Music Guilty Pleasures

A guilty pleasure is something, such as a film, a television program, a piece of music, or an activity, that one enjoys despite understanding that it is not generally held in high regard, or is seen as unusual or weird. For example, a person may secretly like a film but will admit that particular film is poorly made and/or generally seen as “not good”.
It can also be used to refer to one’s taste for foods that are considered to be advisable to avoid, especially for health reasons. For example, coffee, alcoholic beverages, and smoking are considered by many to be guilty pleasures.


Guilty pleasures, we all have them. But do we admit it? My husband and I used to watch “Dancing With the Stars” every week. One of my favorite shows was the one that would make use of the celebrity’s favorite guilty pleasure music. If I had to choose just one favorite, it would be the theme song from the Perry Mason movies.

Military Tattoos

Another favorite “Guilty Pleasure” is watching Military Tattoos. I was in the band during my Junior High and Senior High School years. I enjoy watching the intricate patterns being played on the field. I may not enjoy listening to a solo Bag Pipe being played, but I definitely enjoy watching the combined bands performing!


My newest guilty pleasure is a piece of Spanish style guitar. This style is also called “Flamenco Guitar.” The name of the guitarist will startle a fair number of people because you just wouldn’t expect this player to display such skill. The piece is called “Obsession Confession” and is played by none other than Slash of Guns and Roses!

So, What’s Your Guilty Pleasure?
