Enjoyed reading the post about songs that you didn't originally like but are warming up to.

This post is about songs you really liked, over-listened to and they wore out there welcome (some make it back to the playlist though!)


For me, two songs come to mind:

-Why don't we do it in the road - love the tone and simplicity of it, put it on every mix cassette (then mix cd) for a long long time, struggle to listen to it now
-Everybody's got something to hide... - same thing, put it on too many mixes, way overplayed it.

I think the theme of these two songs for me was trying to put generally unheard of songs (unheard by the general public) onto mixes as attempt to introduce others to them or to be "cool".  I like the songs, just is difficult to listen to them today.


Anybody else have stories of Beatle songs that have been banished to not be heard for a while?

The ones I can think of right now : 'Get Back', 'We Can Work It Out' and 'Let It Be' (though I still enjoy its solo very much - from the album version of course).

But then again, I've never liked either of those songs VERY much. When I really enjoy a song, it's kind of hard to get painful to listen to it. I think it has something special that will always make you come back. :)

I used to like Blue Jay way and Only A Northern Song but now they just seem devoid of all purpose and dirge like, painful to listen to and extremely boring

I agree with you in regard to Only A Northern Song, but give a listen to Blue Jay Way with headphones and report back, Kev.

I don't even need scientific proof. I just have experienced it.

Not that I loved it so much but I now am finding myself skipping Sgt Pepper (the song, not the whole album) .... Don't know why, but it lost its touch for me

Everybody Got Something To Hide - I used to think of it as a fun bouncy song but now I just think it silly. Sounds more like a bunch of noise and funny lyrics.
