Mmm, guilt

Over at My Whim Is Law Betsy asked what our musical guilty pleasures are.

I guess that’s a tough one for me… does “She’s So Unusual”-era Cyndi Lauper count? I adored Cyndi and thought she was waaay cooler than Madonna. That cassette was one of the first ones I owned. I bought it on CD a few years ago and like to play it in the car. When I was a tween I thought Tiffany (best known for a covers of I Saw Him (Her) Standing There and I Think We’re Alone Now) was waay cooler than Debbie Gibson. However, I do not currently own any Tiffany.

Most people outside of my close circle of friends (consisting namely of DH and our co-best friend I’ve known since 8th grade) don’t know of my deep abiding love of early-to-mid-90′s grunge rock/alt rock. Oh yeah. Green Day, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots… I heard a Weezer song in the sandwich shop at lunch today from their first album and KNEW ALL THE WORDS. My dad was responsible for that one. It was a 2.5 hour drive from my mom’s house to his house and he introduced me to both Green Day and Stone Temple Pilots via car cassette player and I was totally hooked. My dad is the coolest.

Current day guilty pleasures? Alanis Morissette is a little guilt-inducing. My love of the Dixie Chicks is guilt-worthy. Is Sting guilt-worthy? Possibly. I love all of Depeche Mode’s music, from 1981 to present-day. That might be cringe-worthy – that early 80′s synth-pop was pretty cheesy.

Ah well. My musical tastes really run the gamut so it’s hard to label something a guilty pleasure. I think the Dixie Chicks probably rate the highest because I’m the only one who likes them in my group of friends, and I sing along loudly to all their songs when I’m in the car.

edited to add the biggest guilty pleasure: Bon Jovi. Enough said.

    Hi Claire! Thank you for commenting on my blog. I have enjoyed reading yours too.
    Oh goodness. I certainly do not want to get that Jafra lady in trouble. My intention with my blog is to vent about my goings on, and I really am nervous about my identity being given away. I am really not so vicious, or potty-mouthed in “real life”, and I hope you will keep the blog entry mum, as I truly understand that this lady may have had a really bad day. Anyway, I have learned a lesson hear, and will go to greater lengths to protect my identity, and other people’s (in my blog, in the future.

    Hi Jen
    I thought better of it, but I did mention to some of my co-consultants the importance of trying to leave a good impression at all times without naming names – just said I’d read about a poor experience online. I don’t want people to think that all Jafra consultants are cranky and give lousy customer service, ya know what I mean? Anyway, I’m sorry to have alarmed you – I commented without thinking. Thanks -Claire
