OT: What is your secret favorite cheesy song?

Submitted by wolverine1987 on July 24th, 2010 at 1:46 AM

So everyone, no matter how sophisticated their musical taste, has that one song that you may possibly be embarrassed to have your friends discover in your iPod. That artist that may not have not much critical respect that has a song that you just love every time you hear it. Current or past, everyone has one.  In my case I have several, but I'll offer one to start: Jessie's Girl by Rick Springfield. What's yours? The internet is offering you anonymity...

Anything Taylor Swift, "All the Single Ladies", Party in the USA, Anything Lady Gaga, "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go", there are others but I should probably stop now.

the thing is the person who "wrote" the music for the song. They could of changed the tempo and a few other things. Then marketing it to the other singers as  new material. Artist's these days are under so much pressure to put out new material. That they sometimes do no catch it. This happened to a Beyonce song last year or so.

You are correct though, creatvity has gone by the wayside.

Blasting out of a rental car in LA out at the Rose Bowl. Tell me after 4 years of Michigan not being Michigan it didn't connect..."When we're winning, I'll be singing..I get knocked down, but I get up again, you're never going to keep me down..."  And it's a song about drinking.  Classic.

Every time I get RickRolled I have to watch the whole thing. I turn it up when it's on the radio. Then I don't sleep for a week because it's stuck in my head.

I'll even go further and give you my two favorite qoutes from said movie:

"Catches bullets with his teeth?! N*gga please!!

 "You just get that sucker to the designated place at the designated time, and I will gladly designate his ass... for dismemberment!"

That is also one of my favorite cheesy movies of all time, and also the song "Treat Her Like A Lady" by the Temptations is on that soundtrack and that song is the shiznit!

I remember when they would come to U-M for the regional competitions...really the only group I ever saw that was better than Michigan's finest. They absolutely brought the house down when they did Aaliyah's "Are you That Somebody". Wasn't surprised at all to see them branch off and go pro.
