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

    • Awesome song...too bad these guys never took off.  
    • Yeah, there's only two "proper" Vixen albums. I love most of both of them... but there are fillers on both. But when they're good they're awesome. Second one was definitely a big step up in all regards. Good band in the day. 
    • Interesting. I will probably end up getting a vaccine as I believe our work place will be supplying them and we'll be more or less forced to take one. And I'll be completely against it, but I'll do it. Like I said above, I'm not against vaccines... but I am against being forced into something I don't consider necessary whatsoever.  I despise the whole mask situation, though, and would take 10 vaccines before having this mandatory mask nonsense ever raised in discussion again. 
    • Awesome new track from The Strike...  
    • Third track from the new album Just Drive - Part 1..... Love it.. Album out now on all usual streaming services.   Full Album...  
    • Such class. It's a real shame the industry turned on these guys. 
    • New album 'Let's Get Tropical' out this summer. From FB: CRUZHeeeeers.... come out to plaaaa-heeeeey! Kickstart the weekend with this sweet little something. By the end of March we will start posting videos, information and other stuff hyping up our Summer release. Why dontcha start with this one!   Teaser: https://www.facebook.com/cruzhofficial/videos/456723798858419
    • One of THE greatest albums of the genre. It's about as close to perfection as you can get. One of the few bands from "our" music to actually have a mainstream hit. "I'll See You in my Dreams" from Giant, "High Enough" from "Damn Yankees" and of course, Mr. Big's "To Be With You" received commercial success.  "More Than Words Can Say" also received great commercial success.  I'll limit myself to picking one track as a favourite. It's very difficult, but i've gotta go with "Haunted Heart".                        
    • Not a section I usually post in, but I was just reminiscing with some older Aussie Pop. These guys were quite huge at the time with several Pop/Dance hits. Pure Pop and very catchy.  The lead singer, Connie Mitchell is bloody gorgeous.  She was formerly the Lead Singer for an Aussie Pop/Rock band called "Primary". She was nice then, but she certainly went for full glamour with these guys.          
    • You're spot on about Skin from "Skunk". I posted this not too long ago. Her original is sensational, but I think Oliver may have her beat.
