Twisted Mix-Tape Tuesday

It's Tuesday!  Time to link up with Jen, who blogs at My Skewed View for this week's . . .
 
The rules are simple and two:  Five songs.  Stick to the theme. 
This week’s theme is Guilty Pleasures: Songs or Bands You Hate to Admit You Love,
offered to us by Sarah The Sadder But Wiser Girl.
I'd like to say that the only reason I know this song is because once upon a time, my 14-yo son was in lurrrve!!! with Taylor Swift.  I'd like to say that it's only because of his incessant playing of her music, a few years ago, that I know all the lyrics to this song (and quite a few of her others) by heart.  I'd like to say that I really don't much care, at all, for Taylor Swift.  I'd like to say that I wasn't singing along to this song as it played while I was leaving the Lou Gramm concert in Atlantic City last weekend, and I'd like to say that when the very nice woman in front of me turned and asked me, "Who sings this?", that I didn't immediately answer, "Ooh!  This is Taylor Swift!", and I'd further like to say that I did NOT sound like a prepubescent girl when I answered---
However . . . alas . . . I'd be lying if I did. 
Ahem . . . I'd like to say that this song isn't something I used to play on the jukebox back before my husband and I were married, and we used to go out and play pool together.  I'd like to say that I didn't go ahead and actually purchase this song on iTunes when I couldn't find my downloaded mp3 after my computer became possessed a few years ago.  Again . . . ?  I'd be lying.
Man . . . I'm just pathetic.
Yep.  It just keeps getting worse.  (Speaking of guilty pleasures, this right here is one of my Guilty Pleasure Movies.  I may as well admit it . . . in for a penny, in for a pound.)
Now . . . if this doesn't just scream, "I AM A COMPLETE AND UTTER GEEK!", I don't know what does.  I love the original Goyte song.  I do.  (That in and of itself is a guilty pleasure, since my 15-yo informs me that no one listens to that song anymore, because it has been completely played out.)  But I prefer the parody . . . and it drive my kids bonkers when I play it and sing along at the top of my lungs.

Picking only 5 songs was tough.  I mean, I didn't even delve into my Weird Al or Glee songs (yes, Glee . . . and yes, I mean the Glee versions).  Or the songs from the Buffy soundtrack & musical (yes, Buffy did a musical episode in Season 6 -- all hail Joss).  Or my ABBA songs, or my Meatloaf songs, or my really bad 80s One Hit Wonders collection . . .

~sigh~

      By the by . . . after reading you post, I'd like to let you know that Careless Whisper will be on repeat in my head for the foreseeable future.

      I may not last the week.

  3. Wowza! Now, THIS is a list! You and I could be super geek friends apparently because I love your list. Taylor, Brit, sane Miley! Yep. The only one I didn't know was Star Wars but love Gotye!

    1. "Sane Miley" . . . ha! Yep, that's one way to put it. Have you seen her video for Adore You? I caught my 7-yo watching it on VH1 before school the other morning. UGH!! First, I didn't realize VH1 still showed music videos . . . and second, wasn't VH1 supposed to be a tamer, more "easy-listening" version of MTV?! Regardless, that Miley doesn't belong on either station, and I certainly never want my 7-yo viewing that video, again, EVER.

  4. My son and I liked the Star Wars parody video--and I pretty much feel that way about the newer Star Wars movies too. I still love the Goyte song (and I didn't even know if was played out, so you have that over me). ;)

    Love the parody too :-)
    It's all so perfect!

    1. Thanks, Jen! I just got this new iPod Shuffle. It's waterproof, so when I'm doing my aqua aerobics at the gym with all the 70-plus-yo ladies, I can jam. I get a real kick out of it when one of them asks me what I'm listening to, and the blank looks that follow after I try to explain. It's a highlight of my week.

  6. What an interesting idea- a mix tape like this. I'm a fan of Oops too. LOL
    Parodies are always fun. I've always liked weird Al's parodies.

    I'm a new follower, found you on the A-Z linky list. Looking forward to what you post in April for the challenge.

    1. Twisted Mix-Tape is a great hop! I always miss it the most when I go MIA.

      Thanks so much for coming to visit, and for following . . . and for reminding me that I'm so not ready for A-to-Z!! LOL

      Heading your way, now . . .
