We’re at the double digits. Now, if it wasn’t embarrassing enough, sharing one guilty pleasure, I’m going to share a few cause I really couldn’t decide – plus I have a lot of unexplainable songs that I just search on Youtube from time to time. Just because it’s so addictive.
So, here we go:
1. The Last Unicorn – Dan Avidan and Brian Wecht
You can skip to around the 1:50 mark to actually listen to the song, cause Dan does a long explanation before the main song as to why he’s covering it. But yes this song basically ticks the list of embarrassing yet amazing songs that I just keep going back to lately. Actually, there was an entire week recently where I would wake up early in the morning and have this song in my head. And it was kind of sad that no one would probably understand me if I ever did sing this out loud cause it’s such a contextualised song. Another such song he sings that I am absolutely addicted to and regretfully know the lyrics to is Luigi’s Ballad.
2. Amnesia – 5 Seconds of Summer
I think I listened to a lot of covers of this before I listened to the original. But I absolutely love the original. Definitely a guilty pleasure cause I actually spent an entire week singing this in the shower. But it’s really not the kind of music I’ll admit I listen to – well, technically I just did. Another mainstream guilty pleasure would probably be “Break Free” by Ariana Grande ft. Zedd.
3. That Girl is Crafty – TryHardNinja
*Buries face in dirt block* I can’t, I really can’t help it or explain it. The lyrics, the tune – it’s just flippin’ catchy. Plus all those Minecraft puns. The embarrassment just grows and grows. But these songs, to me, are just so addictive and easy on the ears …
4. The Hero – Ministry of Magic
Probably another fandom group, but I absolutely love this song as well. They used to do Harry Potter related songs, but now I only follow Luke Conrad on Youtube. This song is (if you haven’t noticed already) one about Severus Snape. Other songs I’m addicted to by the band include “The Bravest Man I Ever Knew” and “Ascendio”.
5. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – Michael Buble
Okay, so not really this song in particular. But just all Christmas songs. They’re such a huge guilty pleasure. And I can sing them any time of the year. They just make me warm and fuzzy.
So these are the five songs I wanted to share. If anything, they are representative of five different types of guilty pleasures I have. The first one is any song related to the Game Grumps whether it be Ninja Sex Party or Starbomb. The other are the mainstream songs that I hate to admit I love and listen to on repeat when there’s nothing else for me to listen to. The third is any song related to Minecraft – which is probably the zenith of my embarrassment. The fourth is any song related to the Harry Potter fandom – or really any fandom. And the last is Christmas songs. You play any song from these categories and I will hate myself for loving them so much – but still play them anyway.
So, please save me from any further embarrassment and head over to Rhey of Sunshine’s blog to see her guilty pleasures. If you came from her blog, hello, and I’m sorry you had to put yourself through this playlist. But if you like those above songs, hey, let’s be friends. 🙂
