I really like a Jack Radics slow lovers track....found it on Mixcloud.

Let's admit our reggae "guilty pleasures"

Why be guilty?? I've seen fine shows by J.R., & there's records by the man I'd drop, knowing they'd sound strong.

nothing guilty about it, but I find myself increasingly enjoying UK lover's rock in the past year or so

I don't feel guilt for loving songs of love.

I guess this one makes me feel a little shame..

Some of the old Big Mountain stuff is a guilty pleasure as well as Bob Marley. I still love Marley after all these years.

I agree with Big Mountain.....better than some of the mysoginist and homophobic dancehall

i.m.h.o.
a guilty pleasure would be saying something like "i actually like the new miley cyrus song" etc
something embarassing. jack radics and lover rock etc are nothing to be guilty of taking pleasure in.

In that case Ras Adam, my guilty pleasure would be cheesy, whiny white boy 80's music...The Cure, Depeche Mode, Alphaville...hehe....

yeah.. i know every song from the cure catalog from 79-87.. check my thread history.. nuff references to the cure.. you can certainly hear the dub/reggae influence in their early-mid 80s works.

other albums from that time that still get a play

modern english - after the snow
the cult - everything from 82 until 87

common theme in all these musics ? heavy heavy basslines.

After the Snow is a great album. They put on a good show too. You're right- lot's of reggae/dub influence on 80's music.

I don't consider it a guilty pleasure as much of classic reggae music is based on it, but most reggae listeners I know in my age group seem to not share my love of country music....
Re: Guilty pleasures

just drew for "journey - greatest hits'

funny.. my headphones went from heart pounding resonating basslines.. to .. well strings, pianos, guitars and a vocals that are easily influenced by sam cook.

BV, I worked with a guy in Arcata that went to high school (and played percussion) with Journey's drummer. I guess his first love is jazz. Also, I heard old school Journey being blasted in the student parking lot yesterday...it was like a high school flashback!

I was about to post that there should be no feelings of guilt when one enjoys a particular piece of music, but then again, "I like" @#$%& like this too:

please.. i grew up all throughout the 80s an early 90s. in north county san diego .. with 91x being the flagship station playing most of these tunes.. so you can bring any cure, smiths, cult, mission uk, bunny and the echo men, souxsie, etc.. all day any day.

as a i said many times before.. i think my attraction to this style of music and to reggae seems to be the upfront bassline. the only exception to that is the smiths..

tune!!!

i remember playing this song in second grade for 'show and tell'





ill have to pull a pic of me back then in my cure t-shirt or was it a siouxsie? cant remember.. but i do remember the shop down in san diego i bought it from courtesy of my chore money.. i think the shop was called 'sessions' or something like that... was pretty much the one stop shop for all 'punk' and 'alternative' music.. i dont think it was called 'alterative' back then.. maybe new wave.. anyway... memories.

Looking back on my musical tastes during the 80's, it seems a lot of the music actually had some kind of message or conscious thought to them. While not overt like reggae, it still had it, although often subtly.
