The only thing I really don't like about Spotify... is that it publishes the music that you're listening to to Facebook.
Unless you change your settings (which I always forget to do), it automatically tells all your friends which songs you're listening to!
Now, maybe I'm the only one who feels this way, but I can get a wee bit self-conscious about my music tastes.
I listen to a lot of classic stuff- like Tracy Chapman, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, Led Zep- stuff that nobody can dispute is damn fine music. But, like most people, I've also got my cringe-y music that I don't want anyone to know about.
Well, screw it. If Spotify's going to tell everyone anyway, I'd at least like to beat it to the punch. Here's all my cringe-y music, exposed to the world!
I know, he's "not cool", but I don't care, okay! His music makes me happy, and yes, it may be cheesy, but he's also a really great musician, so just SHUSH.
2. Taylor Swift
I think most teenage girls have been through a brief Swifty phase. I was about thirteen, and I still sometimes come back to her music if I'm feeling a bit low!
I like ABBA. I don't think I should really have to defend this one, they're the only good thing to come out of Eurovision... ever.
As a middle class white girl from North London, I always feel a little self-conscious about the fact that I like rap. I feel like its somehow uncool or weird for me to know all the words to Eminem songs, which is stupid I know, but I can't help it!
5. Avril Lavigne
Okay, so I wasn't a happy thirteen year old (who was??) and Avril Lavigne was my angsty music of choice for that period of time. Occasionally, I still play 'Girlfriend' if I'm feeling nostalgic!
So judge away, NAAB NUTTERs. Or, if you're feeling equally betrayed by Spotify's decision to publish my music choices, comment your cringey music below. Of course commenting is anonymous, so go for it! I look forward to reading about all of your most embarrassing teenage albums!
