How about Elton John? I still love me some Tumbleweed Connection, Honky Chateau or Madman Across the Water! 

I don't ever play a gig without doing Daniel and sometimes, I even do Your Song...the early years were good years

Alright, after a complete review of my records, CDs, tapes etc. I believe I may have found the ultimate "guilty pleasure". How about Melanie? I got a brand new pair of roller skates is frothy perfection! I love that song!

I used to work with the recording engineer on that Melanie record. He had worked with many greats over the years Dion and the Belmonts, 4 Seasons, Tommy James  and the Shondells, were among his favorites. Once I asked him what his least favorite recording job had been. Without pause he said it was the sessions for I've Got a Brand New Pair or Roller Skates by Melanie. While he found the song insipid, Melanie found it hysterical and could not get through it without breaking out in gigles. The producer made her do take after take. If you listen to it again, the final take fades out to her breaking into laughter.

It still works for me. Silly ain't so bad you know. Buggs Bunny, Loony Tunes, Monty Python, Peter Sellers, Jerry Lewis, Three Stooges ... I love all that stupid stuff!

How about Melanie?   

No need to feel any guilt there. I LOVE her album "Candles in the Rain", the one with the spoken word introduction that is a prelude to "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)". Also, if you haven't heard it, the greatest hits compilation "Beautiful People: The Greatest Hits of Melanie" has the full seven and a half minute version of "Lay Down". It's fantastic!
