    Ok ok... we all have those guilty pleasures, the songs we love but hate to admit we love. Post em' here. For me... well, I really like that new Justin Timberlake song, 'Cry Me a River'. I also liked N*Sync's 'Pop' and No Doubt's 'Don't Speak'. Come on... just admit it. What songs are your guilty pleasures? As always, :bassist: on.

    "Rosanna" and "Africa" by Toto
    "(Don't You) Forget About Me", Simple Minds
    "Tour de France" Kraftwerk
    "Baker Street", Gerry Rafferty
    "Dream Weaver", Gary Wright

    I swear I'm not that old, either. hahaha

    I just can't get into ANY pop music these days. Just a bunch of soulless, ball-less suckjobs whose careers(and welcome) have been maxed out!:rolleyes:
     
  10. I'll ditto those.

    I guess I'll add:

    50 Cent - Wanksta
    50 Cent - In Da Club
    Nelly - Air Force Ones
    Missy Elliot - Gossip Folks
    Justin Timberlake - Cry Me A River (that beat is addicting!!!)
    Clipse - When's The Last Time

    I don't feel guilty about it, but I really loved Aaliyah's music. R.I.P

    Actually, now that I think about it, I don't really feel guilty about the above songs except the Justin Timberlake one.
     
  11. right now i don't have anything.. but I guess the Beatle's 'Love Me Do' can go inhere, although I'm not embarrised bout it! just don't anyone, ok?? :oops:

    Why would you be ashamed to admit you like a song?

    I love several of the ones people have already mentioned...

    Toto - Rosanna
    Toto - Africa
    Michael Jackson - Thriller
    Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal
    Beatles - Love Me Do.

    What embarassing about 'em though?

    Word!! I dig that song too. Yeah, it is called "Beautiful".

    It's much better than I would expect from Aguilera - it doesn't sound like your average teeny-bopper stuff. It sounds like it was written by a *real* songwriter, and played by musicians (not a sequencer).

    And her voice is really good on it.

    I think it just reminds me that I need to be told by someone other than my mom that I'm beautiful for me to believe it.

    I was talking with a teacher about that this morning, believe it or not. He (jokingly) reassured me. I'm ugly! :D

    Ace of Base - The Sign
    DC Talk - Jesus Freak (not really a guilty pleasure)
    Shakira - Whenever Wherever
    Commodores - Brick House
    ...I'll quit now.
