    There are very few songs I'm embarrassed to admit I like...I like a lot of music that's considered "bad" by the arbiter of genius black music (ie, D****l).

    Lots of songs off Wham!'s MAKE IT BIG work for me.

    Wifey's always disappointed when I rep the piano man, too.

    When I was in grade school this friend of my sister had a radio show. He said, "call in, and I'll play any requests you have." So I stayed up til midnight most nights, waiting for his show, and call in my request. "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" by Whitney Houston. Same request every night. And I'd record that portion of the show onto cassette, so I had a whole side of a tape with the "this one goes out to..." intros followed by the song. I'd listen to it over and over.

    Meanwhile, my entire record collection was punk and death metal.

    This was about the same time I began questioning my sexuality.

    Erasure - Respect

    I was force-fed this song at the health club I used to work out at back in 88-89. I always thought I hated the song...but apparently I love it.

    I haven't heard this song yet, but KC is my dude. If shit's good you don't need to be embarrassed of it. "Toxic" is not a song worthy of being embarrassed to love, that shit is killer. Maybe if you really like Britney's TV show you should be embarrassed...

    Not too long ago, my little brother was talking about how these guys are despite the radio friendly songs they are known for. That's debateable, but I've taken a shine to "Tap, Twist, Snap"

    IMO, Wham!'s first LP from '82 has a lot of nice boogie moments on it.

    I like the track LOVE WILL SAVE THE DAY of this album...!

    Mario "You Should Let Me Love You" and both reggae covers I've heard of it.

    And speaking of: downy-soft reggae artist Fiona does a cover of "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" by Elton John over the Substitute Lover riddim. And I love it.

    And I think my love of Wham's "Everything She Wants" is fairly well documented here.

    I think David Byrne was playing this as his encore on a tour a couple years back...

    How about Don Henley -- All she wants to do is Dance ----- just the Miami Vice synth intro and drums. I won't acknowledge that I like it, but I will turn it up. Pure sacchrine!

    Phil Collins "In the air tonight".

    I know that's subjective because the song is a classic. But anyway, I always pretended like that song wasn't nearly as dope as I knew it was.

    sorry phil.




























    oh, and Duran Duran.

    Dude, Mario? And you thought "Touch" by Omarion was suspect.

    Fuck, I reaaaaaaaly liked that recent rock song "Islands in the sun". Was that by Weezer?

    I used to live with a good friend in Flint. I worked in Ann arbor which is like a 45 minute drive. Sometimes I would stay the night, somtimes I would come home at like 4:30 in the morning (i was a bartender)

    One saturday after i had worked and returned home late, my roommate got up early to clean the house. Apparently he did not think I was home, because teh radio as on full blast playing his cassingle of "STRAIGHT UP (NOW TELL ME)" By Paula Abdul. He was singing along really loud. I peeked out the door, and he even had a couple of swift little steps to accompany his song and cleaning.

    I interuppted him and he tried to play it off as if it was a joke meant to wake me up. But his red ass face said otherwise.

    Omarion is a lot more suspect than Mario.

    I was hanging out with some local electronic DJs last night and I made one of them positively green with envy by mentioning I had an OG "Young Guns (Go For It)" 12". He was lamenting about never being able to find it and not being able to afford it if he did.

    There later ensued a debate as to which DJ would be a bigger draw in NC: Mark Grant or Noel Sanger, neither of whom I had even heard of. Mark Grant was the winner 2 to 1, with one of the DJs (who spins house and electro) attacking Sanger on the basis that "trance sucks."

    I was confused. Maybe I should have called PLUR on my celly to help out.

    Whenever a Phil Collins jam comes on the radio I always roll the windows down and sing real loud to embarass my old lady. Some particular favs: Easy Lover and Against all Odds.

    Come to think of it, if I'm rolling down the windows and blasting this sh*t I'm not that embarassed am I?

    I once had a moment in the car with C. Aguillera's "Beautiful". It pains me to admit it...I must have been off the Prozac that day...

  • I don't love it but I kinda like Spagna "call me"...

    Sorry guys,

    He still covers this song. He does a real nice version of it. I saw him three times last year. If you get a chance go see David Byrne, the man puts on a helluva show.
