#41: Songs That Just Wonâ€™t.. Go.. Away!
Posted on October 1, 2011
To be clear, Iâ€™m referring to â€œfad songsâ€ whose stay ing power seems immeasurable.
Meatloaf â€“ â€œI Would Do Anything For Loveâ€ (Itâ€™s what, 40 minutes?)
Celine Dion -â€œMy Heart Will Go Onâ€
Bette Midler – â€œWind Beneath My Wingsâ€
Los del Rio â€“ â€œMacarenaâ€
Sir Mix a lot â€“ â€œBaby Got Backâ€
The list, and the tidal wave of bad memories it inspires, goes on and on. And letâ€™s not forget the mullet
that launched a song and dance craze, Billy Ray Cy rusâ€™ Achy Breaky Heart.
Itâ€™s just unfortunate his crimes against humanity didnâ€™t end there. Who knows how many â€œAchyÂ Breaky â€s Miley Cy rus has in her?
Songs that overstay their welcome are born of a natural popularity that record companies and discÂ jockey s ex tend for their own agendas. The real victims here are music lovers every where, their audioÂ receptors irreparably damaged by ex tended listening to the same songs.
There should be a government investigation and eventually , hangings.
Any one who thinks that is a tad ex treme can listen to â€Who Let the Dogs Outâ€ ten times in a row andÂ then get back to me.
