As we near the end of the year, we have the final instalment of our guilty pleasure series. Here we have Luke sharing his top choices.
1. Robbie Williams – Bodies
Hardly the highest point in his career but I can’t help but love this song, especially the video. Motorcycle. Desert. Wheelies. What more could you want from a guilty pleasure?
2. Roll Deep – Good Times
A nostalgic throwback to when grime went pop, this song is made for getting ready for a night out and always goes down a treat in a pre drink playlist!
3. BABYMETAL – Line!
Probably one of the oddest and most ridiculous bands on the planet and I love them for it!
4. Jason Derulo – Riding Solo
As someone who’s not really an R&B fan, I can’t really explain why I like this song so much. 6 years on though and it’s still stuck in my head!
5. Papa Roach – Scars
Cheesy, angst filled hard rock. Great throwback to the emo days.
6. Tinchy Stryder ft. N-Dubz – Number 1
Arguably the best title you could have for a song you wanted to chart. It actually got to UK number 1 as well! Another one from when grime went pop, it brings back a lot of memories.
7. Savage Garden – Truly Madly Deeply
My mum loved this album when I was a kid and used to play it all of the time. It definitely rubbed off on me and I get all warm and fuzzy when I hear this track.
8. Far East Movement ft. The Cataracs, DEV – Like a G6
The most bizarre simile I’ve ever heard in a song but it’s impossible not to nod along to the bass and beat!
9. Chamillionaire ft. Krayzie Bone – Ridin’
Hard to find a better opening to a track-‘They see me rollinnn’”
10. High School Musical – Breaking Free
The crème de la crème of guilty pleasures, this film was pure cheese and 11 year old me loved it! So did a lot of other kids (and parents too) seeing as the soundtrack was the best selling album of 2006!
