Your Most Shameless Singalong Tracks

There have been numerous threads about what music people are listening to, and most replies claim tracks by the likes of Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys et al, but . . . what are the tracks you shamelessly sing along to when there is nobody around? Or worse, with enough alcohol on board, when there ARE people around?

I'm not talking about worthy or serious music here, but the stuff you wouldn't be caught dead buying.

I'll start the ball rolling: No 2 The Ketchup Song, by Las Ketchups, or whatever they call themselves, and No 1 Dragostea Din Tea, by the Romanian group O-Zone. Made all the more enjoyable by the link posted by someone here last week:

How about "Christmas Wrapping" by the Waitresses; "Valley Girl" by Moon Unit and Dweezil Zappa. Shameless 80s music...

My list is never ending....

Don't ask me why, 'cause I got sick of KFRC playing it at 8:02am every single damned morning for about 2 months, but ...

Don't Go Breakin' My Heart by Elton John and Kiki Dee.

Now there are others I sing along to, but nothing I wouldn't be caught dead buying that I can think of.

I have had the Lumberjack Song running through my head all weekend.

I also used to do a mean "Whip It" by Devo on Karoke nights.

Kaiser Chiefs - practically the entire 'Employment' album.

The Automatic - Monster is also a good singalong at the moment, particularly on a drive home from work!

Congratulations, you are forever banned from my RU list.  bigthumbsup 

I must admit I don't sing any embarresing songs when I'm alone. But the ones I do sing in my car (while waiting for a radio to be fitted some day) are various songs by A Perfect Circle, particularly "The Noose", "Pet", "The outsider" and "Passive". Also most of the songs by Lumsk...
