iTunes music downloads we regret

Philip Michaels | April 29, 2013
The great thing about the iTunes Store is that you can buy just about any song you can imagine, cheaply and easily. And the worst thing about the iTunes Store? Sometimes you can buy those songs a little too easily.

Why purchase it then? I'm ashamed to admit that I did it to torture my wife. When things get testy around the house, you can count on me blasting "The Joker" from end to end. Fair fight? Not on your life.

And here's Dan Moren's contribution to our public confessional:

"Accidentally In Love" by Counting Crows. I mean, what can you say about a song with "accidentally" in the title? The year was 2004, and I think I'd recently seen Shrek 2, in which this Counting Crows song figured prominently. While perhaps not as egregious as Smash Mouth's cover of the Monkees' "I'm a Believer" from the first movie in that series, "Accidentally in Love" quickly lost its charm as an earworm and instead became a grating reminder to be more careful about what songs I spend my 99 cents on.

And finally, we turn to Jason Snell for the last word:

Anything I ever downloaded from Glee. All the Glee. Simply Glee.
