The Most Embarrassing Song On Your iPod

Iris Goldsztajn / Daily Bruin

This week, Mojo roamed around campus asking confused students what the most embarrassing song on their iPod was. Here are their fun answers.

“‘Barbie Girl,’ by Aqua.” – Nadim Choufi, second-year chemical engineering student

“Some Hannah Montana, a lot of High School Musical.” – Kelsey Mott, third-year physiological science student

“‘Iko Iko,’ by Aaron Carter. I highly recommend it; it’s a 90s hit.” – Hannah Park, first-year biology student

“The Mario theme.” – Daniel Smith, second-year ecology, behavior and evolution student

“It’s not really embarrassing, but I’d be shy if someone heard it. It was because of my music history class. ‘Yummy Yummy,’ by Ohio Express.” – Aracely Roque, second-year psychology student

“The entire ABBA soundtrack.” – Christina Mattson, second-year undeclared student

“A lot of classical music.” – Timothy Aguilar, second-year astrophysics student

“‘Gangnam Style.’” – Chigo Anene, second-year sociology student

“A cover of ‘La Vida Loca’ by Antonio Banderas and Eddie Murphy, from the Shrek 2 soundtrack.” – Landen Baldwin, second-year linguistics student

“Being a proud fan, I can’t say that I personally find it embarrassing, but others usually snicker when I say Call Me Maybe,’ by Carly Rae Jepsen.” – Brenden Case, second-year applied mathematics student


Even Mojo bloggers don’t always have the best taste in music (what!). Here are some of our guilty pleasures.

“My endless compilation of showtunes from several Broadway musicals.” – Brian Pham

“I still have my angsty middle school playlist. It features the All-American Rejects, Weezer, Fall Out Boy and lots of Blink 182. Because 30-year-old men in eyeliner really understood 13-year-old me.” – Stephanie Orpilla

“‘Bet On It,’ from High School Musical 2, because that is the best song to get pumped up to.” – Sarah Greenwald

‘Barbie Girl,’ by Aqua.” – Julianna Foster

I definitely have roughly 83% of those songs, but I think I’m going to go with ‘Queen of Mars,’ sung by Candace on Phineas and Ferb.” – Iris Goldsztajn
