30 Days of Blogging: Day 20
Following the lead of fellow blogger @Kristoffrable I wanted to post my top 10 Guilty Pleasure songs. Now, I have to be honest here, I have MANY more then just these. In fact, I won’t play my phone’s MP3 player on shuffle in public because of the potential shame (I am an easy mark for music with a repetitive beat) ! So, for today, here are my song, perhaps later guilty pleasure musical artists, and then later, TV shows! And you know that I secretly sing to ALL of these in my car…
10) “Payphone” by Maroon 5
GAH! I LOVE THIS SONG! It’s so catchy! Adam Levine is smoking hot! (pun intended here, if you’ve seen the video). I have been known to channel surf just to find this song. Also, one of these days I will get the rap section down, yeah! (I had to stop writing this review to watch the video ha ha!)
9) “Call Me Maybe” Carly Rae Jespen
This one was a “write in” from my friends on Facebook. Does anyone think it is mildly stalkerish and slightly creepy! My kind of song! Also, I want her hair from the video…
8) “Love at First Sight” by Kylie Minogue
What made me love KM even more was knowing that my best friend, Jesse and her have the same birthday. Jess used to put up with me blasting her in our shared studio, and occasionally having a dance party! And seriously, tell me if you’re having a dance party that you wouldn’t have this song!!!
7) “Believe” by Cher
This one needs absolutely no explanation. Cher is the QUEEN of guilty pleasure music!
6) “Like a Prayer” by Madonna
I LOVED this song as a kid. Early Madonna is WAAAY better then anything she produces now. I remember knowing that the song was totally wrong, but completely awesome. Several of her early songs had to fight for this spot, including “Material Girl” and “Cherish”. Nothing is as awesome as when the first cords of this song hits though. +1 to nerdity because I will sing this at Karaoke if you buy me a drink or three (not an easy song to sing!).
5) “Living on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi
All Hail the only men on this list! You can’t make a post about guilty pleasure songs and leave off the Jovi! Not only is this song EPIC, but I love it when at parties with certain friends that they tend to sing it with wooden spoons and shirtless (all guys!). Good times! Anyone else missing that 80′s hair?!
4) “Toxic” by Britney Spears
Oh, quit whining now, you had to KNOW she would be on here! Ms Spears is my hate to love, secretly buying her albums in the dark of night from a less then reputable WalMart. I JUST CAN’T HELP MYSELF. Every time there is a new album, I try to resist to no avail. Why “Toxic” over all the others? Cause I’m Toxic baby, yeah!! Wait, what?!
3) “Blow” by Ke$ha
This song was AMAZING even before it became the theme song for “Burn Notice”, and then it became EPIC. She’s ape-shit crazy, and puts Unicorns in videos…need I say more? One has a eye patch?! EVEN BETTER.
2) “Telephone” by Lady Gaga f. Beyonce
This is my ringtone. This song also incites full on car dance party. I may know ALL OF THE WORDS.
1) “The Sign” by Ace of Base
This should be on EVERY LIST. I love Trashy European Pop. In fact, I would move to Europe just to get to listen to it first. I may know a dance to this. And no, you will NEVER see it.
