    ELO. I get loads of stick for this. I only like them up to Out of The Blue. Discovery is ok but Lynne was startng to lose the plot and decended rapidly into the bad trip that was Xanadu etc. Early stuff is especially superb. Fav album A N W R.

    Who do you confess to liking - when your guard is down?

    I have an ELO best of album, if that makes you feel better.

    Admittedly, I like cheesy ambient music. Jonn Serrie, Steve Roach, Michael Stearns, etc. When I was nine years old I started listening to the program called Hearts of Space on NPR. That music still puts me back in my nine-year-old shoes, and back in touch with the ineffability of the cosmos (which it is so much easier to be terrified and fascinated by when you're nine).

    This is perhaps very specific, but I've gotten grief for being very fond of Jerry Garcia's singing voice.

    Wait a second...I think I...yep...you're making fun of my favorite music. Hey, my psychiatrist told me I should be honest about my love for the manualists. I guess now I know I should have kept that to myself.

    I have George Michael CDs and, when I am alone at home, I play them and sing along.

    Disco. And not in the 'Hey-it's-retro-so-it's-cool-to-like-disco-again' sort of way. I've always like disco music, from The Hughes Corporation (Don't Rock the Boat, Baby!) to Donna Summer (Bad girls...talkin' 'bout some sad girls..) and everything in between.

    Are you kidding? There's nothing to be ashamed of here. Prince is phenomenal.
