Writer's Block: Secret song

What's the most embarrassing CD or track in your music library? How often do you listen to it? Do you share it with your friends or keep it to yourself?

Let's see. I have several songs on my iPod that would make a number of people cringe. One of my favorite albums is the Alan Parsons Project Definitive Collection which I play over and over again. (You know it is bad when one of your father's favorites becomes your own, especially after he has already 'moved on' from it. sheesh.) Then we could just take the first song listed alphabetically: 'Abracadabra' by the Steve Miller Band. (ouch)

But really, the worst song in my iTunes library is... (drum roll)... 'My Eyes Adored You' by Frankie Valli. I even cringe to think about it. In fact I don't even listen to it, but I have to keep it. You see, it was the first record I ever bought in my entire life. I was seven years old and addicted to the radio. I loved ALL the sappy songs: 'Seasons In the Sun', 'Billy, Don't Be A Hero', and Neil Sedaka's 'Laughter In the Rain'. Scary, no? But it's true, and when my mom took me to the store and said, "Okay, you can have one record. (45rpm)" I chose Frankie Valli.

I could picture the song in my head and thought for sure that was how my life would be. I would meet some cute girly bookworm, we would be friends, she would pretty much ignore the fact that I was in love with her, and then - years later - we would look back and share some fond memory of days gone by. And, um, that's pretty much how it went... with EVERY girl I met in high school. Damn. Stupid song.
