Prompted by the lovely Nick and Desperado, one of his Guilty Pleasures, I thought I might kick this off, mostly because my music collection is full of them but there might be some that I felt so guilty about that I instantly forgot.

I will kick off with two...

Wichita Lineman, Glen Campbell. It's just beautiful and I listen to it most days, just cos it makes me happy.



I also love Hall & Oates, I know it's cheese but it's ace. Get you coat, Daryl, you've pulled...



What are yours?

I guess, but it doesn't make him guilty now.

Donny Osmond. Not now but if I hear Puppy Love I still well up inside thinking I am going to marry him.
Leo Sayer - Just a Boy (album) and song from the album Giving it all Away. I think Rod Stewart sang it too.

I'll get me coat.........

I'm worried about you Egg...

Dickster, my grandad loved Gilbert O'Sullivan. Clair, it was. And the Brotherhood of Man, he used to sing Save All Your Kisses for me and dance with me around the living room. xxx

not a massive Gilbert fan but Nothing Rhymed is one of the greatest songs written

I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

I've always liked Gilbert O'Sullivan with "Nothing Rhymed" & "Alone again Naturally" being 2 of my favourite tracks. But its the lyrics that get me. For example...

"When I'm drinking my Bonaparte Shandy
Eating more than enough apple pies
Will I glance at my screen and see real human beings starve to death
Right in front of my eyes" .... Nothing Rhymed
Released in 1970, this verse more than likely refers to the famine in Biafra which was the first exposure for many people in the west to a humanitarian crisis in Africa. They have always stuck in my mind

and this always brings a lump to my throat.....

"Now looking back over the years
And whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears
And at sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul,
Couldn’t understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally
Alone again, naturally" :cry: (sorry)

Gilbert O'Sullivan, greatly underappreciated

I never use the term 'guilty', but I listen to plenty of "eyebrow raisers".

Gilbert is a brilliant songwriter.
