Not guilty

I enjoy the “new music mix” on the new, ridiculously named Crave 95 radio station. But I object to the automated DJ introducing songs by calling them guilty pleasures.

“Dirrty” is a guilty pleasure. So is anything by Britney Spears. Animotion’s “Obsession” is not. (It’s an 80’s classic.) Neither is Lenny Kravitz’ “American Woman.”

What kind of marketing plan is it to tell listeners they should be embarrassed by the songs they like listening to?
