Poll: What is your closet-music? We won't tell. Promise.
*joolee* · 18 years, 4 months ago
I have a folder of 'Forbidden Music' with tons of N*Sync, 2gether, Destiny's Child, and other manufactured pop-ness. :) My ex-roomie and I even learned a dummed down dance to Bye, Bye, Bye. Yuck, my dirty secrets are out! :-\

"Punk-rock" is as close as I could get to alternative/modern rock -- for the Rochesterians in the crowd, I'm thinking "Zone Music."
Besides, who can lose with station ID's such as:
"Broadcasting from the 5th tallest tower in the country's 53rd largest radio market... huh, what? Oh, 54 now... isn't that impressive...?"
"We are Infinity Radio's biggest tax write-off..."

Neuromusic rules! Pinataland, Radiant Pig, Diana Froley 3, Bebe Eiffel. Real music with real instruments like kazoos and melodicas.

And don't forget B-Blush or Boister! Neuromusic and Eurotrash (Neurotrash) represent!
Altho. The question asked about "closet music." And I'm not ashamed at all of my neuromusic love. I am ashamed, however, of the fact that I know all the names of the guys in BSB and 'N Sync. :)

This is probably the best poll I've seen in a while... although the NASCAR and Pete Best polls are classy. I can say that I secretly listen to most of the choices (there's no dirty pop in my library), but my true closet music is the "pre-packaged for pop airplay" girl singers. It all started with Debbie and moved on to Britney and today's Avril obsession.
Punk and Proud! but a closet popster.
country's missing, right?
which...seems odd because it's a pretty major genre!
yeah, i left out an "other" category too. bah, sorry. i was at work, bored, and then i got busy halfway through making choices!!
Heh...for once, I wasn't looking for an "other" or a "none of the above" but an....um.....(*cringe)...well, something like an "all of the above." (*Ducks.) I mean...my "Songs I Should Hate" mix, which I love includes Britney (and Christina...and Mandy....) and N'Sync, tecno, punk, rap, hip-hop, Limp Bizkit........etc. I ended up picking boy bands, however, because I come closest to respecting them as musicians as well as enjoying their music...yeah, I know they don't write music. But some of them actually sing, and sing very well, and in good harmonies...so it's a lot like musical theater, which has its merits in my opinion.
Oops. I take that back. I respect punk rockers as musicians, too, more than boy bands. But I can only take so much of that punky vocal quality....so I tend to enjoy boy bands more. I should probably run away before I get smacked or something. ;)

Not that 'new punk' crap either. Gimme The Ramones, The Clash or the Sex Pistols - although I wouldn't call it closet-music exactly. I'm a fan of music from any genre as long as I think it has merit.
No category for 'lounge' either. Barry Manilow and Tom Jones types. :-D

Perhaps Eric Schwarts' "Come Out Of The Closet" would be an appropriate choice? ;-)

Punk! Dead Milkmen, to me at least, are the essence of real punk. None of this "pick up a guitar, turn it up to 10, hit some strings, and screech" crap. :-)
that's why i said "i'm a punk rock girl!" and to be fair, i put /boy. :D
i always think ramones/dead milkmen/sex pistols when i think punk.
w00t! i'll admit, i was torn by my own poll between punk and indie.
did you guys see the Stewart/Wil Wheaton rant? that was funny.

I like it all, and im proud, proud proud proud! *beats pot on head with wooden spoon*
Um...I have nothing to add after my subject line. Ahem. Thank you.

and as for pete best, i had it as a category, but, i thought the joke may be worn out :D

*AHEM* The best I could do to find a category called "PHISH" was Indie Rock. I suppose it MIGHT fit, who knows.
but is phish really your closet music? i mean, do you secretly belt them out in the car when no one is around?

The CD "Wild" is one of my favorites by them. :)

I love them! I remember them opening for Duran Duran in the late 1980s.
