Peter Andre is thrilled that 'Mysterious Girl' is one of the UK's favourite guilty pleasures when it comes to their secret musical tastes.
Peter Andre is thrilled that 'Mysterious Girl' is one of the UK's favourite guilty pleasures.
The 47-year-old singer has urged people to ''come clean'' about the songs they love after a new study found up to a third of people lie about the music they listen to, with his own 1995 hit single being played a lot in private.
Peter - whose 'Mysterious Girl' placed eighth - said: ''The song has a special place in my heart, and it's lovely to hear that people are still enjoying it 25 years on - especially as one of their guilty pleasures.
''My guilty pleasures are some of my favourite songs. They're the ones that we really connect with, or maybe grew up with. With the Top 20 out in the open, perhaps we can all come clean about the songs we love.''
The research, which was commissioned to celebrate Sony's noise cancelling WF-1000XM3 headphones, saw Justin Bieber's debut single 'Baby' top the list of guilty pleasure tracks, followed by PJ and Duncan's 'Let's Get Ready to Rhumble', with McFly's 'Five Colours in Her Hair' in third place.
The survey found 65% of Brits love to listen to feelgood nostalgic songs - but 29% lie to friends and family about what they like and one in five even keep their tastes secret from their partner.
31 percent of those polled listen to a guilty pleasure every single week, whilst 15 percent are listening every day.
To encourage people to overcome their embarrassment and come clean about their musical tastes, Song have curated the ultimate 'Lockdown Listening List' of guilty pleasures, with songs from the likes of the Spice Girls, Nickelback and Chesney Hawkes.
