A New 30 Day Facebook Song Challenge :: Day 11 :: Song You’re Embarrassed to Like

Being a guy who has reviewed music over the past decade, I have made a concious effort to take in as much music as I can from a variety of genres, and there are going to be those tunes that catch your ear that you just can’t deny. With these sorts of tunes, all you can do is own it, you dig em, so who cares what other people think? There have been a few songs lately that would fall into this category (see “Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift, or “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen) but there aren’t too many songs that I’m “embarrassed” by, but there are a ton that are silly and vapid, but are ultimately catchy pieces of ear candy.

A song that I’m powerless against, and is still catchy as fuck is “Just Dance” by Lady Gaga (back in her artsy-Kristen Bell days). This song is nothing but sugary candy for your ears, it’s not going to solve any of the world’s problems, but it may take your mind off of those problems for 4 minutes. So there you have it, “Let’s Dance” by Lady Gaga is a song that against my own better judgement, I do enjoy and it makes me feel silly to say so.
