Default Are you ashamed of what someone might find on your playlist?

We all think that we have "good taste" in music, however, is any of you who have a band(s) or artist(s) within your playlist in your media player or i-pod that you're not very proud to have added to your computer, and that you would feel a bit ashamed if someone, especially musicians friends who are browsing your playlist and say thing like "hey guys, look who is he's listening to, haha..."

I have such a band on my playlist... What about you?

I sorta' like Abba.....during my audition they called out "Dancing Queen" and we dutifully played it.

I think everyone trying to work should be mindful of what hit songs are out there, because chances are, you'll get asked to play them. And if you can't, they'll just go to the next person who does, taking you out of the loop of possible gig-dom.

So for that reason I wouldn't be ashamed of what was on my iPod. I call it "defensive listening". Hell, I never thought I'd ever do a recording of the ol' Julie London/Dean Martin song, Sway. I'm glad I knew about it before asked to do work on it.

Nickelback. For some reason everybody seems to hate Nickelback and I have no idea why.

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 :)

Default Re: Are you ashamed of what someone might find on your playlist?

there is no music that i don't like or that i'm ashamed of having on my playlist.

there are however songs that i don't feel like getting sh*t over from small minded people who's worlds are quite small and can't fathom anything outside of their little boxes.

yes i like the Spice Girls. "Wanna Be", "Saturday Night Divas", "Spice Up Your Life" and the video in the desert one...I'm giving you everything - whatever the name of that one is.

if anyone knows Mel B, tell her i said she's purty. and i love her Yorkshire accent.

Carpenters ? check
Manilow ? check
Debbie Gibson ? check

Carpenters "Goodbye To Love" contains one of the best guitar solos ever recorded. it's a good as the "Bohemian Rhapsody" solo or any other you can think of "Stairway To Heaven".
i love Debbie Gibson so much, i had a block inlaid into the fretboard of my Custom guitar that reads "Anything Is Possible".

I still have the original 45 rpm record somewhere in the attic from Lipp Inc

That Aussie band did a good cover I think, but I couldn't use your link, not allowed where I live, so I listened to this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhhO5Jqt7jY , it's the same, yes?

Can't stand the dark haired woman in the group - she's so annoyingly bouncy and try-hard. If I had my way she'd be sold off for scientific experiments!

That's annoying too - the darn lawyers are everywhere.

How about this for a confession? I really enjoy Wham!'s Careless Whisper *gasp*

From a jazz POV I confess to being a fan of Wynton Marsalis (his music, not his conservative views). I especially love his drummer, Herlin Riley ...this solo is one of my favourite ones ever, the closest thing I've heard to Papa Jo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFvgCtomkqE

If liking Wynton is wrong - I don't want to be right. Herlin is just a beautiful player. I've been fortunate to see him with Wynton more times than I can count. Wynton is one of my favorites.

To the topic at large - people who know me would anticipate anything they'd fine in my library.

My Library spans 1920's to today. It includes Country, Classical, Funk, R&B, all eras of Jazz, Folk, Bluegrass, Rock from Fats Domino to Foo Fighters with a heavy dose of 70's and 80's, Instrumental Hawaiian Guitar, Vocals (Dean Martin, Sinatra, and so many of that style)... Probably so much more I can't even begin to recall. I love it all....

That is something I should have on my playlist, Herlin Riley's solo is both unconventional and insipring, a real little gem Polly, you should be proud to have it on your playlist :)

Yes, you need to drop these monstrosities! Have you no pride, man?? (the inflection for "man" is old style, not 60s hipspeak "man")

Default Re: Are you ashamed of what someone might find on your playlist?

As to the thread question: mostly no, sometimes yes.

ABBA: My parents were listening to them a lot when I was 6-8 years old so I was exposed to them, too. After that haven't been listening ABBA but I don't see anything wrong in their music. I don't have to get all their albums or something. In fact they are high experts on how to write top 10 and no.1 hits - I read somewhere that they did some study on various no.1 hits and analysed what all/many songs had in common. ABBA wasn't just music from the heart (maybe it wasn't from the heart at all), it was clearly a business, and a highly successful one as we know. Thinking about it, ABBA must have been the first band which influenced me. On a subconscious level. (No, it wasn't Iron Maiden and Metallica - that was much later).

