I know I started this thread but it was only in fun and, guess what Mike, Iím going to see Betty Boo along with the likes of China Crisis, Nick Hayward, Nick Kershaw, Tony Hadley, Midge Ure, Heaven 17, The Real Thing, Jimmy Somerville, Go West and Sonia at the ĎLetís Rock Essex Retro Festivalí in September   Shocked Grin so any worrying about (non-existent) credibility is completely pointless...mind you Iím really looking forward to seeing China Crisis as I own several albums!

I'm with those who no longer care about what's meant to be cool to like, but I suppose if I were to have a guilty pleasure it's probably cheesy metal bands, especially Manowar.

Good for you...I have a couple of China Crisis albums too, Haircut 100's Fantastic Day was a fave, Nick's been to Croppers a couple of times and I enjoyed him a lot, I have a Spandau album (reminds me of the lovely Carol and much smooching), Midge has Croppered too and Vienna was one of the greatest not number ones of all time. The next four were OK, if not big in my world and then there's Sonia. Enjoy...and think of me when you're Doin' The Doo.

We saw China Crisis last year - they were excellent. Good solid pop tunes, well delivered with a bit of amusing banter in between. other than Sonia and Jimmy Somerville, that's a great line up!

I think there must be more than one stage - at least I hope so so that I can give Sonia a wide berth  Grin. Also playing are Status Quo, Musical Youth, Belouis Ome, Owen Paul and Jenny ĎBelle Starí Matthias

I suppose there are some bands that should be guilty pleasures given how unfashionable they are - so Marillion, Barclay Jams Harvest and Status Quo - but I listen to them unashamedly (the latter two is mainly their early 60s/70s stuff). Real guilty pleasures are 80s soft rock bands like Chicago, Foreigner  etc. The sort of songs that you might find on a double CD with a title like 'Best Ever Driving Songs for Dads'.

This situationm confuses me somewhat.
Finding a real cool 4CD compilation of Seventies rock and Prog in Asda entitled 'Best Dad Rock Album....Ever', am I allowed to listen to it, having never produced any kids ?
Shouldn't it be renamed Grandad Rock by now ?
Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war?
Speaking of which, the Moodies being mentioned earlier reminded me that I've finally bought a copy of This Is The Moody Blues, yay !

That was my first and remains my favorite Moody Blues collection. Solid from start to finish, the experience is like listening to Moody Blues radio (what with the cross-fades), and the mixes are in many cases superior to the original album mixes (e.g., the acoustic guitar is brought up in the mix and the flute solo pans from right to left on "Legend of a Mind").

It's even more confusing for me....  Undecided

I have to admit that my car is full of this type of CD. Nothing helps a long journey like singing along to Rainbow or a bit of Toto!  Cheesy

I never thought of that....I suppose they could call it Sprog Rock, but that wouldn't cover the non parents - Unplugged and Sproggless ? I'll work on it.
