Admit it, you always wanted a MONKEY

I freely admit that I have questionable taste at times. It is very, very rarely indefensible, but today I was embarrassed in my own home, by iTunes.

You see, I have a playlist of guilty pleasures. Everybody's got 'em. Some contain, say David Archuleta and Michael Buble, some the Spice Girls, and mine... Well, mine's got a little song by the Barenaked Ladies. They write some subversive stuff, even if they are the worst kind of earworm pop. Anyhow, I purchased If I Had A Million Dollars at 11 p.m. one lonely evening and added it to my g.p. list. And this morning, when I went to buy a song or two to flesh out my radio show, iTunes #1 recommendation for me was HOOTIE AND THE BLOWFISH. I couldn't believe how quickly I recoiled. It was like I'd been stung by a bee. Then I realized that it was a fairly accurate assumption, since my guilty pleasure playlist also contains this gem:

By the way, Huey Lewis and the News are NOT on my list of guilty pleasures, because I feel NO shame in loving that man or his music.

  1. Ha ha ha!! Wow, a guilty pleasure list? If I had one, there's probably be Coldplay in it. I love Coldplay. I know, I know,'s just one of those things. My love for Neneh Cherry and Belinda Carlisle are way less embarrassing than that. I'd even blast Dave Matthews Band from the windows before I'd admit to listening to Coldplay.

    Except I just did, to the entire comment-reader-ship of your blog.

    p.s. I hate the Barenaked Ladies.
