Songs you really like, but would never admit to in public

Waterloo

Love that bass line progression in it. You can hear it well with a good set of earbuds. The song won the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest and launched ABBA into the big time.

I tend to think Rogers and Hart but this was based on a class I took on American popular music in the 1970’s and haven’t got any new info since then. For example I’d take Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered over Do-re-mi and the only thing that makes My Favorite Things any good is John Coltrane having done it.

“Good Morning Judge” was off the “Deceptive Bends” album.

“I’m not in love” was off “The Original Soundtrack” album

Yes, I’m a 10CC freak.

The Tsarist era Russian National Anthem was good too.

Good music, is good music.

When I was a kid, my Mom used to crank Judy Collins and Richard Harris albums was she was doing housework. Both sides now has been burned in my brain ever since... and I still like it for some strange reason reason.

Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner by Warren Zevon

Why be ashamed of that? That entire album is among one of my favorites & am not ashamed to say so.

At one time there were some of those, now I just have no freakin’ shame. ;’)

In the past, my guilty pleasures (as they’re usually termed) were a tune here and there by bands I can’t stand.

A song which sucks but which I always crank — “Chevy Van”. That song sucks so hard, the entire Electrolux factory moved a thousand miles.

LOL!!! I’ve never heard that version before, but after watching Barney and Baby Bop as much as I did for the first 5 years of my sons life, it would have made the song much more bearable. ;-)

Oh, yeah....that secret little playlist on the iPod that doesn't get played at public gatherings. ;-)

When I'm not listening to some Judas Priest, Dean Martin or The Scorpians I kinda like to here ... mmmble mmmble.

Ok, Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart! There I said it! Are you happy?

Collins and Baez together on Diamonds and Rust in 2009.

A little off key in a spot or two, but awesome tune nevertheless. How can such beautiful musicians be so politically ignorant?

Original version was Simon and Garfunkel, but I like the Bangles version as well.

Right after graduating from high school in 1978, I buggered off for a three-week trip to England; while I was there, 9 of the 10 top-ten songs on BBC 1 radio were from "Grease" (title song, "Hopelessly Devoted to You", "Sandy", "You're The One That I Want", so on and so on). It was like a religion over there.

The guiltiest pleasures on my Creative Zen are probably this and this.

No, I’m not kidding either. My wife almost divorced me over him when I discovered his music. I truly do celebrate his entire collection.
