It's baaaaaaack. Long-time readers of brokencool will be very familiar with the Embarrassing Music On My iPod feature. What's it all about? Exactly what it sounds like. Each week we'll take a look inside brokencool's iPod and pull out the most embarrassing shit on there. In defense of myself, I now have a puppy and am pretty domesticated so that's my excuse for all of these.
But what about your iPod? Do you have embarrassing stuff on there? Songs you wouldn't want other people to hear? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Look...Billy Joel is the shit. He's one of brokencool's favourite recording artists of all-time (fight me)...but even Billy Joel has some songs that you would never want popping up on 'shuffle' at a party. One of those songs, and Embarrassing Music On My iPod #47 is Billy Joel's "Downeaster Alexa":
This found its way on my iPod after hearing it used in "Hangover 2" during the walk-through the airport at the beginning of the movie. Not sure how, as a massive Billy Joel fan (again, fight me) this was never on my radar.
