Re: Are you ashamed of what someone might find on your playlist?
I have an ABBA too ... Money Money Money. Zero guilt - great little pop song. I have Barry Manilow's Copacabana in my collection ... a fun Latin-y number.
I've always been a sucker for a good melody so I like plenty of pop. Until it was overplayed I thought Adele's Rolling in the Deep was the best thing to hit the Top of the Pops for a very long time. I like Maroon 5 a lot and can never work out why people dis them.
I am waaay into Supertramp, and band that seems to be routinely dismissed, I'm guessing because of the whiny vocals. I just enjoy the classy musicianship, high level creativity, excellent lyrics, strong melodies, killer production ...
Also in my collection - 10CC, George Michael, Robert Palmer, Anastacia, Promises, The Bangles, Cilla Black, Crash Test Dummies, Eurythmics, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Evermore, George Benson ... the list goes on ........
And let's not forget one of the coolest pop songs ever - Funkytown :)