Well 'untypical' stuff/music I can listen to and which I must admit that I like it is e.g (in reverse chronological order - trying to remember):

Cascada - "Fever"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUVzVBEWjgw

Stumbling across songs like that is what happens to me every 2 or so years. I'm trying hard to avoid listening to music on the TV, I dn't isten to any radio (sorry Benny Greb, but I don't take "Listen to the radio" too seriously, haha). And then, even "that" music has something to offer - not deep substance, but at least clever arrangement, often times surprising elements and frankly, a bunch of cool idead/innovations. E.g. that Cascada song (to my ears) has surprising tonality changes from minor to major which do sound cool. Also the vocals are phrased effectively and work (don't know how hard they've been polished in the studio, by autotune or whatever though).

Sharyhan Osman - "I Feel The Nile"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9x_EEmBOeQ
She made it into the final 10 vocalists of a German TV show talent search. The song arrangement was done by the Heavytones, that show's band. So there's still some potential to make the arrangement/song even better "next time".

Andre 3000's "Hey Ya" is another example (haven't found a YT link to the official version which isn't blocked). I just liked that song (and video) from the moment when I first saw it. I can't find anything about it which I don't find cool. Doesn't mean I have to go and get their album or listen to one more of their songs, but those songs mentioned are ok to me.

There were some more dancefloor/soft techno tunes around 1990 which I liked, but I don't really remember the titles. I liked listening to Haddaway for some time but in the end I don't really miss it from today's perspective.

Haddaway - "What Is Love"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jy9uMi9reBI

The Prodigy - "Firestarter" (so-so quality, but with the orig. video)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDTTVbCOInw
Maybe the most radical/extreme tune from my "odd music/what I'm usually not listening to" category. That Prodigy music and video came across quite innovative/fresh to me. That short melody mixing up major and minor tonality is just cool. Why don't I come up with something like that? Haha.

Part of what I'm listening to is original material. Stuff I'm never ashamed of (except I'm listening to orig. ideas created some 15 years or more ago - that stuff wasn't mature enough yet).

7. mmmbop
9. We Are the World
10. Loving You (Minnie Riperton version)
11. Reunited (Peaches and Herb)

Just working on this set list is getting me ready to rock and roll!

Thanks for the link, but that one is blocked for watchers from Germany. (I'm embarrassed I still haven't checked out how to watch blocked videos. GEMA (representing copyrights in Germany) are a PITA!) Never heard of Beverley before. Watching "Promise me" instead right now... You're right, there's some similarity!

The only ABBA I have is a cover of "Dancing Queen" by Paul Gilbert on "Acoustic Samurai".

I have some Orianthi on my phone... that's probably as bad as it gets.

Unless you count Paula Cole. I have two of her CDs.

No.

If you don't like what I like, well, it's not my fault you have no taste.

I have no time for Jr High school baloney where someone tries to make me feel ashamed for liking this or that.

http://www.last.fm/user/Chaos2092

Literally ashamed? Nah... I don't think anyone here would literally be ashamed though, so in line with the topic: I embrace my love for a lot of Katy Perry's mindless pop garbage because that's precisely what it is, catchy, provocative fun music to play driving with friends and all of that, and it doesn't try to be anything else.

There's plenty of embarrassing songs here and there I could probably name that I have love/hate relationships because of inside jokes and such (Take On Me, In the Air Tonight, the list could go on) and it definitely juxtaposes my typical listening habits and could get some "HAHA, you're listening to WHAT?" reactions.

Are you brave enough to let me see your peacock?

Don't worry, it's on my computer. I have 933 MB of Led Zeppelin, 6 MB of which is Moby Dick.

Devo are great. Totally off the wall personalities.

I'm not sure I have any regular music that I'm ashamed of. I think the closest it gets is System of a Down but I think they're great.

I will admit to having a very small soft spot for some of the Spice Girls numbers but I was about seven or eight the first time around so I think it's forgivable!

ABBA was my ex-wife's favorite band along with Modern Talking (uggghh!).

I do like ABBA. I have their Number One's album and SuperTrouper. No Modern Talking though, now that I would be ashamed of for sure.

Can't stand the dark haired woman in the group - she's so annoyingly bouncy and try-hard. If I had my way she'd be sold off for scientific experiments!
