What’s the most embarrassing song on your iPod? I asked this question to a sampling of people and the results are quite interesting, ranging from alternative rockers Weezer to pop star Fergie. We all have those songs that we love, but hate to admit it. My most embarrassing would have to be Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA”, which reminds me of a fun day tailgating at the University of Iowa last fall. I think that is why most people have these songs on their iPods; hearing it might bring them back to the days of college, hype them up for a night out, or mark a significant point in their life. The reasons are endless, that’s why music can be a wonderful inspiration for most people.
