But, he's another performer that does not fall into the "ashamed" category.
There is indeed no shame in thinking Elton John is awesome. Tumbleweed Connection and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road are both among the best albums of the 70's.

GO! You have no idea what your missing his voice is

Yeah I've seen Elton live. It was incredible.... as far as the crowd being on their feet the entire show and singing along to all the songs, it was the closest thing I felt yet to the sort of feeling you get at a u2 show.

I was at the George Michael concert where they shot the video for his duet with Elton on "Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me".

Should I be ashamed of that?

You should consider yourself one of the most blessed people on the planet.

Ha, that's a stretch, but, I do like that version of the song.

Elton still sounds good, relatively speaking, but man oh man, was his voice truly special back in the laste 60's early 70's. Just amazing.

I love Stevie Wonder. There's certainly no shame in that ... unless you consider that I really have a huge soft spot for "I Just Called To Say I Love You," which I find extremely sweet and charming. With a killer melody (verses moreso than the chorus).

As you should.....in fact, to not like him is what one ought to be ashamed of.

This, on the other hand.....



Hey, I like "Overjoyed", which a lot of people I know make fun of.

For whatever reason, my favorite Wonder song is "Uptight", even though Talking Book and Songs in the Key of Life are the albums I'm most in awe of by him.

You should punch anyone who makes fun of Overjoyed. It's a BEAUTIFUL song. Lush and gorgeous.

I have so many other reasons to want to punch people, though.

Sir Duke FTW.

Anyone who doesn't like this song should be sent to the gulag.

Classic Stevie is just fantabulous.

But come on - is no one going to mock me for loving I Just Called To Say I Love You?

I guess it could be worse - I could have admitted to loving Part Time Lover.
