The Carpenters, ELO and Marshall Crenshaw come to mind. Any others?
Marshall Crenshaw not hip?
Here are a few:
I got some Roxette moments...
Midge era Ultravox
Is Donovan hip?
I say: hell yeah!
Herb Alpert and the TJB
Captain Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters
Was it ever hip to like Billy Joel? I’ve always gotten flak from people for liking his music.
I’ll get my Oxfam greatcoat.
I’m almost 57 years old: I pretty much assume that if I like it or it’s my favorite—no matter what it is—it can’t possibly be hip.
He was kinda the Three Dog Night of his time. i.e. popular but the critics complained.
He's my favorite singer to Karaoke.
The Bee Gees.
I think some stuff is just thought of as "hip" eternally. i.e. Cream, The Byrds, Jeferson airplane/starship, etc.
I just looked up hip in the dictionary and there was a picture of Donovan so, yeah.
Falco! Unhip and sadly underrated.
blimey, this is too big a question.
basically, 58% of my collection.
and thats not including James Last.
They only count if you actually like them.
I was a huge fan. I absolutely love the arrangements. Then she got political and I unliked all the stuff I'd been streaming on Amazon and Pandora.
That was country in the days when if it had drums, it wasn't country.
Glen Campbell. Certainly wasn't considered hip back in the day, but has gained a ton of appreciation from many besides me as time has passed.
My music of choice has never been about being hip, not even in my teens in the 90s when I preferred to listen to current music by "rock grandpas", as artists that started out in the now so-called classic rock era were dubbed then. Hipness or coolness has always been a mere coincidence. I didn't care and still don't.
