I'm linking up with Stasha for Monday Listicles. Bruna from Bees With Honey gave us the topic of telling our life story through songs or music videos.
But I decided to go a little bit rogue and adjust the topic a bit for myself.
10 Songs from My Youth that I Thought Were Awesome for Their Genuine Awesomeness, but Now Think Are Awesome for Their Utter Ridiculousness
1. “Ice, Ice, Baby”, Vanilla Ice. Got this tape from my brother for one of my birthdays. Best. Gift. Ever.
2. “Hangin' Tough”, New Kids on the Block. I heart you, Donnie. I heart you so very much.
3. “Electric Youth”, Debbie Gibson I danced around in my living room and sang into a pretend microphone to this song. I was gonna make it big someday.
4. “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”, Whitney Houston. I also boogied in my living room to this one.
5. “Can't Touch This”, MC Hammer. I wore Hammer pants in sixth grade. Yes, I was that cool.
6. “Step by Step”, New Kids on the Block. I didn't like this as much as their previous album, but I still heart Donnie.
7. “Everybody Dance Now”, C & C Music Factory. I'm pretty sure my cheer leading team did a dance routine to this.
8. “Bust a Move”, Young MC. I danced many a time to this song at school dances. And come to think of it, currently at weddings.
9. “The Sign”, Ace of Base. I used this song to help get over my first boyfriend.
10. “Whoomp! (There It Is)”, Tag Team. I may or may not have joined in the random usage of the phrase “Whoomp, there it is!” in regular conversation.
What's a song from your youth that was awesome for its genuine awesomeness, but is now awesome for its ridiculousness?
