pretty damn good.

Was in the surf today and thinking of this thread. Ear worm Tenterfield Saddler in my head most of the sesh.
Thought of other obscure? Aussie artists I like. Once again the vocals get me even in genres I don’t like

No (extended) road trips with you, Zen. Though way better than id, I wager.

That's Guantanamo Bay level torture.

No. Real life is more appealing and even then I couldn’t care less about trying to get myself noted. There’s an old western movie I love. The Big Country. I showed my boys as it’s better than Aesop’s fables. Basically seek achievements in life for self worth and self satisfaction. Achieving for the sake of stroking one’s ego is tiring and ends in emptiness
