Your Guilty Pleasure

Recommended Posts

The machinedrum thread got me thinking.

 

What artists are a guilty pleasure for you? So you like Coldplay, do you?

 

Confession time. It's good for the soul.

Old drum and bass, complete with cheesy vocals (like Goldie).

As much as Shut Up and Dance - Green Man (rum and black mix), Human Resource - Dominator (joey beltram mix), Bass 305 (not necessarily in this category but similar),  certain cj bolland tracks, and a lot of other stuff I really enjoy is great to my ears, I recognize the potential for it to be viewed as extremely cheesy. There is obviously a ton of rave stuff that is very tasteful and timeless though like dj pierre, tons of Detroit stuff, etc.

I get out to the odd trance night with an old buddy of mine, zero fucks given.

 

Old Laibach is the shit, I will fight you. Though I am partial to a lot of shitty late 90s/early 00s "industrial". Weighing up if I want to see VNV Nation live next year. :catrecline:

Sasha - Xpander

System F - Lost in Space 

System F - Out of the Blue

 

I love those tracks. Takes me back to when I was a wee-kiddo first finding electronic music. My dad was big into rock and metal etc (we always played music around the house) so the tunes I was finding were just, I dont know, mine?

i feel like he's been unfairly blamed for a lot of the worst bits of 80s music, as if he personally had a hand in producing every shitty album. he was actually quite innovative (along with peter gabriel) and it's unfortunate that their studio experiments became mainstream cliches. or maybe not so unfortunate, as it lent a lot of character to the music of the time that makes it distinctive in retrospect. 

 

i feel similar about kenny g, who is actually a very skilled musician but became a joke as the sort of music he was doing fell out of fashion. it seems sort of cruel, although i'm sure he has a lot of $$ which eases the pain.

I like Moby a lot, even if all his music sounds the same, but it's a sound I like. I don't feel guilty about it though. I probably feel most guilty about enjoying this song.

Fucking yeah! I know what you mean, I think I've always been a bit of a closet goth.

Hah fuck yeah! Lush tunes. I'm kinda lucky to have Birmingham down the road from me, still quite the trance scene there (Sadly Godskitchen went bust, had a fair few decent nights with them, always a sound crowd).

I like Coldplay but after the single for Ghost Stories I stopped caring

 

Weird Al

 

U2 and REM's entire catalog (I have not heard Songs of Innocence though)

 

Disney OSTs from the 80s and 90s

 

Sugar Ray's album 14:59

 

this and some other cheese from the mid-00s before I found out about the 99% of other electronic/dance music out there

 

 

I am pretty tolerant of a lot of crap nu metal, alt rock, etc from the late 90s / early 00s for nostalgic reasons...that's partly why I found 0PN's G.O.D. so intriguing

Everything I do is intellectually correct and everything everyone else does that isn't what I do is intellectually questionable at best, and likely a guilty pleasure.

I agree with this, in theory, but irl there's certain music I would never tell certain people I enjoy. PC Music, for example. I dont feel guilty of course, but I'd never let my friends catch me listening to that

I guess true guilty pleasure would be like, I dunno, music you like that has moral issues attached

i.e. atmospheric black metal band from east europe with iffy sociopolitical leanings or iconography

or music made by convicted murders like big lurch or x-raided

or burzum

or fascist ambient lol
