10 Songs Men Shouldn't Sing in Public

Don't get us wrong, we love it when guys, especially big macho meatheads, are caught in public crooning along with Alanis Morrissette's "Ironic," Fiona Apple's "Criminal," or any other song that looks weird coming from a throat with an Adam's apple. But let's be clear. We are laughing at you, not with you. Still, if you don't have a problem with that the humiliation, please go right ahead and keep belting out these girly tunes:

10. "Miss Chatelaine," k.d. lang
Some people can't explain why they become Miss Chatelaine, but really there's no excuse if you're a dude. So don't. Every time your eyes meet ours we'll die laughing. Trust us.

9. "December 1963 (Oh, What a Night)," Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons
It's easy to get lured into singing along with this one, it's a catchy classic. But be warned. Very few guys who can hit the high notes (think the BeeGees' "Staying Alive") without a pre-pubescent crackle in their voice. What's worse the theme of the song -- the loss of virginity -- seems like a natural for a man's man until you recite the line, as I recall it ended much too soon. They're talking about premature ejaculation, you dopes.
