This week’s theme came from my own little brain: Guilty Pleasures: Songs or Bands You Hate To Admit You Listen To. It was inspired by my husband, who is well known for blasting some stuff that gets some pretty weird looks.
I admit I have some things that I’m not proud of.
Like the fact that if I have ice cream I have to get something salty to go with it, like french fries or saltine crackers.
Or that I not only have to match my bra and underwear, they must also be in the same color family as the clothing I’m wearing.
Then there’s some of my music. You know what I’m talking about-there are certain songs that are like musical skeletons in our closets. Those groups or songs that you listen to and enjoy, but don’t want anyone else to know about.
So today I’m coming out of the musical closet and revealing to you some of my very own guilty pleasures… these are all actual songs and/or groups that I have in my music collection this very minute that I even listen to!
So go hide in your room and watch some of these videos…
I dislike Kanye West. However, there are a couple of his songs that I will admit to owning if torture is involved. This particular example has to do more with the amazing video than anything else…
Love Lockdown-Kanye West
And what better to follow a Kanye West song with than a Taylor Swift song? Make fun of her all you want, we own all of her cds. *AHEM* The males in the house own all of her cds. I just steal from them.
I really, really like this particular song.
What’s so embarrassing about the Backstreet Boys? Nothing, unless you’ve spent a lifetime trying to reject all boy bands. I didn’t like them when they were popular, I do now. Sick sick sick… This is one of SEVEN songs that I have SPENT MONEY ON, and listen to regularly when I work out.
I Want It That Way-Backstreet Boys
And *gag* I also own two Spice Girls songs. I bet you can’t guess what the other one is. Really, don’t try, k?
When Two Become One-Spice Girls
I am guilty of owning not one but three Mariah Carey CDs. I know, shameful. But on the other hand, it’s pretty awesome to belt one of her tunes out while you’re alone in your car.
One Sweet Day-Mariah Carey featuring Boys II Men
This last one I am so ashamed of having downloaded in the last month that I almost didn’t put it on here. But hey it’s catchy… and if that video with the light up private parts I’ve share previously didn’t offend you then this one just might.
Blurred Lines-Robin Thicke featuring T.I. and Pharrell
Come on, you’ve got some guilty pleasures too, I know you do! Feel free to share in the comments. Better yet, link up your post to My Skewed View, and tell her how pretty her blog looks when you’re there!
