As a blogger, I feel like I can’t hide anymore — guilty pleasure songs are by nature songs that you don’t advertise your affection for. But it would be cruel of me to keep these gems to myself, and you likely can’t resist them either. So here it is, howiGit’s tell-all of my Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Songs. So what exactly is a guilty pleasure song? Ask yourself this one question — would your high school bully make fun of you for listening to it?
Don’t hate; celebrate! (I felt I needed a cheesy phrase to capture the essence of this post, I apologize) Here we go…
1. Meredith Brooks — I’m a Bitch
It feels so good to say it. Play it loud. This one only beat out #2 because I’ve been belting it out for longer.
2. Katy Perry — Firework
I’ve never wanted to be anything else. I love you Katy.
3. Alanis Morisette — Ironic
My favorite song in third grade (in contention with TLC’s Waterfalls), who can’t relate to 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife?
4. Katy Perry — Teenage Dream
Another great video. Katy is dreamy.
5. Savage Garden — Truly Madly Deeply
Pretend you didn’t read this one.
6. Coldplay — Fix You
Was I broken?
7. Miley Cyrus — Party in the USA
Gotta love the energy Miley is bringing.
8. Phil Collins — In the Air Tonight
He’s a weirdo, and I’m not sure this entirely fits “guilty pleasure,” but this song does something for me.
9. The Cranberries — Zombie
Watch the video.
10. Kelly Clarkson — Since You’ve Been Gone
Kelly had to sneak on here somehow.
That’s it — now that I’m sufficiently embarrassed I’m off to burst like a Firework and Party in the USA. I’m sure I forgot a ton of great songs, so feel free to send your favorites along.
