    The one that stands out for me is "Band on the Run". They played that poor song to death.

    A song that I like DESPITE hearing it 1,000 times "on the radio" is Bohemian Rapsody.

    edit: what I meant of course was Bamhienon Rhapsody

    "Crazy". Even Gnarls Barkley themselves agree.

    Also, one you probably don't know because it's by a Dutch singer, "A Night Like This". But they stopped playing that for a while and when I heard it again last week I liked it again.

    I don't know it, but I'll try to find it.

    I turn on the radio in the car.

    Smoke on the Water.
    I turn it off.

    Deep Purple has so many other great songs!!!
    Why is this the only one they'll play?
    I like the song but I can't stand how much it's played.

    Smells Like Teen Spirit spoke volumes to me as a teen. Now I usually turn it off.

    In reciprocal to the original question, one song I do still adore after hearing it probably over 3,000 times in my meagre life span is "Wonderful World" by Mr L Armstrong himself.

    It always enthuses a smile for me.

    I used to have "Mountain Song" by Jane's Addiction recorded over and over again on a whole side of a tape (remember them?).
    I could listen to that over and over and not get bored the whole 45mins.
    Is that strange?

    You're not the only one. It always makes me feel happy. I am not - it should be obvious - the greatest fan of humanity, but this song never fails to make me feel a bit more love for my fellow humans. Mind you, it does have to be Satchmo singing it - anyone else's voice just won't do it.

    Mind you, that may well be more to do with you having grown out of your Teen Spirit than with over-exposure per se. It is not a song which ages well with its listeners.

    Agreed Richard. It's a pure classic. Definitely a top desert island disc choice!

    It's in my head now! 🙂 🙂...

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
    They're really saying I love you.

    I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more than I'll never know
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world
    Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    One can't help but smile at the beauty of simplicity.
