Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Songs

These are the cheesiest, most embarrassing songs... that you just can't help but to love. You feel bad about liking them (guilt), but you just can't help but to have a good time listening to them (pleasure).
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 stays 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.

This song is catchy, and I am guilty of this.

I'm so ashamed I like this crappy song.

2 Barbie Girl - Aqua

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

Yes, this is a guilty pleasure. It's a stupid song, but I can't help it.

I'm only ashamed of knowing the lyrics by heart.

3 Flashdance... What a Feeling - Irene Cara
4 Gimme Gimme Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) - ABBA
5 The Final Countdown - Europe
6 Cotton Eye Joe - Rednex

It's a really fun song. I don't feel ashamed of liking it.

7 Baby Got Back - Sir Mix-a-Lot
8 Y.M.C.A. - Village People

What? I thought everyone loved this song. Besides, I hate the term guilty pleasure if it's used for music, movies, or shows because it's just something you like. If you ask me, a guilty pleasure would be something like eating something that's bad for you. You like it, but it's bad for you.

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

9 Dragostea Din Tei (Numa Numa) - O-Zone

I love this song and I'll always love it. In my opinion, it's the best electro-pop song ever. It's amazing. Too bad the band parted ways.

Arsenium, one of the former members, was last seen at 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 these 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 to "Party, party, that guy becomes gay, that guy becomes gay, that guy becomes feather gay." And it got famous here that way. Now, every time I want to listen to the original Romanian song, I have to listen to it alone, or people would think I'm gay while the original song has nothing to do with it.

10 Macho Man - Village People
The Contenders
11 Footloose - Kenny Loggins
12 Baby - Justin Bieber
13 Livin' la Vida Loca - Ricky Martin
14 Achy Breaky Heart - Billy Ray Cyrus
15 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen
16 Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

This really meets the definition quite well. A bad song that you end up still liking.

This is one for me. It's so bad, but I end up enjoying it.

17 Hey Mama - David Guetta
18 Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani

This song is a BIG guilty pleasure for me.

19 Latino & Proud - DJ Raff
20 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
21 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler

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

This song is fantastic, but I don't think that this is really a guilty pleasure song, to be honest.

22 My Heart Will Go On - Cèline Dion
23 Cookie - R. Kelly
24 Boombayah - Blackpink
25 Beetlebum - Blur
