Nelson’s Dustin Stashko lists his favourite songs he’d never play in public

There will always be songs that you’re ashamed you love. They’re called “guilty pleasures.”

Sir Mix-A-Lot song 'Baby Got Back' is one of Dustin Stashko's guilty pleasures.

You know those songs that you sing on the top of your lungs in the shower in the privacy of your own home, but you wouldn’t be caught dead listening to in public? Of course you do.

There’ll always be  songs that you’re ashamed you love. They’re called “guilty pleasures.” Here’s a few that you’ll agree with.

Sir Mix-A-Lot – “Baby Got Back” – What? You know you love this song.

Starland Vocal Band – “Afternoon Delight” – Made (more) famous by Ron Burgundy and his news team. This song’s got it all: sexual innuendo, harmonizing, and… Sexual innuendo.

New Found Glory  – “My friends over you” – Probably the peak of pop-punk in the early 2000’s. If you admitted you liked this song in  high school, you’d get beat up.

Starship – “We Built This City” – Many publications tout this as the worst song ever made in music history. Haters.

Savage Garden – “Truly Madly Deeply” – I bet if you played this song for a girl in 1996, you’d probably get to second base. My second base is  touching a shoulder. So in my ball game, there’s about 62 bases. It’s exhausting.

Snow  – “Informer” – A white, Canadian rapper. How can this be even remotely bad?!

4 Non Blondes  – “What’s up” – I’ve defended this song for years now! Mostly because even the most cynical person will eventually be singing the chorus in a high-pitched, annoying voice.

Culture Beat  – “Mr.Vain” – This was played during every dance party in the 90’s.  We had “sock hops” where I grew up. Where you’d dance. In socks.

LFO   – “Summer Girls” – Yes LFO, the New Kids on The Block did have a bunch of hits, and chinese food also makes me sick. The rhyming on this is so terrible, that’s its genius.
