musical embarrassment
This is what i was referring to in in a previous entry-the asterisk next to lionel ritchie. I'm sure we've all suffered it at some point-getting sprung listening to "rock n roll love letter" by the bay city rollers (or is that only me) .Well anyway here's the thing-i used to detest lionel ritchie-just plain hated his guts -wanted to string myself up over "dancing on the ceiling" -and more so over the video of it-arrghhhhhh!!!!! -running and screaming and waving arms around- a bit like that. But something has happened and i can't stop listening to lionel ritchie and the commodores all day long. I wanna hear "flying high". I wanna hear "three times a lady" -especially the mushy bit in the middle. (I think that's the key-middle age.) And george benson. Can't stop listening to him either -Turn your love around do do do do do do do. But here's the thing-with middle age comes this other thing -I NO LONGER SUFFER FROM MUSICAL EMBARRASSMENT. Don't give a stuff anymore what people think of my taste-haha.

So here are some music confessions.I have in my possession 2(count them) albums by the partridge family .Oh,yes. And a david cassidy solo album-actually it's fairly crap but he looks pretty on the cover.I have been known to listen to:

Bert kaempfert,herb alpert and the tijuana brass,gordon lightfoot,merle haggard,marty robbins,johnny horton,LEO SAYER-that's all the time,actually.ELO-can't get enough of them,either.I haven't stopped listening to the monkees since childhood.Mike nesmith solo stuff.What other musical confessions can be made in this here journal entry...o.k. i can't get enough of explosive radio hits 1978-here's the track listing...

side a

wuthering heights-kate bush
shut down,turn off-little river band
can't smile without you-barry manilow
shy girl-beathoven
work out fine-stylus
every 1's a winner-hot chocolate
for a few dollars more-smokie
ego-elton john
ebony eyes-bob welch

side b

standing in the rain-john paul young
jack and jill-raydio
still; the same-bob seger and the silver bullet band
if you can't give me love-suzi quatro
fool(if you think it's over)-chris rea
you keep me dancing-samanthe sang
lonely lives-beeb birtles/graham goble
because the night-patti smith group.

I even crank the volume right upfor ebony eyes and jack and jill. Oh another music confession-i own a copy of mark holden's greatest hits-listen to it and even sing along with it. Well it's all out now.All of it-and it feels good good good  .

Mood - i'm once,twice,three times a lady
Music - is it any wonder-keane(in my head)
Edited - Never

Yay Dafty!

Some random (s)hits from my iPod:

- ABBA: The Day Before You Came.  Five and a half minutes of the same bloody thing over and over again.  So why do I like it?
- Goodness Gracious Me, by whatzizname and that bird, from a Carry On film which it got cut from.  You know the one I mean.
- Schneider Sisters, Washboard Rock n Roll.  If you don't know it, you don't have the Long Way To The Top CD.
- Elizabeth Rules UK.  I love Bill, I love Bill's music.  But this song?  Please make it stop.
- A bizarre accoustic version of No Woman No Cry by Christina Anu.

And then I wonder why the iPod freezes when put on random play...

Oh yes-abba! forgot to mention them! I even love their slushy song "my love, my life". Sounds like quite an interesting collection you have there, jodie  .

well dafty i see nothing wrong with your music selection (except maybe the Mark Holden reference - did he have more than one hit 'I want to make you my lady' was the only one I could remember.  I love Barry Manilow and I'm not afraid to admit it I also have many of those songs as well as Don MaClean (Americian Pie), skyhooks, ABBA, the Carpentars, Grease, Rocky Horror (who doesn't know how to do the Time Warp) The Village People and even Meatloaf to name a few (and if I look really hard I could probably find Spice Girls) Don't be afraid stand tall and proud and shout it from the mountain tops - which reminds me I also really like listening to musicals (the sound of music, seven brides for seven brothers....ect) However Jodes collection defies the realms of reality except for her ABBA and Bill songs   hehehe  prehaps we should form some sort of support group!!
