Five Guilty Pleasure Songs We Secretly Still Love

Music has a way of capturing our hearts and stirring our emotions, but sometimes - just sometimes - we find ourselves drawn to certain songs that might not align with our usual preferences.

These guilty pleasure songs, often considered cheesy, overly catchy, or outside our typical genres, hold a special place in our hearts - here's five we still secretly love... 

1. I Want It That Way" by Backstreet Boys:

"I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys is an iconic '90s pop anthem that continues to get attract new fans every day (let's be honest, the parents sing it to their kids when it comes on the radio). Its catchy chorus, romantic lyrics, and signature harmonies make it hard to resist singing along. Despite being labelled as a guilty pleasure, it's a great reminder of the undeniable charm of 90s boy bands.

 

2. Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears:

Britney Spears' debut single, "Baby One More Time," became an instant guilty pleasure hit with its catchy pop hooks and memorable chorus. Despite its bubble gum pop image, the song remains an iconic guilty pleasure that transports us back to the end of the 20th century and embraces the unabashed fun of early Britney.

 

3. "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and The Waves:

"Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and The Waves is an infectious guilty pleasure song that exudes pure joy and optimism. Its upbeat melody, catchy hooks, and uplifting lyrics make it impossible to resist singing and dancing along. This guilty pleasure anthem brings a burst of sunshine to any playlist!

 

4. "MMMBop" by Hanson:

Hanson's "MMMBop" took the world by storm in the late '90s with its infectious pop sound and earworm chorus. Despite its bubble gum reputation, the song remains a guilty pleasure favourite, evoking nostalgic memories and showcasing the undeniable catchiness of pop music.

 

5. "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley:

We had to mention this one. "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley became an unexpected guilty pleasure sensation, thanks to the internet's "Rickrolling" phenomenon. Its infectious '80s pop sound, catchy chorus, and Rick Astley's smooth vocals have given it a nostalgic charm that continues to captivate listeners.
