Music Monday: Guilty Pleasures - A Belated Post

Forgot to post this yesterday, so here it is!

I must admit when it comes to a really good and catchy song, you'll find me singing along to it, even if I don't like any other song by the artist. They're guilty pleasures and I know I shouldn't like the song because it sounds like every other song out there on the radio, but it isn't my fault! The artist made it really catchy and I'm a sucker for catchy music. So today's Music Monday, is a playlist dedicated to catchy guilty pleasures. Enjoy!

I have a confession to make. I love The Wanted. Yes, they're a boy band and yes, I should be past that boy band stage, but I just can't help it. They're music is catchy, you can dance to it, it makes me happy, I love their voices, and I have a crush on Nathan (who's one of the members). And not to mention they're British, which a definite plus in my book.

I have another confession to make. I really don't like country. Let me explain. Here in NYC, we don't listen to country. There's not one single country radio station here. Maybe in upstate NY they listen to country, but around here we don't. On the radio we have Top 40, rap/hip-hop, and one rock station. We're lucky we have that rock station, or else it would be just Top 40 and rap/hip-hop. Anyway, I don't listen to it (anymore); I didn't grow up listening to it. But there are a few songs that I like, such as Lady Antebellum's Friday Night and I Need You Now and some Carrie Underwood. To be honest, I used to listen to it when I was younger. I was experimenting with different types of genres at the time, so I went through a country phase. I used to listen to the Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain, and...well, that's about it. That's as country as I get. Even back then I wasn't into it that much. I still like a few songs from the Dixie Chicks, but I don't listen to them as much anymore. And Shania Twain....I don't listen to her anymore. My point is, since I don't like country, it's a guilty pleasure.

Nicki Minaj's Starships....what can I say? It's catchy and I really really don't like any of her songs. But this one...I can't help it. It's a guilty pleasure! And the same thing with Chris Brown and LMFAO. I don't really listen to them, but Turn Up The Music and Party Rock Anthem are really catchy songs.

I have another confession to make. I actually like some of Ke$ha's songs. I like We R Who We R, Blow, Your Love Is My Drug, and Take It Off. I know I shouldn't like her, she can't sing that well anyway, but these songs are really catchy. And you know I'm a sucker for catchy/dance-y songs. It's funny though, at Warped Tour two years ago, I was talking to someone about her and I actually admitted that I listen to her. Someone else, who was walking by, heard that, said something to me, and I said "It's a guilty pleasure". So you see? She is a guilty pleasure. On a side note, my friend looks a lot like her. It's scary.

That's all folks! Hope you enjoyed today's Music Monday. Next Monday I'll be featuring The Lumineers. I think you'll like them.

Have a lovely day!


  1. Country is a total guilty pleasure for me! Guilty because it's not "cool", but I live in the South, so it's really everywhere around me here, hehe. Other than that? Classic rock! I prefer good folk music to anything, though.

  2. Oh boy. That Call Me Maybe song. I love it! My friends and I have had it on blast constantly for the past month! Nice pick :)



  3. pop is like guilty pleasure music for me because i'm surrounding by people that think mainstream music is "uncool". (i so don't get hating music just because everyone likes it!) i can't help it, if it's on top 40 radio, i love it. that goes for country too. but i live in the southwest, so it's the opposite here => five country stations, one pop, zero rock!


  4. I'm too old to like Demi Lovato..But I don't care..lol I love that song! And Remember December.. That girl can sing! Haha!
