Default Your Shameful Music

We all have em'. Those bands or musicians that we listen to in the confidence of our own home, cause we are to embarrassed to tell people we listen to them. Who's yours?

I actually bought on iTunes Britney's 'Toxic', and Gerri Halliwell's 'These boots are made for walkin''....

But everything else I listen to is super cool!

Whatever that means. ;)

We all have a choice to listen to music, we all listen to different types, thats why music is incredible.

There's nothing I listen to that I'm actually ashamed of, but a lot of people find it funny/strange that t.A.T.u. is one of my favourite bands.

...It might be time to change my avatar.

Great topic! I was actually thinking of starting a thread like this. Great minds and all...

It's not really a guilty pleasure because I'm not shy about it but I really dig on Disco. There's just something about that relentless driving beat...

My girlfriend is into a lot of electronica and dance music and I have a gay friend that changes my radio stations while he's in the car so I listen to more Lady Gaga than anyone should. It's starting to grow on me.

It's more shameless than shameful: Rob Zombie, GWAR, The Chemical Brothers, Village People, Poison, Dead Kennedys, Rob Halford (solo career).

Interesting replies! I think because of my age (in high school), having my cell phone ringer as "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees counts as shameful. But I really dig anything David Foster produced. .. Yes Celine Dion as well. Lol

The 'Ting Tings' and 'The Sundays' maybe.

One of my favorite songs is Bryan Ferry's "Slave to Love", that always
gets me some strange looks.

You could call the Final Fantasy VII soundtrack geeky...

...except, the Voices of the Lifestream covers are unbelievably amazing. Some fantastic drumming on some of them, too.

No "guilty pleasures" here.

Here's my spiel for "guilty pleasure" threads, starting off with a couple quoted passages:

Quote:
From Wikipedia (the emphases are mine): "In psychology and ordinary language, guilt is an affective state in which one experiences conflict at having done something that one believes one should not have done . . . Sigmund Freud described this as the result of a struggle between the ego and the superego parental imprinting . . . Some thinkers have theorized that guilt is used as a tool of social control. Since guilty people feel they are undeserving, they are less likely to assert their rights and prerogatives . . . As with any other emotion, guilt can be manipulated to control or influence others . . . Guilt can also be remedied through cognition, the understanding that the source of the guilty feelings was illogical or irrelevant."

From http://www.coping.org/growth/guilt.htm: "Guilt is . . . Feeling of regret for your real or imagined misdeeds, both past and present . . . Feeling of obligation for not pleasing, not helping, or not placating another . . . Driving force or mask behind which irrational beliefs hide.

"People can and sometimes will . . . Make you believe they will suffer greatly if you do not respond positively to their request(s) . . . Call on your guilt to respond to their requests, even when it means violating your rights . . . Accuse you of misdeeds, words, or actions to arouse your sense of guilt and make you believe you are the one with a problem . . . Reinforce your negative self-perceptions, encouraging you to be guilt ridden and self-judgmental for their benefit . . . Build a case with moral absolutes to convince you of the ``right way'' to do things, avoiding that negative feeling of guilt for themselves . . . Set up situations for you in which you will believe your alternatives are limited to that which results in the least sense of guilt."
You shouldn't feel guilty about listening to any music. Your taste is fine just as it is. Don't worry about whether it doesn't match others' tastes. If they have a problem with you having different taste it's their problem, not yours. Like whatever music you like and be proud of the fact that you like it.

I mainly listen to metal so I get weird looks when Bjork/Sugarcubes comes on, or Dave Matthews (although, imo, DMB has a lot of metal-like qualities in quite a few songs like Two Step, Warehouse, Watchtower, and most of Before These Crowded Streets).

Hmm...

Not really shameful, but out-of-the-ordinary stuff:

All American Rejects
Breaking Benjamin
Dave Matthews Band
Earth Wind and Fire
The Fifth Dimension
Kristian Digeridoo's Ensemble(Hats off to my people from Oz)
O-ZONE
Owl City
Ronald Jenkees
Steely Dan
Third Eye Blind
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Yoshida Brothers(Shamisen rock)

Everything else is either System Of A Down or Slipknot. And some others.

Steel, Steely Dan has no place on a shameful music thread, even prefaced with "Not really shameful" ...

I have dome daggy old instrumentals in my collection ... Baby Elephant Walk, Telstar, Sacha ...

I also have:

ABBA's Money Money Money

Anastacia's I'm Outta Love

The Bangles's Walk Like an Egyptian

Barry Manilow - Copacabana

Bette Midler - You Don't Own Me

Billy Joel - Zanzibar (Liberty's drumming is killer)

Brian Ferry - Let's Stick Together

Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Relax

George Michael - Faith

The Carpenters - various songs

Spandau Ballet - Chant No 1

The Babys - Isn't It Time

Wham - Careless Whisper

These songs go nicely with my almost complete collection of King Crimson (including Giles Giles & Fripp and unreleased live performances before their debut album) ... plus heaps of Captain Beefheart, Uncle Frank, Henry Cow ...

Ha! I always thought of him as uncool and a bit twee (not including Zanzibar and Big Shot). Steely Dan are one of those bands that a lot of musos salivate over. Same with Earth Wind and Fire :)

I love Earth, Wind & Fire. In fact, I saw somewhere they were gonna rerun Soul Train.

I like all of this music and I'll admit it if someone asks (Aside from Lady Gaga, I like her as an artist and what she's doing, but I can't get into her music.), but I'd never preemptively tell someone.

Alanis Morrisette, Blink 182, Brand New, The Star Wars soundtracks, Lady Gaga, Marvin Gaye, Paramore, Regina Spektor, Metric, Tegan & Sara, and The 5,6,7,8's.

Everyone knows me a strict prog-metal fanboy...but, I do like some indie bands like Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, and the Hush Now (local). I also have a My Chemical Romance song that I like, it's an older one.
