Well, tonights theme on the X factor was 'guilty pleasures'. A theme which didn't improve the show at all, and personally I thought it was pretty poor. Very few of the song choices could be classed as a guilty pleasure - boring. It did however get me thinking about what musically, is my guilty pleasure. For me there can only be one and it's Pat Benatar. I've posted lyrics from her songs before on here but I absolutely love her songs. 

Here are just a few snippets from my favourites:

Your love is like a tidal wave, spinning over my head
Drownin' me in your promises, better left unsaid
You're the right kind of sinner, to release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner, and you know that you were born to be
You're a Heartbreaker
Dream Maker, Love Taker
Don't you mess around with me

Hit Me with Your Best Shot 
Well you're the real tough cookie with the long history
Of breaking little hearts, like the one in me
That's O.K., lets see how you do it
Put up your dukes, lets get down to it!
You come on with a "come on", you don't fight fair
But that's O.K., see if I care!
Knock me down, it's all in vain
I'll get right back on my feet again!
Love Is a Battlefield
We are young
heartache to heartache we stand
No promises no demands
Love is a battlefield.

We are strong
no-one can tell us we're wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield.

You're begging me to go
then making me stay -
Why do you hurt me so bad?
It would help me to know
do I stand in your way
Or am I the best thing you've had?
Believe me
believe me
I can't tell you why

But I'm trapped by your love
and I'm chained to your side.
We are young
heartache to heartache we stand
no promises, no demands
love is a battlefield

We Belong
Many times I've tried to tell you
many times I've cried alone.
Always I'm surprised how well you cut my feelings to the bone.
Don't wanna leave you really
I've invested too much time.
To give you up that easy to the doubts
that complicate your mind.

So there you have it, a few guilty pleasures from the deluded and slightly strange mind of mine. The lyrics all sound rather depressing but the songs have the most powerful uplifting effect on me often leaving me in a state of hyperactivity. So what are your guilty pleasures? *musical only please
