LWP XI: Songs of Shame



A rather special LWP round this one. Instead of posting the songs you like that you want others to hear, this time the goal is to post songs you like that you don't want others to hear in other words songs that you're embarrassed over liking.

Entries (one per person) can be sent in in three different ways:

1) Send a high-bitrate mp3 file to my e-mail account, birdseed -at- loudmedicine -dot- net, anonymised or not anonymised.

2) If you don't know how to handle MP3s, just send the uncompressed Wav file you get when ripping a CD to the same address. OR, alternatively, just e-mail me the name of the track and I'll find it on torrent/soulseek.

3) If you absolutely know what you're doing, you can upload the song to imeem yourself. I've set up an account at http://www.imeem.com for this purpose:

e-mail: counterglowlwp@gmail.com
password: singh

Properly anonymous files only, please.

Once we're done, the feature will be available for commenting at http://cg-lwp.blogspot.com/

Deadline 2 weeks from now, August 8.

Hrmm. Surely for us to be embarassed by liking a song it will by definition be reasonably well-known and recognisable?

Not necessarily. I'm putting on a fairly obscure track I like that happens to go against a bunch of principles I've espoused on this site and elsewhere. That's embarassing.

Or you could put on a track that has characteristics that, if people knew them, it would be considered embarassing.

I'm too old to be embarrassed of the music I listen too. I think I did too many really, REALLY embarrassing things in my life.

However, I could send a track I imagine people might think I should be embarrassed to listen to. Would that be sufficient?

That'll probably my approach as well. I had a quick browse through the music I have available here, and I found very little that would fit the theme. Maybe I'll come up with something next week.

according to past comments by other posters here, I should be ashamed of liking Evanescence. But actually I'm not, I like them and I don't care what others think.

I won't be bothered to meddle with audio files tho, sorry

Just email me the title of a track and I'll find it if you can't be bothered.

I agree. Just take the widest possible interpretation. Maybe your mate with a crap music taste recommended it or it reminds you of a night out when you embarassed yourself. If David Floyd was doing this, he could pick whichever song was playing at the After Dark when he threw up...

I have a couple of shameful songs in my collection but they are so well known that it'd be pretty pointless putting them into LWP. I had to be more creative...

I just picked a generic 'guilty pleasure' type song. I'm not at all ashamed of liking it really.

I'll send in something too, but I'm still undecided between a few tracks. Two of them would fit the theme to some extent, the other three don't really. Ah well, it'll be in before the end of the week.

Recieved Funko's as well. That's ten. Anything more now is a bonus as far as I'm concerned.
