    None.

    Seriously, I like what I like and I don't really care if someone else doesn't. No embarrassment needed.

    That said, I like Taylor Swift. She writes some pretty good songs.
    And Miley Cyrus does have a great voice.

    Also, I recently found some youtube clips from the Cowsills. Good stuff!!

    Vulfpeck, Theo Katzman. It's kind of cheesy, but funky. Those guys can play.

    Honestly the only song I really know from her is We Found Love, but good lord I could listen to that voice all day.

    No need for embarrassment from me. She's in my "me likey long time" category.

    I remember back in the 80's when The Police were getting popular but I was a hard rocker and most of my friends would make fun of someone that liked the Police. I never let on when a Police song came on the radio that I loved it and most everything they did and still do.

    God she's hot too. None of the other pop divas come close.

    I love me some Elton John too, some of the best songs ever. Just don't tell my friends :)

    We must inhabit separate universes. Musically, I could happily listen to nothing but jazz from the 50's and 60's, but I must know 10 Rihanna songs. Maybe I should blame my wife and kids, but I go to the grocery store and they ain't playin grockabilly, they're playing Rihanna!

    never been afraid to admit any music that I liked

    When I was in 7th grade I liked Village People music. I didn't get the connotations

    Can't disagree. There's plenty of songs I may not care for that I can still appreciate what went into them.

    One of my favorites is MY Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, but it's kind of embarrassing to admit in just about any circle, outside of a goth club or gay disco. Even embarrassing to admit to guitar players:



    I have also been to see them live.

    Actually, most music I have listened to all my life is punk, hardcore and death rock/gothic, so most people I know in a lifetime of living mostly in Kentucky and working in law enforcement and the military, don't get it.

    It infuriated me how well put together the singles from Katey Perry's first album were.

    Intellectually, I wanted to hate them, but the melodies were perfect ear worms.

    I don't know that they embarrassed me, though... it's more that they were a guilty pleasure.

    Now, playing in the SoCal mod-60's scene... I had to take quite a bit of teasing over my 80's metal past.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd.

    I genuinely love a lot of music from the music-critic-and-record-store-geek pantheon: Velvet Underground, '60s garage rock, Patti Smith, Tom Waits, Sonic Youth. I'm too cool for '70s arena rock like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Rush.

    I know it's music for fat, tooth-deprived bikers and lame, pony-tailed uncles with Confederate flag stickers on their Pontiacs, but dude, I secretly love me some Lynyrd Skynyrd. And this bird cannot change. Lord knows I can't change.

    Meatloaf !!

    According to my wife, playing Bat Out of Hell is a sure sign that I've drank a bit too much and need to go to bed, same goes for Iron Maiden actually.
