Guilty Pleasure Song

As the thread says. What song do you like even if it's not of a genre you like or would admit to liking. Generally I like rock and metal that's it. But every now and then something comes along that gets stuck in my head.


Runner ups would be Rasputin by Boney M and Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush.

Boney M were a fake band. Couldn't dance or sing. I think one of them could sing.

The manager or something like that was behind the Milli Vanelli lip synch scandal.

The band had four members. In the 70s, their studio recordings were done by two of the ladies, and their producer doing vocals. In live concert, the four members performed live - not lip synching.

There clips online come across as lip synching. I knew one of the ladies could sing well, the rest of the band not as good.

Still damn catchy either way. Ra Ra Rasputin lover of the ......

My Russian lecturer at uni decided to play "traditional" Russian folk song and it's been stuck in my head.

Listen to the video and it pops up when you let you tube play so I have Kontrust, Eluvietie, Therion, 90s grunge and metal etc playing and the Rasputin plays.

Wife gives me funny looks. This
to Rasputin.

Dude, it is from the 70s. Pre-MTV. Yes, lots of things on TV were lip-synched, due to technological limitations of the day. I was talking about live performance, like in concert.

The clip you have there looks like it is from TopPop - a Dutch TV show. Their main approach was to have acts mime to their recent top recordings.

Wasn't my clip I watch a different one.

Some genres don't agecwell and people are kind of wtf were we thinking.

Disco is one of those genres, Nu Metal would be a more recent example.

Boney M were no more fake than many studio bands, but the four leads were primarily a stage performance,

the male vocals in studio was not the stage performer.

And all that because besides Rasputin I also like Boney Ms “Plantation Boy”, “Ma Baker” and “El Lute”

Note I don't like studio type bands.

Boney M is stupidly catchy though. Better than a lot of bands. Give me Boney M over Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, Take That etc.

Santa Claus Lane by Hillary Duff.

As a Toys-R-Us employee until we went out of business summer of '18, I spent ALOT of time listening to this each Christmas season thanks to our in-store music.
From 2002 - 2017, starting Nov.1st - Christmas Eve, it played on average about once an hour (depending upon the exact mix each year).
Now consider that between those dates I'd be spending 8-12 hours a day, 5-6 days a week, in my store....

Hmm. Maybe I don't actually like the song. Maybe I've been brainwashed.


Nah. I like it.
