    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:


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

    ^ 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? :lol:

    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.

    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 :guffaw:

    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.

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

    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...:guffaw:[OK, one more chance, but don't you ever do that to me again.:devil:]

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

    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! :p

    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...

    Those two. Not so much the third one.

    Anything by Justin Bieber.

    Any phone holding music.

    Wonderful Christmas Time by Paul Mccartney... I HATE this song with a passion. :scream:
