What bands/songs are your guilty pleasure that is outside the realm of AOR/Hard Rock?

One of my is LETTERS TO CLEO from Boston, MA.

Got hooked on the song "Here & Now" from one of those 90's shows like Melrose Place.

Some of my other favorites:

There are many different artists from many different genres that I love. I wouldn't call them guilty pleasures. I know what you mean though.

Rap was new at the time and these guys weren't afraid to embrace the guitar. 

I've mentioned it before, but my first concert was RUN-DMC. 1987.

I know KarpetRydOFunk will be amazed, but these guys were a big part of my childhood.

from this year albums by Miley Cyrus & Lady Gaga are excellent. 

You should consider these statements before you type them as some people actually follow you up on this. I just like good tunes and I don't care what it is so I was willing to give both a go. Your pop recommendation last year was decent - some UK girl fronted band - forget the name, but I think it was pretty cool. 

Honestly, I thought these two were both awful. Miley Cyrus had some okay-ish pop stuff on it, but jeez she's got an unappealing voice. Just didn't enjoy the songs enough either. It was definitely the better of the two, though. 

I didn't even make it through the Gaga one - just a continuous dance track - where was the appeal in it? It's funny, I listen to this and immediately think of that movie with the sadness and country music and stuff. Good film. But the music on her new album is basically the exact kind of sell-out, manufactured garbage she finds herself making in the film before it all comes crashing down. Soul-less trash. 

I actually agree she's probably a decent talent, but I found this album to be something any single girl with a voice could record over a repetitive dance track. 

Anyway, to each their own. Not sure of my guilty pleasures - you guys can probably tell me better than me as I'm pretty cool with my likes. 

I'm ashamed and embarrassed to listen to any christian band, though, so I guess christian rock in general is my guilty pleasure. But it's not pleasurable, so I guess it doesn't fit. It's frustrating more than pleasurable, so I don't think I can answer this question.

sorry you dislike them, but these are my guilty pleasures after all.... not yours ;) 

I like several songs on both but to me Rain on Me and Midnight Sky are 2 of the most perfectly constructed pop songs I've heard in a long time.

I would also add Dua Lipa as well - I like virtually every one of her songs

Chely Wright is another. Country chick. She had 2 straight really good discs.

Dua Lipa is cool. That 'Let's get physical' song was a mainstay on my USB stick for the kids this year.

i don't know if I would consider Letters to Cleo a "guilty pleasure", I guess only because they're outside of AOR/Hard Rock and are part of 90's grunge era. I guess I like some Soundgarden,  The Sundays,Cranberries, Matchbox Twenty.... that would be along the same lines

now this is a guilty pleasure and it rocks in a different way :)

Baltimora - Tarzan Boy

    • Preordered. I believe there are two links to order. North America and the rest of the world.
    • I'm in Northern Ireland..so there is always something for one side or another to protest about and always religious...it's been a while since it was violent though,in my area the kids that are rioting don't even know why because they don't even know what the NI Protocol is or indeed the Irish Sea Border..its just an excuse for them to wreck,the Good Friday Agreement was 23 years ago and most of the people out rioting are in their early teens,they don't remember anything from those awful years before,its sad that my oldest son wants to leave this country as soon as he old enough because he hates it because of these situations...and I don't blame him,I feel guilty for bringing a family into it..but as I've said we've had 23 years of relative peace. This should be left to the politicians to sort...as you say everyone is remembering and talking about the violence but finding it difficult to determine why?  Anyway thats as political as I want to get and hope it stops and we can return to our normal everyday lives asap. Peace
    • Yip all 3...with Saints & Sinners probably being my fav  
    • Lady Don't Mind-Talking Heads
    • I can get the one I'm seeking, Bullets & Bones, their only label release, I'm kind of sketchy though, that's why im desperatly trying to find anything that I can hear, I want to know how it sounds, I would never pay alot of money for the sound the above song has, but supposedly B&Bs is well produced, and sounds good and loud, but i'm not blind ordering it, and it's the only one I have seen anywhere, I had a guy who was gonna sell me the debut back like in 2006 but I was high on heroine and coke, so I blew him off, Unchained I know sounds like shit, plus he wanted fucking a full bill for it, so that probably played into me blowing him off, but If you want me to get you B&B I will, I would wait to see if I can dig an Mp3 up first, let me know.
    • Now this is intresting, Brinker  were a short-lived hard rock band from Denton, Texas formed in 1985 at the University of Miami featuring guitarist Andy Timmons who later join Danger Danger. Their one and only album released independently in 1986 only on tape, produced by the band and David Rosenthal and is extremely rare to be found that most collectors are not even aware it exists, would love to get my hands on this...  
    • A must have album for all AOR fans...  
    • A must have album, Killer stuff...
