Albums you are ashamed to own...

   Discussion: Albums you are ashamed to own...
John J. Ryan · 18 years, 10 months ago

Okay, time to reveal the skeletons in your closet!  What CDs/cassettes/records are you ashamed of owning, and still do?  This means for some reason, you haven't thrown it out yet.

My worst?  I know it's somewhere, but I still have "Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em" from M.C. Hammer.  U Can't Touch This!

ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

Well since I'm a certified pack rat who refuses to throw anything out, I still have a fair number of albums that I'm ashamed to own.

While I also have MC Hammer's "Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em", my worst probably are Michael Bolton's "Time Love and Tenderness"  and 2 Mariah Carey albums (Mariah Carey and Emotions)  Oo-oh a-haa shireeeeeeeeek. *covers ears*

J. Andrew World Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Please Hammer Don't Hurt em is perhaps the most brilliant CD of the 90's!  I am proud to own that one!
I can see the bunny Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Hey, my whole music collection is online so I'm not terribly ashamed of anything I own. I think that if you find value in it of any kind, then what is there to be ashamed of?

That being said, it should be noted that I not only possess both of Tiffany's first albums, Debbie Gibson and *2* albums by Shaun Cassidy. :)
Andrea Krause Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I don't really know, since most of my shame days were cassettes and I threw most of my cassettes out years ago, even if I liked them still. :) (Those shames included Samantha Fox, Rick Astley, Snap..)

I'm not ashamed of much in my CD collection...there's lots I don't listen to anymore but nothing really SHAMEFUL. :) I did kick Led Zeppelin out of the rack for a while because I was so sick of the stoner zep fans I knew. :) The Fireman...which is a really horrid dance/trance/techno whatever CD that I bought just because Paul McCartney was somehow involved and can't give it up for the same reason but I HATE it.

There's REO Speedwagon, Hall & Oates, Chicago, Supertramp, Toto greatest hits CDs...but...those I bought on purpose in the past few years to HAVE some of those songs that used to shame me. :)

OOoh Sublime...hate the CD, but someone gave it to me for free and I can't get myself to get rid of it.
dave "buh" Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Hey now don't dis Samantha Fox. Her song "I'm All You Need" is one of my favorites. (Even have the album on cassette somewhere)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I hope you let Zepplin back in the rack. They are on my all-time fav list.
Andrea Krause Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Well I let them back on the rack but I don't really listen to the CDs. :) I have gotten to the point where I'll sing with them on the radio instead of changing it. :)
zil Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
mmmmmzepsets
Lisa Kay Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

That sublime disc reminds me of the high school days of getting stoned and sitting around listening to music. life was simple then. I'd love a copy of that CD!! hehehehehe

Andrea Krause Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Come and get it! :)
Annika Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Moldy Peaches. That's one of those cd's that I can't get rid of. Not because I like it, but because it makes me have 10 'M' bands. That's really important to me.
Annika Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Ooh! I was just going through my other cd book, and I found a couple that I'm a bit embarrased about. I had a gangsta period during jr. high. I have Warren G - Regulate.... G Funk Era, Snoop doggy dogg - Doggy style, Kriss Kross - Da Bomb. There are a few others, but just think of the 'cool' early 90's rappers, and I probably have one of their albums, or a single at least
Josh Woodward Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Doggystyle was a great CD! Not nearly as good as Dr. Dre's "The Chronic", but what is? :)

.oO rollin' down the street, smokin' indo, sippin on gin and juice.. Oo.
Kat Kunz Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

yeah, i never owned the sublime cd, but a neverending parade of those cds were in my player summer '97, and i probably coulda ganked one of my friends' copies, had i not been morally upstanding enough to return the errant discs.  fun stuff, though.

my shameful cds?  hm.  that shaggy disc with "it wasn't me" definitely.  no matter how much critical acclaim he's gotten lately, i still feel like a traitor to my 17-year-old, slim-shady-hatin' self by owning _the eminem show_.  and, um, abba's greatest hits?  *runs and hides*

zil Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

I have mixed emotions. I'm confused about my feelings on the matter... the thing is, not only do I own it, but... I still listen to it. ... and the other albums by the same artist.... that I purchased in shame, but turn up loud whenever possible. you see, I secretly want to be lil kim... can a painfully and starkly white girl with red hair and freckles be lil kims long lost twin? ...well no. I'm not that dellusional, but I can still turn her up loud and dance my bootay dance yo!

