I'm Coming Out

Don't Panic mom ! I simply would like to take a moment to say that we all have skeletons in our closets. The skeletons of which I speak of are those songs and artists that we may not be so eager to admit that we listen to or like.

I have decided to disclose this personal information about myself because I truly believe we all have someone we listen to that others find silly, outdated, or just downright repulsive.

So here is a list of artists and songs that I like and maybe a little sentimental reason behind why I am so loyal.

First and foremost Michael Jackson. He's creepy and strange with less than one percent of his original face left ( and the rest detachable) but gosh darn it , I just want to bust a move every time I hear his old school stuff.. what can I say.

Lenny Kravits ( If he ever shows up at my door and asks me to run off with him, I told Alex, he will just have to understand.)

Billy Idol - White wedding ( if you say you don't like Billy .. you are lying)
Bobby Brown - ahh junior high school
Cake - Short skirt long jacket/ every girl wants to be like the one described in this song ( with fingernails that shine like justice)
Black eyed Peas- my kids get psychotic when I sing their songs
Boyz 11 Men - oh baby !
The Carrs - okay when I was a kid they had a video on MTV and he was a fly, after that I was hooked
Kool and the Gang - She's Fresh ( that song is so fresh)
Pet Shop Boys - Eastern Boys Western Girls .. so hot
Wyclef Jean - sometimes I just want to move to Port Au Prince, make my hair into dreads and strum my guitar on the beach.
Duran Duran - Hungry Like the Wolf
Tom Petty - a little demented .. which is just how I like it
Sting/Police - Don't stand so close to me - The theme song of every good looking male high school teacher
Toto - Africa
Toni Tony Tone - I got nothin here
Flock Of Seagulls - I ran ( when one feels like running )
Rolling stones ( table dance!)
Wang Chung ( eighties party song yeah!)
New Edition
Earth Wind and Fire ( great for romantic moments .. which people my age no longer experience)
George Michael ( I liked him before he came out okay? Besides after he did his music just wasn't that good anymore anyways. )

I think I've embarrassed myself enough .. your turn.

Can I just say, Barry Manilow?

Ambie said...

Ha! You listen to Barry Manilow? Just havin a little fun with you Cheryl !

The Houston Family said...

It's not the age that is stopping the romantic moments, it is those 10 beautiful children of yours. I still can't figure out how you got the 10th!

Cheryl said...

There must be more romance than you realize!

Barry Manilow rocks! I used to love The Captain and Tenille, The Carpenters, Bread, Simon and Garfunkel, The Turtles.......

Does this age me??

Jillee Brown said... really not sure what to say about this ambie. i thought you were cooler than that. ;) haha yeah right. i LOOOVE michael jackson. i couldnt think of a better artist to play at my wedding someday.

Ambie said...

Really Jill? hmm which song ? Thriller no doubt, or maybe smooth criminal.

Cheryl age is nothing but a number who is the captain and Tenille? I guess that was before I was born.

Heather said...

Copacabana is one of my all time favorite songs. I know I will get hell for this but....NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK BABY!!! I've loved them forever!!!!

Ambie said...

I love New Kids and Mili Vanili too.. or whoever the REAL singer was

Cheryl said...

I really feel old now. Captian and Tenille is a pop group from the 70's. You are right, it was probably before you were born. They sang, "Love will keep us together" and my favorite, "Muskrat Love."

Two words:
Country Music

You know you love it Ambie, no need to stay in the closet, or the corral, on that one.

My all-time favorite country music verse:

I got drunk the night that mama got out of prison.
I went to pick her up in the rain.
But before I could reach her in my pick up truck,
she got run over by a train.

I just don't see how anyone can't like country music. There's a tear in my beer, y'all.
