You know these songs by heart. Bands with a huge catalog and tons of songs. Yet, you reach for the dial just as fast as the opening notes sound out, because you can’t stand the pain again. You held out through the commercials because you thought it was going to be something decent, but nope, it’s yet another song they’ve ran into the ground. They are… THE REPEAT OFFENDERS.
Pink Floyd “Money”- Every time I hear the sounds of the coins, I cringe. Most of the songs off “The Dark Side of the Moon” have been overplayed, though there are many other great Floyd songs. How about “San Tropez” off the “Meddle” album.
Bruce Springsteen “Glory Days” - This song has a horrible shouting vocal that rings in my ears for hours afterwards, yet it’s incessantly played. There’s plenty of deep cuts off other Bruce albums that deserve a spin or two, but I’ll accept “On Fire” from “Born in the USA” at this point just to stop the ringing.
The Who “Behind Blue Eyes” - This one from “Who’s Next” seemed to die out for a while but has had a revival due to a nu-metal band covering it, but let’s dig just a bit deeper past “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again” and maybe try a little “Getting In Tune”.
Of course, there’s plenty of other bad songs radio won’t stop playing - I’m looking right at you Styx! And you can find these and many more at your local library. Don’t forget to hit the skip button.
