    THAT, on the other hand , might just qualify as GP

    People try to make me feel guilty for these, but I refuse.

    Lady Gaga- all of her stuff. It is fun and I like her style.
    The Who- It's Hard. Yep, Keith Moon is not on it. Yep, it is different sounding. I don't care, every song is brilliant on the album and it has the added bonus of a lot of John Entwistle tunes.
    Adam & The Ants- First 3 albums. See the reasoning for Lady Gaga above.
    Robert Plant- Shaken & Stirred. A really strange and pop album for Plant, but I'll be damned if Robbie Blunt doesn't kick total ass on it. Not to mention Ritchie Hayward's drumming!

    As much as I loathe country music (and I do!!! It's probably one of the things about Unitedstatian culture - I'll accept "Americana" term in this case - that I dislike strongly), I still wouldn't call this a GP if I liked it...
    Maybe you haven't done anything to be guilt and shame.For a moment i thought you would say,Highwaymen are great

    Not even! That's a great album, one that seriously needs reappraisal!

    I actually think that's a really good album. There's one or two not-so-good Townshend songs (cough cough Athena, which is more interesting for the story about who the song was originally about then the actual song itself), but most of the record I rather like. It's no The Who Sell Out or The Who By Numbers, but for a band that was that far into their career, having just lost a key band member a couple years earlier, and were presumably already thinking of breaking up, it's not a bad record.

    There's only three Adam & The Ants albums. I've never actually heard the first one, so I don't know the music too well on that one. But I dug the quasi-tribal drums and Marco Pirroni's spaghetti western/spy movie guitar licks on the second and third records.

    Giorgio Morodor's soundtrack to Midnight Express. And some other stuff he's produced, like Donna Summer and his Sparks albums. I actually do hate the fact I like that stuff

    A lot of Giorgio's work is truly garbage but a lot of it is cool.

    Damn. I had passed on that LP on a visit to Wax Stax, and had intended to pick it up on my next trip to Coventry. I was crushed when it wasn't there.

    The Cowsills-Best of the Cowsills

    When I listen to music, it is my primary activity.

    Therefore, I only listen to things I really care about. No time to waste on guilty pleasures.

    But every once in a while, when I am on the computer, I will watch a few clips of 60's psychedelic pop, like: The Small Faces, The Lemon Pipers, The Electric Prunes, etc.

    What the hell... it's fun.

    Yeah, I'm not going to seek out a "guilty pleasure" for active listening. It's more of a, when it comes on the radio I won't change the station, kind of thing. Or if someone else in the car wants to hear it I won't veto.

    I just saw a documentary about The Cowsills on TV last night. Interesting story. I'm kinda wondering if I shouldn't investigate their music a bit.

    I was going to say that I don't have any, but then I saw some Mother Focus hate over in the Myths thread and figured I'd throw that in.

    I figure prog itself is a "guilty pleasure," since most people seem to turn their noses up at it.

    I listen to what I like and don't really care what anyone thinks, and my tastes are all over the place, without regard to genre. Maybe my whole music library is a guilty pleasure.

    That said, I doubt that most people here would dig Sarah McLachlan, Sara Bareilles, Jason Mraz, Coldplay, Sugarland/Jennifer Nettles, Dixie Chicks/Natalie Maines/Court Yard Hounds, Green Day, and My Chemical Romance.
