Hey, gang -- Lots of good music discussion as we all wait for training camp to roll around, so I'd like to pick up an idea from another thread. What are the "guilty pleasures" in your CD library or MP3 player? You know, the groups or songs that you really like but don't confess in public. We've all got some skeletons (heh) hidden away, so come on: what are yours?

These days I listen mostly to metal of various kinds, EBM/industrial music from Europe, and goth rock or goth electronica, but my guilty pleasures include the Spice Girls, John Hartford, and Barry Manilow.

Who's next...?

Eminem... just about every album in my MP3 player. That and a little DMX. I guess I'm pretty diverse. DMX and Eminem followed by Randy Travis, George Strait, and BlackHawk, mixed in with all things Metallica, some Jimmy Buffet, and a lot of today's mainstream/top 40 type music.

I also like Ricky Martin's "Livin' la Vida Loca".

"Build Me Up Buttercup" by The Foundations is a song that always puts me in a good mood.

Mostly Old School and 80's (the 70's overall sucked, except early 70's). Not a CD but I still have the first album (LP) I bought, the Beach Boys Surfin USA. Cannot stomach most country but do have a Trisha Yearwood burnt CD for How Will I live without you and Lee Greenwoods Proud to be an American.

Theyre not in my CD player (and likely wont be), but I do like these to some degree:

Early Garth Brooks.

I can appreciate lots of different pop music because the production is so intelligent.

Stuff like Kelly Clarkson's "since you been gone" (or whatever that is).

Pink has a really great voice...you hear legitimate sorrow and power in it.

Shania Twain is an impressive musician...she's not just a pretty face.

Taylor Swift (although novel) writes extremely catchy tunes that you'll be hearing for years...and yes, she actually writes them. She gets respek from me.

I like 80's New Wave:

Aha (you know the song)

Naked Eyes (Always Something There...)

etc.

Somewhere around here I've got a mix of Pink's "I'm Coming Out" to the music of Billy Idol's "White Wedding." I was amazed at how well it works: now it's one of my pick-me-up songs. :-)

Haven't paid much attention to Kelly Clarkson, but Shania is the s**t. I've only heard the name so far, but I may look up Taylor Swift sometime. (Even with all of the retro-glam-Betty-Page thing she's got going, Katy Perry was a major disappointment for me.)

I pretty much gave up on burning CDs at home cuz USB ports are built into just about everything these days. 90% of my music stash is in MP3s on a 400-gig portable HD, and I just take it with me. It's great for work. :-)

I gave away all my LPs probably five or six years ago: lot of Alice Cooper, some Devo, Blondie, the Cars, Iron Maiden, other stuff. I posted on the local Freecycle list, and the response was amazing. it was really kinda funny watching a goth girl in red plaid shorts, torn fishnets, blue pigtails, combat boots, and facial piercings just poring thru the 80s New Wave albums. She took just about all of them, plus all the Alice Cooper she could find.

Pink has a striking voice. Personally, I like melancholy music and she's like the ultimate melancholy pop singer. Very soulful. Its a shame that she's not good at writing. She does write her own music now, but her writing is cheesy, uninventive, and shallow.

Shania Twain was a professional working musician before she became a pop star. She's trained and well-versed in all kinds of music. She's intelligent and committed to her craft. Her husband is her producer, and he's a great producer...so the two of them have created some nice stuff.

Taylor Swift surprised me because she not only writes catchy tunes, but she's prolific...she will sit down and write a song and be done with it and write another. Its hard to do that and not milk yourself dry of ideas. Her production happens in Nashville, but she lays the groundwork and for someone so young that's impressive.

First and foremost right now I would say Grizzly Bear.

Josh Rouse, Sufjan Stevens, Mos Def, Deftones, MGMT, Otis Redding, Zero 7, Smashing Pumpkins, Spoon, ELO, Coheed and Cambria, Ben Folds Five, Iron and Wine, My Morning Jacket...just a few...

Those are guilty secrets?

Grizzly Bear is chic...as are MGMT, Spoon, Sufjan, and Iron and Wine. I just got done listening to Sufjan's "John Wayne Gacy, Jr". Hauntingly beautiful stuff.

What you neglected to tell us about are the Ricky Martin jams you cant get enough of.

I am working on some arrangements for my daughter to sing just for fun. One of the songs is "Love will keep us together" I really think it is a pop masterpiece, great arrangement, fun piano stuff, great synth and bass lines. I liked it as a kid and can still listen to it over and over 30+ years later.

Oh man, my bad. I skimmed and just thought it was a "what are you listening to" thread.

I will say though, ELO could probably fit on both lists.

Hootie and the Blowfish for sure.

Yeah. Not sure I would have put them in guilty pleasure territory until Use Somebody and Sex On Fire got played 20 million times on the radio, but I've generally enjoyed most their stuff.

You would be surprised at how many music lovers enjoy Enya.

I have always said that the sign of good music is whether or not it takes you places in your mind, and Enya does that.

I like some weird music: some that come to mind are Lykke Li, Santigold, Damien Rice, The Knife, Royksopp, The Ting Tings.

I love Regina Spektor, but that's okay because she is amazing.

Poker Face (obviously) is one of them. The other is Bad Romance - I had sex to that song once, not by choice, but I obviously didn't mind.
