Subject: Songs you like from artists/genres you don't listen to and/or like

Written By: woops on 03/11/09 at 3:27 pm

What's your favorite song from any artist or type of music that you don't normally listen to.


Some of my favorite songs...


Whitney Houston "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)", it's a catchy song despite that I find Whitney too over the top

Radiohead "Karma Police" & "Creep" (BTW, I'm not a Cyrus)

Beach Boys "Good Viberations", most of theit songs sound the same, IMHO


Nine Inch Nails "Closer", not much into industrial rock

Dr. Dre "Nothin' But A 'G' Thang" & "Let It Ride", not much into gangsta rap

I like 'Gotta Be Somebody' by Nickelback, but everything else they do all sounds the same

I liked 'Cream' by Prince.  He had a few other listenable songs, but I never really cared for his music.  His original version of 'Kiss' is to me the worst song ever made

Black Eyed Peas...I didn't really care for their stuff at first, but when they released "Don't Lie" in mid-2005, I thought that that song had a rather catchy beat to it. So I kinda like that one. As well as maybe one or two of their other songs.


Cher...I don't like most of her stuff, but I can tolerate "After All" (her 1989 duet with Peter Cetera) and her early 90's cover of "Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss)", but that's about it.


I don't much care for country, but some country artists have songs I don't mind listening to that sound like pop. Examples include LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live", "I Need You" and "Can't Fight The Moonlight".


More to come later.

Prince's "Kiss".  8-P  It's in my top 10 list of bad songs, right up there with "Pass the Dutchie" 8-P

And now, after somehow forgetting about this thread six years ago, I can add more.

Sometimes I will listen to Taylor Swift, who is primarily a country artist, but much of her latest stuff has sounded a lot more like pop.
And speaking of country-pop crossovers, I like Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance", but mainly the mix that has feminine background vocals.


I don't like a whole lot of rap, but many "oldschool" rap songs/artist I can tolerate (and by that I mean such artists up through the mid 1990s or so), and some of Will Smith's solo songs (including the title track from Men In Black, which he starred in) I enjoy listening to.
