Hi Dear Prudence, I forgot to add that, I too, am a fan of E. C. I had the pleasure of seeing him perform live with the Attractions twice and once with T. Bone Burnett back in the 80's. Incidentally, Elvis and T.Bone did the most amazing cover of "Baby's In Black" on that occasion.heart

Hi!

Dear Prudence Giving you quality -Facepalms- , since August 7, 2010.

Well, my “Guilty pleasures” thread has been merged with “Confessions” (as Charlie Brown would have said, * SIGH *) It included all kinds of guilty pleasures, not like this one. But I do have a musical confession to make. When I was thirteen/fourteen years old I was into ABBA. My guilty pleasure is that maybe once or twice a year I still listen to a couple of their songs.

 

Wait a sec…; yes, now I’m ready: shoot me.

@Oudis, your post (here) was moved to 'Confessions' as it is was felt to be very similar in theme to 'guilty pleasures' or a more expanded question fitting of 'candid questions' and to have three threads going on such things was thought to be too many. We also took into consideration what you said in your post - "By the by: it’s up to the Mods to leave this thread here or move it somewhere else.".

A ton of threads are getting merged lately, what's up with that?  

@LongHairedLady, threads are merged so to try and keep discussions and topics in the same threads, on track and not to duplicate topics or conversations. Whilst it may be better if posts were left for a few days or a week or two time before we did so time stamp issues come in and it makes it impossible to do in keeping the conversations in sync. We do discuss all merges before they are done so to hopefully not screw things up. A lot of the merging that has been done recently has come from posts or threads that were made a long while back and let go so it became a bit of a mess - who knows how many 'Paul Is Dead' threads there have been.

On top of that Joe is creating individual song entries for all of the songs the Beatles have released and moving related threads into them with the aim of sparking more Beatles themed discussions and is already bearing fruit. So whilst a heck of a lot of threads are being moved it should hopefully calm within a few days.

However its important that the mods (tho its more @Ahhh Girl and myself who do the merges) do strike a balance between carrying out moves and letting discussions and posts go uninterrupted and not peeve folk off. So if we do move anything that folk are puzzled by, think is wrong, disrupts a conversation, or is making the forum a pain to use, please PM a mod (that includes@zig and @Joe) as soon as you can as thats not what we are ever wanting to do. We can always move it back again.

I don't really have any guilty pleasure songs since I feel not guilt for them

Thanks, MMM already explained it.

 

I saw this on tumblr today, thought it was very fitting for this thread:

Well, the thing is, @Linde, that ABBA is seen as “bubble gum” music by many people: crafted to be liked instantaneously but without artistic merit. I think that Andersson and Ulvaeus were the best composing duo since Lennon-McCartney in terms of their ability for catchy tunes –but the very word “catchy” may be considered as a bad word for some. Some of their songs (“Chiquitita”) are simply awful, but in many cases their music still surprises me, thirty years later. Even in terms of lyrics some of their songs aren’t bad.

What's wrong with Abba?

 

I sometimes enjoy listening to very bad old music of which I don't even know in which genre to place it. 

Nothing is wrong with Abba (apart from some of their lyrics being abysmal). I've never understood why there is guilt in listening to some of their music.

I like a two or three Simply Red tracks, eg 'The Mirror' and 'Holding Back The Years'. I would like to make it clear however that Mick Hucknall makes me feel ill.

Personally i couldnt give two figs what folk think about what i like to listen to, no doubt i will find some of what other people like deeply traumatising and leave me questioning their entire existence.

I feel the same about Hucknall.

Me neither. I'm not ashamed of anything I listen to. I personally don't understand how people can genuinely think that singing in the shower song by Becky G (I think) is a good song, for instance. It's autotuned crap and I feel the need to shove a Beatles LP in their faces to show them what good music is, but hey, if people like it, what's that got to do with me? 

The only thing that bothers me is that that kind of music makes the charts and the real good stuff doesn't, with the consequense that a lot of great artists and songs remain undiscovered that way. 

And, I have wondered this for a while: Why is autotuned shit with crappy lyrics, music that's made with the computer with drum machines and synths guaranteed to become a hit? Why is this the sound that apparently appeals to so many people?
 

EDIT: My internet connection broke during the typing of this post so in order to post I quoted MMMs post again, but then all of a sudden my reply was still here so that's why his quotes are in here twice, just an accident.
