Guilty Pleasures


Recommended Posts

I've got some guilty pleasures that are a little,outside the norm,first off Queen,yep,Queen,i love 'em,particularly Bohemian Rhapsody,i know it doesn't sound like a guilty pleasure,but it's very uncool in my school,personally,i LOVE them.As for the "American Bandstand" girl,:console: there,there,that stuff rocks.And loads of bluegrass and Rockabilly stuff :chickeddance: (Zeppelin loved that stuff too,it still isn't largely considered to be "cool") Also i like a lot of freaky hippy jams like Iron Butterfly :hippy: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is actually a guilty pleasure for me!It's my favourite guilty pleasure song of all time!"Cool" in my school is a weird thing!And of course,my extremely guilty pleasure,and the weirdest one anyone here will have is...SLAYER!!!I love them!I've got the soundtrack to the apocalypse 4 cd set,it's really freaky,but "Cool" in my town is warped!Metallica is "guilty" for gods sake! (I prefer them to Slayer) Even a LOT of Zep's favs are "guilty",Robert Johnson?John Lee Hooker?You heard me:

Iron Butterfly

The Doors

Jefferson Airplane

60's Acid Rock in general

^ You're saying those are guilty pleasures because they're uncool at your school...all of them ? :huh:

If that's the case, there's seriously something wrong at your school....just about everyone you listed are GREAT....You didn't even mention disco or crappy 70s ballad rock !!!

Yep,school is WEIRD!!!These bands "Suck",but the bands they influence "Rock" (e.g. Led Zeppelin from Robert Johnson,Trivium from Metallica) it's kinda hypocrissy,I love each and every one of those bands,the only one that someone could cal remotely "Cheesy" is Meat Loaf,but c'mon,Bat Out Of Hell,anyone?I'm pretty diverse in tastes,so it's hard to make musical friends,i'm known at school as "The Kid Who Won't Shut Up about Led Zeppelin",when i do make music friends,i usually devote myself to their favourite form,i can usually get by with blues-lovers and dirty metal-heads alike.

Old Shep - Walter Brennan

When I was a lad

And old shep was a pup

Over hills and meadows wed stray

Just a boy and his dog

We were both full of fun

We grew up together that way

I remember the time at the old swimmin hold

When I would have drowned beyond doubt

But old shep was right there

To the rescue he came

He jumped in and then pulled me out

As the years fast did roll

Old shep he grew old

His eyes were fast growing dim

And one day the doctor looked at me and said

I can do no more for him jim

With hands that were trembling

I picked up my gun

And aimed it at sheps faithful head

I just couldnt do it

I wanted to run

I wish they would shoot me instead

He came to my side

And looked up at me

And laid his old head on my knee

I had struck the best friend that a man ever had

I cried so I scarcely could see

Old shep he has gone

Where the good doggies go

And no more with old shep will I roam

But if dogs have a heaven

Theres one thing I know

Old shep has a wonderful home

:boohoo:

Sometimes at work they play songs that I like just because I know I can sing along to them.

I was singing a Jimmy Buffett song the other day. "Come Monday, it'll be alright....blah,blah. I"ll be holding you tight...blah.blah.blah...."

:lol:

And when I don't know the words, I just pretend I do. :lol:

Tesla

but, I'm not embarrassed to say that I love I Will Always Love You from Best Little Whorehouse in Texas-that is a beautiful song. But I can't stand Whitney Houston's version.

I graduated in 91 so i pretty much grew up with that even though i usually had zep kickin in the car. A pouple of those songs and bands you mentioned i just listened to yesterday!!bagoverhead.gif

I'm embarrassed for so many of you !

And that's exactly what this thread is about ehh ? PURE EMBARRASSEMENT !!!

Some real stinkers here. :lol:

Oh man...that's an understatement! :lol:

But on the other hand, the stinkers make you appreciate the good 'uns all that much more.

I like nearly all the songs you guys have mentioned plus so many more.......my guilty pleasure today has been Year of the Cat by Al Stewart.

Big Boys Don't Cry by 10cc.....dang leddy, why'd ya have to say that one.....now I'll have to go download that album.

Sometimes around the house I will spontaneously break out with a chorus of Gimme Dat Ding and my daughter gives me one of these looks: :huh:
