Default Most Overplayed Songs of All Time

What are they?

Mine:
-Don't Stop Believing - Journey - Its not THAT great, and Journey had quite a few better songs

-Wonderwall - Oasis - same

-Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen - Wayne's World made this song into a joke and completely ruined it. It was such a complex and beautiful song, and now people hear it and laugh and think that its a funny song. I want to kill Wayne's World

Anything that's on the radio today qualifies. If all you listened to was the radio, you'd think that the Stones never did anything besides Satisfaction and Get Off Of My Cloud, you'd think that Midnight Train To Georgia was the only song Gladys Knight & The Pips ever recorded, etc.

Wonderwall got old the moment whichever Gallagher it is who sings said '...about you now...'. Sorry.

Anything by U2, you would think they would put more songs from the Joshua tree album, instead they put their crappy songs likes Vertigo 25 times a day.

Back in the 90's I had habit of listen to some music on the radio, these days all I hear are the same people on the radio (Bon Jovi, U2, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Shania Twain, Mariah Carey etc...) uhhhh, how sad, they give airtime to billionaires while the good and lesser knowns have to fight just to have one song from them aired

"Wind Beneath my Wings" Bette Midler
"From this Moment" Shania Twain

It could be because I just don't care for those songs, but they seem to be played at every wedding and every love song radio request around.
