  1. Everybody's got some. What are they? Mine are....
    Taylor Swift
    Fall Out Boy
    ... mostly pop punk stuff.

    Anyone else?

    Big time Dixie Chicks fan, alt leat up until the last album.

    And I do like Taylor enough to listen and watch her stuff on TV. Being totaly subjectice about it and throwing my personal tastes aside, I think she is the best solo writer/player in the past 20 years. Cyrus and Pickler grabbing her to write songs speaks towards this as welll.

    I'm at home listening to political/societal metal.

    Don't own any albums, but I DVR'd her appearance on Live at Abbey Road, and she really blew my mind. Hope that doesn't ruin my punk rock credentials...:smug:

    It took a while to ever admit I like Duran Duran's stuff. But it's catchy. Back in the 80's with all my rock/metal friends.. you didn't dare bring up that band.
  6. Dexies Midnight Runners: Come on Eileen.

    That tune is sweet and you all can bite me if ya think I believe you don't all like it too.

    Great tune.. I'm with ya on that one.
  8. that makes two of us who are at least proud to admit it.

    ok, willing to admit it.
  9. I have a number of these, but the biggest is Karen Carpenter. If there has been a better, pure alto voice in pop music--a genre with thousands and thousands of good alto voices--I don't know whose it is.

    Her voice stops me in my tracks to listen virtually every time I hear it. Listen to how solid and pitch perfect she hits the three, opening low notes in "Only Yesterday" from a dead, cold start. . Unbelieveable!

    I'm proud to admit I'm a fan. A tragic loss.

  11. No one should be embarrassed by anything they listen to.
  12. Foxy-Get Off
  13. I mostly listen to classic rock (Led Zeppelin, Stones, Cream, etc.) but my favorite vocalist is Emmylou Harris. I love the sound of her voice, I just wish she would enunciate.
  14. Ever hear of Miley Cyrus?

    Not that I listen to her! Just, if I did (which I don't!) I'd be very embarassed to admit it.

    But I don't!!!

  15. Of course, they shouldn't...and I'm not. By the same token...

    No one should be so #%^*@%$ literal about the title of a TalkBass thread.

    I'm a sucker for big ballads. I even like Celine Dion and Josh Grobin. If you tell anyone I will kill you.
