Instead of describing my true embarrassment for the music I listen to once in a while, I tried to go more in dept on why people find their own guilty pleasures embarrassing.
I have to admit, I don't find Austin Mahone's song "Say Something" to be total perfect music nor could I say that I actually think R5's "Want You Bad"'s lyrics are the best. Music like this is just plain catchy and I can't help but want to listen to it. I consider these people and bands to be my own guilty pleasures for I don't want my blog viewers or the people I know and see everyday to get the wrong idea of the music I listen to and enjoy. I exaggerate the thick line between the bands I listen to regularly and guilty pleasures for I find that bands like ALL CAPS and people like Alex Day to be a small part of me and make up a piece of who I am and describe my personality while The Ready Set is just something that I will listen to once and a while and embarrassingly dance to and I don't want others to be confused by that. \
I know this whole thing must be confusing. Why would I listen to music that I don't truly think is quality? Some songs and artists are just fun and even though I will cringe once and a while at an Austin Mahone song, I still dance along because the beat is catchy and the lyrics are easy to follow along with. I find that most people's guilty pleasures are guilty pleasures because it's out of their character and they don't want other's to get the wrong idea. Keep them.
Yes, I did create a guilty pleasure play list. On this one, I included my own guilty pleasure bands and singers such as Austin Mahone, The Wanted, The Ready Set, R5, Jedward, The Jonas Brothers, and Justin Bieber. Who knows? Maybe they will become your new guilty pleasures or even your new favorite music.
