Album You Are Embarassed To Own

Thu Aug 19, 2004 8:27 am

Here's something to talk about other than politics and terrorism..

Are there one or more albums in your music albums where you look back and think "What the hell was I thinking when I bought that?!"

I'll start with myself:

The Macarena Mix  Laugh out loud

Yeah, Metallica 'Load'. Another monument to my doofus-ness of buying an album "on faith" of an artist without hearing it first. Could not get into it no how, no way. Would not "grow on" me so it just languished. Because it was a cassette, it DID serve well as an ad-hoc windshield ice scraper.

Went and did the same damn thing and bought 'Reload' based on a recommendation from someone saying it was a good album; Tuned out this cat actually liked 'Load' and in fact never heard any earlier stuff.

Wasn't on the internet yet...it really helps now.

I have bought some movie soundtracks, and I shake my head whenever I look at them....check out these gems...

Beverly Hills Cop
Top Gun
Dirty Dancing
An Officer and A Gentleman
Pretty Woman
Footloose (that one is not really that bad)
La Bamba
Cocktail (again, not bad)

I actually donated these CD's to a friend who was having a garage sale recently...told her to sell them for 3 bucks apiece...guess what...nobody wanted them....I still own them. Must have been drunk when I bought them.

When I moved cross country I got rid of my more shameful CDs... right now I don't think I have any CDs that I am embarrassed to own.

However I did once own Paula Abdul "Spellbound" and the "Beavis and Butthead Experience". I like to think my taste has gotten better since I was 12.

Hummmm, people buy CDs still? I have this great thing called Kazaa and WinMX. But the worst CD I have ever spent money one was, Jewl, I had a bit of a crush on her back when I was a teenager. Now I look at her and I think she is kinda nasty.

There is nothing wrong the "Top-gun" album, its quite good.

But how about, Kylie and Jason - Especialy for you! AAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!

and its really cheesy video that goes with it.

Cheers,

Steve. p.s I may play it later with a few beers in my slide room with the volume turned right down in case next door hears it.

Top Gun

I wouldn't mind that album. The theme song on the opening credits is awesome, and so is "Take My Breath Away" (stupid Jessica Simpson butchered it  Angry)

What is it with the Spice Girls? I'm glad to not be a part of that crowd! Big grin

Me 4!
Spice Girls-Spice World

That is a great embarassing album!  Smokin cool



Hey I like a lot of the above mentioned albums.
Xanadu Sountrack
Wham - Make It Big
Culture Club - (all albums)
RATT - Invasion of Your Privacy

All the above are great!  Big thumbs up
Wham and the Culture Club's appearance may be a bit over the top but beneath the makeup and lipstick are some of the most talented pop musciains of the 1980s.

It took some time to figure out how to play 'Careless Whispers' on classic guitar and 'Club Tropicana' on bass guitar.




DLKAPA:
Michael Jackson's Thriller is an awesome album. Still the best selling single LP to date. The Eagles Greatest Hits 1971-1975 doesn't count because that was a compilation materail from 4 different albums.

Fat?
Baby Spice only weights like 140 pounds. Her ass isn't that big. It's kind of small for me actually.
I'd still be honored to please her though.  Big grin

Lenny Kravitz's "5".

Just terrible, with the exception of "Fly Away", the song for which I bought it. Most of the songs on that CD should never have seen the light of day.

Trick Daddy's "Thugs R Us" is also awful.

However I think it's kinda cool!
