Guilty Pleasures


Recommended Posts

I had a look for a thread on guilty pleasures, but could only find one limited to bands. I can't think of any bands I consider a guilty pleasure, but there are a couple of songs that spring to mind:

 

S.O.A.P. - This Is How We Party

Barry Manilow - This One's For You

 

Pretty shameful I know. :anon:

 

Anyway, does anyone else have anything to confess?

I haven't heard the original just the Cradle Of Filth (with King Diamond) version but that's great! :headbanger::tumbsup:

 

Classic Cliff, a truly great song IMO :bowdown:

Funny that this topic comes up today. Just 2 nights ago I found myself spinning Madonna - "Like A Prayer" (the whole disc).

 

Yeah... I know.... not very metal. But I dig it. :screwy:

 

Hell...Tonight I may even spin her self-titled. :rofl2:

Ray Of Light is a good album too.

All Out Of Love is an absolute classic! Nothing guilty about that (in my opinion)!

 

No offence, but I think you need to step it up - your selections are far too good to be guilty pleasures! I was truly embarrassed typing mine and could probably add some more shockers to the list as well...

:whistle:

I think I've confessed this before, and even though I'm embarrassed when I hear it, I like 'If I let you go' by Westlife.

Guilty pleasures eh.

 

I'll step this up a notch, just to name a few:

 

All For One - I Swear

Tone Loc - Funky Cold Medina

Roxette - Fading Like A Flower

Jewel - Hands

Bonnie Tyler - Have You Ever Seen the Rain

Faith Hill - Breathe

Dan Hill - to embarrassed to say which song

Taylor Dayne - I'll Be Your Shelter

 

I'm outta here, never to be seen again. Nice knowin' you all.

Yeah, if you're going to include Roxette and Belinda Carlise, I like quite a few of their tunes too. :)

Well.... It has now been 2 days since my original reply... and I haven't been :baneed: yet. Either I got a free pass on this one or Dan hasn't seen this thread yet.

 

I'm not even gonna mention what I'm gonna spin tonight. :popcorn:

Nothing wrong with spinnin' a little Madonna...Back in the 80's when she first came out I saw the video for "LUCKY STAR" & fell in love... :wub: But back then being the huge metalhead that I was I kept that secret in the closet for a long time for fear of peer retaliation :lol: . I bought all her 12" vinyl singles (which I still have), cd's, videos & even the SEX book....Oh & my favorite Madonna song is "INTO THE GROOVE"...

Well... I actually wasn't able to keep it in the closet. I actually went to see "The Virgin Tour". Talk about not fitting in...LOL. But I totally enjoyed the show. I think I have seen her something like 6 times.

 

"Into The Groove makes my top 5 beyond a doubt. OK... I better stop now. :unsure:

Dire Straits as guilty pleasure? C'mon, their first three albums are rock classics. Great stuff indeed.

    • Loving aspects of this. It's like a cassette tape, actually. I quite love most of the first half, but the second side balladry is a bit of a pass for me. The one exception being 'Smoking.' What a cool groove. I wasn't sure I was going to love it from the start, but man it's a cool song.  'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is an absolute belter, and I like the first 8 songs (except 'Time to let it go' and 'Don't go'). Good album with a very nice sound. 
    • This is out and it's very nice. Interesting how far removed it is from a song like 'Midnight in Miami,' but it's still very good. I do enjoy.  Heart Of Gold     -    Beautiful Dangerous 1    .    To The Blue 2    .    Headache 3    .    Patient 4    .    Bright Lights 5    .    There's A Difference Between 6    .    Leave Just Yet 7    .    Something That Lasts Forever 8    .    September Sunburn 9    .    Backseat Daydream 10    .    Hometime 11    .    Bad Habit 12    .    Co-Dependent 13    .    And Something That Never Ends 14    .    Time Spent Driving This'd be my favourite tune off the new album.   
    • These guys have a new album, with some very nice surprises aboard.  Hollywood Undead     -    Hotel Kalifornia 1    .    CHAOS 2    .    World War Me 3    .    Ruin My Life 4    .    Hourglass 5    .    Go To War 6    .    Alone At The Top 7    .    Wild In These Streets 8    .    Dangerous 9    .    Lion Eyes 10    .    Trap God 11    .    Happy When I Die 12    .    Reclaim 13    .    City Of The Dead 14    .    Alright            
    • Very, very safe. To be totally honest, I didn't find a keeper on here, but it's a solid album, all right on the verge of something a bit better. Nice, safe AOR. 
    • You sure? I could be wrong but I thought Ronnie's only contribution to this project, from the start, had been his vocals? Either way, the new album's more of the same. I don't dislike any of it, and I don't furiously love any of it either. It's all pretty nice. 'Riot' is my favourite on the album half because it's a nice ballad but also because I expected it to be some plodding songs about riots but instead it was a trick shot. Nice. 
    • Of Virtue     -    Sinner 1    .    Hypocrite 2    .    Sinner 3    .    Cold Blooded 4    .    Echoes Quick, pretty harsh but a cool EP for those who don't mind a scream or two-    
    • Another one I've mentioned before. Bummed it's only an EP (with two of the same songs on it) but Outsider Heart have released a delicious EP- Outsider Heart     -    Entertainment 1    .    Entertainment 2    .    Anyone But You 3    .    MONSTER 4    .    Crop Circles 5    .    Like The Rest 6    .    Crop Circles (feat. Brody) Sure I posted it before, but I love this song-      
    • Anybody out there loving the new album? So good. Pale Waves     -    Unwanted 1    .    Lies 2    .    Unwanted 3    .    The Hard Way 4    .    Jealousy 5    .    Alone 6    .    Clean 7    .    Without You 8    .    Only Problem 9    .    You're So Vain 10    .    Reasons To Live 11    .    Numb 12    .    Act My Age 13    .    So Sick (Of Missing You)      
    • Yeah, this really surprised me about the album. Weakest songs are the ones with her, but otherwise, I have to say I was really pleasantly surprised with this album. I am not sure I heard the debut and didn't know what to expect with this one, but I really enjoyed it.  'Need A Lil' White Lie' is such a killer opener. Elsewhere, I admit it's pretty one-dimensional, but as I've said in the past about things like this, it's a pretty good dimension.  'A Dream To Be Lost In Time' is a bit bland, but otherwise, from track 4 onwards I really enjoy the whole thing. 
    • I think I posted these guys before. It's not ground breaking, but they have an album out and it's pretty cool. Some really cool musical passages on it.   Sever     -    This Should Have Been a Better Place 1    .    '91 2    .    Red Room 3    .    Animal 4    .    Cold World 5    .    Empty Promises (feat. Christoph Wieczorek of Annisokay) 6    .    Closer 7    .    The Disease 8    .    My Dream, My Agony 9    .    Noise in the Trees 10    .    Do You Remember Me?
