G'day

I remember some time ago there was a thread about "guilty pleasures" in music, and a lot of people said Phil Collins.

Why is everyone so ashamed to like Phil Collins? There's nothing really wrong about him, let alone anything embarassing. Are people just afraid to admit it cos he's not METAL or am I missing the point?

I can understand if you liked, say, Paris Hilton's music, THAT would be more of a 'guilty pleasure'. But why Phil Collins?

I say we should all stop being ashamed to listen to anything - it's music. You either like it or not.

Because his solo stuff was really realyl really commercial 80's pop, however, he was an amazing singer for genesis, but an even better drummer.

There. I listen to a lot of stuff which other people say is stupid (eg. Blink 182, Sum 41, Bowling for Soup, some Angels n' Airwaves songs) but I'm not ashamed of it.

I'm not ashamed of liking Ayumi Hamasaki.

Although there are some artists I may be a little ashamed of.

Oh and Phil Collins sound tech taught my maths teacher, and now my maths teacher is semi teaching me. YAY.

Some of his stuff is good to listen to once in a while. Not exactly my favourite artist, but I don't see why you should be ashamed to listen to him if you actually like him.

Whatever floats on your boat I guess.
Be a man.

Do the right thing.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

To be fair, if we didn't have that annoying drum sound, which I hate as much as the next guy.. We wouldn't have Prince.

I like Phil collins and Genesis, they made some catchy tunes and made more money than any of us could imagine.
