Guilty Pleasure Music

What's Hot
I like pitch modulated songs sped up to sound like Chipmunks.



I also like;

This video made me appreciate the O' Bar in Soho when I saw the video years later and recognised the bar.
I liked this song when it came out.

Any 'guilty pleasures'?

Also, another one for me.

  • I love this song too;

    New Jersey/Seaside Heights in Ocean County near Toms River is fun.
    So much so I once recorded;

    (Which though it's an Amazing rebuild of  broken Samick built Epiphone with all new American electronics from @FelineGuitars - this guitar still doesn't have that 2014 Gibson VOS 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Neck Profile I crave).
    Fine guitar however.

    Not sure she counts as a guilty pleasure,though she does seem to appeal more to young females,rather than middle aged blokes,but mine is Lourde.

    These performances,to me anyway,are absolutely mesmerising.







    In my life,why do I give valuable time to people who I'd much rather kick in the eye.

    I've mentioned this one before,but it's probably my biggest GP.

    Olivia Newton John - Hopelessly Devoted.

    You would struggle to find better written songs than "West Coast" or "Confide in Me" respectively... both are very talented women with some superb songs.  I actually hate the term "pop song" to describe them, as if they are in some way less worthy than some other acts because they weren't formed down the pub!

    I've always had a thing about Girls Aloud, "Wake Me Up" has a totally killer riff on it.  Their songwriters just seemed to have free reign to do anything as long as it was good.  A bit like the best of new wave, IMHO.

    Sound of the underground is a fairly catchy pop punk tune that seems quite well written.  I realise not guilty pleasures but I am constantly mocked by my friends for listening to the carpenters (mainly due to my wife) dolly parton, john Denver and the like.

  • Unless you get your pleasures the same way Kevin Spacey (allegedly) does, I'm not sure "music you enjoy but some people think isn't cool" is anything to be guilty about in any case.  Other people often suck, life is too short to care what they think! :)

    I would say Carly Rae Jepsen, but she seems to be cool in indie circles now

    Barbra Streisand... Also Michael Buble.  A fair bit of unfashionable 80s pop.

  • McFly for me. Perfect pop punk, but somehow not what a guy approaching 40 should listen to.

  • I can't see myself ever feeling guilty for liking music.

    Especially not for a stone cold classic like These Boots Are Made For Walking.

    It is rather good,isn't it @stickyfiddle ;

    I think guilt is probably the wrong word.She's just completely different from anything I usually listen to.My musical taste is definitely softening as I get older.

    On a slight tangent,has anyone else noticed how much Taylor Swifts new material sounds like Lourde?Same producer,I think.

    Greatest form of flattery,and all that.

    I agree that the term Guilty Pleasure usually seems to mean 'not considered cool.' So in that vein I'm going for Abba. I have a cd box set of everything they ever recorded - every album, single, b-side and rarity. And I love it.

    I must confess to really liking 2 Little Boys by Rolf Harris. 


    and on a more serious note, Abba are totally cool. Fantastic song writing skills (yes, the lyrics are a bit kitcsh, but the musicianship is top notch) combined with 2 fantastic singers. What's not to like.

    I'm not locked in here with you, you are locked in here with me.

    Agreed on both camps - the first album is perfectly produced (and by the same guy as Carly Rae Jepsen's last album)

    for me it usually follow a break up or some intense situation. like part of an 'emotion lag'.

    days, weeks, months later, you think you are sorted out and over it and apparently back to your fabulous old arrogant and reckless old self, listening to all the cool and sussed things you usually listen to...

    then suddenly, when you least expect it (on the cab radio that takes you to the station, or background music in a shop, etc) something totally anodyne and usually far too-obvious for you to ever normally be interested in comes onto the radio and you just go.
    tears for england and you end up going to bed for a week.

    and it's so often one of these kinda songs and not the stuff i usually listen to that sets me off.
    it's a really weird phenomena. but that's where most of these originate for me.

    maybe other people know what i'm talking about. 'trigger songs'.

    So here goes

    Bee Gee's
    who I hated in the 70's with a passion now I hear them for the beautifully crafted songs they are.

    Lana Del Rey
    any one who writes the lyric "you fit me better than my favourite sweater" and a host of lyrical indulgence gets my vote.

    Any Philly Soul from the 70's Gamble & huff
    well crafted pop at its best again hated it in the 70's

    Land finally the set C lol did at Daryl House it has a million hits of which at leat 1/4 are from me all the songs are great and the band is just on the money.

    My tastes are so record store geek that I have no problem admitting I like pop music like Destiny's Child, Kylie etc.

    I'm more embarrased to admit that I love U2's Joshua Tree and Pop albums because everyone thinks Bono is such a tosser.

    That's only because he is.

    Doesn't mean he can't make good music though ;)

    Now we’ve found out he’s a tax avoider perhaps everyone was right.

    The questionnaire for those at the top of our society, be they entertainers, moguls or elected officials obviously runs...

    Are you?

    A: A tax avoider?
    B: A sexual predator?
    C: Both?
    D: Neither?

    Answering D results in instant rejection of your application.

    Had to find that one!

    Classic. Canned Heat did appear to have Ron Jeremy in their line up on those photos.
