A Song that Makes You Feel GuiltyPosted: June 26, 2011
I think this is supposed to mean “guilty pleasure.” But I don’t think of music that way — there is music that you like, and music that you don’t. It’s just a question of taste, like food. No one thinks you are a hollow person if you say you hate eggplant, or you really, really like flour tortillas. (Both of those are true.)
But there is music that you feel represents you, that reflects your soul, and then there is music that you might listen to and enjoy, but that you don’t consider to be a part of you. Or, at least, when someone steals your iPod you might feel compelled to make a few disclaimers.
So, in those terms. Here’s a song that I love, but might clarify that, well, it doesn’t reflect my soul. (Or does it?)
