Like Jay pointed out, I don’t really keep my guilty pleasures to myself. In fact, all of my friends, old and new, can tell you that I love ‘Wicked Game’ by Chris Isaak, think Taylor Swift has mastered the art of writing pop songs, and that I think all wedding receptions had better fucking include Whigfield’s ‘Saturday Night’. Therefore, in order to make this guilty pleasures playlist I had to dig a bit deeper. But let me make one thing clear, I am in no way ashamed of loving these songs. I’d just be a bit hesitatant to admit it while in the company of macho dudes.
TERENCE TRENT D’ARBY – Wishing Well (1987)
Sex music for cool people.
SINEAD O’CONNOR – The Emperor’s New Clothes (1990)
When she’s not shaving her head or ripping up pictures of the Pope, she’s writing hits! Amazing voice.
SOPHIE B. HAWKINS – Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover (1991)
Okay I feel a little ashamed of this one. Since it’s presumably a song written by a woman for women. I especially like that it’s actually quite a dark track disguised as a love song.
