Straight from my iPod:

1. Justin Timberlake - SexyBack
The pinnacle of guilty pleasure straight from MTV's Total Request Live fame. Still a great club banger.

2. The Fray - Look After You
All of their songs sound the same but this one hasn't lost its replayability.

3. The Dixie Chicks - The Long Way Around
There is nothing to feel guilty about listening to the Dixie Chicks. They kick ass. The only reason it's on this list is for those who preach against commercialism.

4. OK Go - Do What You Want
It's like Franz Ferdinand but better.

5. Nickelback - Far Away
I like this song and I'm not ashamed to say it...

I couldn't really think of more than 5 great pop songs worth mentioning. But I bet YOU can. Go ahead and add your Top 5 of 06 to the comments so that we can all make a massive playlist of guilty pleasure music.
