ABBA and The Bee-Gees are fine...I'm not even embarrassed to tell people I like some of their stuff. On the other hand, probably the most guilty pleasure of mine on that list is Barry Manilow. Not that I'm like a rabid fan or anything, but I will own up to possessing his Greatest Hits album and occasionally doing car karaoke with it on long road trips. (Alone, of course.)

None of the others do much for me.

I selected None of the Above. While I like a few songs here and there, I don't care for any of those artists as a whole.

I don't like her music, but Yoko Ono was kind of a big deal in the Fluxus art movement. If you've ever seen something weird and wondered "how can that be art??" thank Fluxus!

Seems I'm the first to vote for Slim Whitman. Well then.

But the Bee Gees are one of my favorite musical acts of all time. Can't get enough of them.

ABBA and the Bee Gees are definitely guilty pleasures, and even though I do love me some "I Think We're Alone Now" (karaoke favorite), the occasional Tiffany track is a guilty pleasure as well (and even though not mentioned in the song, Debbie Gibson). Speaking of Donny and Marie, I had the pleasure of meeting Donny 9 years ago when he played Gaston in "Beauty and the Beast" on Broadway!

Are ABBA and The Bee Gees actually "Achy Breaky Song" artists?

"You can play the Bee Gees any day"
"Or crank your ABBA records until dawn"

My personal belief and the results of this poll would suggest that they don't really belong with the others that got namechecked.

I agree that the Bee Gee certainly don't belong in the list.They're in my top favorite bands. I also voted ABBA. I think they are better than a "guilty pleasure". Though I didn't vote Village People,but I would consider them something of a guilty pleasure.
Back off me,man-back off.
