I still play some Pat Benatar CDs when the mood strikes. The first 3 albums are all good, I never liked anything after that. Precious Time is my favorite.

I like Pat Benatar's voice ... have her True Love CD which is more bluesy and features Roomful of Blues ... recommend this one.

Also like Simply Red - Mick Hucknall has one he@@ of a voice ... who knew a red-headed kid from England could sing with such soul?

Prince ... Little Red Corvette ... love him.

I liked Prince in the Purple Rain era.

I've always had a soft spot for The Bee Gees pre-disco era stuff. I have a vinyl copy of their live album somewhere.

I'm also a fan of Daryl Hall & John Oates. Along The Red Ledge and Live Time were great rock albums.

I grew up on REO, Foreigner, Styx and Journey stuff, and a lot of it I still find very tolerable. I wish classic rock radio would stop playing Boston twice an hour, though.

And lastly, from the disco era, I used to love Chic, and even a little Donna Summer, but I was outwardly anti-disco.

I always thought it was hilarious how nobody would admit to liking the Carpenters even though they sold 100 kazillion records.

Even though listening to the Carpenters could give you sugar shock Karen Carpenter had one of the most beautiful voices ever recorded and you couldn't help but hear the Carpenters on the radio in the 70's because they just turned out hit after hit. Back to the Topic though , I sometimes get an old song stuck in my head from the 70's & 80's , many times It's a song from that era ( when FM radio was still a viable listening forum ) that I had the vinyl but never replaced it with a CD and the music is partially forgotten . But then you hear something that triggers the memory. So a couple of weeks ago I purchased Toto's 1st album on CD and was pleasantly surprised as I listened to the album about how good a group of musicians Toto was and how that first album sounded like they would be taking up a regular residence on the Billboard charts through their career. The playing is top notch & the singing & harmonies are all excellent , maybe TOO much so. But then they were creatures of the studio so that type of album would be expected. Bands like Toto , Styx , Kansas , Journey etc. all fall into my personal "Guilty Pleasures" bin.

I could not agree more Ken. Karen Carpenter had one of the most deep, rich, and soothing voices ever. I loved her when I was a kid and was shocked when I heard she died. I have one of their Greatest Hits CDs but really have to be in a certain mood to play it. Probably haven't listened to it in ten years or so.

Just had a birthday in May. My kids, 23 yo son, 25 yo daughter, give me my gifts. Daughter, feeling quite proud--she bought us all dinner and gave me a gift card to Lowe's for one of my guilty pleasures--gardening. Son, gives me a single Cd--what could he have spent 10-12-15 bucks. The Cd was The Best of Prince. My daughter says "You like Prince?" I say, "Guilty pleasure." She was so pissed her brother knew that I liked Prince and she didn't. And then, one week later, Mule covers When Doves Cry at Mt. Jam. Gotta love it.

Agree with everyone who has mentioned Prince as a "not a guilty pleasure."Sign O The Times is a brilliant album, as is Purple Rain.

Ten years ago, I would have said The Ramones. Actually I still would, except now , after all these years, they are finally cool. (as they should have been all along)

Other than that:

T-Rex

Sweet

Tommy James and The Shondells



The Bubblegum 45s:


Sugar Sugar and Jingle Jangle by The Archies

Indian Giver by The 1910 Fruit Gum Company

Yummy Yummy Yummy by The Ohio Express

Pat can sing her ass off and always has a good band. I prefer the albums that you mention also. Would add Get Nervous to the older albums. Wolfgang's Vault has a good show from the Precious Time tour.

You should give a listen to Gravity's Rainbow also. Really strong effort from the later years and has that earlier sound.

As mentioned, the True Blue album of blues tunes is great.

Innamorata is a very different album. Lots of acoustic stuff and string sections.

Plus let's face it. She's hot.

Oldies, motown...etc doo wop......I love the pop music from the late 50's through the mid sixties. Lots of great tunes and some real cheeseball material too but I still listen to oldies stations anywhere I drive and can't find a KPIG type station. Duke of earl, hello stranger. Higher and Higher....stuff like that

While most here will consider it a guilty pleasure, I call it loving good music:

I love rap.

Ask me to list my favorite artists, and with all the blues and rock guitar gods, in the same breath I'll list people like

2Pac
Notorious B.I.G.
Nas
Dr. Dre
OutKast
Jay-Z
Big L

When I was 12 and first really started listening to Eric Clapton, I was already knee deep in old school rappers like M.C. Hammer, Heavy D, Sir Mix Alot, Young MC, etc.

While my passion for the blues has grown over the years, and I certainly don't listen to as much rap as I used to, when I put a 2Pac's "All Eyez On Me" album into the CD player, it affects me just as strongly -- albiet in a different artistic way -- as an ABB ablum.

In fact, one of my favorite things to do while playing is to put on some rap tracks with no vocals, plug in my electric and play some cool blues-inspired leads over the rap beats. Personally, I think it sounds awesome.

Now, if I could only find a hip-hop DJ or hip-hop band that would like to play with me.
