Here are the videos I saw for songs I liked the most, and would consider "guilty pleasures." In no particular order, here goes...
Nu Shooz - I Can't Wait
I had heard this song many times over the years but never knew who sang it. Apparently they're some husband and wife duo, with the wife having been compared to Madonna in terms of vocals by some. I love that synth-heavy melody, it's one that can get stuck in your head if you're not careful. Oops, there I go again...oh yeah, nice name haha.
Pretty Poison - Catch Me I'm Falling (from the motion picture soundtrack to the film "Hiding Out," starring Jon Cryer)
Wait, so there was a band called "Pretty Poison," around the same time that the hair metal band poison was breaking big? Interesting. I had never heard this song, or heard of the movie it's attached to, but I found myself digging it. For some reason I'm also finding the singer of this very attractive...I will always have a soft spot for the '80s ladies. I kinda wanna see this "Hiding Out" movie, it features Jon Cryer playing a stockbroker who has to pose as a high schooler to hide out from the mob. Sounds like your typical '80s movie plot right?
The Sundays - Here's Where the Story Ends
Another song I had heard numerous times over the years but knew nothing about who sang it, this is a classic example of that era's alternative/indie/dream pop sound. When I hear this I'm reminded of both the Cranberries and the Smiths. Lovely song, lovely singer, this brings back memories of childhood and simpler days gone by.
So these are my latest guilty pleasures as far as music goes...as always, don't judge!
