Normally I don't dwell on the times I sang for a school choir, but for the purpose of this list, this is a song I had to sing to the audience one December when Christmas was nearing.
I wouldn't have minded Deck The Halls, The First Nowell or Once In Royal David's City, but seriously, a 15 year old and others near my age and teachers, singing a kids' song?
The next year, because I was doing AS-Level Performing Arts, we had to organize a school production as part of our course and we ended up doing an Xmas Showcase Concert. I hoped to not sing for another choir, but we had no choice. At least we didn't have to sing this one again.

I was a member of this outside-of-school Performing Arts group. We would hold a show of various sources of the subject, once every term (Christmas, Easter, Summer). It was based in Leicestershire.
For one of the shows, some of us sang this song. I didn't mind doing a disco song, but the problem was; some of us was lads and lyrics indicated that the singer needed a bloke to dance with. We boys wanted to sing bird instead of man and girl instead of boy, but our tutor said to stick to the lyrics and saw no harm as nobody will notice.
Fair enough, but I felt that it made me sound homosexual. I don't have nothing against homosexuals, but I often feel embarrassed if I sing certain lyrics as opposed to interacting with guys. After all, I happen to be straight.

I've only seen bits of the film, but I've heard the full soundtrack and I can honestly say, I ain't a fan of it. Nor do the scenes appeal to me.
Still I didn't complain when I performed this with my PA group.

SOS - Rihanna
When we first rehearsed this one, I felt really embarrassed considering how close together the lyrics are. By close together, I mean no pauses, no voice breaks, no nothing.
I wouldn't have minded singing Umbrella or Shut Up & Drive, but it was 2007 at the time and neither of them two was released yet.

Hairspray (2007 Soundtrack) - Nikki Blonsky,James Marsden,Zac Efron,Michelle Pfeiffer,Brittany Snow,Elijah Kelley,Queen Latifah,Jo
We sang Welcome To The Sixties and You Can't Stop The Beat.
You Can't Stop The Beat ain't bad, though not brilliant, but the Sixties one ain't my favourite. For starters, I ain't keen on the lyrics.

Creep - Radiohead
I did a Music course at a college in a southern Leicestershire town once.
We had a range of gigs to perform. I perfromed this really depressing song in one of them. I know you're supposed to enjoy playing gigs, but this ain't the kind of song I enjoyed.

It's My Life, Pt.1 - Bon Jovi
One New Years Eve, we was at this bar in Enderby, Leicester, and I was going to karaoke something, but one of my insane mates decided to choose one for me and didn't even tell me what it was (surprise apparently).
When it was my turn to do a karaoke performance, I ended up singing this one. Because I forgot what it sounded like, I had trouble singing it. What a nightmare!

We was at the student union bar and I was with some of my housemates at the time.
One of them wanted to do this one and wanted to sing it with me. I sighed, "oh alright." I'm going to be quite frank, I am not a fan of Oasis and I personally find this song overrated.

You may not know this, but I used to be a Performing Arts student. This included acting, music and let's be honest, dancing.
But this is music related; I was only ever embarrassed to sing/perform particular songs in public. I was also a member of two performing arts related societies, including an Amateur Dramatics group.