"this is fo my peeps, in the cars, the humvee's, the benzs', escalades wit 25 inch rims"

yes... its sad... but...

David A. Scott Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

Two words: Wesley Willis.

"Rock over London. Rock on Chicago."

Laura P. Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Wesley Willis kicks but "Rock Sadaam's A** to Russia!"
angelmusicmaven Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
my favorite Wesley Willis tune is probably "Shoot Me in the @$$"  Hhahaha!  He's something else, actually I want to try to catch him live someday!  That's got to be an odd experience!
Lisa Kay Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
no no. o/ I kicked bat man's A$$ o/

muahahahahah. I got to see him in concert, boy was that an experience!
angelmusicmaven Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I've come across people who got head-butted by him.  PLUS I think I saw him outside a venue Fruvous was playing at (he used to hang out a lot outside the double door in Chicago)... man, wonder if he went to the she and they didn't make the cut for him... man that'd be sad! :0
Laura P. Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
"Birdman kicked my a**" ("I jumped in my bronco and took off like OJ simpson")or "They Threw me out of church." Great Stuff.
Bruce Douville Back · 18 years, 9 months ago
I don't think that I'm ashamed of any of my CDs, but I do have some CDs that I probably SHOULD be ashamed of owning AND liking! I still like my Amy Grant "Heart In Motion" album, though I don't listen to it very often. And I do quite like George Michael's "Listen Without Prejudice" -- and sometimes, when nobody is watching, I even dance to it.
Agent Scully Back · 18 years, 9 months ago

Smurfing Sing Song

That's on LP mind you. :)

 

Melinda J. Beasi · 18 years, 10 months ago
Air Supply's Greatest Hits. I think that speaks for itself.
Andrea Krause Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
See, and I'd probably like to buy that, like the other greatest hits I own, for the nostalgia factor. :)

Paul and I were watching this I Love the 80s show on VH1 yesterday (they had an hour of 1980 and an hour of 1981) and we could not pull ourselves away. It was great. Not just the music but the toys, the news, just a total nostalgia fest! (It was funny how he remembered everything vividly because he's old and I was hit or miss because I was 4-5. :) )
Mamalissa! Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

I think I've seen all the episodes now - one for each year of the 80's.  It's totally addictive.  Like, totally!

And I've got all that stuff - from Rick Astley to Whitney - not to mention Nelson.  That was the soundtrack of my Junior High just discovering there's music on the radio phase.  It's nostalgia.

I have no excuse, however, for the Ace of Base CD.  I was old enough to know better. 

(What does it mean that I went to see Ricky Martin on night, and then The String Cheese Incident the next night, and enjoyed Ricky much much more?)

Rachel Beck Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Oh, and I have _two_ Ace of Base CDs. And I got them within the last year.

I'm perversely proud of this, though. I know it's cheesy and has no redemptive value, but I feel guilty cleaning my room or doing sit-ups to good music. Good music I like to listen to with my complete attention.
ChuckMan Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I have The Carpenters Greatest hits ... does that count? LOL!
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
You should be ashamed for having to ask :-)
Agent Scully Back · 18 years, 9 months ago
is it wrong to say I like the Carpenters? :o
Agent Scully Back · 18 years, 9 months ago

I know. It's been on the True Stories Channel.  Disturbing and sad. :(

I remember when she died. I was between 11 and 12. :(

Her voice is/was beautiful though. :)

Agent Scully Back · 18 years, 9 months ago

Ooooh I want that!!!! =D

I *heart* Air Supply! :)

Zach · 18 years, 10 months ago
I have a vast collection of albums that I am ashamed to own. Not only do I own countless country music albums, I also have such mindless pop drivel as Hanson. The list is extensive and I haven't the time to write it at the moment.
nate... Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Hey, at least Hanson play their own instruments and sing without "treatment".

I've got to give them props for that.

Besides, they're CUTE little girls! :D
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 18 years, 10 months ago
I have two.

Donna Summer's Love to Love You on Vinyl. I did win it but I never gave it away. Why am I ashamed? For those of you who never heard the title track it is known as the orgasm song.

The only one isn't an album but a CD single of Britney Spear's Hit Me Baby One More Time. I bought that for 99 cents before it hit the charts. I think it was before the album was released even. I bought it because she was the understudy in a play I saw when she was 11, and I remembered the name. It was my friend bad Carey's favorite play.

Is anybody still talking to me or am I permanently ostricized?
Zach Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
You had a noble cause. Just don't touch me, please. :-)
John J. Ryan Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

Don't you feel proud that you knew to buy that Britney Spears single before she was big?

