    Yeah, Eric Carmen did "All By Myself", "Make Me Lose Control" and as phat32 said, "Hungry Eyes" from the movie, "Dirty Dancing".

    I have a lot of different tastes of music...a lot of different CDs...A lot of mix CD's too...I've got a lot of classic rock...The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Boston, Van Halen...Big fan of Motown....Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, that sort of thing...And then more modern stuff, from Rob Zombie to even some rap and hip hop...And a lot of 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s...Just a little bit of everything.

    Well, at least I know now that I'm not the only one with a very eclectic collection--Tori Amos to Mozart, Oasis to Ice Cube. A lot of musicians like Jewel, Lisa Loeb, Garbage, Shawn Colvin, Sheryl Crow...

    Hey, wait a minute--am I lesbian??

    I'm only kidding!
    Eep! I have all the above except for Jewel!!! I'm not a lesbian, but one of my best friends is a lesbian; I live in a town with a high lesbian concentration and am a supporter of gay rights. Perhaps my collection is indicative of this!

    That's wack, yo.

    I also own a lot of bluegrass and folksy music (for instance, Emmylou Harris, Nancy Griffith, Steve Earle and the Del McCoury Band)--basically the kinds of music one hears on "Austin City Limits." I enjoy hip-hop, old school rap, and some politically poignant stuff (e.g., PUBLIC ENEMY). Some CD's I must listen to just for their nostalgic qualities (B-52's, Fountains of Wayne, King Crimson, Roger Waters). I own some indie rock, too.

    And last but certainly not least, I enjoy world beat, Brazilian especially (because of a dream I once had--story told upon request), and also Celtic/Irish.

    phat, I love the title to this thread. What a funny post!!!Sorry to kind of thread-jack above, in that I'm mind-toggling through memories of my boyfriend's collection and can't think of anything too distasteful. However, when he was a teen, he was crazy about Phil Collins. He had all his records. I can feeel it coming through the air toniiight, hold on... Aieeeee. I can't stand Phil Collins. But I wouldn't hold that against him.

    Worse than "Hungry Eyes" is "She's Like the Wind." (I can't believe I remember the songs from that movie.)

    She's like the wind...through my tree....

    I never quite understood that metaphor. "She's like the wind through A tree" would've made more sense. What is his tree? Is she the wind blowing through the nearly empty space in his mind?

    Shayla,

    I wish I could claim credit, and I was about to attribute the title to the great philosopher of our time, Homer J. Simpson, but I Googled it and came up with Dorothy Parker. Who knew?

    As for the Phil Collins, my Worst Relationship Ever was with someone who loved a famous acid-rock guitarist. (A band/singer who shall remain nameless in case she ever finds this board and sees me bad-mouthing her. Hey, stranger things have happened.)

    Luckily, I despised this musician before the relationship, so it's no great loss to me. Since then, I have cocked an eyebrow toward anyone I've dated who enjoys the music from said artist.

    And so goes the flipside to this thread: How about having a song (or entire band) you like ruined for you because you associate it with a disastrous former relationship?

    I thought that horror of a song was done by Patrick Swazye (from Dirty Dancing fame when he was trying to take over the world)

    Wasn't Eric Carmen also with the Babies?

    I like hungry eyes!!
    I like Eric Carmen too!
    Well....those two songs anyway!!

    I never really thought about the lyrics from Hungry Eyes. I'll have to listen closer.
    Thinking of it now I'm thinking he's singing, "She's like the wind through my dreams" ???

    not that that makes any sense either.....

    I am going to work now - like I've said before
    THIS PLACE IS ADDICTIVE!!!!!
    have a very nice day all :cool:
    So, where's the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?

    Phat! I totally know where you are coming from.

    I cannot listen to Oasis and Foo Fighters without thinking of my ex-boyfriend. Fortunately, I know the he also will never be able to enjoy them without thinking of me, so it's not so bad.

    It's a shame, as I love both groups.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.
