Remember the "good" old days of radio when you'd hear a song over and over and over (etc) to the point that you felt like blowing chow as soon as it came on?

And now years later, you hear it and think "that wasn't all that bad, I actually kind of like it."

List yours here, I have three:

Feeling Stronger Every Day - Chicago

Lola - The Kinks

Hey Jude - The Beatles

Honky Tonk Woman by the Stones
Bridge Over Troubled Water, I Am a Rock - Simon & Garfunkel
Maggie May - Rod Stewart

These seemed to be on the radio A LOT when I was in high school and after awhile I'd want to scream when I heard them starting up but I like them all now.

I'm sure I have about a hundred more... those ones just struck me (and you did mention currently liking the tune in your criteria ... now overplayed and still drives you nuts... )

I can only think of one.
Ramblin' Man-Allman Brothers Band

Stairway To Heaven could be one,but I STILL don't like it because it was overplayed!

Edit: Okay, let's do this right:

quote:
Honky Tonk Woman by the Stones


Ever hear the Taj Mahal/James Cotton cover of that?

It's pretty darned hot. Hell, what's a little piracy among friends, eh?

From the same album (Paint it Blue: Songs of the Rolling Stones), Luther Allison's version of You Can't Always Get What You Want has always been a favorite:

http://www.naprapathicmedicine.edu/temp/cantget.mp3

Back on topic, you can put me down for a little Stairway to Heaven and Freebird. I only listen to them maybe once each every year, and they're some certified Rock and Roll classics!

ok since you asked:

Early Madonna songs, house music, drum and bass, other types of EDM (electronic dance music), Counting Crows songs like A long December and Omaha, rap/hip hop (Wu Tang, Ice Cube, Erykah Badu, The Fugees, Lauren Hill, NWA, Snoop/Dre/Tupac, a tribe called quest, and Cypress Hill), songs by the cars that get played constantly on the radio, Billy Joel's Allentown, Tori Amos, early songs by the Breeders like Cannonball that was played constantly on the radio when I was growing up (I actually like the album last splash and their new album), funk by Jamiroquai that I've heard on the radio, Mary J. Blige, The Eagles' one of these nights, early music by the shins (I loathed the movie Garden State), the B-52s, early disco, Donna Summer, my friend and I used to make fun of his dad loving Abba but we enjoy some of their music too, Cyndi Lauper's Shebop/Girls Just wanna have fun, early Elton John before he became THE EGO that he is now <g>, early Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono band-songs like Why/Why not-Mindtrain-Greenfield morning I pushed an empty baby carriage all over the city-Kiss Kiss Kiss-Walking on Thin Ice-and Have you seen a horizon, Berlin-Take my breath away, Amy Winehouse's songs that aren't about Rehab, early Grace Jones' songs like-I need a man/Nightclubbing/Warm Leatherette/Love is the drug/Fame/Don't Cry It's only rhythm, The euyrthymics'-Sweet Dreams, various songs by new order, songs by Blondie, Weather Report's song Birdland, Nelly Furtado-Maneater, songs by Le Tigre, Scissor Sisters' I don't feel like dancing/take your mama out, and Duran Druan's Rio.

I like the above songs/artists/music because it reminds me of different times in my life, different friends/people I've dated, times I was driving/traveling, and various queer/mixed crowd bars/clubs I've hung out in and danced in.

Hell yeah on Toto's "Africa"....that song is fantastic....even if a little manhood just excaped me, I don't care.

Saw Umphrey's McGee cover it once in Jamaica....did a phenominal job of it too (think its on youtube).

Love that song, even though I have to shotgun a beer and watch some football after hearing it to make myself feel better.

This has happened so much, I can't even list them all. In fact a lot of music grows on me a lot...

Okay, here is one "A Touch of Gray" by Grateful Dead
