There are many overplayed songs everywhere I go, but for the most part I don't find them annoying.

Re: Annoying Over Played Songs..

Well, on the radio station that I listen to, I am so sick and freaking tired of hearing:

"Freak Like Me" by Halestorm
"Remember Everything" by Five Finger Death Punch
"Signs" by Tesla
"Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd

What's even worse is when I actually hear people call in and request them. I just want to be like "Wait five freaking minutes and you'll hear it anyways!"

I know they're old, but I still can't listen to these songs after 15 years.
I may be gay, but both of those songs get me "in the mood".

I agree with you. Perhaps, it is because I live in a rural area. We aren't a big city, so we aren't inundated by it.

The best background music is @ our local Dollar Tree. I always end up tapping my toes or lip synching while shopping there!

Personally, I only listen to one radio station: K-Love contemporary Christian radio. There motto: "Positive. Encouraging. K-Love."

It's not a piece of shit, it's a legendary piece of crowd-pleasing genius, it just happens to be vastly overused due to its popularity at sporting events.

They are great tracks, but they are all over used to the point of being annoying now. Especially to a huge Queen fan like myself.

WWRY and WATC are the first two tracks of News of the World, my all time favourite album, but sometimes I wish they weren't as I am tempted to skip them to get to the rest of the album, heard them soooo many times now. It's nice to hear their legacy reverberating around the world 20 years after Freddie died, but there's a huge catalogue of their music that is mostly overlooked in favour of the radio singles.

Tracy Chapman 'Fast Car' Queen 'Bohemian Rhapsody' 'We Are the Champions' -and almost forgot- 'We Will Rock You' ( Damn you for the memories Pingfah) Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson 'To All the Girls I Loved Before'; I pray there is a place in Dante's Inferno for those people and those songs.

What??? I love Adele, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Kellie Clarkson, Lady Gaga, FUN.
Adele is forever awesome in my book because of Skyfall. Katy Perry is totally my guilty pleasure, perfect driving home alone in the car and wail along to the text kind of music. As for the rest....I liked The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars. The one of his that's been playing waaay too much as of late...not so much. I'm just not the target audience there.

As for mine, Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley. I liked this song once upon when it first heard it in Shrek. But it has been played. To. Death.

On the radio right now...one of the umpteen hiphop/rap tracks that plague the radio ways. You fucking live in a suburb to Stockholm, not the hood in Detroit, you idiots....



Oh and also:

At the moment, Daft Punks new song, which is so repetitive it's overplayed after one time through.

Daft Punk is fucking awesome and I will love them until the day I die.

Re: Annoying Over Played Songs..

^ I liked Daft Punk better when they were still vaguely sci-fi-ish, not like the warmed over 70's/80's R&B they seem to have become as of Random Access Memories. I mean, do they even still wear the robot costumes?

Re: Annoying Over Played Songs..

I found out recently that Daft Punk did the song Around the World. Man talk about a repetitive song. I wonder how long it took them to write that one. Of course it was all electronic and I respect it a little more now, but when I first heard it in the 90s, I was like, what the heck is this crap.

Anyway, I like Adele, but she was overplayed. I'm hoping she does come out with a new album though.

As for the genre that I listen to, I find the likes of Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan a little overplayed. It's a shame too because they aren't necessarily country.

I'm one of the biggest Journey fans out there, and yeah, I'm sick of Don't Stop Believin' as well. Although it was overplayed by lots of shows and movies before Glee got a hold of it.
Another overplayed Journey song is "Any Way You Want It".

In the mid 1980's, "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" was heavily overplayed at various video arcades I use to frequent back in the day. This was especially the case if the particular arcade had the Journey arcade game.

^ I liked that arcade game. I was pretty good at it! And I can't stop laughing when I get to the Steve Smith (drummer) part and I lose a life...Steve sinks to the bottom of the screen and gets this hilarious pouty look on his face
