Is this the ultimate guilty pleasures playlist?

Everyone wants to project coolness when it comes to their musical tastes. But everyone also likes certain songs and artists that would expose them as highly uncool. This is music you’d never, ever admit to liking. You only listen when privacy is assured.

Tikx, a British ticket seller, went through 1,000 Spotify playlists tagged with the phrase “guilty pleasure” and came up with a master playlist. Are these the greatest guilty pleasures of all time?
  1. Wannabe, Spice Girls
  2. I Want It That Way, Backstreet Boys
  3. Toxic, Britney Spears
  4. Party in the USA, Miley Cyrus
  5. …Baby One More Time, Britney Spears
  6. Boys With Luv (feat. Halsey), BTS
  7. Hips Don’t Like (feat. Wyclef Jean), Shakira
  8. Callaita, Bad Bunny
  9. Oops!…I Did It Again, Britney Spears
The top guilty pleasure acts are:
  1. BTS (13 songs in the top 100 of this analysis)
  2. Britney Spears
  3. Miley Cyrus
  4. BLACKPINK
  5. Bad Buny
  6. One Direction
  7. Shakira
  8. Red Velvet
  9. EXO
  10. Spice Girls
And the top guilty pleasure genres are:
  1. K-pop (29 songs in the top 100 of this analysis)
  2. Dance pop
  3. Latin
  4. Boy band
  5. Pop

I'm pretty picky about my playlists, so I only own a total of around 800 songs, and this is including songs I began collecting in my pirating Napster days, so most of my music is probably a little weird.

Top guilty pleasure songs:

1. Tubthumping by Chumbawumba
2. Live While We're Young by One Direction
3. Crazy Bitch by Buckcherry
4. Stronger by Britney
5. Get Another Boyfriend by Backstreet Boys
6. We're All in This Together from High School Musical
7. Stacey's Mom by Fountains of Wayne (also Bowling for Soup cover)
8. Tik Tok by Ke$ha
9. It's Gonna be Be by NSYNC
10. Kiss the Girl from the Little Mermaid Soundtrack

This song came out when I was in college. I was driving somewhere on a nice day and it came on the radio. I was sitting at a red light on campus with my windows down just belting it out. After about 10 seconds I realized there are 2 hot chicks in the car next to me just laughing at me.

Anyways, this song still bangs. I will always listen (and probably sing along) when I hear it on the XM 90s on 9.

Everybody always pretends to hate pop music, but it's popular with someone.

I stopped pretending not to enjoy it a while ago, it's been nice.

Lean into what you like. It's freeing to not care about what you're supposed to enjoy.
