5 Guilty Pleasure songs:
(Edited to include YouTube videos)

Yes, I'm finally doing it. Here are the five songs I uploaded under different names so that my hard-won indie cred wouldn't be stripped by my too-cool-for-school coworkers:

1. Sex Bomb - Tom Jones. Sex Bomb came out while I lived in Russia and it always makes me think of St. Petersburg. ...you can give it to me when you need to come along...

2. Get UR Freak On - Missy Elliot. I know every single word and have dance moves to match. This is what happens to southern sorority girls with too much time and JD on their hands. :)

3. Don't Stop. Believing. HOLD ON TO THAT FEEEEELIN'! You know you just started singing along with me. Question: Why does everyone say they hate this song but the moment you put it on the juke box, everyone is screaming away?

4. The Sign - Ace of Base. I first heard this on a girl scout white water rafting trip. I still love it just as much as that day.

5. Only Wanna Be with You - Hootie. Still one of the best songs when you roll down the windows on a blue-sky day.

I LOVE Sex Bomb! When I was studying in the UK, it was always playing in the clubs (circa, 2000). I have been addicted ever since, and RARELY heare it over here!!! Way to go! Great list!

Journey - a true guilty pleasure. I agree everyone groans, but still sings all the words!
