But...not very exciting.

It probably excited Steve Harley's bank manager.

Meatloaf's music (or should I say Steinman's music?) doesn't do much for me.

I'm not so much a Meat Loaf fan as I am of his work with Steinman. Meat's non-Steinman stuff is very hit and miss, with a hell of a lot of misses and songs intentionally written to imitate Steinman's style.

Now, Jim Steinman; he's a mad genius and a world builder. I like that his songs all take place in the same alternate universe. I know a lot of people don't like his work because it's so bombastic, campy and over-the-top, but no one does that like Steinman.

If Paradise By The Dashboard Light were the only song Steinman ever wrote, I'd think he deserves legendary status just for that.

Bat Out Of Hell is the greatest motorcycle crash song ever written.

This, I'm sure, will be the most unpopular opinion here....so we can just close after this...

I like Hootie & the Blowfish, Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, the Dixie Chicks & have (& love) all of Patti Scialfa's albums.

I've got some respect for Miranda Lambert-  Highway Vagabond is an amazing, amazing song and sounds nothing like new country shite.  It's got substance, great lyrics and great instrumentation and she at least co-wrote it.

David Hasselhoff's Looking For Freedom is one of my favourite songs.

Robbie Williams has made two of the best songs of all time and has overall done a lot of really good music over the years.

Which are?

Here's another one of my 'I don't get' posts....

Van Morrison. Apart from Brown Eyed Girl.  Oh, and I like that Madame song.

Sorry :(

I dislike songs which fade to an indefinite end. One of the reasons I like live stuff is that unless there is a deliberate segue from one song to another (which I really enjoy), songs come to a conclusion.

And he tries hard to push through his OCD when fans want to shake his hand - he at least gives 'em a fist bump I believe.  Some would get so anxious they wouldn't be able to do that much.

Sorry, but Angels is a song that clearly didn't have enough thought put into it.  A "That'll do, I'm off to the pub now before it closes" song.
The lyrics do not fit the music, and don't make sense.  It needed more work.

That song is mainly about the melody for me. It's full of great melodies with the highlight being the beautiful chorus.

I really like Last Christmas.  Still trying to top Silvia's Lady In Red tune.

I can do it.  I know I can.

Holiday Road by Lindsey Buckingham is the greatest 80's movie soundtrack song (and, perplexingly, one of my favourite ever songs period)

I don't get The Beatles.

The compilation album Number Ones is great and shows how they / George Martin could craft a pop song and raise the bar.  But, the adoration baffles me.  Every single album (Yes Sgt Pepper, Abbey Road, Revolver, I'm talking to you) has dross on it.  I revisited Abbey Road via the new remaster and skipped half of it.

There's no doubt that if they hadn't existed then the musical landscape would be entirely different, so kudos for that.  But, all that worshipfulness?  Nah, don't get it.

I agree with this. As a later poster suggests, context is perhaps everything and maybe you needed to live through the 60's to appreciate The Beatles fully, but as someone who was born in the 70's and started to seriously listen to music current and past in the early to mid 80's, Beatles music doesn't tower over all and sundry the way their reputation suggests when you listen in a hindsight manner.

I'll listen to Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street ahead of any Beatles record. I think Gimmie Shelter and You Can't Always Get What You Want are better than any Beatles song.
