    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?

    It took us some time to get this list, but we finally have this guilty pleasure list from Ash, who heads up our distribution team.

    Listen along on Spotify

    1. James Blunt - You’re Beautiful

    This is a great song and anyone who says other wise is lying to themselves, but apparently isn’t cool to like Mr Blunt.

    2. Shaggy – It Wasn’t Me

    I know it’s a ridiculous song about a guy giving terrible advice in the wake of someone’s girlfriend catching him cheating on her – but what a hook!

     3. Ronan Keating – When You Say Nothing At All

    The original version of this track by Keith Whitley is awesome enough, add Ronan Keating’s voice and you have pop ballad perfection.

    4. Avril Lavigne – Complicated

    Why d’you have to go and make me liking this song so complicated?

    5. Pokemon Theme Song

    Even though it’s a 90s kids TV theme song, it is amazing.

    6.  Justin Timberlake – Rock Your Body

    What a breakdown section!!

    7. ATC – All Around The World

    Once you hear this song it is stuck in your head all day. Once I hear the infectious chorus line of “la la la la la” I can’t help but sing along!

    8. Aqua – Dr. Jones

    A classic cheese-fest of a song, I have fond memories of listening to this song on cassette via my Bart Simpson branded Walkman. I even had to listen this in secret back then though as I knew I shouldn’t really like the song as much as I did.

    9. Cher – Believe

    While I absolutely love this track, I despise the amount of tracks that has followed in Cher’s footsteps in using Auto-Tune. Nevertheless This song is a brilliant Dance track that is damn near impossible to not sing along to!

    10. Justin Bieber – What Do You mean?

    Probably the worst admission of all, but I give no apologies for it. Its a great song!
