Re: Annoying Over Played Songs..

When I was (ahem), younger the song, We Built this City, came out and was so overplayed that now nearly 30 years later, I still turn it off. Don't even know who wrote the song. Not a bad song, as far as that goes, but oh my, every 15 minutes for nearly a year it seemed.

Starship.

Another annoying Starship song is "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now".

Hey, that's one of my favorite '80s songs.

^ And Diane Warren wrote it. You can't diss her! She's like the queen of 80's ballads.

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.
Well, I think we can put it down to our discrepancy in tastes that we disagree. For one, I don't listen to country. To me it's almost as bad as the Swedish old school "dance band music" .

*Gasp* Don't you dare bring up Rednex with a Swede! You have no idea how we've suffered.

What a coincidence that you brought this up, as I just today found this awesome video that may make you think of the song in a different light!

I still find the song annoying, but I do like the choreography.

I now officially hate you...[OK, one more chance, but don't you ever do that to me again.]

NOTE: I just showed the video to Mom's home health aide for a laugh. She loved it! Told me several songs by them and listed several other groups like them... I don't know if I should laugh or be creeped out!

...and today's kids think they invented "pop & lock". "Now that's old school." "Yeah, no school like old school."

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.
It was John Cale's version that was played in the movie, Rufus Wainwright's is featured on the soundtrack album. And it was Leonard Cohen's song originally. There has been a lot of covers.

You're evil!

The one that really gets overplayed here by them is their version of Cotton Eyed Joe. So annoying. It's a song that otherwise has an interesting history to it, but what they do to is unbearable. And the song you've posted up above more or less has the same rhythm.

Huh. I usually don't make that kind is mistake. Thanks for the info.


As for Rednex, I'd like to clarify, they have a bit old school folk music in there. What I was really referring to as old chool dance band music is...well this stuff...



(Ugh. I can't believe I just linked to that.)