I was working at a music store at the time that single came out.  The singles wall was LOADED with the 99 cent "One More Time.." singles.  We also showed the video of it constantly as part of the video rotation.  I do remember how people were transfixed by the video constantly, and then more and more singles were sold every day....

And the Britney marketing machine wasn't even in full swing at the time.  I thought she would go the way of Cleopatra, All Saints, Wild Orchid, etc....

Mark · 18 years, 10 months ago

Nelson - After the Rain

I hate the fact I own it... but it'sa grat pop/rock album...

 

-Mark

Lisa Kay · 18 years, 10 months ago

I still own Chicago's greatest hits (and even still occasionally listen to it for purely nostalgia reasons) It reminds me of being 12 and watching Saved by the Bell alone in the afternoons. boy was my life pathetic!

I was also given some bad Rod Stewart singing jazz standards disc that is presently on my CD rack (I was very ashamed when my boyfriend pulled it off, wondering why I would own such crap!)

And the best of all, Green Day's Dookie!!! Bought it at 14 and can't seem to lose it! ( I lost blood sugar sex magic which I still wish I owned but Dookie cannot die)

*sigh* yes, I'm pathetic

John J. Ryan Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

I lost my copy of BloodSugarSexMagic as well.  It was one of the first CDs I ever owned, along with R.E.M. Automatic For The People (Which I still have) and Naughty By Nature (You down with O.P.P.?)  My parents bought me both of those CDs for Christmas along with a CD Player.  And by that time, my rap phase was over (Thank GOD!).

Dookie I borrowed from my college roommate, but returned it to him after realizing, after a dozen listens, that every song was exactly the same.

nate... Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
BSSM and Automatic are GREAT albums!!

Dookie is okay... but yeah, much of it sounds the same.
Kris or Norm Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

I also have a copy of Please Hammer Don't Hammer and Chicago XVIIl. Rick Astley was cool, kind off

emilie is CRANKY · 18 years, 10 months ago

up until a week ago i owned tom jones' 'reload', but it was so shameful i gave it to music centre to raffle off for tour funds. i doubt they got anything for it. it was a pretty terrible album. :D

also i was going to mention the spice girls single i think i still have somewhere but they're becoming more kitsch now so i might just keep that one. hehehe. :)

· 18 years, 10 months ago

Rod and I are also bad for bying CD's and tapes that "musicians we like" are remotely involved in.  This has resulted in..

Weird Al reads: Peter and the Wolf

Liona Boyd reads: Paddle to the Sea

MANY a BAD jazz album with a favorite guitar or bass player .....most of the Primus albums...

I have SEVERAL christian albums from my past that I'm ashamed of, yet there's something about them that I still love! like:

Stryper, To Hell with the Devil

DC Talk: Jesus Freak

Randy Stonehill (all of them) he's a geek, but he makes me laugh!

One Bad Pig (just that name is worth keeping the tape around for!)

I'm SURE there is more, but Rod is in there right now sleeping with them all, so I'm working off the top of my head here! heh!

~J~

John J. Ryan Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

I * heart * To Hell With The Devil!!!!  Rock on Christian Heavy Metal and male sopranos! :)

P.S.  Reason for the post, who is on this album that you like?

Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

well, in the 80's I liked them all!

REALLY have always loved the vocals..I followed some of their solo projects inthe early 90's, but Rod also liked the guitar work..so we keep it around! yay!

Gordondon son of Ethelred · 18 years, 10 months ago

Before you call the men in the white coats this came in a box of cinnanmon toast crunch, a yummy cereal slightly less sugary than the CD.
John J. Ryan Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Let's hear it for Radio Disney.
Talcott Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Who left the milk out?
Annika Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I dated a guy who listened to Radio Disney. That was really odd. He wasn't the kind of guy you'd expect to listen to radio disney either. It was kind of fun.
goovie is married! Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
*blinkblink* they're giving those away with cinnamon toast crunch? want.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
In the "specially marked packages."

You actually see the CD in the front of the box.

I figured you had one already and just wasn't ashamed :-)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I've got a second copy of it, who wants it?
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Sold to the woman on the left coast.
emilie is CRANKY Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

i got a bad cd in a box of cinnamon toast crunch!! wait a second...

