Nothing against the Sonny and Cher song but it's certainly not a tune I'd want to hear to start my day at 6 a.m. And there are other tunes that I've heard too much in my lifetime. They give me the shivers.
There are a few songs I really liked when they were released, but in my most humble opinion, they've been overplayed on the radio through the years. When they come on, I tune them out.
It would be a nightmarish "Twilight Zone" experience for me to be stranded on an island with the following songs blaring day after day after day.
Here's my list:
"Sympathy for the Devil" — The Rolling Stones
"Ride Captain Ride" -- The Blues Image
"The Devil Went Down to Georgia" — Charlie Daniels Band
"Money" — Pink Floyd
"American Pie" — Don McLean
"Nights in White Satin" — The Moody Blues
"Dueling Banjos" — Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandell
"Piano Man" — Billy Joel
"Stairway to Heaven" — Led Zeppelin
"More Than A Feeling" — Boston
"Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" — Rupert Holmes
"Bohemian Rhapsody" — Queen
And there are a few songs I didn't care that much for when released so they're automatically tuned out:
"Muskrat Love" — America and The Captain and Tennille
"You Light Up My Life" — Debby Boone
"Tragedy" — The Bee Gees
"Band on the Run" — Paul McCartney and Wings
"You're Beautiful" — James Blunt
And then there are a few songs that are difficult to categorize because they can be like a virus and stick in your head all day:
"Achy Breaky Heart" — Billy Ray Cyrus
"The Final Countdown" — Europe
"Macarena" — Los Del Rio
"Party All the Time" — Eddie Murphy
"Anna (Go to Him)" — The Beatles
"The Candy Man Can" — Sammy Davis Jr.
"Hungry Like the Wolf" — Duran Duran
I'll spare you those irritating Christmas songs. Bah humbug!
Let me add that after not hearing overplayed songs for a while, I don't mind listening to them again. Just not an overdose. It can kill you!
Until the next time . . .
