The Ultimate Cheesy Mixed CD

Last night I was driving home from tutoring (yet again!) and found myself singing loudly along to Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes." Now, this is a very cheesy song, I realize, but I happen to really, really like it. It's all wrapped up in something to do with the over-the-top lyrics and its inclusion in "Say Anything." It got me thinking about songs that I am slightly embarassed about enjoying, because they are terribly corny or silly or whatever, but not so embarassed that I would change the station to hide my enjoyment from people around me and thus miss hearing the rest of the song.

So with that as the intro, may I present to you, Rachel's Ultimate Cheesy Mixed CD:

Beach Boys - Wouldn't It Be Nice
Christopher Cross - Sailing
Cyndi Lauper - Time After Time
Berlin - Take My Breath Away
The Cars - Who's Gonna Drive You Home?
Peter Gabriel - In Your Eyes
The Ronnettes - Then He Kissed Me
Dadoo - Making Off (Generiq) (I know none of you know this one, but in the spirit of full disclosure I had to include it. It's French rap. Don't judge me.)
The Corrs - What Can I Do?
Sophie Hawkins - As I Lay Me Down

Which ones have I missed?

And this is why we're friends! I know all of the words every single song on that list, except the French one of course, and have "In Your Eyes" on a mix CD that I keep in my car b/c sometimes I just want to hear Peter Gabriel tell me that in my eyes he can see the doorway of a thousand churches!
