When none of my metal friends are looking I bust out Weird Al Yankovic's DARE TO BE STUPID disc. I think I know the lyrics to his "Yoda" parody of the Kinks' "Lola" better than I know the lyrics to the original... if I'm driving in my car and "Lola" comes on the radio, I sing the "Yoda" version over it :)

Oh, and earlier today I had to bring my wife's car to the DMV for its annual inspection and my son asked me to put on her Gretchen Wilson "Here For The Party" CD while we waited in line for our turn. I really didn't want to at first but by the halfway point of the album I was thinking "Goddammit, this is actually pretty good!"

 

Oooo-kay, there goes what little was left of MY metal street cred... :)

Gretchen Wilson's pretty hot, so I justify it that way. "Um, yea! I don't like her MUSIC, I like her Boobs! YEAH, that's it!" :P

 

My wife's the country music fan in the house... she likes Big & Rich (who are frickin' hilarious by the way, I wouldn't mind seeing them live, they'd probably be a helluva lot of fun!), Garth Brooks (of course), Dixie Chicks, Shania, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, and on and on... I guess I'm better off having to listen to that than to be married to a hip-hop lover (SHUDDER) :blink:

If I have to choose one it would be SANDRA

 

I listen a lot to old 80es disco and have pretty good collection with all goodies from that golden time like Sandra, Belinda Carlisle, Kim Wilde, Scotch, Roxette, Limahl, Sabrina, etc. Good stuff

Kim Wilde! She was awesome! "Kids In America" was almost punk rock!

A few names have come up that I have a soft spot for:

 

Roxette and Belinda Carlisle. I don't own any Roxette and only have one Belinda Carlisle album, but it's cool stuff.

 

I have a massive soft spot for a song called 'If I let you go' by Westlife. Love that song! I also have Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavinge, Invertigo, Taxiride, Busted etc. albums in my collection that I'm not proud of and won't tell the world, but they're there. :)

>> 70's early am singles--usually one hit wonders <<

 

I love those cheesy songs and have been known to play those Time Life, etc CD's at glass shattering volume at times ... just because I know it annoys the hell out of everyone else.

 

And if anyone within arms reach dares to slag The Bee Gees or ABBA off .... uhhh. let's just say I ease up when their face is a very nice shade of purple.

:banana: Yeah, those 70's early am singles and those Time Life CDs!

 

Also love 80s new wave, classical guitar music (Segovia, Parkening), Praise & Worship, Kenny Loggins' Return to Pooh Corner and of course the BEATLES.

 

I have gotten over the Blues, as of late.

Punk is not a guilty pleasure for me... Ramones, Misfits, Anti-Nowhere League, the Pistols...it's all good. To me, punk rock is just metal played a little sloppier :)

And the lyrics are much more life affirming :lol: actually I do not feel guilty about any music I enjoy...I used to look down on Punk...of course then I was seriously into art rock...Yes, ELP etc and punk is the antithesis of that....but I have matured and appreciate the finer (shorter) songs that sound awesome, screaming the lyrics on the long solo roadtrip..or not solo....It is very hard to scream "Roundabout" with any hope of retaining any dignity :lol:

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