*rummages*

it's called 'the best album of the next century ever', and i think i got it in about 1998.

terrorvision - josephine
delirious - see the star
vast - somewhere else to be
space raiders - (i need the) disko doktor
wilt - working for the man
sound 5 - heavy transit
the paradise motel - hollywood landmines
a - foghorn

i've heard of terrorvision and a, but none of the others.

and i think 'i need the disko doktor' says it all, really. :D

Doktor Pepski, kommie · 18 years, 10 months ago
I am the proud owner of The man the myth, the priceline.com singing legend, That's right kids! I own Canada's own William Shatner's CD The Transfomed Man! What pray tell is a Transformed Man? Well apparently, Mr. Shatner believed that it is a man who finds a connection with monologues of Shakespeare (with background hippy-esque music(hey what do you want, It was recoded by "Star Trek's Captain Kirk" In 1968))and the popular Music of the time! Yes, Mr. tamborine Man is there! Lucy and The Sky with Diamonds! And before he does the monolgues, he describes the scene it comes from and what his belief what the scene means!  Is it an embarassment, the ravaings of a mad man, or just a cd of pure musical genius? You Tell me!
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
You win hands down. Shatner's Mr Tamborine Man can't be beat.
Adam Hartfield Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Oh please! Try Mrs. Elva Miller's "Monday Monday" or "These Boots Are Made For Walking". Blows Shatner away.
angelmusicmaven Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I've got a couple of Tiny Tim CDs (they were free)... there's something utterly psychotic about him doing "Hey Jude."  WHOA.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Tiny Tim was actually a good musician. He was campy and went for laughs but he knew his stuff. The funniest is his Stairway to Heaven.
Agent Scully Back · 18 years, 9 months ago

I met him (Tiny Tim) in 1991 after a concert he gave at our County Fair.

Scary looking man - I got his autograph.

Eri · 18 years, 10 months ago

If we're going entirely on how I feel about it, I'm not ashamed of any of my collection.

There are lots that I'm sure y'all think I should be ashamed of: all three regular 'Nsync albums, Christina Aguilera's Stripped, Nick Carter's Now Or Never, Justin Timberlake's Justified, 2003 Grammy Awards Nominees... and, P!nk's Can't Take Me Home and M!ssundaztood! are at the top of my to-buy list. *shrugs* But, I'm not ashamed of any of them, no matter how much my boyfriend thinks I should be... I like having some music like this around.

Eri Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
She's just so catchy. And cyoooooooote. *grins*
Andrea Krause Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Yeah, I have Pink. SO not ashamed of that. She kicks butt. :)
Eri Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

Wow, not even alone.

And look, my icon changed just in time. ;)

Brian Dinsky · 18 years, 10 months ago
I still have my Milli Vanilli cassette. Where's my prize?
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
You can't pick up the prize yourself. But somebody that lipsynches your voice can.
Eri Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
*lip-synchs to riff's voice*
Agent Scully Back · 18 years, 9 months ago

My dad has both of their tapes (the original and the remix tape).

He wont' get rid of them and still listens to them.

Hell, we have a Milli Vanilli poster still hanging in our garage from when I worked at Record Theatre. :)

Laura P. · 18 years, 10 months ago

Casette single of Snow's "Informer"

I'm trying to sell all my embarassing stuff on ebay. Anyone want George Michaels' "Faith?"

I can see the bunny Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Hey! Snow and George Michael both kick butt! :)
Lisa Kay Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I thought I was the only one left who still loved George Michael! Faith is the SEXIEST album EVER!!!
nate... Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Ewww! He's even greasier than Jian! :D
emilie is CRANKY Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

hehehe! informer was just the best song EVER :D we argued for weeks over what the actual words were. i don't think anyone really knew, though :)

*goes off to download* :D

nate... Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Isn't it, "Inforrrmer... me no say do lay diddle I go blaaahh... and icky boom boom there...."

emilie is CRANKY Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
i thought it was 'icky boom boom down'. ;)
Andrea Krause Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I thought it was "licky" :)
Josh Woodward Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Yeah, I did too. :) Actually, I'm pretty positive it is..
nate... Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Well, Whattayaknow....

It's still a shit-ass "song" though. :)
nate... Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
And, holy crap!
He's Steven Page's 2nd cousin???
HAHAHAHHAA
That's hilarious.
I can see the bunny Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Snow is an incredible singer and one of *the* most hysterical characters! Drea and I saw him do a Bluebird North songwriters show with Jian, Jimmy Rankin and Brent Titcomb. His rendition of Mrs. Robinson with lyrics about smoking pot had the whole place laughing so hard we were almost in tears. :)
