Guilty pleasures..lets not go there, too many to list.

Let's see, all of those mushy Bon Jovi songs. I liked 'I woke up in love this morning' by David Cassidy too. There was one really cheesy song called Apple Eyes by Swoop, but I think since the interenet that song has fallen of the face of the planet (it's probably best that way too).

And the Hairspray soundtrack.

I'll leave it at that, because I do get embarrased about it!

Good thread !! This has opened up a can of worms but on the pop front there are some guilty pleasures, this one sprang to my mind when i read the topic !!!

Buggles ...Video Killed the Radio Star, I have to say when the members of Buggles joined Yes soon after for one album I really liked that Yes Album without Jon Anderson called Drama, so that another guilty pleasure as being a huge Yes fan i shouldn't like this album without Jon...but I do and Tempus Fugit is the pick of the lot for me !!

Video killed the radio star

I'm NOT that guilty !!

I only liked the song ... never had any of their vinyl, cd's etc !!! :lol:

I know what you mean about Drama thoughl. I rather liked that version of Yes and saw a show on that tour. Excellent ! I never liked the Trevor Rabin "Owner of a Lonely Heart" Yes though.

I love 60s bubblegum and much of the 80s fag-rock....hehehehee.....

Plus...I LOVE the hip-hop I listen to...I don't know anyone my age that likes it..they think it's just all 'gansta rap'.....pffftt ! I even like Dr. Dre ... that's sorta gansta rappish I spose...him and Snoop Dog ! :D

Cool seeing Drame era Yes , I liked the rabin Yes, I think 90125 is a classic pop/rock crossover !! I noticed a few years back when Isaw the Wakeman/Howe Yes that when they did Owner of a lonely heart it was Wakeman that took the guitar solo :blink:<_<

Oh, "Wildfire"! Why?! Why did the horse break down his stall during a blizzard?! Didn't he know that the lady would run after him and perish! And the poor songwriter! Haunted by the lady's ghost! Oh, the humanity! :'(

How about "Please Come to Boston" by Dave Loggins? :'(

Or "Ode to Billy Joe"?

Or "Billy, Don't be a Hero"?

Or "Playground in my Mind"?

Sappy 70s tunes rule. B)

:lol: I know - the poor horse...:boohoo: Sorry, I had a moment. I have Ode to Billy Joe AND Billy Don't be a Hero on my Ipod :ph34r: Okay so I have many others but I've already shamed myself enough for the weekend.

Gotta love those cheesy 70s tunes!

I hope I don't ended up getting kicked off a Led Zeppelin board for admitting this but, when we're on a road trip, much to my husband's chagrin, I deliberately look for the local "Golden Oldies" or "Good Time Rock and Roll" radio station. I like to sing along with what I call "American Bandstand" music. My favorite guilty pleasures are the 60's girl group songs: - The Shirelles - Will You Love Me Tomorrow?, - The Chiffons - One Fine Day, He's So Fine, etc. :bagoverhead:

I love these type of songs, don't be ashamed :D Hell, I sing along to these type of songs everyday. :P

What song do you love that you are embarrased to admit ? When it comes on the radio in the car you sing it at the top of your lungs or hide the CD from your friends and only play it when you're alone. For me, too many come to mind, a tune or two from Air Supply ( I KNOW ! I KNOW !) or the Little River Band...but I'll have to pick two from Leo Sayer......" When I Need You" and for the runner up "More Than I Can Say". I'm really not ashamed to admit that I love these songs.....er...really. Your turn....

Oh God here we go....

I guess I must admit to being a sucker for this English pop song when I hear it in my car:

:bagoverhead:

but I always follow it up by playing Black Sabbath right afterward just to clear my head... I swear it

Yep; REO; "Riding the Storm Out" :) My ultimate guilty pleasure would be disco...anything from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack (whoops, "You Should be Dancing" in particular), The Hustle, or Donna Summer's "Last Dance".

And from the 80s: Wham!, Lionel, Tears for Fears, Howard Jones; and the soundtracks for John Hughes films (Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles, etc.).

:D
