pretty much same here

except in the first case someone may send from the same artist,

in second i have an indie song that would probably make top 5

and then i have 2 songs that could be hard to stomach... one is totally unknown so last place guaranteed (well, you'd probably know it's my song and i think i could name 2-3 members who'd actually vote for it) the other may get a few votes though not enough for the final

Reminding myself of some of the songs, I figured it would be fun to have "guilty pleasure" as the next theme

I'm having a very hard time chosing a song, this time.

Too many choices in my arsenal.

What if you don't have any? All my pleasures are guilt-free.

Me winning is too unlikely for me to contemplate which category I'd choose. I'm sure I'd be able to think of something on short notice.

Really, not even one?

I was going through some songs now, Britney Spears bumps out, I start singing knowing all the lyrics and then I'm just like "Oh God, hope no one's heard me"

why to be ashamed of music that we like for this reason or another? because the society tells us?

Exactly.

90's is so diversified as is the Noughties for sure. So if we are to select from this era, we should start classifying between pop/metal/alternate/hard rock/club/hip hop etc. For me who listens to all sorts of music, it really gets difficult because I like Cher for as many reasons as say I would like GGD or STP. It would be easier to choose if a genre was classified.

Can we still do that for this contest as we are in the early stages? Tripwires could be more specific...unless everyone thinks its a bummer of an idea. What say you MTF'rs?

Also it will make the playlist more singular, IMO

For me it's because I have enough music education to know when something is quality and when something is not. When I go out and have a few drinks I tend to get crazy on the dancefloor even if it's Miley Cyrus' "We can't stop" playing and I won't give a damn, but when I'm home and sober I'm not going to type it in the search on youtube and go listen to it because I'm aware it represents pretty much everything that's wrong in today's music world.

when a music is meant to give you pure entertainment, and you sing it along or dance to it, then it serves it purpose hence is a good song

for instance there is shit like pitbull, not even guilty pleasure to anyone

I'm sure I could find something to nominate for the category, if so I'd try to select something others are generally embarrassed to admit they like. I don't feel it myself, though. I did as a teenager but it kind of disappeared along the way.

And I was never specialist enough to realize what is quality and what is not. I'm mainly self-educated in music, playing through lots of stuff and finding out what I like and what I don't like.

Sure, for that purpose it is, but then I think it also fits in the concept of guilty pleasure.

All right I'm in here. This shouldn't take too much time away from my job here as vBookie and yet it will give me something else to do!

90s Selection isn't easy. A lot of 80s bands carried into the 90s without changing their sound much. Only Alt rock was purely a 90s thing.
