I take pride in my musical upbringing thanks to my Smashing-Pumpkins-and-System-of-a-Down-listening brother, The-Doors-and-Pink-Floyd-listening father and Bob-Marley-and-Bob-Dylan-listening mother. Because of them, I successfully dodged the Kelly Family bullet and until a couple of years ago, I thought that Caught in the Act was a song by Backstreet Boys or vice versa. That's why it's really hard for me to admit when I like some über popish song and I try to fight my feelings and refuse to bob my head to it or sing along - I know all the Nirvana lyrics by heart and know who Mark Knopfler is, for Peet's sake, I can't be liking no pop music!
But whether I like it or not, there are songs which are too powerful and I can literally lose it when I hear some of the following tunes in a club or a bar, providing I'm intoxicated enough to be unable to filter myself, of course. And since I always pick on people, who listen to Justin Bieber or like those ridiculous Pitbull collab songs, and I banned some of the following artists from my boyfriend's car CD collection, I thought it would be fun to give a list of some of my current (and some evergreen) favorites because I'm just tired of hiding and there ain't no shame in my game! So here we go:
- Christina Aguilera: Your Body (listen)
- Britney Spears: One Two Three (listen)
- Britney Spears: Dance Until the World Ends (listen)
- Dino Merlin feat. Ivana Banfic: Godinama (listen)
- Usher feat. Pitbull: DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love (listen)
- Justin Bieber feat. Nicki Minaj: Beauty and a Beat (listen)
- Ceca: Pazi s kime spavas (listen)
- Rihanna: Where Have You Been (listen)
- Miley Cyrus: We Can't Stop (listen)
- Black Eyed Peas: The Time (Dirty Bit) (listen)
I know it's "wrong" for me to like these tracks because no respectful person, who listened to Annie Lennox as a child and went to music school and played piano for 7 years, should say these songs are good, but I do like them and I do think they are good. This is my perfect weekend playlist and I'm going to enjoy it - the weekend and the playlist. I hope you do too!
