    If I hear that song one more time, I'm gonna...!!!

    We all know that radio stations tend to play the same songs over and over and over. People tend to do the same thing. People tend to find a song they like and play it frequently, with zealous, full of joy, on repeat for all the world to hear.

    This thread is dedicated to songs that seem to be everywhere, all the time, in a never ending loop. This thread is for those songs that make you stop what you are doing, clench a fist, and wave it around in the air like a cranky old man.

    The song that has inspired this thread and put me into fit of fist-waving-old-man rage is Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Isreal Kamakawiwoole.
    No more. Enough already. We get it. Somewhere over the stinking rainbow. My ears are bleeding already. Make it stop!!!

    Yes!

    This song is getting on my nerves:

    Josh Turner's - Your Man:

    Baby lock the door and turn the lights down low
    Put some music on that's soft and slow
    Baby we ain't got no place to go
    I hope you understand

    Iíve been thinking 'bout this all day long
    Never felt a feeling quite this strong
    I can't believe how much it turns me on
    Just to be your man

    There's no hurry
    Don't you worry
    We can take OUR time
    Come a little closer
    Lets go over
    What I had in mind

    Baby lock the door and turn the lights down low
    Put some music on that's soft and slow
    Baby we ain't got no place to go
    I hope you understand

    Iíve been thinking 'bout this all day long
    Never felt a feeling quite this strong
    I can't believe how much it turns me on
    Just to be your man

    Ain't nobody ever loved nobody
    The way that I love you
    We're alone now
    You don't how
    Long Iíve wanted to

    Lock the door and turn the lights down low
    Put some music on that's soft and slow
    Baby we ain't got no place to go
    I hope you understand

    Iíve been thinking bout this all day long
    never felt a feeling that was quite this strong
    I can't believe how much it turns me on
    Just to be your man
    I Can't believe how much it turns me on
    Just to be your man

    Any song by the Black Eyes Peas or Justin Beiber.

    Both are not talented, they just make catchy crap.

    Extraterrestrial by Katy Perry. And pretty much anything else by her too. She can't really sing, but she can yell really loud.

    I have only heard it a half dozen times, but that is far too many.

    Now I just listen to the 80's/classic rock stations and NPR.

    Just Dance by Lady Gaga. Every girl I have recently dated has loved Lady Gaga. So I would get the privelege of hearing this song on radio and via CD! Joy!

    That dude sounds like Kermit the Frog.

    I'm definitely sick of hearing Lady GaGa and Katy Perry--the only problem is that my preferred morning show is on a pop top 40 station. My circle of friends has a little bit of crossover with the host of the show, so I've had the opportunity to talk with him a little about how radio programing works. He is actually forced to play certain songs in particular time slots, with many of them coming from these two 'singers.' He's more sick of the music than I am. Bruno Mars is about to be added to the list as well.

    My wife is a huge Dixie Chicks fan. While I like them, she played them constantly while we were dating.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Why does Sirus XM radio recycle through the same 50 or so songs, no matter what station it is? My workplace has it, and since they've been playing the same station for like the past month, it's staring to get annoying. It seems like a nice concept, I just wish Sirius would realize that there are hundreds of songs from the 80s, 90s, 00s, and today that they can play, rather than the limited list they seem to go through.
