OK everyone, get your minds of the gutter (GR – that means you). I am not talking about chocolate oils or rabbits or lingerie. I’m talking about things you like that you don’t want anyone to know that you like.
Last week I was taking a walk around my parents community in Florida. Had the iPod on, the earphones in, listening to my dance music playlist which is really good walking/exercising music. At times, I’m pretty sure I was singing loud enough for people to hear me if anyone was around. If any of my friends should ever hear a couple of the songs I have on my “dance music” playlist, they would be like “you are not listening to that song, are you?” Although I really like some of those songs I’m not sure I really want anyone else to know.
OK, so here are some examples of my guilty pleasures:
- The movie Red Dawn – Russia and Cuba invade the USA, high school kids fight back. Starring Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, C. Thomas Howell, Jennifer Grey, Lea Thomson. No idea why but whenever it’s on, I find myself watching. It’s hypnotic.
- The song Everbody Have Fun Tonight by Wang Chung. Not only sang by Wang Chung but they turn their name into a verb: “Everybody have fun tonight, everybody Wang Chung tonight.” Special meaning for me as that song was popular when I was working in Soho for an animation/special effects company and my friend Frank (hi Frank!) got me the disc as a secret Santa present. Funny song, good memory.
- The Partridge Family. This one is not mine but Linda’s. Personally, I never liked it, never understood the whole David Cassiday thing, never got off on Susan Dey like other guys. As I write this, my wife is singing some Partridge Family song and all I can say is yuck!
So now I have shared some of my guilty pleasures with you. Do you have the guts to share any with me and risk public humiliation?
