Nothing to be guilty of....

Tonight ITV1 broadcast a show based on the "Guilty Pleasures" phenomenon which has grown over recent years. Basically it's about songs you love, but you're ashamed to tell the world you love them.

Why? Why should you feel guilty? Good music that you love is good music that you love. I should know. I love everything from the tackiest, cheesiest pop to the trendiest guitar music and everything in-between. But the 'post-ironic' climate today seems to dictate that you should like things in that 'post-ironic' way. Hell, no. Let's just celebrate music, in all its wonderful forms, and that's nothing to be guilty of.
