Embarrassing, but I can't deny my enjoyment of the following tunes:
Feel Like Dancing, Leo Sayer
This song is from the very short period where high-pitched male voices were
in vogue. We can thank the Bee Gees for this trend.
I Just Want to Be Your Everything,
Andy Gibb (1.55 MB)
Speaking of the Bee Gees, here's one from the solo brother. You can tell from
this song, that he wasn't adopted.
Guilty, Barbra Streisand
and Barry Gibb (1.8 MB)
I liked this a long time ago, but only recently heard it in a Safeway and
it really had a good shopping beat. I never really have been into her, but
have to admit she has a great voice on this song, and combined with the genius
Gibb, this one is a winner for me, though it's embarrassing.
Love on the Rocks, Neil
Diamond (1.53 MB)
Neil Diamond holds the honor of being the artist with the most songs that
I am ashamed to like.
I Told 'Ya, David
My shame here is not really liking this song (though I do find it amusing),
as it is in owning the 12" single of it that I picked up for a quarter
at the Rasputin Records fire sale in Berkeley around 1995 or so. In case you
don't know, this guy was Bud Bundy on "Married with Children". I
especially like the part near the end where he goes from sweet talking to
Bound and Down (3MB) The
Legend (2MB), and The
Bandit (2.7MB) from Smokey and the Bandit and Texas
Bound and Flyin' (2MB), from Bandit 2. First one has nice CB intro and
is a variation of theme song East Bound and Down when they are heading to
Texas to pick up the Coors, hence the use of "west". The Legend
is a very relaxing tune the plays during the opening credits as the Bandit
powers up his Peterbuilt rig. The Bandit is the pre-makeout song as he and
Sally Field go into the woods. Texas Bound and Flyin' is just a great fast
song from the sequel which is a terrible movie.
She Believes In Me (1.7MB)
by Kenny Rogers brings both tears to my eyes and shame to my soul for liking
There's a Kind
of Hush All Over the World (1MB) by Herman's Hermits. Lenny sings a bit
of this song to his bowling ball in a Simpson's episode and it reactivated
a dormant enjoyment I had of this 60's shamefully catchy song.
Caught up in Rapture, Anita Baker. Let yourself
be taken away by the quiet
storm... A few Metallica songs are required listening after this song
to regain my masculinity.
I've decided this song tops the list for most shameful song I like: Air Supply, Making Love at of Nothing at All. Just typing that made me ashamed.
Owning this Dan Fogelberg album and enjoying many of the songs brings me great shame.
Heard this Nickelback song on some hold music while at work and googled the lyrics and found out what it was and downloaded. The album this song is from is lambasted by a reviewer on Allmusic that I have respect for when he says "Kroeger still
sounds as if he's singing with a hernia, he still writes shockingly stupid lines...Which means, despite all their newly developed relative nuances, Nickelback
remain unchanged: they're still unspeakably awful." I still like it, but with shame.
Off the Gord's Gold CD, I really like the Gordon Lightfoot song Beautiful, but I'm sort of embarassed. I guess there is a softer side to ms.com than is typically expressed.
Song they play at the end of Tootsie, It Might Be You. I think this equals my Air Supply shame.
Spanish Harlem by Ben E. King, just puts me in a good-feeling relaxed mood such that I forget any embarassment that maybe is deserved for enjoying such a song.
