at least a two
January 20, 2009
Kim and I watched Mama Mia the other night, which had me wondering, what’s the most embarrassing album I’ve ever knowingly, purposely purchased?
I mean, I went through my Styx phase in junior high, but that’s not really mortifying. I kind of like Charlotte Church, but that just shows diversity. I’ve even paid money for the Bay City Rollers, but that was elementary school, which excuses most things, plus those guys were cool. S S S S Saturday night!
While were were watching Mama Mia, I remembered that I once owned a copy of Abba’s Greatest Hits. And for a short minute, I figured that was it, what could be more embarrassing than a teenager sitting in his room singing along to Fernando?
Except, screw that, Abba rocks. I love Abba. Have you seen Murial’s Wedding? Have you been to Mama Mia? Timeless. Wonderful. I’m gonna find my copy and spin it up.
But that still leaves us with the question–which album purchase do I regret the most?
I hesitate to tell you. Really. I’d rather tell you about the time I pooped my pants. Wait, I already did that.
Okay, here we go: I once walked into a record store and bought a vinyl copy of the soundtrack to Xanadu.
I’m pretty sure that means I can never go lower than a 2 on the Kinsey Scale for the rest of my life.
I guess I can live with that.
