Have you all got any guilty pleasures? Music-wise of course. If you have a porn addiction you can go find somewhere else to talk about it but this thread is strictly dedicated to guilty pleasures in the music world.

I have found that in addition to good music – and I know you all know what I'm talking about *winks* – I have a few guilty pleasures.

One of those being jamming to the spice girls at sleepovers. Don't worry, I make up for it when I force my friends to watch AHDN and listen to Helter Skelter.

One of the other guilty pleasures is songs that give me a laugh. These are songs such as Single Ladies, My Humps and Total Eclipse of the Heart. It's hilarious to try and dance or be dramatic to them.

Another is I Love Little Girls by Oingo Boingo. It's funny and my friends think I'm strange when I show them. 

My other guilty pleasure is T.Rex. Although I consider this good music, many people beg to differ. Marc Bolan changed my life.

Thanks for your input, everyone!

PS. After I posted this I realised it was in the wrong place. Sincerest apologies, I am very sleep deprived.

I don't feel literal "guilt" over any tunes that I happen to enjoy, no matter how unhip! But I understand that the term "guilty pleasures" is a convenient-enough classifier that everybody knows what you mean anyways. So, let's just say that I enjoy a lot of mid-70s soft-rock milestones ("Afternoon Delight", "Seasons in the Sun," "Muskrat Love" etc.) and prog-pomp bands like Styx and Kansas and Prism. And would happily pick up a Celine Dion greatest-hits CD if I found one lying in the street.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Have to agree with this. I think it's a term for songs you like that other people tend to hate. Feels Like I'm In Love by Kelly Marie would be one of mine.

Celine Dion, though? Are you mad?

I would agree with you Joe, but I *do* have a Celine Dion CD… Dion chante Plamodon. I got it when I was studying French many years ago and I found it tolerable, and some songs are good. Not too much screaming. I hate when singers like her scream too much. the only exception is of course Barbs. I'll give you 10 Celine Dions over 1 Barbra Streisand.

 

My guilty pleasure in music would be 70s disco. My older siblings loved it. And 80s pop. I was totally into Madonna, Culture Club, and that stuff. I prefered British pop. It was awesome. a-hard-days-night-ringo-9

My guilty pleasure in music is definatly Broadway musical soundtracks. My iPod is almost loaded with them, as well as Beatles cd's of course. I especially love Barbra Striesand. I even have a cd of her's on my iPod.

I'm not sure if I agree that a guilty pleasure is defined as something you like that others "hate". But, here goes.

Frank Sinatra – there I said it – no guilt!

If you've never seen it, comedian Joe Piscopo did an outstanding imitation of Frank doing a rock & roll medley. It's about the only thing he ever did that made me laugh out loud. Skip ahead to about :50 in for the start of it.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Sinatra was great! I don't know that anybody in particular hated him (well, John did.)  But that clip was funny indeed Zig!

Wow, I am actually able to get on here from school. :)

I watch Hannah Montana on mute and do voice-over with my friends. It's hilarious and fun.

Not really a Guilty Pleasure of music, but sometimes I quote Glenn Beck a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

 

I listen to The Verve from time to time.

Oh my goodness you guys don't hate me but I know a whole Shania Twain album off by heart. Instead of listening to the Beatles, my parents played her CD anywhere and everywhere. Her music is my guilty pleasure hahah
