We all have them, even though we try to keep them hidden from the outside world: songs we somehow feel we really should dislike, but which we secretly do listen to with pleasure. The sort of song you just know you'll be mocked over in your pub or by your colleagues, but that you secretly put on sometimes when no one's around...

What are your guilty pleasures?



Here's a few of mine:

Macarena - Los Del Rio : <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNsb4zP76gE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNsb4zP76gE</a>
was a huge hit during my wild years of early puberty, and somehow brings me back to those summer nights in the worryless days. Also, the girl in the long red trousers just looks hard to resist :unsure:

Life is a flower - Ace of Base : <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlHU2yGClJA&search=ace%20of%20base%20flower" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlHU2yGClJA...20base%20flower</a>
and Travel to Romantis - Ace of Base : <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U95m2Q51CbM&search=ace%20of%20base%20romantis" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U95m2Q51CbM...base%20romantis</a>
For the same reason basically. This CD was playing all the time during my holiday in Spain, the last holiday I really enjoyed before my psychological problems stroke. Hearing the record takes me back to those days in mind.

Sexy eyes - Whigfield : <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgSgHyKpnJM&search=sexy%20eyes" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgSgHyKpnJM...rch=sexy%20eyes</a>
Just a catchy tune, I don't even have an excuse to like this one :ph34r:

Dub i dub - Me & My : <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezwpOOvsJQ0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezwpOOvsJQ0</a>

Forever in love - Sylver : <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QenqTgnRkrA&search=sylver%20forever%20in%20love" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QenqTgnRkrA...ver%20in%20love</a>
Dance pointlessness. Still catchy somehow...

This is your night - Amber : <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiOLPhrdrPY&search=amber%20night" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiOLPhrdrPY...h=amber%20night</a>
Dito

The sun always shines on TV - A-Ha : <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3hbNTqL1G0&search=a-ha%20sun%20always%20shines" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3hbNTqL1G0...always%20shines</a>
You gotta love A-Ha somehow, you can't beat melancholy like that! :D

I want you - Savage Garden : <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjneqInqvdM&search=savage%20garden%20want%20you" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjneqInqvdM...en%20want%20you</a>

and two of which I couldn't find the video: "Anton aus Tirol" by DJ Otzi (reminds me of one of the few parties in my life that I actually enjoyed) and "Verdammt, ich lieb dich!" by Matthias Reim :ph34r:

Well i don't know if I have anyone right now, but a few years back I had a really horrible music taste...i liked Eminem and A1, I can't believe that now.. :(

another one: N TRANCE - Set you free : <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seUOWANJQOg" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seUOWANJQOg</a>
I should really not like this sort of music, but it has something holiday-esque. Nice girl as well :ph34r:

I wouldn't know, I haven't actually seen her but my mom said she looks exactly the same, just older.
