Right, I know everyone has one...a song that you know you shouldn't like, a song by all rights you should loathe, but you can't help tapping your foot to the beat and mouthing the words. Come one, tell us what it is...

Mine is...well, I'm 6'2", black, built like a brick outhouse and my usual haunt is my clubs on rock night. And yet...my secret musical pleasure and shame is "Take On Me" by A-Ha

The shame! The shame of it all!

I am a complete dork. I'm also a Japanophile, a "kiddie" gamer (Gamecube represent, yo), and all those sorts of things.

I like "Somewhere I Belong" by Linkin Park. I also enjoy most of Eminem's 'songs', and I don't know why! :'(

Whats wrong with "Somewhere I Belong"? It's a good song!

Oh yeah, and for some reason, I can't ever get "Breakfest at Tiffany's" out of my head once someone mentions it.

Ah... Dammit. THere it goes.

Yes, I know it's a good song. But it's by a band I absolutely detest, so I'm not sure why I like it...

Lykan
2006-07-24, 06:00 AM
Is this a bad time to mention that it's my favourite band?

I guess the screaming bit isn't as harsh as some other songs, and it has a message most people can relate to?

Yuki Akuma
2006-07-24, 06:02 AM
Actually, I think it's because it would make a good character image song for a roleplaying character. Yeah... ;D

Of all of their songs this is by far the worst. Yet I like it a great deal. Take that as you will.

Hair Metal!
*Insert guitar going "meedly meedly meedly meeeeeee!" and the smell of hair spray.*

Mötley Crüe (Kickstart My Heart), Van Halen (Jump!), Twisted Sister* (I Wanna Rock), Survivor (Eye of The Tiger), oh and Aerosmith (Dude Looks Like A Lady).
And of course I would have to mention Guns n' Roses because of Axl's bike shorts alone, however, when coupled with with wearing a bandanna and a cap (why one hat when you can wear two?) well, then you know you've got something special.
I know that not all of this stuff technically qualifies for Hair Metal as such, but it's all in the same gloriously bad vein...
Come to think about it, It's no secret shame, I just know that it's bad music and *technically* should be ashamed. ;D

*Gains (loses?) extra points for being especially bad.

Dschinghis Khan, Moskau. Its incredibly catchy... they even did it in different languages.

Russian (original by the Khans): Moskau! Moskau!
Finnish or Sweedish, not sure which: Volga! Volga!
Korean: (k)aja! (k)aja!

Your friends aren't nearly rad enough! I, too, am a big 80s fan.

I'm not ashamed to listen to anything - and I like almost everything. (I don't like really twangy country music, but I listen to everything else from showtunes to hardcore rap to classical pieces to - hey, Headbanger's Ball anyone?) My preference is for late-70s and 80s pop and rock.

Anyway, if there's anything I listen to that's most "against type" - like if you saw me with my iPod you would never guess I was listening to it...I dunno, probably the best of Death Row Records stuff. *

"Take On Me" by A-Ha

Okay, I just got back to the boards from watching the music video of that song. This is the first thread I clicked on.

That's messed up!

Anyway, my secret musical shame is...I don't know. I kind of like some annoying songs, but that fades after the first 10 times listening to them

My secret musical shame is the song "Aryan Man Awake," by the neo-Nazi singing duo, Prussian Blue.

Yes, there is a story here.

See, it all began in my Contemporary Problems class. We got Newsweek every week, and we'd discuss things from it. Anyway, one week there was this little sidebar thingy about Prussian Blue, with example lyrics. One of my classmates decided to check the song out, out of morbid curiosity. A few days later she came in and played the song for the class.

It was complete trash. Leaving aside the message of the song, Prussian Blue can't sing, can't play guitar, they definitely can't do both at the same time, and the only reason I could understand the lyrics of the chorus was because they were right there in Newsweek.

Regardless of these things, the tune is rather catchy, and I sometimes find myself humming it. At which point I say ARRRRRRRRGH! and exorcise it with the Imperial March.

Hm. I wouldn't say there's many songs I like that I'm not 'supposed' to, but I listen to the Grateful Dead a lot, when only three people I know have ever heard of the Grateful Dead...

