Songs we'd never guess you love

Just so we can have a trifecta of song threads today. An example might be one of our Texas boys professing a love for Lady Gaga or 73ss454 loving anything but a 60s girl group

I first heard this song when I was in high school in the 1970s, when the feminism movement was roaring. The guys played it on the jukebox on purpose to see if they could "get a rise" out of us girls. No such luck.
I memorized the words back then and sang along without missing a beat, just to watch the guys cringe.

Official Challenge: A song you love that's not part of or inspired by 60s style music. Jazz? Classical? Country? Guessing not Lady Gaga, but I could be wrong.

Well, you asked... Not Lady Gaga, but close:



One of the most played songs in my iTunes.

SOMEBODY's got to post Lady Gaga. I don't usually like the modern stuff, but this one makes me smile and feel happy.

I literally like all types of music except most country, gospel or hip-hop/rap.

The Beatles are the greatest band of all time IMO (no surprise).

Radiohead is the most innovative band IMO (I suspect there is no one else here who would even listen to them). Some of their music is just awful (electronica phase), but much of it is incredible.

Well, you asked for '...you'd never guess.'

An all time fave of mine, and yes, I learned the hand and dance moves to perfection when the video came out.
