In Response to Oh...Their Awsome!
[QUOTE]When you're with a group friends or in a party setting and subject of music comes up, is their an artist that you say to everyone you like, but you really don't. For whatever reason you're embarrassed to admit that you don't like them. This happen to me recently and I just went along with the group, they were talking about David Bowie and how great he was/is. I think he is a tremendous talent, but I never bought any of his music, or ever have the urge to listen to him.
If he's on the radio that's ok, but I never said "oh, I have to listen to some Bowie". For some reason he just never did it for me. Has anyone ever done this, or am I just weird? Which might be a whole other subject.

Interesting question, and funny, too. :D
It wouldn't embarrass me to go against the grain in a situation like that, but ... it might not be worth it, if you know what I mean.
I've spoken up in the past, and sometimes lived to regret it -- that's why I'm going to say it 'depends' -- I filter according to the situation.
Also, I'd never say anything if, for example, the person or people had gone to a concert and were raving about how good it was -- I wouldn't have to say I like the artist, all I'd say is, "wow, sounds like you had a great time" -- they'd never know my true opinion of the artist. :P
I'm telling you, there are times when it's more important (and easier) to be nice than to be completely honest. :)
