    As a kid this was one of my favorite songs. Those are SERIOUS bell bottoms.

    Other examples?

    To be honest, I'm not embarrassed by my likes. Everybody likes something, and I don't have to defend my choices.

    I do, however, wonder about some of you, tho.

    I saw Celine Dion live in Las Vegas. She made me cry. I hate typing that.

    I'm a sucker for vocal harmonies, even in the most pop-sounding dribble. I was fortunate enough to play in a handful of groups that had singers capable of pulling off 3 part harmonies. When it clicks, especially live, it still gives me chills.

    I secretly liked this one when it was popular, would never have admitted it at the time lol.

    I sort of liked everything when growing up, including Disco. Tough to reconcile with my then long haired rocker image, and I would never have admitted it at the time.
    Now I'm getting too old to give a hoot, I just can't remember any names.

    2 very cringe worthy would be "Smile a little Smile for Me, RoseMarie" and Seventeen by Janis Ian. First one just awful! Second, almost suicidal. How did we buy off on that one. I also had every 45 the Temptations made though and my older brother turned me onto the Allman Brothers and the Ventures.... My only 70s dance/disco was Michael Jackson's with Don't Stop...

    Dude. Michael Jacksons "Off The Wall" is one of the all time great records IMO.

    I love the Tempations LOL! Old Soul and RnB is were it's at. MJ is Ok in my book too. A legend.

    Growing up in the 80s, I really like Duran Duran and Hall & Oates! Oh, and pretty much all hair metal.

    And Off the Wall is THE best Jackson record!

    Not embarrassing song, but back when "Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport" was on radio, I thought they were saying some guy's name . . .Tommy Cangarudonsport? or something . . and didn't find out till years later what it really was. Hope that story makes sense lol
