Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Songs

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

The Top Ten

1 Wannabe - Spice Girls

Yes, I love this! - Luckys

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

I wanna HA I wanna HA I wanna HA I wanna really really really really ziggy ziggy ahhh

2 Flashdance... What a Feeling - Irene Cara

The number of hours I've spent dancing to this song in my kitchen at age 10. - Catacorn

3 Barbie Girl - Aqua

Yes, this is a guilty pleasure. Stupid song, but I can't help it. - Userguy44

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.

4 Gimme Gimme Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) - Abba
5 The Final Countdown - Europe

What's wrong with liking this song? - jameshoward

How? - Userguy44

6 Baby Got Back - Sir Mix-A-lot
7 Macho Man - Village People
8 Y.M.C.A. - Village People

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

9 Baby - Justin Bieber

Early Justin Bieber was good

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

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

10 Achy Breaky Heart - Billy Ray Cyrus

The Newcomers

? A Virgin Like You - The Ark
? Little Girl - H-Blockx

The Contenders

11 Cookie - R. Kelly
12 Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani

This song is a BIG guilty pleasure for me...


13 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler

How is this a guilty pleasure? People love this song. - PhoenixAura81

14 All Star - Smash Mouth

While I understand this one honestly I just like this song I don't really feel guilty about liking it. - Powell

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

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

15 My Heart Will Go On - Cèline Dion
16 Turbo Lover - Judas Priest

A lot of great or widely acclaimed bands have guilty pleasure songs
Queen: Another One Bites the Dust
Led Zeppelin: The Lemon Song
Judas Priest: Turbo Lover
Metallica: Ain't My B
Megadeth: Crush 'em
Black Sabbath: Sweet Leaf - Alkadikce

I personally LOVE this song and I consider it one of the best Judas Priest songs. - PhoenixAura81

17 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

18 Beetlebum - Blur

I don't think this is a guilty pleasure song. I think it's just a great tune (one of their best in my opinion). - Gg2000

A great song that is almost universally accepted to be great shouldn't be on the list.

19 Just Lose It - Eminem
20 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.

21 Rasputin - Boney M

I love this song and the Just Dance dance of it. - PhoenixAura81

22 I'm Too Sexy - Right Said Fred
23 Everybody (Backstreet's Back) - Backstreet Boys

I strangely like this song... I'm a weird person.

24 Rock Me Amadeus - Falco
25 Firework - Katy Perry

I don't think it's a guilty pleasure song, because its cheesiness and generic chorus doesn't reward you with any catchy melodies. Katy Perry songs, despite being played a lot, never get stuck in my head. Imagine writing songs for the sake of being catchy and entertaining while they don't end up having those propoerties. - Alkadikce

Just wondering. If it did manage to do what it was supposed to do what would it still be only a guilty pleasure? - Powell

26 Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) - Silento
27 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...

28 Till the World Ends - Britney Spears
29 Informer - Snow
30 Girl You Know It's True - Milli Vanilli
31 Whistle - Flo Rida

Me is likin it flo rida is the bezt

32 Heaven - Bryan Adams
33 Hearts On Fire - John Cafferty
34 I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Aerosmith
35 Runaround Sue - Dion
36 Funky Man - Dee Dee King
37 Our Lips Are Sealed - The Specials
38 Perfect - Pink

Pink mostly gets love, but this still feels like a guilty pleasure song. - 3DG20

39 She Blinded Me With Science - Thomas Dolby
40 Dynamite - Taio Cruz

To be honest, I kind of have a guilty pleasure for this and “Break Your Heart”. - 3DG20

41 Far from Over - Frank Stallone
42 Trap Queen - Fetty Wap
43 Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley

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.

I played this at a New Year's party. - RiverClanRocks

44 Footloose - Kenny Loggins
45 Gangnam Style - Psy
