You know the songs that get aired at every party or are on constant rotation on the radio. there are a few categories that spring to mind.

Songs that actually have been done to death and seem to have disappeared. eg Eagle Rock and American Pie. ( i haven't heard them in ages)

Songs that just do not go away eg Jessies Girl, Grease mix , Love Shack, Living on a prayer etc.

Songs you loved but are just over it after so many years eg Hotel California

Songs you never liked in the first place eg Nutbush.

Why all the hate for Walter Becker in the first two responses? Man was a genius.
Classic rock radio station for Brisbane plays Reelin in the Years pretty much at saturation. Also plays the "What am I so afraid of" song by the Partridge family and Don't give up on us baby constantly for some reason. I think I've heard them more in the couple of weeks I've listened to the station than people who were alive in the 70's.

Not really on topic, but I have the UNCANNY ability to tune into say Gold 104 at the END of Sweet Home Alabama (which is one of my fave songs)- every ****ing time- the end of it. Ffs.

I guess you have never been to an Eagles home game :)
I'm surprised Summer of '69 hasn't been mentioned yet- still like it, but it's certainly done to death. Same with Karma Chameleon.

Beds are Burning by the Oils. Its an incredibly repeated song on French radio.. I ****in loved it as a kid and I loved the oils.. Even had a 10-1 singlet at a 12 year old.

Hallelujah... by any artist. This was a staple when I was busking and bought in many dollars, but heard it too many times.

Hotel Cali for sure, Stairway for sure, and Bohemian Rhapsody with it's 4th rejuvenation is at my witts end (loved the film BTW, however inaccurate).

And although it's a 'new' song that Shotgun song can **** right off.. Boring, inane lyrics, shit ******* tune and I just want to wrap a cricket bat around that guy's head. Turn that shotgun on yourself ya campaigner!

Your Song , Forever Young , Summer Rain , Time After Time and Walking in Memphis are a few songs that are in the /will never get sick of them category for me . Love them until the moon and back :)
