What are songs you acknowledge as great, but have heard so many times you just donít need/want to hear again?

Iíll kick it off with:

I am a huge Tom Petty fan but "Free Fallin" is the absolute worst, especially the live version where it sounds like a dirge to me.

And given the season; Paul Mccartney; it is not a great or wonderful Xmas song and should be stuck from existence it's a terrible abomination to the ears.

And speaking of the season, Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" is a legit great song, but, MAN, do I hate it. Blame familiarity for my contempt.

Dirge-ier than "Don't Come Around Here No More"? Boring melody, boring lyrics.

Don't come around here no more
Don't come around here no more
Whatever you're looking for
Don't come around here no more

Shit, even the Ramones said "Hey, those are some repetitive lyrics!"

I could listen to Tom Petty all day long. Except for 'American Girl'. Unless I'm watching Fast Times At Ridgemont High ...

White Rabbit. A great song, but the licensing fee must be about $1.

I like all three hit singles from Joshua Tree, but I do have to admit that they all sound awfully similar.

Not much patience to listen to any classic rock staples that run over 3:30. If they go over 5 minutes, I'm pretty much out and changing the station or hitting Next.

That said, the full-length version of Do You Feel Like We Do by Peter Frampton is always effective. A masterclass in crowd dynamics.

Agree. Some other notable > 5 min exceptions for me ...

Baker Street
When The Levee Breaks
Comfortably Numb
Smoke On The Water
My Sharona (album version with the guitar solo intact)

The longer the better with these, IMO ...
