OT. Not so sacred cows. Artists that you love but aren't supposed to.

My 2nd favourite band of all time is Crowded House. Terminally uncool but just have brilliant songs. I also have a soft spot for a bit of Abba and the Beatles.

Liking the Beatles is unusual?

Depending on one's age The Rolling Stones could be uncool, or a joke even. That's nos a new phenomenon either. I hear things like 'they suck,' 'they haven't been able to play for years,' '#$%^ing geezers.'

Yet there is the dichotomy of a kid wearing a vintage Rolling Stones t-shirt but disliking the band still.

Around IORR U2 get bashed a lot, but I like them.

Elton John- early Elton only though. The epic being Captain Fantastic. He came from the top of the mountain to the bottom and then got on a different mountain like Rod Stewart did and I never liked his music again.

I love early Elton John's music, but I don't think if you're supposed to not like that.
The latter stuff, yes.

There's a guy here that I work with who was dating a girl who had on a Stones T-Shirt, and one day she asks the guy, do you know what this symbol (tongue and lips) means? Yes, he replies, it's the Rolling Stones. And then she asks him, Oh OK. And what is it they sing?? My coworkers were dying, saying you'd better not let me (VL13) hear that! To which I responded, well I woulda ripped the shirt off of her right there and walked away. Clearly she's not fit to wear such a thing!

Gordon Strachan is hilarious. Can't understand a word but it sounds good.

I didn't know Crowded House was unhip. Critics love Neil Finn, always have it seems. Rock critics like the Monkees too, though I don't share their passion. ABBA is a widely-shared guilty pleasure and many other musicians (punks like the Clash!) praised them even way back when.

Come on people, what about your REAL guilty pleasures. I'm talking about back-of-the-closet stuff that you don't share with anyone: Air Supply. Seals & Crofts. Bread. Foreigner.

Let your freak flag fly!

I'm listening a lot to Katy Perry's single FIREWORK. Nicely constructed pop tune and nice lyrics. But don't tell anyone I said that.

I'd say ABBA but I think that now it's pretty much accepted that they were great. Plus, they helped Amanda Seyfried on her rise to stardom, and who can argue with that?

So I'll say Cliff Richard. His early stuff is often really, truly excellent, I promise, and he's had his moments since then.
