Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Songs

These are the catchiest yet most cheesy/embarrassing songs ever created!

The Top Ten

1 Wannabe - Spice Girls

I really didn't want to like this song, but it's the only song in existence that says in my head for hours every time I listen to it. Everyone stares at me when I say I like this song or when I sing it.

I'm so ashamed I like this crappy song. - ShyChick



2 Barbie Girl - Aqua

The definition of a guilty pleasure song! - NintendoROCK3T

A 90s kid song, but now embarrassing. I had two Aqua songs on cassette tape Barbie Girl and Dr Jones.

3 Baby Got Back - Sir Mix-A-lot
4 Rain Man - Eminem
5 Just Lose It - Eminem
6 Dynamite - Taio Cruz
7 Y.M.C.A. - Village People

Haha. My science teacher sits in the middle of the classroom and dances while singing this song.

8 So What - Pink

I'm a punk dude but this is still just an absolute bop:'D

9 Cotton Eye Joe - Rednex

The ULTIMATE guilty pleasure song. Catchy tune. You can't help but dance to it. However, it's still seen as annoying. What could be better? Try not to finish: IF IT HADN'T BEEN FOR COTTON EYE JOE, I'D BEEN MARRIED LONG TIME AGO. WHERE DID YOU COME FROM? WHERE DID YOU GO? WHERE DID YOU COME FROM...

10 Low - Flo Rida

The Newcomers

? Glad You Came - The Wanted
? No - Meghan Trainor

The Contenders

11 International Love - Pitbull
12 Dragostea Din Tei (Numa Numa) - O-Zone

I love this song and I'll always love it. It's, in my opinion, the best electro-pop song ever. It's amazing. Too bad the band parted ways. Arsenium, one of the former members was last seen on the Viña del Mar festival in Chile competing with rookies. His song was clearly too similar to Dragostea Din Tei. And he got a quite low score. O-Zone didn't know what they had until they lost it. This song is one in a million. We've enjoyed it for a decade, and maybe another decade will pass and the king will still be on his throne.

Oh, and by the way, I really love this list. Guilty Pleasure is an excellent name for what this songs represent. I haven't heard that term until now! All the songs fit perfectly. Congratulations, NintendoROCK. This song is maybe the most Guilty Pleasure Song ever. You may not know it, but there's a version in my country of this song that changed the lyrics for (translated) "Party, party, that guy becomes gay, that guy becomes gay, that guy becomes feather ...more - keyson

13 Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani
14 My Heart Will Go On - Cèline Dion
15 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler
16 All Star - Smash Mouth

Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on get paid!

I don't think this is a guilty pleasure song - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

17 Bette Davis Eyes - Kim Carnes

I think Kim Carnes is one of the best artists of all time, she has written many great songs and has been covered by other artists. I think she was very underrated and so she deserves more credit for that.

18 Beetlebum - Blur
19 Down In the DM - Yo Gotti
20 Girl's Generation - Girl's Generation
21 I'm Too Sexy - Right Said Fred
22 Rock Me Amadeus - Falco
23 Baby - Justin Bieber

I'd put Kidz Bop on guilty pleasure and maybe remember Hitclips?

You've gotta admit it's catchy! :P - NintendoROCK3T

35 This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like a MotherF****r - Maroon 5

38 Pokemon Theme Song (Gotta Catch 'Em All)


The song is so nostalgic. I miss the good old days of childhood and Pokemon season 1 too.
And how is this song guilty pleasure? It's very inspirational. It's not embarrassing even in the slightest. - Kiteretsunu

Rick rolling. Basically, just playing this song ironically. Doing anything with this song. It's just embarrassing. But you also can't help but love this ear worm.

48 She Bangs - Ricky Martin
49 Crank That - Soulja Boy