Flabbicus

My secret musical shame would have to be... Derek and The Dominos, Matchbox Twenty, Steely Dan, The Replacements, and Tom Petty.

In total defiance of the view many have that I am a dark-minded, broody, and all around morbid evil son of a pessimist, I love the small world song from the ride at Disneyland. Go figure.

2006-07-24, 08:01 PM
Uhh... that's not a Disney original.

Well, see, I have this thing where if someone starts singing Come Sail Away, you know, by the Styx, I can't do anything until it ends. You guys know how that is?

^Not actually true.

My secret shame of songs: *sigh* I Want It That Way, by the Backstreet Boys.

Mine is "Gangster Paradise" by Coolio.

It is the only rap song that I could listen to more than twice in a row.

2006-07-24, 08:16 PM
I often discover, far too late, when I'm doing something mind-numbing like cleaning up or cooking or whatever, that I've been singing Elton John's Crocodile Rock very loudly. And just the "laaaa la la la la laaaa" bit, as the rest is clearly far too complicated. And I often discover this by having someone else point it out to me.

So perhaps less of the secret there, but by god a helluva lot more of the shame.

Yes, it was a real long time ago, back in the days of cassets.

2006-07-24, 10:54 PM
Which one was Jethro? ;D jk

My number one shame is actually learning to Klown. Pretty foolish when I think about it. Oh well. Slap that on the shelf with my MJ moves and Helicopter.

Music wise I am ashamed to know all the words to Get Low. Dirty version even. I'm far to white and I respect women... 'cept for jokes... if they're funny.

Eric clapton is a god, so was Jimmy Page. Please do not diss the Yardbirds. Jethro Tull has a few cool songs. Grateful Dead I could never get into as Jer Bear died before I had a chance to see them live.

For me, movie soundtracks, classical, and video game music mixed with electronica. I have also found myself listening to Indie Rock and liking it. Grr

Check out Vanessa Mae a classically trained violinist frequently mixed with electronica. Classical Gas(on the violin at that)+techno+reggae=nothing you have ever heard before. She also has a unique rendition of Can-Can.

I am not ashamed of any of the music that I like, although others might be embarrassed on my behalf if they knew I know and love every note and lyric of The Sound of Music soundtrack (BROADWAY version, not the movie).

I am vicariously embarrassed that my husband likes "MmmmBop" and is unashamed of it.

Duran Duran. I typically hate bands that rely on synthesizers, but I really like this band.

2006-07-26, 04:51 AM
I think the music I am closest to being shameful over, is some techno where some people have added voices from StarCraft - thus making it acceptable to my ears...

And I have to say to Jacksquat3; Jethro Tull is an awesome band! ;D
Lots of great songs ^^

Probably the ones that would qualify for me would be the 3-4 country songs in my collections :P Mostly seem to be Big & Rich songs, if that means anything...

Oh, and I do sometimes feel a bit embarassed when I get strange looks from people because I have jpop or jrock on while at a stoplight and the windows down.

I was going to own up to "Djingis Khan" (Swedish ((Vikingarna)), with German variant ((?)) ) as well, but I don't remember that bit anywhere in the song. It doesn't seem to be on the playlist right now, so I can't check it either.

Nonetheless, Jacksquat won the thread already with Tiny Tim, which has now lodged "Tiptoe through the Tulips", as played on Laugh-In, at the top of my brain, thank you so much!

You should be ashamed that you consider liking the Beatles to be shameful. Everyone likes the Beatles. The Beatles are like pie, but less tasty.

Krytha
2006-07-27, 11:50 AM
Apparently not everyone likes pie (crazy people) - but I only like a select number of Beatles songs.

Well for starters: The title translates to "Marry me"...

And then it continues about a someone who's love died. ...and then visits the grave...
...and then starts to dig up the grave...
...and then starts to kiss the body...
...and then takes the crumbling body away...

Actually I just read the lyrics to translate them to you. Sounds pretty gross.

Not to mention that "Helter Skelter" is regarded by many to be the first metal song ever.

For me it's "She's Always A Woman" by Billy Joel. I also like "Piano Man," but so do a lot of people from my class.

And some metal band needs to do a full-out headbanging screaming version of Maxwell's Silver Hammer. Done right, it could be better than Iron Man.

