Your Guiltiest Guilty Pleasure.
Here are the staff picks:
Kevin Coyne: “Sashimi” – Keyboard Cathy
Look, here’s the thing. It started out as a joke. I was laughing at it. I swear. Then I started singing it to myself more often than I care to admit…until now.
Leeann Ward: “Gotta Be Somebody” – Nickelback
I have plenty of guilty pleasures, but my guiltiest guilty pleasure stands ahead of the rest. In fact, I feel so guilty about enjoying this song that I can’t even define what I like about it, but the fact is that I do, despite that you wouldn’t find any song like it in my iTunes.
Dan Milliken: “Working For the Weekend” – Josh Gracin
I honestly don’t experience much musical guilt, so I’m just going with what probably sounds the worst on paper. Gracin snarls his way through this perky 80’s pop hit, imbuing it with a weird, aggressive, kind of creepy sexuality. It’s strangely engrossing.
Any class I’ve built up as a music blogger probably just came crashing down, but I can’t help it y’all. I freaking love this song.
