Music You're Ashamed To Admit You Like

  1. Mar 7, 2006 #1
    Back when Thriller first came out I loved it. I thought the "Billie Jean" dance was terrific, and I must have watched the zombie video 30 times.

    In light of his later weirdness, I am careful not to mention this album as having been among my favorites. In fact, I will deny having just wrote it.

    I also have all of Swing Out Sister's albums.
    When I was in college it got out that one of my professors liked The Carpenters. He'd admitted it to someone. Karen Carpenter's voice did it for him. No one could make sense of it.
    Worst of all, I guess, is that I like a fair amount of Wagner. I consciously avoid listening to it very often, though, because of the nasty associations. I feel callous if I let myself enjoy it.

    What are you talking about, despite his wako behaivor, Jackson will forever be the king of pop. Thriller is STILL is a great song and music video.

    Well, let's go through my 2600+ song collection and see which artists I'll admit too, and which I'll deny to my grave:

    Nightmare of You
    My Chemical Romance


    Everything else (i'm not gonna type all of them out, its 30+ names).

    I'm surprised its so few actually.

    It's not clear to me why you mention this. I never said I liked Thriller.
  6. Mar 7, 2006 #5
    I don't even know what these are, groups or songs. I lack the perspective to know why they might be embarrassing.

    I thought you said you loved it?

    I've heard that Wagner's music is better than it sounds.

    Its the kind of normal trashy music normal people listen to. It actually makes me feel guilty to listen to it.

    Wagner is awesome. And then he sucked. Bonus points for getting it.
  12. Mar 7, 2006 #11
    I'm sure I never said any such thing.

    Yeah, no one who authentically appreciates it pays attention to how it sounds.
  13. Mar 7, 2006 #12
    So, what're you going to admit to that you can later deny?
  14. Mar 7, 2006 #13
    Put some of it on now, and photograph yourself. I want to see what you look like guilty.

    Are you coming on to me?

    I have no shame; but if I had had it, I would be ashamed of liking "Barbie Girl" by Aqua, AbbA and Village People. :smile:

    Oh, Thriller is a nice one!
  19. Mar 7, 2006 #18

    Then why are you hitting on me?
  20. Mar 7, 2006 #19
    I've never heard it, but I can tell from the title it would have to be wicked embarrassing to realize you like it.

    I also forgot to mention I think Dolly Parton has an exceptionally beautiful voice. I don't own any of her records but if she ever put out a double album entitled The Well-Tempered Brassiere I would by it.

    No, thats nihilist.

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Bach/boob jokes make me laugh.
  24. Mar 7, 2006 #23
    There are other Bach/boob jokes? Dolly's are the only two I know.
  25. Mar 7, 2006 #24

    What's the other Dolly one?
  26. Mar 7, 2006 #25
    I was refering to both her boobs.
