    I used to be a big Avril Lavigne fan. I have no idea why.

    Bruce Hornsby was cool enough to gig with the Grateful Dead.

    Neil Diamond sold tons of songs, wrote for a lot of folks, has impersonators like the King does, and puts on a hell of a show.

    There are a lot of songs that I don't so much like, but, I remember them being on the air a lot during certain parts of my life---sort of a nostalgia filter, as it were.

    If you consider Bruce Hornsby the cheesiest music you listen to you must be lactose intolerant. ;)

    Sugar, Sugar by the Archies. I can't believe I said that semi-outloud.

    Don't EVER be ashamed of Andy Williams man. One of the greatest voices EVER.

    Well, since I have become a pastor, it's not something I'll admit often, but I won an 8th grade dance contest at a Christmas dance, and my partner and I won on this last song. It's still a memorable song to me. In my defense, I wasn't so much into lyrics growing up; it was more about the music and how it made me want to move.

    For some reason 'I Saw The Sign' by Ace Of Base always appealed to me. I think it's the beat..

    I went to see The Outlaws in 1977 with The Michael Stanley Band opening at the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh. Someone in the MSB was sick so they brought in Nick Guilder at the last minute as a substitute. He lasted about 3 songs with constant booing and stuff being thrown at the stage. When a empty liquor bottle hit the guitarist they flipped off the crowd and left the stage.

    I wish we had the option of a "laugh" reaction, because that was my reaction. I see you're from Alabama, what part?

    "What I Like About You" by the Romantics. Basic stuff, but catchy enough to make for a semi-annoying earwig.

    I'm also embarrassed by anything I play.

    I figured you were from here when I recognized the coat of arms.

    BTW, I hope you were laughing at the Nick Guilder story and not my embarrassing Ace Of Base confession :D

    Hank William's " I Can't Help It ( If I'm Still In Love With You ) "
    I'll never get tired of listening to that one ( performed by H.W. of course )

    I was reading an old punk fanzine in which Jello Biafra (whom I despise) was slamming this Deutsch Wayne Newton as the most horrible music/performer imaginable. Naturally I had to check it out. Cheesey as one of my grandmothers Bierocks, never sure which eye to look at, this guy has a huge long career and I love to throw some of this on the Youtube when I'm bored. Biafra , whose career has consisted of attention hoing and political whining, has never been on my screen.
