Guilty Music Pleasure


#81

Finally, without further ado, I present the long-awaited, desperately-anticipated, much-ballyhooed concert video!

The singer notices my daughter’s matching mini-dress around the 24 second mark. She was so thrilled!

#83

I can’t really explain it, but I like me some Oasis. Liam is a whiny shitbag, and Noel is an asshole (but a very amusing and entertaining one), but regardless of any merit I just groove to the stuff he writes.

I’d never claim it’s amazing, but it hits me in a weird happy place and I’m willing to fess up to it.


#84

No reason in the world to think Oasis needs to be a “guilty pleasure.” At their best, they’re the defining sound of a generation, and one of the great rock and roll bands of all time.

Play 'em loud!


#85

Oasis Rocks!

Seriously, though:


#86

God I love the Gallagher brothers.


#87

Are they still hating each other?


#88

They do and they don’t. Looked like they might do a reunion last year, and then Noel sensed Liam really wanting it and decided to take the piss…as Noel does. And so now who knows.


#89

It’s like he is 14 years old…


#90

My love for Noel is pretty much unconditional even so.


#91

Yeah, I hear you. I was too “growed up” (I guess) to Unconditional Love Oasis in the 90s (I was in my mid-20s). Now I had Unconditional Love for these two:

The I’m Bored video is really tasty, and the mix is tight.

I’m the Chairman of the Bored!

#93

The only music I enjoy that I feel the least bit guilty about is this piece:


#94

To balance yourself out after listening to Yanni.

Can’t understand them but who cares. You can’t stop watching.


#95

And other 80’s and 90’s cartoon theme songs.


#96

A 90s Offspring tune that is goofy and guilty.


#97

#98

My personal favorite guilty pleasure from a fictional band:


#99

In a similar vein, I found a copy of the Transformers the Movie soundtrack in the Virgin Megastore in the early 90s. I spent a lot of the decade listening to it rather than blur/oasis with my contemporaries.

Guilty pleasure then, now I wear it like a badge of honour!

P. S. I suppose if I’m doing this I should confess to this too

Dweezil and Ahmet Zappa.
