29 Guilty Pleasure Pop Songs You Absolutely Shouldn't Feel Guilty About Loving — LISTEN

I think we've all experienced something like this before: there you are, sleepily driving to work in the morning, just minding your own business, when all of a sudden, the Spice Girls' "Wannabe" comes up on your iPod. In an instant, you're screaming "Zigazig-ah!" and dancing along to the track like a maniac. You feel incredible. The person in the car next to you is probably staring (correction: they're definitely staring), but you don't care! The song is just too damn good to sit still. Of course, if anyone ever asks, no, you do not like the Spice Girls, and, no, you do not know all of the words to their songs. That would be ridiculous! They're just a "guilty pleasure," that's all — your little secret. Sound familiar?

We all have songs that we don't want to admit to liking from time to time, but today, I'm urging you to try to have a little less shame in your music game. The term "guilty pleasure" is often used to describe music that is supposedly so bad that people feel "embarrassed" listening to it, but the way I see it, if you're enjoying a song on any level, then the artist and/or composer must've done something right... right? Right! So, the music really isn't that bad, and there's no reason to feel ashamed!

That being said, here are 29 of the best, catchiest, and most outrageous "guilty pleasure" pop songs from the last 10 years that you absolutely, 100 percent should not feel guilty about loving:

Natasha Bedingfield — "Unwritten" (2005)

AvrilLavigneVEVO on YouTube

"So what if I go out on a million dates?" is an actual line from "What the Hell." I'm in love.

This track is pure ear candy.

MeghanTrainorVEVO on YouTube

Yeah, "Lips Are Movin'" is "All About That Bass 2.0," but it's super catchy, so I don't really mind.

Lil' Mama — "Lip Gloss" (2007)

LilMamaVEVO on YouTube

Just so we're clear: this song is about magical lip gloss. OK, just wanted to make sure we're all on the same page.

Miley Cyrus — "The Climb" (2009)

HollywoodRecordsVEVO on YouTube

The lyrics speak to me.

Bella Vida — "Kiss Kiss Me Bang Bang" (2011)

SteveAATW on YouTube

Bella Vida is (or was?) made up of Baywatch star David Hasselhoff's two daughters, Taylor and Hayley. I have no idea what the song's about, but I'm obsessed with it.

JoJo — "Too Little Too Late" (2006)

HDORecords on YouTube

Tell him, JoJo!

Mariah Carey — "Touch My Body" (2008)

"Let me wrap my thighs all around your waist, just a little taste..." = lyrics of the century?

Ebbie Valencia on YouTube

Guaranteed to make you feel like you can take on the world.

DHT — "Listen to Your Heart" (2005)

Robbins Entertainment on YouTube

I'm always up for a cheesy up-tempo remake of an already cheesy '80s song. Always.

JordinSparksVEVO on YouTube

Anxiously awaiting Jordin Sparks' comeback.

Shontelle — "T-Shirt" (Bimbo Jones Remix) (2008)

One of my forever jams.

Nicki Minaj — "Starships" (2011)

Anyone who can make it through the first chorus without smiling is a mutant.

Amy Grant — "Baby Baby" (David Audé Radio Edit) (2014)

AmyGrantVEVO on YouTube

Yes, this song did need a dance remix, thank you very much!

Neon Hitch — "Gold" (feat. Tyga) (2012)

Daisy Annabelle May on YouTube

It's kind of irresistible.

Jessie James — "Boys in the Summer" (2010)

paige4peace on YouTube

Jessie James knows what she wants, and what she wants is for guys to take their shirts off. I can't really argue with that.

Lindsay Lohan — "Bossy" (2008)

nicolás andrés on YouTube

Why wasn't this song No. 1 everywhere for months? I'm at a loss.

Glee Cast — "Loser Like Me" (2011)

GleekDaily on YouTube

The show's best original track.

Selena Gomez & The Scene — "Naturally" (2010)

SelenaGomezVEVO on YouTube

I think I like this one so much because it reminds me of '90s bubblegum pop band Aqua.

Taylor Swift — "Love Story" (2008)

TaylorSwiftVEVO on YouTube

Beautiful. (Just kidding. It's pretty cute, though.)

Iyaz — "Replay" (2009)

iyazlive on YouTube

Iyaz's first (and only) hit single is so catchy, it's almost annoying. Almost.

Britney Spears — "Radar" (2007)

BritneySpearsVEVO on YouTube

An endless onslaught of hooks (and horses for some reason).

Reba McEntire — "Turn on the Radio" (2010)

RebaMcEntireVEVO on YouTube

With its "hip" references to texting and Twitter, this song feels a bit like a desperate attempt by Reba McEntire to remain "relevant"... but it's also really sassy and fun, so who cares?
