We all have those songs we secretly love, but under no circumstances would we admit to our friends (or even spouse) to actually liking in fear of being ridiculed.
These “guilty pleasures” are typically songs that are widely considered cheesy or campy by most of society’s standards, and well, the ’80s had plenty to choose from.
Though really when you think about it, why should we feel guilty for liking something that makes us feel all warm and bubbly inside? It’s time to own up to those guilty pleasure songs that once made you hide your face in shame and proudly admit that you like to rock out to “Don’t Stop Believin'” in the car!
We decided to get the ball rolling, and below you’ll see that The K-EARTH 101 Morning Show crew bravely fessed up what their all-time guilty pleasure songs of the ’80s are. There’s no turning back now.
