Songs you do not need to hear again in this lifetime

What are the songs you have heard enough times for one lifetime? They aren’t necessarily bad, just that you’ve heard them sooo many times that you just aren’t getting any pleasure from hearing them again - or maybe you never got any pleasure from them in the first place.

Some on my list, off the top of my head:

Down Under, Men at Work

I Will Always Love You, Whitney Houston

Smells Like Teen Spirit, Nirvana

Love Shack, B52s

I know I’ve got more but I just can’t think of them right now…

Let your love flow… :eek: :mad:

Da Da Da by Trio.

How Bizarre by OMC.

Bad to the Bone

My Heart Will Go On. If I never hear that song again, it’ll be too soon.

‘Copacabana’ - Barry Manilow. Since we’re on the subject, ‘Can’t Smile Without You’ is another one that I detest.

867-5309 (Jenny) by Tommy Tutone
Come On Eileen by Dexy’s Midnight Runners

Not that I hate those songs, I just don’t need to hear them anymore.

I was gonna start this thread a few times and never got around to it.

Free Bird
Anything by Kenny Rogers
Anything by the Steve Miller Band after Boz Scaggs left the group.
Anything by Boz Scaggs
Do You Think That I’m Sexy

Seconded. And thirded. And fourthed for good measure. The “lite” radio station at the place I worked when that song was popular had the same song list every day, and that one played three times per day. Never blended in as background noise like all the rest… always stood out and made my skin crawl.

Another one I got real sick of real fast, and could live happily never hearing again, is The Proclaimers’ “500 Miles”.

Christmas Shoes

Wow, I have over half of the ones mentioned on my ultimate favorites MP3 CD. Let me know if you want a copy.

For me, it would be “It’s Gettin Hot in Here” by Nellie I think.

Boulevard of Broken Dreams. Good song, but I have a 13-year-old son who is very in to Green Day, so I hear that song about 18 times a day. I have it memorized. If I ever want to hear it again, I can just access the part of my brain that holds song lyrics.

Muskrat Love.

Anything by:

Britney Spears
Christina Aguilera
Any boy band

All Star, by Smashmouth

Particularly in movies. Jeez.

Good call.

“Who Let The Dogs Out”

That’s what I came here to type.



I Will Survive, by Gloria Gaynor.
My Doorbell, by the White Stripes.
Last Christmas, by Wham!
