Hard to believe this video was made over 50 years ago for The Macoy's song "Sloopy".....bet she doesn't move or look like this now!

The thread about Rap got me to thinking about bands and singles you actually really liked but could admit to your mates when you were younger.

Anybody out there brave enough to liking any of the above or to list there own guilty secrets?
Nthing uncool about Kate Bush Mick, she is very cool and imo the most gifted and inventive female artist of all time.
I liked Abba, well, i liked two of them.
In those days you got labelled a 'Nancy boy" or "Poufter" for liking pop.
We didn't have Childline to ring when we were having the p I s s ripped out of us.
Fck me.....how did we survive!!?
A lot in that list are certainly not uncool
22.214.171.124.10.11.&16 are all on my mp3 all time favourite tunes that currently total in number 1050 tracks which I play on shuffle all most evenings as I rarely watch TV unless on catch up
This video of her singing "If not for you" was filmed in 1971 when she was 19-20 years of age and she looks so fresh and natural.
Love the hair as well,remember that 70's era so vividly,the cute girls always seemed to have that sleek style with the centre parting.......and a Fkin great bush of unruly hair over the old "beef curtains". :-(
The Lion Sleeps Tonight - version by Tight Fit in 1982, as a kid I loved it!
I saw Tyrannosaurus Rex at 'Mothers' in '68, and they were brilliant, but, Bolan got too big and greedy and TRex became ****e.
George Harrison is an all-time favourite of mine, and "My Sweet Lord" one of my favourites.
Uncool, I know, but Ella and Billie Holliday are my all-time favourites.
"Tie a yellow ribbon" by Tony Orlando and Dawn deserves a mention.
"I can't stand the rain" by Eruption.
"When will I be famous" by BROS doesn't make my list though!!
"Touch me" by Samantha Fox creeps on though.
As I am the coolest person on the planet it therefore means everything I like is cool thus if I like it it's cool.
That is a pretty uncool list Mick!
Agree about Harrison being the coolest Beatle. While My Guitar Gently Weeps being the best song by any of the Fab 4 and better than any Beatles tune.
I can boogie by baccara.
Don't feel sorry for lover boy by scritti pollitti.
Kung-fu fighting cannot recall that the singer.
Words by f r David.
All probably hated by everyone else.
Very early Elton John. I have his first four albums and saw him live three times in very small venues. This was kept quiet as he was not 'progressive' and very unhip for students......Then I went off his music just as he started wearing big silly glasses and wearing oddball clothes
