    Oh yeah, it's a great song by one of my favourite bands. My problem is that it's the only Dexys tune that broadcasters seem to know! It's not even the band's best song...

    Perhaps, but it was one of only two songs of theirs to reach Number 1 (in the UK at least).

    Like that means anything!;) I mean, The Fall have never had a number 1. What does that matter?

    The 'Selfie' song is probably the worst pile of S*** I have ever had the misfortune to hear.

    ^ Oh, if we're talking about simply BAD songs (not necessarily overplayed)? That would take up an entire server, let alone thread.

    I won't poison teh interwebz by actually linking to this abomination, I'll just mention the phrase: 1985 Chicago Bears. :eek: :eek: :barf: :ouch: :gunbarreltothehead:

    I'm compelled to mention that the title of that song should have a comma after the word "on." Otherwise it has a completely different meaning. ;)

    Another overplayed oldie: Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely."

    I find myself singing along to songs I hated in my teens and twenties. Most recently, Shake Your Booty by KC and the Sunshine Band.

    I haven't even heard about most of the songs mentioned in this thread. I don't even know the artists. (I usually hear about artists when Weird Al covers them. And hear them repeatedly afterwards.) Why are you listening to them if you don't want to? :p It's your own damn fault! ;)

    Alas, even though I have the luxury (i.e. headphones) to choose what music to listen to at work, I always end up playing some song I hate over and over. And it happens unconsciously, I don't know how I start it, nor how I find it, but I do. So choosing your own music doesn't seem to help with this madness. One week I'd have Black Smoke by Prodigy played until my brain has ripened, another it will be Eaten by Bloodbath until I am noticeably dangerous and armed with cookware, the next one it will be something by SNSD until people warn me that I am kicking them while I am dancing, and I switch to King Crimson until I am sleeping on my desk and so it goes. The musical torture never ends.

    Playing that abomination should be considered torture under the Geneva Conventions.

    That song can be summarized in a single phrase:

    "Ooh, look at me, I'm a whiny emo brat".

    The end.

    Carl Douglas, 'Kung Fu Fighting' periodically plays through my head. Usuall, when the school Komdo Club (Korean swords) is practicing outside my class window.

    Oh yeah, worst thing about that is that it was written as a joke and was never meant to get the exposure it got. But somehow it got popular...

    Some of that might be down to location, as different songs might play more frequently in some locations.
