Guilty Pleasures


doesn't usually give publicity to Albums, but occasionally we make exceptions!  The idea of "Guilty Pleasures" is that you love the tracks, but are embarrassed about the fact, so much so that you listen using headphones so nobody knows!

Therefore, we thought it would be an idea to produce a Top 30 chart if we get enough responses (probably 500 or so).  Click the e-mail link below and let us know your top 5.  We will award 5 points to your favourite, 4 points to your 2nd etc until 1 point for your 5th favourite.  Meanwhile, if you let us, we will reproduce your Top 5 on a page accessible from somewhere in this page!

To give you an idea, we list below the track listings for the Guilty Pleasures CDs so far - you never know, SONY BMG might put your track on the next CD, but we won't tell anyone!:

By the way, if you want to purchase the albums, the covers are linked to Amazon!

Launched on 2nd August 2006, we have received 13 responses so far, but only TEN were brave enough to allow their chart to be published.
