Let's air out our musical dirty laundry. Post three songs that are guilty pleasures for you.

Me:
1. 'Rock Me Amadeus' by Falco

2. 'Knowing Me, Knowing You' by Abba

3. 'Scenes from an Italian Restaurant' by Billy Joel

1. Tiny Dancer Elton John
2. The Girl From Ipanema Stan Getz & Astrud Gilberto
3. Sister Christian Night Ranger

While The Girl Ipanema is a classic bossa nova song, it has a certain kitsch value because of the various covers of it over the years.

Quoting LHMARK (Thread starter):
1. 'Rock Me Amadeus' by Falco

2. 'Knowing Me, Knowing You' by Abba

Nothing wrong with Falco. I've got that song and "Der Kommisar" on my computer (I need to track down "Vienna Calling")

As for ABBA, they're a guilty pleasure group for me.

In no particular order:

1. What a Feeling - Irene Cara
2. Mandy - Barry Manilow
3. Last Christmas - Wham
4. She's Like the Wind - Patrick Swayze
5. Eternal Flame - The Bangles

I only like most of these songs because I'm a fan of the 80's and because they're part of my childhood memory.

Crank up the bass and smoke those speakers!

Dancing Queen by Abba

Memories of high school ...


Electric Avenue by Eddy Grant
I worked at an ambulance factory in St. Paul in the early 1980's. Everyone on the assembly line would break into song and dance whenever this came on the radio ...

Air Supply

This reminds me of this story a guy told me from the time he lived in Washington DC. He claims to have brought Air Supply to his appartment, so they can perform for his then girlfriend on their anniversary. Of course, none of us believe that story.

Gosh yes! Killer pump-up-the-volume tune, along with most of Abba Gold.

I have so many but one is "You Should Be Dancing" by the Bee Gees
Ah, heck add "Tragedy" to the list too...

"Goin' home
I just cant take it all alone

Holding you, holding you
Loving you, loving you....

This has to be my all time favourite. The video is very powerful, emotional and in my eyes, one of the greatest ever, too bad you dont see anything like this anymore..

Dang 'Fly! We agree yet again! I *loved* Make It Big. There are not many songs better than Everything She Wants. And I loved Air Supply when I was about 12. I think I could still sing all the songs on that album.

My guilty pleasures:

1. Spice Girls - Wannabe
2. Anything Milli Vanilli
3. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby
4. Kenny Rogers - Ruby Don't Take Your Love to Town
