i love the nightlife. i got to boogie.
guilty pleasures. specifically, those songs that we loooove, that we sing along to, or play air guitar to, or dance around like mad to... but, we'd never own up to other people how much we loooove them. we all have a few. 'fess up.

i'm a disco junkie myself. kc and the sunshine band's get down tonight comes on, and it's all over but the crying. brick house? i'm insane for it.

and there's more.

80s new romantic stuff. and not just the mainstream stuff like duran duran and those obnoxious a-ha guys. i'm talking scritti politti. it's a sickness people.

but wait, it doesn't stop there.

my mom was sort of a folksy-hippie type. we drove vw bugs most of my life, and sang along with the local am radio stations wherever we went. dan fogelberg? jim croce? bread? oh, yeah, baby. i'm all over that. anything that screams k-tel 70s soft rock -- i know the words. no one-hit wonder too obscure, no ballad too cheesy. i know no shame.

last night, as i made yet another effort to download christmas songs to wrap up my mom's christmas disc, i decided to indulge myself a bit. i searched for this and that...found pretty much everything i was looking for. but nothing was really scratching my itch. nothing was really turning my crank.

and then...there it was:

ain't nobody by rufus and chaka kahn.

oh. my. god. yes.
