Any kind of activities with 'favourite ladies' is a long gone vice of the far distant past....

I never felt guilt, just intense anxiety of the wife [at that time girlfriend]
finding out...

On that occasion that she did, she went violently ballistic - so I've tended to behave myself ever since...

It's a now lot safer and stress & injury free just keeping a harem of guitars...

Defining a "guilty pleasure" gets tricky, don't it. I might say that one of my favorites is a bit of skinny dipping with my favorite lady when I get a chance, but then again I don't feel at all guilty about it.

I find wiping it on her curtains covers the guilt adequately Steve.

Guilt is two things really. Guilt because someone tells you to be guilty (religious mind control nonsense) and your own sense of guilt kicking in.

Farting in church v farting in a crowded lift.

I suppose these days I have to declare watching old Top Gear episodes as a guilty pleasure....

The priests at my school made all us wretches guilty about everything. They told us to raise our eyes to heaven and pray to the Blessed Virgin whenever we were washing our "private parts". Dammit, guilt if you washed 'em and guilt if you left ' em dirty...

I quite enjoy some Carly Simon..I think that "Boys In The Trees " is her best album. What is you favourite Steve ?

Ahh, that's a hard one. I must confess that most of my Carly collection is from the early days. My first fiancée (I'm not a bigamist - she broke it off, sensible girl) bought me No Secrets and it brings back a memory or two when I play it. Hotcakes filled my head with earworms which I carried around for a blissful five weeks hitching around Scotland in 1974. "Haven't Got Time For The Pain" always reminds me of hitching along Loch Ness from Ballachulish Ferry. Don't ask me why (could be a thread theme in that...). I've made up a pick 'n' mix collection for playing in my car. My very favourite songs are "Mockingbird" (I love to try to sing James' bits), "Nobody Does It Better", "Reunions" (ah, the bitter-sweetness of lost youth...), and, supreme among them all, "Anticipation". That one's coming on the desert island.

When I said " guilty pleasures" all I meant was those things that fall outside of usual field of interest. I did not mean to offend Ed by not consulting him personally, NPR did I mean to suggest that these thing were somehow inferior. So let's us not get to argu Bathurst about it, ok
I love all kinds of music but some of the things I enjoy are outside my usual areas of interest...that is all I meant! So, I love Natasha Khan , tinned oysters, freeze dried garlic,Shrek films and the occasional fast food meal.
Nothing posh or sinnister, just good fun!

Unlike some people here I don't consider what I liked as a much younger person to be inferior in any way to the much more "mature" and/or "cool" music I listen to as a pensioner unless, of course, you ignore "Sparky's Magic Piano" and Linda Scott singing "I've Told Every Little Star"!
Great thread.

Hi

Like Dave I have no guilt, but I like many of the admitted "guilts" by most of the above messages.

Oh Steve I love Carly Simon and in fact James Taylor too.....LOl

If I were to feel guilty I guess it would be Macallan 30 year old whisky.

That would be a virtue and I don't do them on a Wednesday. Mind you, I do occasionally pick up Mr Windle's frying pan, although mainly for the odd occasion people want to join in a chorus song so volume rather than virtuosity...

If you haven't heard me you aren't missing anything. Bringing my new toy this week if you can make it. Music Room in Cleckheaton are having a bit of a sale and lots of good guitars at half price so I wandered over and got an Eastman dreadnought.

Steve and his Carly Simon fixation... Never knew you were so vain.

My guilty pleasure would be ligging in bed after Mrs Musket has gone to work, reading Rebus crime novels.

Oh and hidden in its case in a box room off a spare bedroom?

A banjo.

But for Clapton's sake, don't tell anyone.

Come to think of it, buying a £4k guitar and telling her it was "a few hundred quid" means I'll never get to Narnia....
