Are there any artists or songs that you're afraid to admit that you like, or do you like any "embarrassing" genres of music? As a thirty-something guy who's relegated to the hard rock ghetto, I sometimes listen to our local Top Forty station that's aimed at a younger demographic. It's evidently not cool to like Coldplay, but they're one of my fav' artists, along with the "uncool" Billy Joel. Finally, I love "MacArthur Park" :blush: , which is included on most lists of the worst songs of all time.

There is one reality with billions of versions.

Abba is a groovy kind of music and lyrics I always enjoy.. But thanks to some movies It's become connected with the gay or transvestite community.. as a result liking it isn't admitted by many these days by people who're not Gay or Transvestites.

Safety Dance by Men Without Hats. It's just so upbeat.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I can sing along with Kelly Clarkson like there's no tomorrow.
Which would be fine, if I were a female.

Whoa Whoa Whoa...  There is nothing "uncool" about Billy Joel. lol

I also like a few Katy Perry songs, and some Lady Gaga songs.

Geology shows that fossils are of different ages. Paleontology shows a fossil sequence, the list of species represented changes through time. Taxonomy shows biological relationships among species. Evolution is the explanation that threads it all together. Creationism is the practice of squeezing one's eyes shut and wailing "Does not!" ~Author Unknown

I was going to say Walk Away by Kelly Clarkson. Aw, who cares if anyone knows it, that song is aweso.. I mean, it's okay, or whatever... if there's nothing else to listen to... in a world.

Also, Shakira songs.

I think we have way too much music snobbery these days..  It's all good, I reckon.. well, almost..  even some hiphop and rap (but not too much..) :D

And OK, I might not buy their albums, but I'll still tap a foot to Billy Ray Cyrus or Michael Bolton at their chintziest, even Celine Dion...

But I think I'll hypocritically draw the line at Bieber... :td:

All my posts about Apollo are dedicated to the memory of MID - who knew, lived and was an integral part of, Apollo.

"Like the JFK assassination conspiracy theories, the UFO issue probably will not go away soon, no matter what the CIA does or says. The belief that we are not alone in the universe is too emotionally appealing and the distrust of our government is too pervasive to make the issue amenable to traditional scientific studies or rational explanation and evidence." - Gerald K Haines

Sousa marches and Strauss waltzes.  Moderns think it smaltzy, and the real classical music buffs think nothing good was written after Mozart (some don't even credit Bach).

I've got a Yotube playlist of all my 80's favourites, most of which, no doubt, would appear on some people's list of Embarrassing music.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Their collection is in my collection, collecting dust with the rest of my collection. "The Winner Takes It All" is one of my fav' songs by any artist, but it's not the best song to repeatedly listen to after a breakup.
