TGIF (Last Saturday Night) by Katy Perry
I'm sure there are others but that's the first to come to mind.
"Teenage Dream" for me as well. I hate all of Katy Perry's other stuff, but damn that song is catchy.
Muskrat Love. The shame, oh, the SHAME!!!!!
"What A Fool Believes" (Shut up, it's a good song.)
A disco remix of "Let Your Love Flow", which is inexplicable and inexcusable
The song cycle "Kindertotenlieder" by Mahler.
I didn't even know there WAS a disco remix of Let Your Love Flow!
Tubthumping by Chumbawamba and Whoomp There It Is by Tag Team.
Let's Go To The Mall - Robin Sparkles
'Two Whoops And A Holler' - Jean Shepard
"Why oh Why" by ATC.
Puff the Magic Dragon sung by Peter, Paul and Mary. For real. And I don't have children.
R5! Is that the mix that has some woman saying "The music just turns me on" in it??!!! That mix is awesome!! My song would be the cheesetastic "One for Sorrow" by Steps.
[quote]s that the mix that has some woman saying "The music just turns me on" in it??!!! That mix is awesome!!
Haha, yes, that's the one.
Also "Marcia Baila" by Les RIta Mitsouko. I'm wondering if I really think the songs themselves are dorky or if they remind me of a time when I was a dorky kid.
Night Fever Bee Gees
Remix of some Celine Dion song
It Takes Two Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock
Eye In The Sky by The Alan Parsons Project
Love You Inside Out by The Bee Gees
"Good night, sleep tight etc." from the Lawrence Welk show.
Mahler is "dorky," R6?
Break my Stride by Matthew Wilder. What can I say? It makes me happy whenever I listen to it.
I love that, R21. It was one of my dead friends' theme song.
Wow. I have almost ALL of these on my phone (I do not and will never own an 'iPod').
I wouldn't consider any of these songs "dorky."
The theme to "One Day At A Time"? Now that's dorky.
Yes, it's on my iPod
'Kites Are Fun' by the Free Design and 'Tonight You Belong To Me' by Patience & Prudence.
Well, I only have this thread to blame for the fact that I just downloaded the "Good Night, Sleep Tight" song from the Lawrence Welk Show ("Adios, Au Revoir, Aufwiedersehn") .
Let's all do it and send it to #1 on the Billboard charts!
"Love Will Keep us Together," Captain and Tennille.
I would be mortified if anyone I knew found out I had the entire first album by Clay Aiken on my mp3 player.
Bounce Your Boobies by Rusty Warren
I wonder if there's an app that allows you to store & hide the embarrassing part of your music collection?
r30, I need that!
Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep

That hits a nerve. That song came out when I was a senior in high school deep in flyover country, desperate to escape. I loved the song and the stylish music video (still do), but mostly my friends and I thought ourselves so cosmopolitan for knowing the words to a song in French. Whereas we were just dorks.
Listening to iHeart radio's smooth jazz station.
They are playing Gino Vanellis' "I Just Wanna Stop." This was THE hit when I was in HS. I remember it being played at one of my proms.
Anyone have this on their iPod?
[quote]"Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry
The Gay Men's Chorus sang that (or rather marched to a recording of themselves singing it) in our recently held pride parade. Peculiar choice for a bunch of 50 year old men.
Me too r61. Love that song.
I have both of Adam Lambert's CDs on my ipod.
Don't judge me.
Romper Room themesong, It's soothing.
Break My Stride.
Gem Sweater by Leslie Hall an the Ys
I saw several mentions of Bee Gees songs. There IS NOTHING dorky about the Bee Gees. Believe it or not, I'm an old school '70s hard rocker/metal-head guy and I loved the Bee Gees (even their disco stuff). No shame in loving the Bee Gees. I still think they were fantastic. Carry on.
I downloaded a bunch of old K-tel records and it's on one of those.
I see your 'I Just Wanna Stop" and 'Black Cars', and win with my straight of 'People Gotta Move', 'Brother to Brother' and "Wild Horses'.
The Name Game.
Both the original and the Jessica Lange.
The pussycat song by Connie Vannett.
Oh.... and Doin the Do by Betty Boo.
'Havin My Baby' and 'My Heart Will Go On'.
Oh, I still love "Erus Tu" after all these years. Looooove it.
I have tons of Archies songs from my childhood. Dorky but good memories attached. Tommy Roe's "Dizzy:" too.
Shut Up And Let Me Go - The Ting Tings
I love it, a fun and simple song but has that dork factor going on in there.
Filthy Gorgeous - Scissor Sisters
Love the music, not so much the lyrics.
"I think we're alone now" - Tiffany but I also have the much cooler Lene Lovitch version.
Party Rock Anthem
Theme From a Summer Place
Goodbye - Air Supply
Gordon Lightfoot - The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
Oh, the shame... I even turn the volume way down if I'm listening with my headphones on and there's someone around who might hear.
Please r81, the Bee Gees and their shrill, near Chipmunks harmonies define "dorky." Overrating the annoying Bee Gees is what doomed disco to an early death.
You Take My Breath Away - Rex Smith
Theme to Dance Fever - Triple S Connection
C is for Cookie & Telephone Rock from Sesame Street
I'm a Pepper from the Dr. Pepper commercial
Turn Up the Music - Lemonade Mouth Disney Soundtrack
Pfft, You Were Gone & Gloom, Despair and Agony on Me from Hee Haw
Leif Garrett - I was Made for Dancin'
Tons of tv theme songs including both the opening and closing theme of The Price is Right.
"Club Tropicana" by Wham!
"Dorkiest"? Probably They Might Be Giants "Why Does The Sun Really Shine? (The Sun is a Miasma of Incandescent Plasma)"
I just uploaded Aretha's complete Atlantic Singles. Her disco single "Ladies Only" is bloody awful (and I like good disco). She speaks French at one point. Her pronunciation has to be heard to be believed.
I also have pretty much everything Lulu ever released, which includes more than a fair share of dorky tracks. Special mention for: I'm A Tiger and My Boy Lollipop. No Champagne for Lulu in those cases.
I've slowly come to realise that my ipod is stocked with dorky songs. Thank Jeebus for password-protection.
This one is from the Dutch Eurovision entry of 1970: 'Hearts of Soul' with 'Waterman' ("Aquarius" in Dutch).
