Really? Not one? Bet you're lying.

Been though my collection today and discovered some horrors. Which, to make matters worse, I actually LIKE!!

You know you've got some, too. So how about we post our top 5 most embarassing (but liked) discs here?

Mine are:

1) Timeless - Sarah Brightman

2) Chariots Of Fire (OST) - Vangelis

3) Glitter - Mariah Carey

4) More Than You Know (The Best Of ...) - Martika

5) The Living Years - Mike & The Mechanics

Really embarrassed to admit this, but somehow (and I don't really know how!!), a Billy Ray Cyrus CD single made it into my CD collection.

Don't think I ever listened to it, and it is currently stuffed under a CD rack to straighten it up, so perhaps I shouldn't count it !!

Why are they embarrassing though?
If you like the music to begin with, to hell with what other people think. Be proud of what you like, thats what makes you the person that you are.
So what if your not out there buying the latest fad record, it just goes to prove that you have your own tastes :smashin:

I like some stuff by

Chicago
Robert Palmer.
Michael bolton
Phil Colins.
Bervely Craven.

And loads of other stuff that a lot of people have not even heard of or remember. I have a great deal of sound tracks that take pride of place in my CD collection. I am not embarrassed by any of them.
Let us go forward together and celebrate the diversity of our individual musical ideas, and together, we can make the world, a better place. :D ;) :thumbsup:


I thank you :clap:

I've got not one, but two Shania Twain albums :eek: One is the 'respected' Come on Over but even worse is the universally panned Up! :zonked: I don't know why I want to listen to all that feminist man-bashing but sometimes I just do :suicide:

Hooray for common sense Dave. I have some really dire stuff within my CD's and I go real cold when people ask if they can browse through. I hope they don't notice but they usually find them. However why should I care, I bought them because for whatever reason at the time I wanted to. But I'm not saying what they are here, I'm just admitting I have some howlers.

But I guess that also depends on the size of your collection too though huh, I think I have over 2000 cds so finding the stinkers is difficult but they are there, I think mine must be the unplayed Danni Minogue album I bought purely for the poster which just proves the theory that the all marketing does work :clap: :clap:

I have got that album on CD Remastered & it's fantastic.
Thare are some brilliant tracks on that album. It's well produced and the remaster sounds Fab.

An embarassing album - Never.

Another Night and Land Of Make Believe, are the 2 stand out tracks for me.

Go Buy.

Hmm, got three or four CD singles that I wouldn't let out in public, top of the list has to be PJ & Duncan (aka Ant & Dec) with 'Tonight I'm Free'. Presumably on other nights they have to be paid for :rotfl:

Bought in my teen years when I was a fan of Byker Grove :blush:

I'd say I haven't a single embrassing CD in my collection but don't ask about the vinyl though.

Nothing to be embarassed about.
The vocals are absolutely brilliant.
I listen on a regular basis.

Mrs Peridot reckons that I've got lots of embarassing CDs (top of her list would be the classic Plutonium Alley by Mike Harding).

Every piece of music I have means something to me and I could not be embarrassed by any of it however the fact that Mrs Peridot keeps her Gilbert O'Sullivan CD in my collection is a source of grief :(

Three terrifying words - Smurfs. Go. Pop.

I have no idea where it is though but I'm hoping it managed to make its way to that special place in Hell reserved for those who re-record songs that were pretty terrible in the first place. I mean, how do you "parody" Technohead's 'I Wanna Be A Hippy'? Somehow, The Smurfs found a way and it wasn't pleasant...

No no!
"2 Become 1" was the only good Spice girls single.
B*witched actually released some very good singles, "Weatherman" being one of them.
But "Babe" is no good. "Never Forget" (remixed by Jim Steinman!:eek:) is magnificent, "Pray" was wonderful and "Back For Good" a classic.
Be proud!
Derek
