Y'all, it's not like I've ever been anything other than mainstream here; I don't even like South by Southwest that much (for the love of God, don't spread that around; pretty sure you can get thrown out of Austin for that). But there is a line, and that line is anyone that appears on the Disney Channel or Cartoon Network.
...I just caught myself singing ...thought you should know I tried my best to let go of you and I have a horrible feeling I've been humming along with this for a while. Can I claim some kind of identity crisis and have a hipster-lite thing going on?
So, looking at my active workplace playlist--

...yes, I listen to two different versions of Running Up That Hill on the same rotation. People, I have a playlist devoted to Hallelujah. I also have a playlist devoted to songs that I like but keep forgetting I have. No, it's actually called that. Songs I Like and Forget I Have. It's kind of small. I keep forgetting to add music to it.
Show me your musical (maybe) shame. Come on, everyone has some. I purchased Meatloaf's Bat Out of Hell two weeks ago. I cannot judge. At least, I don't think I can.
ETA: Okay, Unbeautiful has this huge crescendo moment and I actually started singing it. It's catchy! Unbeautiful by Lesley Roy. This kind of epitomizes my favorite music.
ETA 2: To be fair this is a really catchy song. DAMN YOU TEEN STARS. DAMN YOU ALL.
ETA 3: Okay, so there's something really satisfying about growling out take it like a man when all your macros have a break with reality. Thank you Pucifer. You have made my life better in so many ways.
