Here's the thread you've all been waiting for; a thread to air your musical embarassments. I want to know what bands/songs you've really liked and been into which you've bagged mercilessly to your friends but secretly danced to.
In the spirit of things, here are mine;
Bobby Brown; I loved (and still love) this guy. Every Little Step is a classic early 90's dance tune. Still rocks whenever I hear it. All On My Own is another I loved.
Hanson; I bought their album (for $5!) just for one song on the album but even MmmmBop! was VERY catchy. A great effort from a band where the oldest was 16 years old I thought.
Bardot; I thought the first album actually had some quality writing on it. Then I saw who the writers were and I knew why. I also noticed the musicians on the album and picked three members from Australia's best ever funk band, Directions in Groove. That earned the album more kudos in my view.
Britney; she was NEVER on any of my lists (other than artists to hate) until she released 'Toxic'. Then I heard that live and I still reckon it's a very catchy tune. Everything else of hers has sucked but that's a cool track I reckon.
Paul Abdul; Just loved her and her music.
Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds; I have the two-CD set of this musical version of the book and I still love every second of it. Some fantastic music with some awesome musicians (David Essex, Phil Lynott, etc.) and a great story.
So, who's next?
