This is a fliperoo from the other thread.

Here's one for me: Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.
I love their sound - Valli, of course, but also the production of Bob Crewe, the songwriting of Bob Gaudio and just the band in general. Great stuff that touched upon a variety of genres while always being pop.

Another: The Bee Gees.
Same as above, only Barry Gibb is such a ridiculously talented individual that I would put their 75-79 stretch of greatness next to ANYBODY'S in the annuls of rock/pop. Some of those songs are good in a way that defies all logic. Amazing, amazing, amazing stuff. Perfect pop music.

You guys?

There is a lot of stuff by John Cougar Mellencamp that I dislike, but I do like to crank up his "Uh-Huh" album, skipping some of the overplayed stuff in favor of Stonesy grooves like "Warmer Place to Sleep."

The remarkably frequent line-up changes made Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow kinda ridiculous pretty swiftly, and the last few albums that featured Joe Lynn Turner on vox were pretty cheesy. Poppy. Foreigner wanna-be. Lite hair metal. I still dug a lot of it. I will happily crank up the DIfficult to Cure album any day.

Coverdale/Page was also pure cock-rock cheese, yet I love it.

I am a hardcore fan of the Peter Gabriel era of Genesis, when they were playing epic songs that sounded like Yes meets J.R.R. Tolkein on acid. Thus, the Phil Collins era horrified me in many ways. However - I still find things to like on the Genesis "Mama" album. The concert tape (VHS baby!) that they put out from that tour was really enjoyable, except for the medley of Motown songs that it ends with. I never did make it through that.

As sappy and folkie and sixties angst ridden and a little groovy and kind of dated they are, I like Simon and Garfunkle.

And I don't think it is cool to say some Foreigner songs still sound good.

Dido's first CD. Why? I still don't know. I like a few of those tunes but neither her voice nor the music are special and usually this kind of pop music ain't my cup of tea.

Moody Blues
Chicago
Joni Mitchell
Barbara Streisand

I think I have business liking whatever I like

And would proudly include Chicago, the Moody Blues, Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkle, and John Denver among them....although I can only do Denver for so long.

I've recently realized that I enjoy all things seventies music-wise. Soul, Funk, soft rock, hard rock, British metal, jazz fusion, soul-blues fusion, and even disco.

Now, I don't listen to the metal or arena rock very often, but when I'm in the right mood, I still find it catchy. And disco sure beats listening to dance music from any other era.....if anyone is dragging me out there, that's likely the best bet

The Hooters. (Insert boob joke here) I got a few of their records in the dollar bin and was grooving to them a while back. I really hated them in the 80's. Never gave them a fair shake I guess (insert another boob joke there).