I mostly listen to heavy metal and alternative, so I guess I'd have to say my 'muscial shame' is the Spice Girls. I have both of their CDs, and I like almost all of the songs. I know, I suck, but I can't help it! *cries* You should see the look on my friend's faces when we're in the car and my Distubed CD finishes and the CD changer rotates to the next CD and the Spice Girls start playing. I almost got myself killed one day laughing so hard at the look on my best friend's face.

"My humps," by Black Eyed Peas. I hate, hate, hate that song. I get no pleasure out of it, only pain. And yet, as I'm flipping past it, it runs through my head, and I...I just can't help it... The foot taps and the lyrics are mouthed... Ugh. It's a song to make shock therapy worthwhile.

Now, if you're talking about songs that I strangely derive pleasure from, then...Hm. Motion City Soundtrack's "Everything is Alright." The lead singer sounds like Kermit, and yet...it's a great song.

My collection includes Beatles, Metallica, Radiohead, Bach, Indigo Girls, Ella Fitgerald, Nirvana, Garbage, Elvis Costello, Damien Rice, Smashing Pumpkins, Sondheim soundtracks, Janis Joplin, the Cranberries, the Aquabats, and much, much more.

That being said... sometimes I feel mildly ashamed for liking the stuff I used to listen to in middle school. Paula Abdul. Ace of Base. Vanessa Williams. That kind of stuff.

But specific shameful guilty-pleasure songs:
Amish Paradise - Weird Al
Baby One More Time - Britney Spears
and worst of all - by far - that stupid Titanic song Celiene Dion did.

oooh...good question. I'm gonna say the theme tune for Pucca. IT'S SO COOL!!! But incredibly childish.

Heh, Weird Al makes rap good. My geeky pleasure would be "All About the Pentiums."

And I love "Charlene (I'm Right Behind You)" by Stephen Colbert. (Search YouTube for it.) It's the creepiest song ever, even more than Every Breath You Take, but it's hilarious.

I like the Black Eyed Peas.
No seriously.
I love the Black Eyed Peas.

My musical shame would be that I hardly listen to music at all. When I say that to people, they just look strangely at me.
It's not that I don't like music, I just don't bother listening to it.

How do you survive without music?

Just fine.
I bet that if you were looking at me when you said that, it would have been in a very strange way.

I used to be the same way, then I got into the Beach Boys.

Then the Beatles. Then Relient K, Switchfoot, Led Zeppelin, Green Day, Pink Floyd, Jimmy Eat World, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, George Harrison, Jimi Hendrix...

It most certainly would. :P

Maybe that's because I've been singing, listening to and playing music since I can remember. As a matter of fact, my friends are a very music-oriented bunch, every single one of them plays an instrument to some degree (more than half of them being drummers).

Not that there's anything wrong with not being interested in music. I just think that people who aren't are missing out on so much.

Alright, I saw the thread, and the initial posts and went -

"Feh, I deny you. I have no guilt in my musical delight. I like music that might be cheesy, or silly, or just plain bad, at times, but I do not hold guilt to it. I laugh at your insignificance!"

That was, of course, until Saturday, when I caught myself singing along with Portishead.

You win.

I prefer most of the popular rock/near metal music, with late 70's and 80's rock being a very close second.
But my secret musical shame is anything by Destiny's Child. I cannot help how good their music is. (No I am not just saying this becuase Beyonce is attractive)

I have 2 guilty pleasure songs/bands.

First, is that I LOOOOVE Fall Out Boy much to the dismay of my super anti-emo freind, and even I don't like the IMAGE of Fall Out Boy... But dammit if I can get through the day without getting at least SOME part of their songs in my head.

Other than that, I also love "Every time We Touch" by Cascada. Its insanly girl-y techno that even talks about about *gasp* love and not just sex! Something rare on many men's music selection... Just kidding guys. But really. Its a damn girly song and I rave every time I hear it.

P.S. Im fat. You don't wanna see me rave.

Took the words right out of my mouth. I'm the same exact way, even down to everyone else's reactions. ::)

I love Meat Loaf. Everything he did with Jim Steinman.

My husband groans and moans when I listen to his songs. What else can I say? I love Steinman's rock. It makes me want to be a bad girl.
