Hey, we all have our guilty pleasures.
"Teenage Dream," Katy Perry: Can't give her any credit for this one -- I was turned onto it by the frothy-fun men's a cappella cover on Glee. Every time Kurt and Blaine are on screen together, my blood fizzes like I'm leaning in for a first kiss that's going to last forever.
"Sitting, Waiting, Wishing," Jack Johnson: He comes from the future-dentists'-office pedigree of reedy snivelers I can't stand, but I'll admit, I'm a sucker for this gently cloying melody. Plus, of all his songs, it has by far the least embarrassing name. Come on -- Bubble Toes?!
"Gold Digger," Kanye West: Kanye's music generally doesn't do it for me, and I'm irritated by the fact that he seems to think he is literally God. But yes, Kanye, I want pre-nup. I want pre-nup.
"July, July," Decemberists: Look, you only get one spin 'round this crazy old universe, and I'm not about to eat up my turn by listening to month-long meandering, maudlin songs about Chinese acrobats smashing up the masts of bottled ship models, or whatever in heaven's name those fellows are wailing about. That said, I'm a little bit obsessed with this quirky, upbeat number from their first full album.
Pretty much anything by Taylor Swift: But don't call me a Taylor Swift fan. My brooding, writerly ego just can't take it.
What songs are you always a bit surprised to find on your most-played list?
