I've been tagged by my friend, Steviewren, and the challenge is to list 5 songs that I am embarrassed that I enjoy. This is the most clever tag and really got me thinking. So here goes in no particular order:
Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine-this always takes me back to the late sixties and early seventies. I got to see the play "Hair" in London and I thought the music was great. Knowing who I am now it probably would seem strange to people that I would enjoy this. I was definitely not a hippie.
The Star Wars Theme--I love the Star Wars movies and I know there is a stigma to people that enjoy them. I love the whole good vs evil theme throughout them. My husband got me into them and Star Trek. I would have to say Harrison Ford was my favorite character.
Henry the Eight, I am by Herman's Hermits--this is another song that takes me back to the 60's. I thought it was such a darling song and I sometimes still get it locked in my head. You know the part, "Second verse, same as the first". So many pop songs are depressing now, there were lots of cutsey songs in the 60's.
Stop in the Name of Love by Diana Ross and the Supremes--My girlfriend Pam and I stood in front of her big bathroom mirror and sang this with the hand motions along with her 45 record about 8 million times. Of course, we had brushes for microphones. We were so cool. I think we called ourselves tuff back then.
R-E-S-P-E-C-T by Aretha Franklin--this was a song of my youth that had the most wonderful beat, in my estimation. I just think this is a neat song and have thought it for over 40 years. I admit it's not something you would hear in the most sophisticated settings, but it's a fun song.
I took away the one originally I had put down. It sounded braggy and that is the last thing I want to sound like. Sorry.
Now I have shared mine. Here's the rules:
1. Post the link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 5 songs that you are embarrassed to admit to others that you like and tell why.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post.
This was fun and it took me all day to figure out what songs I would not be thrilled about others knowing I liked. You are supposed to link the songs to YouTube, but you know if you are reading this that I am somewhat computer challenged. I'm thrilled I've figured out this much.
I am now tagging, Ruthie at Just Ruthie, Sharon at Techno-Nana, Maggie at Nuts in May, Barb at French Elements, A Woman Who Is at In A Garden. Have fun!
