What CD or Lp do you have that you have to listen to when you're alone...no one around to point at you and laugh and say "You bought THAT"? or "I didn't know you liked THAT"!
Barry Mannilow's greatest hits...I can only listen to it when my husband is away...always brings weird expressions and laughter. Hey, his songs remind me of my days in New York and High school. They played him alot on the top 40 stations. Now they play his music in the supermarket and every elevator I have been in.
I also have WHAM...Make it Big(Wake me up before you go go....)
I got ready to say The Carpenters, but I'm not embarrassed to say I like them..Karen had a beautiful voice..nice memories.
Ok, now that I have humiliated myself...who got next???

There is nothing wrong with Barry Manilow...be quite...lol...
I not embarrassed to have any of my music;..I go down for the count becasue I took time to collect it, come what may, I really dont care what folk think about my sounds...lol...
I know what people may have trouble with in my collection, as I have seen the reaction when folk look through my 'mounds' of music: country. I love country music, and you can hear the origins of reggae ('ska' in particular) in this music. Modern country is more up-tempo and danceable...where the old country music of the 40's 50's and 60's is more 'soulful' and 'ballardry'... in this case: 'Poppa was too'...my daddy loved it and it its good enough for me...:-)(shout out to Fayetteville, NC).

I'm not embarrassed by any of my music. However, I have gotten some remarks when friends of mine found out I bought cds by Clay Aiken and Kelly Clarkson, not to mention Glen Campbell and Barry Manilow.

Hello again, soulful brothers and sisters!
When i aged 12-13 years-old i played some 45's of my sister wich after she give to me. Two of this was "Sugar Baby Love" and "You Can't Do It" by UK group The Rubettes. I remember, after i was "ashamed" for heard this "bland" and "insulse" music when some friends come at my home and see this singles in my room. Finally, i take back this 45's to my sister again.
Much after i buying "Smiling Faces" 45 by Temptations in a second-hand store jointly with many others. When i get at my town, at home, i takes this 45 and the vynil was... "Giggi l'Amoroso", by italian Dalila! (with the sleeve of Temptations!). I keeps this 45 many time. I don't likes Dalila and is considered "pachanga-pop", but the sleeve of Temptations was a good "camouflage".
Peace and Soul Food!

I suppose mine's a toss up between some Village People compilation and Venom's "At War With Satan" although the Dayglo Abortions' "Feed U.S. A Fetus" is too dumb to justify it's all round nastiness... now that I think about it, there are a few more skeletons in there like Dr Hook...

The worst i actually play on occasion is "Psychedelic Lollipop" by the Blues Magoos. A guilty pleasure along with a couple of early Beach Boys disks and the entire Spanky and Our Gang catalogue. There's some Gary Puckett in the mix, too.

Romantic Melodies - Remington records. 1949
This was trash one year after Columbia introduced the LP record.
Do not forget that William S. Paley (the chairman and creator of CBS) was on his way, following the LP introduction, to the triumphs of "See It Now" anchored by Edward R. Murrow.
That's not exactly chopped liver.

Well, I know my cousin Larry owned at least one LP by Leonard Nimoy, and I think he had something by William Shatner too. Listening to Spock sing "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" would bring Larry to tears. It really touched him. Larry tried to get Spock to guest with his band once, but Spock balked when he found out Larry wanted him to wear his Vulcan getup. Just imagine, Spock singing "Lucy" with Larry's band, the bubbles rising slowly to the ceiling...would have been memorable, I'm sure. Oh well.
