I was going to fess up to the Carpenters but Mike got there first. So, my chosen guilty pleasure is Al Stewart and the gorgeously melodic guitar work of Tim Renwick.
I love Britney's "Circus"... nah, actually that's not true but I do like Tatu's version of "How Soon is Now" and their own "All The Things She Said".
I also love Soft Cell and Duran Duran and my admiration for Alice Cooper doesn't stop after Welcome To My Nightmare but carries on to include Dada and even Butal Planet.
Oh yes, and guiltiest of all... I prefer Courtney to Kurt and Hole to Nirvana (although of course I love both.
I don't even feel guilty about loving Rammstein (although I prefer Laibach and DAF) or Johnny Cash.

Rammstein. I love Rammstein.
And 'Hurt'. Johnny Cash version. Makes me cry. Every time. Every single bloody time.
I'm with you on Soft Cell. Thanks, Alcuin, T.
