The '80s: Ten Guilty Pleasures

When it comes to the 1980s, if you liked almost anything from the musical mainstream of the time, chances are you considered it a guilty pleasure. The folks at Glide magazine's Hidden Track blog have complied ten of their own from the golden age of MTV, Max Headroom, and leg warmers. And yes, they are, for the most part, quite dreadful. Proceed with caution.

They're missing a major one that fits although I STILL don't consider it a guilty pleasure, in fact, I STILL listen to the record all the time---yes, "Perfect Way" by Scritti Politti still rocks the house 23 years later :-)

PS: Thanks for reposting the funk album survey yesterday....I had forgotten all about that!!!

Not a guilty pleasure over here, either: Cupid & Psyche '85 is one of my top faves from that decade. Thanks for reminding me; I'm gonna go listen to it right now...

I was going thru the "5" archives and when I saw that your piece had not made it online, in this format, AND it was 6 yrs to the day of its original broadcast, well, then...
