MIXTAPE MONDAY: guilty pleasures.

I'll be the first to admit that the next couple of mixtapes these upcoming few weeks may not be everyone's cup o' tea. I'll also admit that the subject matter is far from something normally shared on this little ol' blog, too. What I mean by that is that below you will find some of the most memorable Top 40 songs to date... all things that I am reluctantly admitting to loving. Some of them are as recent as the past couple of years, and some as old as the very early 80s! These are songs that I also find to be a great workout mix. I'm not sure why, but they hype me up and put me in such a good mood. Yea... even that jerk Kanye. I'm sure there are a ton that I'm forgetting. Would you believe me if I told you I had a running list in my "Little Book of Ideas" of guilty pleasure songs?! I need to find that page!

I think this is a good playlist for wanting to just put some pep in your step. Work in an office and need some jazzy hands while typing? Plug in your headphones and play this little diddy. It always makes me want to get stuff done! So what if it's embarrassing!

Now... time for you to confess! What are some of your all-time favorite guilty pleasure songs?! (Really! I want to know! I probably love them, too!)


  1. haha, i love bugaboo too. One of my guilty pleasure songs is Freek-A-Leek by Petey Pablo >_>

  2. haha, i love bugaboo too. One of my guilty pleasure songs is freek a leek by petey pablo >_>

  3. Hahaha, some great classics on here! Love the upbeat theme - and I'm On A Boat never ceases to make me roll around in hysterics. It's the best when they play that song in clubs and all the netgeeks I know go mental (including myself).

  4. The two songs that stick out like sore thumbs (and are somewhat embarassing) in my music collection lately are Cee-Lo Green's "Fuck You" {it's just so unbelievably catchy!) and Sara Sara Bareilles' "King of Anything." I'm usually listening to nice music like Iron and Wine, Elliott Smith, and The Arcade Fire, so these two came out of absolutely nowhere, especially the Cee-Lo Green song, but seriously:


  5. Haha this playlist is amazing! I love Bootylicious, the Thong Song, Mmmbop, Oops I Did It Again, It's Tearin' Up My Heart, and Two Become One to name a few. I think y entire iTunes library is pretty much an embarrassment but I love it all!!

  6. haha i am loving this playlist! it's funny because one of my guilty pleasure songs would have to be Waterfalls by TLC which was the title of your last post! :)

  7. Prince is certainly a guilty pleasure of mine. XD

  8. I'm almost 23 and still in freakin' love with Backstreet Boys ........... Shh! That's not something I would admit to everyday :)

  9. Milkshake and Ridin' Dirty got me!
    Hahahahaha! You've got a great taste for Top music! :P
    For me, I've got a lot of guilty pleasure, specifically old Avril Lavigne, Hilary Duff.. not all, just a few from old CDs.
    Oh god, I'm so lame. :P

  10. I loved this playlist! Brings back some great memories! I forgot about some of those songs.

    My guilty pleasure is the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls. *so embarrassing to admit that!*

  11. hahah love these songs!
    OMG i was a tiny bit overly obsessed with Spice girls.

    MY Guilty Pleasures:
    Justin Bieber - Somebody to love
    One Twelve- Peaches n cream
    Pitbull- Hey baby
    I want to be your lady -Inoj

    hahah. yeahhh ♥


  12. LOL! I love the chamillionaire song! um some of mine include party in the USA, Waking up in Vegas, MMMbop, steal my sunshine by len, six underground by the sneaker pimps and flagpole sitta by pj harvey. Mostly the stuff that was on the radio when I was in middle school

  13. Oh yes, Destiny's Child. This playlist auto-rules.


  14. I actually chuckled to myself when I pushed play-I'm a sucker for a ridiculous song with a catchy tune:) 'say my name say my name!"

  15. I don't think I can express how happy this playlist made me! I think a lot of people get caught up in how great their "eccentric taste" in music is and i'm guilty of that myself, but I'll never deny that I love me some top 40. Lots and lots.
    I got a nautical themed pashmina afghan.

  16. I'm all about Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. I don't care the song, I end up loving it. I get some beef for it, but I gladly take it.

  17. Beating heart baby - head automatica

    Love that song, and it is NOTHING like what I would normally listen too - I can't just listen to it once either! Over and over, much to my husbands disgust :)

  18. I just have so many guilty pleasures. I have the entire Buffy musical episode in my iPod. :)

  19. "I Touch Myself" by Divinyls. I really wouldn't admit that to most people I know.

    I spent many summer evenings listening to playlists that included that song...while chatting with friends on AIM. Oh yes!

  20. Guilty pleasure?

    "Teach Me How To Dougie" by Cali Swag District

    It is truly the dumbest song in the world... but I keep listening to it.


    "Niggas love to hate so they try to shoot me.
    Bitches be stuck to me; I think they tryna glue me.
    I make the party shine bright when it start to boomin.
    Dis beat was bubblegum so I had to chew it."

    Shakespeare would be jealous.


  21. Chamillionaire, ah yes, I remember that. I used to listen wayyy too much to that song ;)

    A few of my 'favorite' guilty pleasure songs:
    Lil' Kim - How many licks
    Pussycat Dolls - Buttons
    Sean Paul - Get Busy

  22. ah! You have Wannabe on here.. The Spice Girls are definitely my #1 guilty pleasure. I get taunted by friends and family like there's no tomorrow, but God help me I love them. I'll also admit to having Bad Romance on my ipod.. shh!! :)

  23. Ha! I actually did a Music Monday guilty pleasures recently myself.
