Overrated and Overplayed Bops Of Yesteryear

  1. That's right, just like there are tons underrated bops in the past, there are many that are either overrated or through some lucky promotion or "placement" made them rise from the ashes and, possibly underservedly, cemented a place in history.

    For me a great example of this is Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time".
    The song was always a very good song, but it has been used so much in movie that feature 80s soundtracks that I just can't stand to hear it anymore. I actually now skip it. It was never so good to deserve this fame, and is certainly nowhere near as good as most songs from Cyndi's repertoire.
     
  2. I could never get into Frankie. Goes To Hollywood's The Power of Love, the vocals annoy me a lot,I like their other hits though.
     


  3. Come at me!

  4. I understand why it was such a big hit but I think that "I Just Called To Say I Love You" does not really deserved to be Stevie Wonder's biggest, most remembered and most played hit.

  5. "Come On Eileen" EVERY fucking wedding, birthday party or event. Hate it with a passion, if someone wants to send me on a shooting spree, put a gun in my hand and play me the song 3 times in a row....
     
  6. Airplanes by B.O.B & Hayley Williams. Jesus Christ this song. Every 5 seconds on the radio. Every 2nd persons Facebook status. Every 3rd tweet. At school, I would hear someone sing it at least twice a day. I wouldn't mind if the song was actually GOOD but it's not. I haven't heard it in years now & I plan on keeping it like that.

  8. I always thought this was overrated and overplayed at the time. Of course I did love it.

  9. Inescapable for that year, and in fact the year after. Always reminds me of university though so it's remembered with fondness!

  10. Love Shack by B-52´s.
    I love them to bits and maybe I would say the same thing if another song of theirs was such an über-hit.
