Guilty Pleasure Music

It’s hard for me to feel guilty about my taste in music, because all of it feels right in my heart. If it didn’t, I wouldn’t listen to it. Most of the music I listen to means something to me. One of the few exceptions is the Jonas Brothers.

While the JoBros and I have a lot of history (nine years, I think), their songs aren’t particularly meaningful. I struggle to justify listening to them, and have settled on the response of “Who doesn’t love the Jonas Brothers?” when friends question my choices. This is not a valid reason or excuse, but they never push further.

My favorite album is their first, ‘It’s About Time,’ which my dad pirated for me when I was in fourth grade. The album features the soulful ballad ‘Please Be Mine,’ their hit ‘Year 3000,’ and a lot of other songs about girls.
