Anyone willing to confess a few of theirs? Probably the most embarrassing one I'm into right now is "The Loving Kind" by *cough*Girls Aloud*cough*. Ah well, worst comes to worst I can just say it was the video that attracted me.

Hot n Cold - Katy Perry
All of Pinks songs

I even enjoy the stupid video. Yes, I'm ashamed of myself for it.

That video wasn't too bad shutuplaura yeah right

You can get away with admitting that you have some respect for Take That, you might even be considered cool if you like E17 but when it's Westlife ... Embarassed

I'll take Girls Aloud over those phony c**** from Coldplay any day...

I've got Lily Allen's single stuck in my head, it's quite catchy, despite me loathing her mockney fakery and her twat of a father.

Cars and Are Friends Electric by Gary Numan spring to mind also. Tory, groupie-marrying weirdo, brilliant tunes...

The lily allen one London Town is a fairly serious song despite the tempo if you look at the lyrics

Rash of chicks singing these days.

What time is the week in politics on ?

Gary numan is a legend! and Lily Allen is like a chick version of Mick Skinner - perhaps more lightweight. Anyone want to admit liking Bros? When I was young the worst insult you could throw at someone was they were a Bros fan.

Gary Numan is a ledge.

Modern Talking, Brother Louie. The shame, Oh the shame!

I like that Katy Perry song too - though I've absolutely no idea who she is, and I like that Pink energises me a bit.

Both those songs are on the most recent Now album (I still have the first one on vinyl) and are pretty much the only ones worth listening to. There's a song by the Script (The Man who can't be moved) which I really like and Noah and the Whale on the other album but there are 40 shite songs on it otherwise. My sister loaned it to me... I didn't buy it.

Jolene is a good song but 9 to 5 is a great song. And that Westlife one you linked is very catchy too, Audi.

I've done my Chris de Burgh confession elsewhere.

Oh dear - I suppose I should ask for at least one count of Chris de Burgh to be taken into consideration. Also, 9 to 5 is indeed a good song.

Carpenters...

Couldn't say Kylie annoys me - I just never take much notice of her but this song does it for me Smile

I don't really like their show, but I like their song a lot. It's strangely moving...

I've a peculiar soft spot for female pop, anything by Kylie, Madge or increasingly Nelly Furtado is likely to get me tapping along.

Lily Allen got a good review in the IT the other day.
