5 Musical Guilty Pleasures

5. "We Built This City" by Starship.

4. "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham!

3. "All By Myself" by Eric Carmen.

2. "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" by Starship.

1. "To Love Somebody" by Michael Bolton.

[List-Defending Rant: Look, I understand that Starship cost us all some IQ points. But I dare you to try not singing along. Yeah, that's what I thought. Eric Carmen gets the Dion two-fer. [Isn't #2 a Diane Warren tune?--ed] Yes. I hate it when that happens. But if a song is written by the Bee Gees, and sung by Bolton, it wins. Done and done. And any list of guilt-inducing songs must include George Michael. Noone quite says "awesome pariah" quite like George Michael.]
