Why They're Called Guilty Pleasures

Robert Christgau's latest podcast makes a reference to guilty pleasures. Christgau doesn't like the term, that is used by another writer to describe an upcoming show. Although if you go to his web pageRobert Christgau, and type in guilty pleasure in the text search, you'll find that he's used the phrase to describe Ted Nugent and a Bruce Hornsby song. Christgau believe that you either love something or not. But it's called guilty pleasure because you'd never tell anyone that you love Bread or "Ice Ice Baby". Of course you like 'em, but you know others won't or won't admit to it. Yeah, guilty pleasures exist and always will.
