A lot of you dug through your treasure troves of nostalgic CDs this week for this week's Buzzworthy challenge on the albums you're ashamed you own. There were some great shameful CDs picked — but of course, as you all reminded me, there's really no shame in liking music that reminds you of a particular time or place. Even if it is O-Town.
Here were some of my faves:
*NSYNC by *NSYNC
Picked by fashionstar, who confessed: "I bought this CD gladly in 1998, and it's so embarrassing that I was so into these guys. I did look for it last year because I wanted to be a cheese ball and sing along to 'It's Tearing Up My Heart,' but I think someone threw it away. Of course I didn't ask anyone if they did, it's sad that I bought it in the first place."
Four more great picks, so
Silver Side Up by Nickelback
Chosen by yiddidea, who wrote: "I hate Nickelback. HATE. But I still own this album and won't throw it away. I guess I should also admit that when they opened for Bon Jovi two summers ago they actually kicked a** in concert. But no, I HATE Nickelback."
Bookmarked by JessNess, who wrote: "Compilation CDs are bad enough sometimes but The Buzz is pretty cheesy. It's basically 'hey remember these mediocre songs from the 90s?' but I still listen to it."
Schizophonic by Geri Halliwell
Chosen by swwonder, who said: "I know you're probably thinking, 'Geri Halliwell had a solo album?' (actually she had two) But not me, I knew all the words to the singles she released and even some dance moves. Aaaah, the memories!"
