Weekly survey: Artists you loved when you were younger but are embarrassed about that now.

We all have regrets about how we misspent our youth. That bad haircut. Those terrible clothes in which you wouldn’t be caught dead today. That relationship you thought was true love but turned out to be a crazy person nightmare.

What about music? Surely there’s an act or two you used to love when you were younger but are loathe to admit it now.

I know this is a touchy topic because as we evolve, many of us develop the attitude “Respect all music, listen to what you like.” But there are still memories of music tastes past that may make you shudder.

For example, I was once besotted with pre-Saturday Night Fever Bee Gees, specifically their Main Coursealbum from 1975. For reasons that I can’t fully explain, a single note from that album (“Jive Talking,” “Nights on Broadway”) now sends shivers of shame through my body. Illogical, I know. But music can have deep psychological effects on a person that can last decades.

Perhaps you had a tween crush on David or Shaun Cassidy. It could be that you spent far too much money on disco records. Or that at one point your favourite song was “Undercover Angel” by Alan O’Day.
