    Let's face it - all of us like some tunes that may not be cool. If you ever wanted to post something like that on the "what are you listening to" thread but didn't dare do it because you thought everyone was going to laugh at you like so...


    ...post 'em up in this thread.


    Here's a few I like to start:


    This is also Fitz's theme song.




    Now, *I* don't think Rainbow is uncool at all, which is sort of the point--




    Classic late '80's hair metal at its best, although viewing this may burn your retinas.

    Since Rustola hit the 80's, I'll throw some gems from the 70's.

    This song is so fucking terrible, but it stuck in my head back in the '80s. Every time I hear it, it provokes nostalgia.

    Oh God, lots. I'm crazy for a ton of soul music, which would be exceptionally uncool here in Beer Barrel Land. @VisCOP, I love that Boz Scaggs album. It's the absolute peak of cocaine sleaze LA funk, and Lowdown nails it. Also, pretty much any AM schlock from the '70s, when I had absolutely no musical filters - pre-disco stuff like Rock the Boat and Brandy, Al Stewart (Year of the Cat and Time Passages) and Patsy Gallant's From LA to New York. Also, this particularly insipid piece of crap:



    Mind, I never put this stuff on because I'm bound to hear each one at least twice a year in a shopping mall. You can ignore the promptings of nostalgia if you want, but why bother? Rigorous coolness is boring.
