    My first rock concert was Uriah Heep ~ probably 1974.

    In the '80s, my wife brought home a Go Gos 33 1/3. I loved it.

    Two influences made me switch from piano to guitar at age 11 :
    Glen Campbell's 12 STRING GUITAR on a reel to reel tape :cool: (definitely NOT embarrassed by this one ~ it's a smoking recording),


    ...and The Monkees :oops:.

    I don't know about embarrassed but one thing I love that most people seem to hate is Lars Ulrich's drumming. That guy gets so much flack, but he's one of my favorite drummers.

    The only other one I can think of might be Sha Na Na. I wore out 3 of their cassettes in my Walkman knockoff as a kid.

    Umm, maybe P!NK, but I only really like the song Try... I also listen to a few soundtracks from musicals every now and again. Really, I don't listen to much I would be embarrassed about!

    I love ELO. I should not be ashamed for this because Jeff Lynne is clearly a composition genius. But ELO music is a guilty pleasure like a hot fudge sundae or Nachos at midnite.

    My wife and I were playing Karma Chameleon for my 8 year old daughter the other day, dancing and singing along trying to get her into it. She thought we were weird; I thought, "hmm, this is not a bad song".

    Song. Haven't seen the video, I guess that's what you mean?
    It does appear that many of these guilty pleasures involve attractive female performers though…
