Hadn't heard of them before but I just checked them out on youtube. Great band and great song. Very catchy.

None. I'm proud to admit every song I like, right down to the magnificent 'Everytime' by Britney Spears, or the even more magnificent 'Incomplete' by the Backstreet Boys (as well as their 'I just want you to know' tune). 

But yeah, point is I like a lot of stuff that may embarrass others. Not I. 

Fact, actually. I'd be far more ashamed to admit I like a christian rock/metal song than a girly pop song. Eg. I'd openly admit I like a Britney Spears song before admitting I like 'Reason for the season' by Stryper. ;)

I'm with Geoff. My first love is of course, AOR/Hard Rock/Heavy Metal and that's why all of us are here, but there are many, many songs that I love that would be considered taboo on this site. Like the G man, I'm not embarrassed. I'm quite happy to own them all. I heard this one a couple of days ago, so....Exhibit A.

This immediately comes to mind

Just songs or bands in general? As a teenager was a huge fan of Backstreet Boys and a few other boy bands.

I'm not embarrassed by any of my musical tastes. Quite the opposite, actually. I'm the asshole who blasts his music on the job site, sun up to sun down.

I remember I used to be embarassed to admit i liked ABBA, but then I was embarassed to admit to liking anything when I was a teenager. Took me a while to admit to loving the tracks from Jesus Christ Superstar too for some reason but they're actually awesome some of them

Yeah I thought of a song I won't really admit to, especially to my daughter who loves him (and because I regularly ridicule him)

But I like that Ed Sheeran song where he sings to song girl

    • Could be. I think they have better distribution in Europe.
    • Trace - Line Of Fire Passion Play - Time Stands Still Mike + The Mechanics - The Singles 1985 - 2014 (2 CD) Frameshift - An Absence Of Empathy Lion´s Share - Dark Hours + 1 Platens - Between Two Horizons No Sweat - Tear Down The Walls (CD-single) Texas - Tired Of Being Alone Acoustic EP
    • Then later by AOR Heaven also I think? 
    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
    • Ha true..his songs are pretty much one dimensional but...two different songs so the melodies do vary(though very slightly) and the second one happens to sound better to these ears.
