    Leave a Comment

    Thanks to Catherine for sharing her guilty pleasure list with us, we enjoyed this one.

    Listen along on Spotify. 

    1. Maroon 5 - Moves Like Jagger

    I find it impossible to whistle, but I keep trying, like a game you’re just so close to winning. I pity anyone listening to me.

    2. Bonnie Tyler – Holding Out for a Hero

    It’s just so cheesy but I love it!

    3. Alice Cooper – Bed of Nails

    Another one that’s particularly good for singing along with. The kind of track that everyone likes when they’re about 13 and I’ve never grown out of it.

    4. Bon Jovi – It’s My Life

    Of course Bon Jovi is terminally uncool but this is such a good driving song for going on holiday!

    5. The Rasmus – In My Life

    Just realised I’ve got this whole ‘life’ theme going on here. Am I the only person in the country, or possibly the world, who will admit to quite liking the Dead Letters album?

    6. Lolly – Mickey

    Anyone who doesn’t like this song has something wrong with them. So terrible but so catchy!

    7.  Metallica – Enter Sandman

    Another song that gets so overplayed that it’s corny, and Metallica are a bit Marmite, especially since the ’90s, but I still unashamedly like this track.

    8.  Ricky Martin – Livin’ la Vida Loca

    Reminds me of one summer when normal people still listened to Radio 1 and this was playing all the time.

    9.  Neda Ukraden - Da Se Nadjemo Na Pola Puta

    This counts as embarrassing because I don’t understand a word of it. Cultural appropriation or just a love of cheesy pop music?

    10.  Elle king – Ex’s & Oh’s

    Can you tell I’m just a sucker for anything remotely catchy?
