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

I have mixed feelings about that song. I worked with a guy who always sang along with it, and he wasn't the best singer in the world.

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

She's still my fav' Idol. I almost asked my niece to buy her greatest hits CD for me. I would be embarrassed to buy it since I'm "supposed to" listen to hard rock and heavy metal, not pop. My old school friends likely would laugh at some of my CDs,

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

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

Thanks. I share your guilty pleasures of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. Eh, a catchy tune is a catchy tune. I have CDs by both of those singers, which I keep hidden in a vault. :D

Also, Shakira songs.

I enjoy *looking* at her on "The Voice". She's the epitome of cute, and she has a genius IQ, to boot.

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:

I draw the line there too. I'll listen to some songs by those other singers, though. I'm not a big fan of rap, but I have three or four rap CDs. Most of them are compilations.

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).

Classical is beautiful, eternal food for the soul. Some of the pieces can transport you to a place that transcends the troubles and worries of the moment. A few songs can make you weep. On the other hand, some pieces can put you to sleep.

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.

I likely would enjoy your playlist, as long as Toni Basil's "Mickey" isn't on it. That's an embarrassing song that I *don't* like.

Ancient embarrassment - I'm not sure whether admitting to enjoying Classical Music is embarrassing, but I do enjoy listening to a good symphony (as long as it isn't that electronically piped crud they play while you're on hold with the bank!

Not-so-ancient-but-still-old embarrassment - I admit to the golden oldies of the 50's and 60's being enjoyable.  The Monkees, Buddy Holly, Beach Boys, The Carpenters, that kind of thing.

Modern embarrassment - if you've seen my post in the "what bands have you seen" thread, you'll note that I've been to the likes of Fear Factory, Cradle of Filth, Prodigy, and Infected Mushroom.  It is for this reason that I somewhat embarrassingly state that I am a hardcore fan of the artist named Jewel.

Seasonal embarrassment - it's not cool to admit to enjoying Christmas carols, but Christmas is my favourite holiday of the year primarily because we get to listen to Christmas carols and sing along to them.

I like listening to Rebecca Black's song Friday. I know a lot of people hate it,but I find the beat catchy.

The point above of whether loving Classical music should be embarrassing is interesting.  I just find that I like it naturally and don't like most of the stuff of later times (except the stuff that gets labeled "classical.")  The thing I dislike the most is music that goes "thump, thump, thump, including the efforts to popularized classical music).  Still, I like marches -- I think because the thumping is not so tiresome.

Really early classical music (prior to, say, Handel), kinda leaves me behind too, and I hate it when they try to be so accurate and use the antique, harsh-sounding instruments.  I like operatic music, but only in excerpts, not to sit through them.

Almost no one in Vietnam understands my taste, and they think me pretentious (no doubt a bit true).  They all like what is called "bubble-gum" music -- very simple melodies about love and romance and flowers and spring and such things, and they all admit that it is like bubble gum, but don't see anything wrong with that.

I don't know how embarrassing it is, but I also like classical music, which is my favorite kind of music. I also like blues,  jazz, big band and some opera arias, early jazz (Louie Armstrong, King Oliver), Scott Joplin, ethnic folk music... I'm not embarrassed at all about all this.

I also like some silly songs that would probably embarrass some of the younger folk. I think most popular music of the last ten or so (maybe twenty) years is pretty embarrassing.

It is not an embarrassment to like this song, for instance. (If Youtube will let it play.)
