    This should be fun. Got something you consider a guilty pleasure? Something people don't know you listen to or something you don't broadcast? Or perhaps music that you know how to play that people don't know about you.

    I would consider mine to be 2 things;

    KISS-I am a kiss baby. Mother grew up on KISS. But, not many know that I really listen to them a lot. I think

    Pop punk- I am nearly thirty and I find myself listening to old pop punk/nostalgia bands for 90s kids. It's a weird thing but I would consider it a very quiet guilty pleasure for me.

    I like what I like and don’t feel guilty about it .I’m too old to care what somebody thinks about what I like , F,em if they don’t like it .

    No guilt whatsoever.

    But sometimes I feel made to explain myself when I listen to stuff like Tycho or Ta-ku. I love the albums Dive and Songs to Make Up To . . . and other stuff of that ilk. I always liked hip-hop, and I easily stray into the lo-fi jazz, hip-hop and trip-hop stuff.

    People who know me know I love music and will
    Listen to just about anything and will find something I like . If it’s good it’s good no matter the genre .

    The one song I love that nobody knows I love is this.

    Never heard of either of these. Not sure I could listen to it all the time but it’s a nice change of pace.

    Talk Talk.

    Hollis’s voice is just divine, could get lost in it for hours.

    No Guilty pleasures since IDGAF about what people think but off my beaten path I really like Tycho
    very dreamy, trippy and ambient

    Same here. I feel no guilt about anything I listen to.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I’d like to get back to weeping over a runaway dog.

    No musical guilty pleasure per se. But, who do I listen to that my buddies would give me a ration of sh*t over?
    Tori Amos.
    Wonderful songwriter.
    Wildly talented pianist.
    One of the best concerts I've ever seen.
