What's Buzzworthy: CDs You're Ashamed to Own

What's Buzzworthy: CDs You're Ashamed to Own

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:

Headlines and Deadlines: The Hits of A-Ha by A-Ha
Bookmarked by auroraforever, who said: "Not only do I still own this album, I had to replace it after one of my college roommates 'borrowed' it."

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."

World Clique by Deee-Lite
Picked by Fab_Kitty, who said: "They can have this CD when they pry it from my cold, dead hands."

The Buzz
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!"

"NKOTB: Face the Music" Remember when the New Kids on the Block tried to make a comeback by renaming themselves NKOTB? I still have this TAPE (I repeat, TAPE) somewhere in storage. "Dirty Dogs" was my favorite track. Does anyone else remember this album!?

I'm not ashamed of my Nsync cds. I am slightly ashamed of my Instant Star cd, because its the soundtrack for a kids show, and that's just sad. But I still listen.

Hanson and the Spice Girls!! Although I still like to bring those out every now and then, for nostalgia purposes, of course!! The only album I'm actually embarrassed to own is Sugar Ray's "11:59." It's awful and from 8th grade.

ellenmarie you just made me remember another bad cd i own. PARIS HILTON. Well i didn't actually pay for it.And even though i hate her- i refuse to delete some of the songs off my ipod.Because they are good to dance to. But i hate knowing that i enjoy something paris hilton created, well she didn't really create it. You know what i mean.

I think if I saw the Deee-Lite cd in a bargain bin somewhere I'd pick it up for a good roadtrip listen!

I own three of those CDs! And I also own the rest of Geri Halliwell's solo albums...I enjoy some good old cheesy, upbeat music sometimes and I'm not ashamed to say it! =) I also own all of the Backstreet Boys CDs and still like them. I am ashamed to say that I have most of Britney CDs though. I would probably still enjoy some of the music from the later ones if she wasn't such a joke now.
