Subject: Guilty Pleasure

Written By: Snoopygirl on 12/16/06 at 8:56 pm

I decided to post in this section because it can be from any decade and you can list more than one.
Who is your secret musical guilty pleasure? You know the artists that you love to listen to that you don't want anyone to know about? Or maybe people already know your favorite.

Mine is KC & the Sunshine Band. I have loved them since the mid 70's. Maybe that's why Get Down Tonight is one of my all time favorite songs.
I also love 70's music from the cheesy one hit wonders to the hard rock of that decade.

People don't know about my love for KC but they do know about the 70's music tho. My niece thinks that music is " icky".
Oh well, she's 17. She doesn't know good music. ;D

Sorry if this has been posted before.

Ok, ok, I admit it. I like The Partridge Family.


Several years ago, I was with one of my best friends in a grocery store. We were trying to "one up" each other:

Me: Well, I have the Partridge Family.

My friend: Well, I have the Bay City Rollers.

Me:  Well, I have Neil Sedaka.

My friend: Well, I have Shawn Cassidy.


This went on for awhile trying to come up with the most cheesiest music we had in our collections, making it sound like we were so proud to have them. Meanwhile, all around us, people were laughing (we laughed when we got to the car).

The British pop group Steps.  They existed from the late 90s til around 2001.  They went unknown here in North America, but being a follower of the UK chart, I discovered them.  It was cheesy teen pop music, but it was simple pop songs that are (as Philip Eno would say) "pleasant to the ear"

Back in 1999, I was such a geek, that I made a website about them  :-[
The website still exists, which is quite surprising since I lost the password, and haven't been there in over 6 years (the picture links still work, but the multimedia ones are broken)  ;D

ok, my guilty pleasures:

Cheesy,sappy love songs by just about anyone..

Artists that I consider a guilty pleasure are
Barry Manilow
John Denver
Olivia Newton-John (her sappy love songs are the best circa 1970s)
Neil Diamond

And cheesy chick flicks...when I'm feeling down.. My estrogen kicks in and I break out Steel Magnolias, Terms of Endearment, Stepmom, anything that will make me laugh and cry at the same time...

About Last Night , Last American Virgin.. oh and GREASE!!!


Oh and tv...

I own every season of Dawson's Creek on DVD.. and I particularly like to have Dawson/Paceythons when I'm sick with a cold or something and camped out on the couch with my Vicks and Orange Juice.


Food Guilty pleasures...
well this is sick.. but I crave chocolate around 'that time of the month' .. So I'll buy a tub of Milk Chocolate ready to spread frosting.. and when PMS kicks in... I treat myself to a spoonful of frosting. It usually does the trick.. and it works.. you can't eat too much of it cuz it's so rich so usually a spoonful is just enough.   ;D

Roxette
Paula Abdul
Belinda Carlisle
Wilson Philips
Heart

And I guess maybe Wham! is another guilty pleasure.

But probably my biggest guilty pleasure of all is that I used to like that Jason Donovan song "Too Many Broken Hearts" from 1989! That's just so embarassing!  ;D

You've actually answered your own question. A guilty pleasure for one is not for another. What makes it a
guilty pleasure? when it's outside the normal likes of an individual. I am heavily into progressive rock of the
70's, heavy metal and some goth rock.I have a deep disdain for 80's music, so for me, Tears For Fears is a
guilty pleasure.

You say you hate it, but you keep listening.  That's the essence of Guilty Pleasure.

Between the parted pages
And were pressed in love's hot, fevered iron
Like a stripe'ed pair of pants


What's not to love?

The difference between the Partridge Family & the Brady Bunch is the fact that the Brady Bunch are really singing. With the Partridge Family, it is only David Cassidy & Shirley Jones who really sing.

I recently seen that episode on MeTV. In fact, ever since MeTV started carrying the reruns of that show, I've been watching it for fun; often times if they're on the road I try to see if I can figure out where it was filmed.

Some of us have guilty pleasure TV shows as well.

For me, that has included certain Disney Channel shows that were on from 2005 until about 2011 or so.

Those chips are not spicy at all. A lot of chips in bags that are so called "spicy" are very, very mild and I can't stand it so much when food products lie to you like that. I can handle all kinds of real spicy foods. I remember that so called "ghost pepper" sauce Wendy's had for a limited time and it was nothing like the pure natural ghost pepper that's really spicy, and they watered it down and made it so mild. Real spicy foods are when they don't mention the word "spicy". Try certain wings or food dishes at 5 star restaurants, special habanero or buffalo sauces, jerk wings from a Jamaican restaurant, fresh jalapenos, fuego flavored taki's, or any other products that doesn't try to exploit the word "spicy" so much. You'll find real spicy foods that'll burn your tongue, make you sweat, and make your nose runny for sure.

The Suite Life series was really good, I don't really know if I'd consider that as a guilty pleasure, but for your age at the time I can see why. I enjoyed Suite Life of Zack & Cody seasons 1 & 2 which was the show's prime. Season 3 of the original series and On Deck weren't for me because I thought they weren't funny anymore as they got older. Overall, I consider Suite Life as the last good series Disney Channel had. Wizards of Waverly Place was like a teenybopper Harry Potter sitcom, I thought it was so cheesy. Nothing special about Sonny With A Chance from what I heard.

That's normal, I know a lot of people who don't like Doritos either. In fact, it's 50-50 when it comes to people liking Doritos or not. I enjoy the flavoring power and that corn chip bite mixed together. I know some people who just want natural Tostitos chips dipped in their own salsa or cheese dip instead of Doritos with artificial flavor power. I find Lay's and Sun chips to be enjoyed by a lot more people.

Yeah, I thought it was good too... but given that I was in my 20s when it started, I still found it interesting.

Likewise, during my preteen years, there were certain cartoon shows I loved watching. (One year I decided to give them up for Lent because I felt I was overwatching them.)

Hmm, this show is better than I remember it. I can't deny that there are a lot of funny episodes, I liked the one where the little boy (I forget his name) had to clean his room.

I think I might've appreciated this sitcom more if it weren't for the toy fad that came along with it. My sisters bought way too much Hannah Montana toys, blankets, clothes, set their wallpaper to Hannah Montanna etc. It was driving me nuts!  ;D
