Most Overplayed Songs on the Radio, in Movies, etc..

Unread postby jack_tors » Wed Oct 28, 2009 10:31 am

We have had threads for favorite songs, albums, and songs that representent a generation so I figured I would start one about songs people feel are most overplayed. Mind you this isnt just for bad annoying songs but all songs that are heard so much they drive you crazy. I will kick it off with the following:

Brown Eyed Girl- Van Morrison :Good song but heard damn nearl hourly

Smells Like Teen Spirit- Nirvana: See above

How You Remind Me- Nickelback: Not a good song, not a good band but its ALWAYS on the radio.. He never made it as a wise man and he never made it as a singer either..
“Baseball is like church. Many attend but few understand.”- Wes Westrum

"The future is like a Japanese game show, we have no idea whats going on." - Tracy Jordan

"Gentlemen, Chicolini here may talk like an idiot and look like an idiot, but don't let that fool you. He really is an idiot."
-Rufus T. Firefly

With XM/Sirius radio, MP3 players and CD's (I actually rarely play CD's either) i rarely listen to regular FM radio. Thank God for the aforementioned because the music i like is not being made anymore for the most part. I love classic rock but FM radio plays the hits over and over and over again so I totally understand the thread. IT'S ALL OVERPLAYED!!!

I am turning into my old man. Wolf man eyebrows, hairy ears and all... :gah: :thud:

I'm about sick of anything by Boston. They were good in their day but I'm sick of hearing them on every classic rock station. Which of course is not classic rock at all but classic top forty.

So many good bands from that time period get dick for radio play and many big bands that get played had much better material that goes unheard.

Are we done with that "Gladiator Song-Theme-Thing" yet? Have played it before tip off for seemingly 10 years now. And, it's been in a rash of commercials.

While we're at it- Hang On Sloopy O-H-I-O at non-Buckeye events is the new Y-M-C-A. It's got it's context- in Columbus and with Buckeye students / alums. All well and good. Can't we leave it at that?

everytime i turn on the radio and flip through the stations it's flat out guranteed that one of these two songs will be played

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCZfJ5ai07U

I at firsth thought the song was okay, it sounded very 1995/6 frat boy rockish, which I really don't mind as a music genre. But it got beaten into the ground by being played...on....every....single...radio...station.

How the hell is this a popular song? Kill me now.

Couldn't agree more. It's so sad they have to beg off our tradition to rouse the fans at Browns and Indians games. And I hear they flash the scUM "M" at Cavs games. Sloopy and O-H-I-O are a Buckeye thing.

But then again, maybe hearing Sloopy is the only bright spot while watching those teams suck.

Re: Boston....

I'm sick of anything played on any classic rock station.

I am also sick of that R & B and hip-hop hybrid song, you know, the one with the male rapper and female R & B singer?

Yeah. It's all the same freaking song since about 2003. Even Jay Z.

I'm sensing that this agreement is a little tounge in cheek, as CDT is very good at disguising his smack in sarcasm (believe me CDT, that's a complement). But, I'll take it as writen and I agree that flashing the UM letters or the Stiller helmet, or playing off Sloopy symbolizes a missed opportunity by Cavs marketing to build a uniquely "Cavs" experience. IMO, it hurts the Cavs brand.

Sweet Caroline -Neil Diamond

Was sick of it when they "sang" it in Beautiful Girls.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

I'm serious (as serious as I can be over a obviously trivial thing), Cease. Sloopy is a Buckeye thing, it's been our thing since 1965. Like you said, they've missed the chance to make their own experience. What it tells me is the Marketing Departments for these teams have been lazy and uncreative.

What's next, playing Carmen Ohio after victories?
