In case anyone is ever in danger of being intimidated by my sophisticated musical tastes, here’s my secret shame: I have a playlist for when I’m in the mood for sappy pop songs. Some highlights:
1. Your Love The Outfield
It’s just got the best/worst pick-up lines in the history of ever. “I like my girls a little bit older, but hey, you’re here and Josie’s not, so … wanna hook up?” I guess it’s based on a real drunk episode? But they just play it with such conviction.
2. Beautiful Soul Jesse McCartney
3. Girlfriend Avril Lavigne
4. Tattoo Jordin Sparks
6. How You Remind Me Nickelback
7. My Love Justin Timberlake Feat. T.I.
8. …Baby One More Time Britney Spears
It’s got a great beat, and you can dance to it …
10. Savin’ Me Nickelback
Yes, that’s two Nickelback songs in the list–what? Like you’ve never found yourself singing along with theTV show promos that use their songs.
11. Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin’ Journey
There are more, but that’s enough embarrassing reveals for one list.
