GUILT-FREE PLEASURES (A Defense Against The Dark Arts): "Freedom" by Wham!
There is really no such thing as a guilty pleasure in pop music. Unless you happen to love neo-Nazi ditties or glorifications of hatred or violence, I'd say it's okay for you to dig whatever you wanna dig. Yes, even the hits of The Eagles. Why? BECAUSE THEY...
