Guilty As Pleasured

Local bloggers have been challenged to post their musical guilty pleasures. I used as my database a series of five CDs I burned a few years ago. These contain songs for which I would not go out and buy the whole CD, but still kinda wanted around. This was done just barely pre-iTunes so, yes, I stole them (cuff me and take me away).

Anyway, here are ten (in no particular order) from those CDs that I am mildly embarrassed to admit I wanted:

1. Adam Ant – Desperate But Not Serious
2. Stone Temple Pilots – Plush
3. Devo - Mongoloid
4. Van Halen – Unchained
5. Duran Duran – Waiting for the Sound of Thunder
6. Marshall Crenshaw – You’re My Favorite Waste of Time
7. Quicksilver Messenger Service – Fresh Air
8. Procol Harum – Conquistador
9. Veruca Salt – Volcano Girls
10. Elastica - Connection

Now, here are ten songs I make no apologies for that also appear on my 5 CD set (again, in no particular order):

1. Patti Smith – Dancing Barefoot
2. Nirvana – Man Who Sold the World
3. The Yardbirds – Shape of Things
4. Opal – Northern Line
5. Smithereens – Blues Before and After
6. REM – Don’t Go Back To Rockville
7. The Smiths – How Soon is Now?
8. The Ramones – I Wanna Be Sedated
9. The Dream Syndicate – That’s What You Always Say
10. Jimi Hendrix – Voodoo Chile

I think you should move Stone Temple Pilots, Veruca Salt and Elastica to the "good" list, and move The Smiths to the guilty pleasure list.
