ACROSS THE BORDER
Where the banned are
Tell us a band/artist/song you really like but you’re sure everyone else here hates/will hate.
Bound to say, I think the Megan Thee Stallion album is a corker!
I don't know about everyone hating this (I'm not even sure I can copy the https://youtu.be/ukgyLvfrFvs right URL ???), but this song "Love on Delivery" captured me as a young girl in the sixties, simply because of the guitar riff. The rest is expendable.
I'm a sucker for riffs. That's why I love "Ghosts", for example.
You member your first time...
At eleven, my mind, my heart and some other part of me I was not yet familiar with were stirred. Hence, there could be an entire psychological tome written to explain why I still like this...
I'm taking this into an embarrassing 'guilty pleasures' direction. Again, like Shakin Stevens, something I loved in my teens. And long before I knew about doo wop or anything... but I guess liking this in the morass of new wave music at the time suggested something like Bruce was ready to blow my mind.
I love Daft Punk, no guilt felt either. Great band is a great band and a great song is a great song.
Well spotted everyone! I can't vouch for everyone else, but I can testify to hate everything posted so far in the thread! 😃
Glaswegian instrumental post-rock. Arguably their greatest song. The variation comes not from the essentially one chord the song has, but the extreme noisy/quiet dynamics. Totally hypnotic and cathratic.
Shakin Stevens was one of my favourites in the early 80's when I was 11. I still play some Shaky every now and then, and not in a 'remember the 80's' or ironic kind of way, but because I enjoy it.
@Bosstralian shit, man, me too! First 45 I ever bought was Oh Julie, first album Hot Dog.
I don't know if everyone hates them or even heard of them, but I've taken some heat a few times for loving The Triplets.
My guilty pleasure is Daft Punk. If I want to really crank something in the car I put on Random Access Memories. Incredibly well produced music and always has catchy hooks.
I remember when Suzanne was young she asked for some Daft Punk for Christmas. Her dad said he'd see to that and went out looking for some daft punk. He found some and taped it for her, much to her bamboozlement when she found the tape in her stocking. Neither of us were aware there was a BAND called Daft Punk.
@SteveInJoburg Daft Punk is pretty cool.
