I’m massive MASSIVE music lover, but sadly, some wonderful songs get ruined by constant playing across Radio, Music Channels and even as incidental music in TV Shows. I’ve assembled a collection of 8 songs that have been ruined by overplaying. Can you think of any more? Whack them in the comments.

First up.

8 – Country House – Blur

This is a hard one for me.. I love Blur, a lot. But this cheeky, cheerful song from Blur’s ‘The Great Escape’ made me smile, a lot, but then it got to No. 1 and, well, it all went very very wrong. Played constantly on the radio and the video splashed liberally over all the music channels cemented this song’s place in overplayed music history.

    I’m so with you on the Clean Bandit track. I had it on a running playlist earlier in the year and eventually couldn’t listen to it without thinking about ready meals (kind of annoying when I was trying to exercise). The Toploader one makes me think of Jamie Oliver for some reason. Was it in an ad of his or a TV prog he did? All very annoying anyway.
