Day 28 - 30 Day Music Challenge

A song that makes you feel guilty...

I've ummed and ahhed over this challenge for DAYS now and I still can't think of a song that makes me feel guilty. Who has a song like that?! Murderers who listen to their ipod whilst on a killing spree?

I can't answer this challenge. Sorry! Music FAIL!

And, to make matters worse, this song is now stuck in my head. Aarrrgh!

Am I alone in not having a song that makes me feel guilty. Have you got one?


Nik Perring said...

And now it's in MY head. Taylor!!!!

Nope, never felt guilty about liking a song.

Actually, no! Yes I do! I really like 'One' by U2. I just don't like U2 (political reasons). So, yes. There you go. Guilty as charged!

Karen said...

Does it mean a song you feel a bit embarrased about liking?

Something by Westlife perhaps?

Not that I do I hasten to add, but I am partial to a couple of Dolly Parton tunes. (Don't tell anyone.)

Nik - It's not off the same album as 'One' but, however much you might knock U2, you can't knock the 'Joshua Tree' - it's a top album. Okay, so you COULD knock it but then we'd have to have words! ;)

Karen - Ssssh, don't tell anyone but I have a real soft spot for 9-5 and Jolene! :)

I can't think of a song that makes me feel guilty, either. The nearest thing is 'Ode To Billie Jo' (Bobbie Gentry) which always seems to me to be suffused with guilt, although that may just be my reading.

I too am partial to a couple of Dolly Parton tunes. They're catchy and you can sing along to them. Plus, her version of I Will Always Love You is a much, sweeter purer version that Whitney's warbling.

I don't think this part was about guilty secrets though was it? But it's hard to know as the challenge does repeat itself a lot. I chose Sondheim's Children Will Listen, because it's a song that makes me think about all the off the cuff things I said to my kids when they were little. And I feel guilty about that. Especially about saying the things my mother said to me ... blush. But maybe I misinterpreted the question and should have chosen another Barry Manilow...

Bernadette said...

I took it the same way as you Sally - a song that makes you think about something you've done/not done that you feel guilty about.

I do have one, but I'm not going to share because then I'd have to tell you why and it wouldn't show me in a very good light! (Don't worry, Cally, it wasn't murder!)

Quillers said...

Because of course Bernadette, we're all absolute angels who've never done anything that we regret ;-)

But if it's private, we'll forgive you xxx

At my brother-in-law's wedding, his bride Christine, my SIL Sinead, my other BIL's girlfriend and I were all dancing, sisters together.

'What's that sisters song?' said Sinead. 'The one we were singing down the phone to Christine when we heard she was engaged?'

I couldn't remember, then suggested Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves, so the DJ was asked to put that on for us, which he did.

The right song was We Are Family (I got all my sisters with me). Always felt guilty that I didn't remember that and we therefore danced to the wrong song.

At Sinead's later wedding I got it right, and we had a drunken huggy dance to We Are Family.
