What's the most uncool song that you've downloaded? I can be strutting into work with my headphones on listening to TLC, Nirvana, Metallica when suddenly shuffle switches to Portrait of my Love by Matt Monro or Requiem by London Boys, even a couple of Bucks Fizz's finest! Trouble is they usually put more of a spring in my step! Anyone else have questionable favourites?

Seeing as you mentioned Bucks Fizz.... Land Of Make Believe is one of my favourite crap songs!

I have various old country songs on my phone! Can't beat a bit of Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton singing "Islands In The Stream". grin

I'm with spikyplants. I mostly listen to dance classics but Islands in the Stream and Working 9 to 5 make me actually dance!

Forgot Dolly ( how could I), she's also on there!

Boys by Sabrina
Pink, Pink Sunshine
Come, baby, come by K7

So many cheesy hits

spikyplants Mon 28-Sep-20 14:36:37

I've been listening to some of the old dancey tunes too but they're certainly not embarrassing, just making me miss being in my teens in the 90s. smile

I've a more embarrassing 9 to 5 in my Youtube listen history, Sheena Easton blush

Oh god that new McFly thing, the one that Des O'Connor could be singing the chorus of - Happiness - I quite like that coming on the radio.

Until I think of Des O'Connor.

The new Steps song is an absolute banger, I think this may become my new cheesy listening classic

Doje Mon 28-Sep-20 15:47:35

NEW Steps song?! I need to hear that!

In my playlist is my favourites from Dr. Hook. Sooo cheesy, but I love a sing along.

I've also just downloaded This Is It, by Danni Minogue. blush

Don't think I noticed listening to Steps as a kid but hasn't Claire got an awesome set of lungs on her?!

hollyandkit Mon 28-Sep-20 16:27:36

I went out for a walk at lunchtime and there was a man blasting out Bryan Adams' Heaven from his car, drumming along on the steering wheel, not the least bit embarrassed - goals.

Too Many Broken Hearts by Jason Donovan.

Oh Jason.

(Pre-I’m a Celeb, when you had that snot bubble moment.)

She really does, I may have seen Steps in concert accidentally (twice) and she's got a fab voice

Footloose always gets me dancing and singing along. Quite like a bit of Belinda Carlisle too.

Itwasaquarterpast11 Mon 28-Sep-20 17:08:35

I'm an ageing goth, but ain't nothing wrong with Requiem by the London Boys...

Pelleas Mon 28-Sep-20 17:22:12

I love the London Boys. I find it quite poignant listening to them now, as they're sadly no longer with us.

YY to Islands in the Stream

& Dolly Parton - Jolene.

IntermittentParps Mon 28-Sep-20 17:26:28

Dolly Parton is not 'bad'! I won't have a word said against her.

The songs from Footloose are cast-iron too.

I love 'Africa' by Toto.
Black Velvet by, is it Alana Miles?
The Carpenters.
The Bee Gees' songs are deathless. And Elton John. Crocodile Rock, Tiny Dancer, Rocket Man, I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues... I could go on. You just can't argue with them IMO and I don't care if they're not cool.

Dragostea Din Tea by O-Zone.

Def Leppard's Photograph. Joe Elliot was so fit in that video.
