My Musical Shame--Reveal Your Guilty Pleasures Here!

Okay, this a thread where you can confess all those bands that any self-respecting U2 fan should by all rights despise. And yet. . .when no one is around, you take this disc out of it's hiding place in the Coldplay CD case, you surreptiously dial this tune up on your ipod. It's shallow, it's cheesy, it's blatantly derivative, it's unoriginal, cliche-ridden, and dammit you know you love it anyway.

You can include a particular song, a particular CD, or an artist. It can't be a song or CD that you bought once on a whim and never listen to. This needs to be music that you sneak into rotation on a fairly regular basis.

Here's my "musical shame."

Michelle Branch
Janet Jackson's "Design of a Decade"--esp. "Escapade", "Love Will Never Do"
Michael W. Smith
Poison "Every Rose Has It's Thorn"
Linkin Park
Van Halen
LFO "Girl On TV" and that one about how he hates this girl but loves her. Had a relationship just like that.
untold 80's pop and hair band songs including but not limited to: "Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake, "Heaven is a Place on Earth" by Belinda Carlyle (loved that weird tremor in her voice), all the Madonna stuff from the 80's, "Man in the Mirror" by Michael Jackson.


There I've said it.

Go ahead and laugh. And I dare you to post your own!

Kelly Clarkson is my main one. There are plenty of others, but I don't feel like committing virtual social suicide right now, so i'll refrain on mentioning those for the time being

Yeah, I'm beginning to think I must be kind of crazy. I'm fairly new here, not particularly well known or anything, and this could spell the end of any respect I might've had on the boards.

Oh well . . .

I think 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' is one of the greatest songs ever written.

I like that Kelly Clarkson song "Since U Been Gone." No shame in that. I also liked Hanson's MMMbop.

I'll admit it - that song is quite catchy...

Kelly Clarkson - Because of You
Michelle Branch - a few songs
A lot of 80's one hit wonders

If I had my iTunes readily available I could shame myself in public even more than I just have.

I actually like too much UK chart pop for my own good. Some I don't mind saying I like (Sugababes, for example, are fantastic) but I think I have no excuse for liking James Blunt.

The Sugababes are the best thing to happen to British pop in a long, long time
