"Guilty Pleasure" Music?


Recommended Posts

I listen to mostly classic/hard rock, classical and Jazz (drummers). And even though I admit and like Patsy Kline and Billy Holiday I also secretly like Rosanne Cash. Back in the late 80's when Target was getting rid of their vinyl they had her first 4 LP's marked down to 99 cents each. I bought them cause I thought maybe I'd like her more than her father and I did, sorry not a fan of Johnny.

Maybe the only one but I am kind of partial to J.Geils and Alan Parsons Project.

I really like the "I Robot" album from Alan Parsons! The song 'I wouldn't want to be like you' is from the viewpoint of a robot..... The whole album is based on that concept.....

Grew up on hair bands, love nu metal. But sometimes I just have to hear some Peter Cetera, Richard Marx, Roxette and the like.

A couple things.

German Schlager Music. I can't understand most of the words, but I like it.

Sea Shanties too.

Normally I am a Country Music, 80's Hair Metal fan with a real interest is Def Leppard and Krokus.

But then there are these....

Duran Duran's "Rio" album is my go-to musical guilty pleasure. Honestly, it's a great album from start to finish but as an 80's kid there's a certain stigma attached to being too into Duran Duran.

Yes, I love a certain singer, but as far as feeling guilty:

Regarding German schlagers, there's the 1968 East German teen comedy musical Hot Summer - fondly referred to over there now as the DDR's version of Grease, but it's really more like Beach Party. Lots of relentlessly catchy songs, including the opening number:

Lead actress Chris Doerk reminds me a bit of Gidget-era Sally Field.

I can't stand the sound of bagpipes. Well, I do like them in AC/DC's "It's a long way to the top....." I had to check this video out mostly because of the girl but I kind of like it. Sort of a Trans-Siberian Orchestra take on the sound of bagpipes.

I had a neighbour learning to play the pipes a few years ago. I moved

I mostly listen to rap, but ac/dc is the music i grew up with bfore rap. My guilty pleasure is the spice girls, I took my little sister to see them live when she was ten and it was one of the best concerts i've been to

Suspicion - Terry Stafford.        Even though this song came out a year before I came along, I can't help but like this track.

Right there with you. There was girl in jr. high that I liked quite a lot and Duran Duran was her thing. So I listened to it and found I liked it quite a lot. Still do. 

Also, my mother is a huge Neil Diamond fan and that's what was played at home when I was a kid. I grew up with his music in the background. I've seen him live three times.
