Name 3 overplayed songs that you love anyway.

Like, of the recent variety? Or ever? Because I kind of stopped listening to the radio about 5 years ago. Or maybe songs that I accidentally overplay?

Rolling in the Deep by Adele

Really, vastly overplayed. I mean, if it's being played at Starbucks, on a loop, and I hear it at least twice while I'm there, it must be overplayed, right? Somehow, the moment I first heard this song, I didn't really pay any attention to it. The second time, however, I was in a McDonalds in Germany. Was it Germany? I think it was Germany. I know that wherever it was, I didn't speak the language. Or know why they were playing English music on the television. Ruy and I decided she was talented. I wonder if he still thinks that, now that I have the album, and have played it on repeat no less than seven billion times. The best part of the song is actually the backup vocals, which are saying "You're going to wish you, never had met me." I like to sing that one when I'm feeling particularly vindictive.

Cry Me a River by Justin Timberlake

Don't even ask. I don't know why I like this song. I don't even like Justin Timberlake. However, every time I try to make a playlist of songs to listen to cheer me up, this song is inevitably on it.

It's Raining Men by Uh...anyone who's done it, basically.

This became overplayed when Geri Halliwell did it. However, I think that's it's just such a fun song that I don't care really that I've heard it 800 times. I think it raining men would be an interesting event, and I would like to attend it. It's a fun visual. Of course, I've always thought it raining cats and dogs was a funny visual as well, and I only *wish* there was a song about that. Right, so I could listen to this on a loop. In fact, I think I'm going to go download it and do just that.

Dancing Queen by ABBA

I'm not sure if this was overplayed by me, or just in general, but I have to have heard this song more times than is strictly safe for remaining sane. However, it was also the first ABBA song I ever heard, and it will always remind me of the road trip with my family in 2006 where my mom warbled along with the song and waved her arms in the air. Great times. It also makes me think of Mamma Mia, possibly the best comfort movie in the history of comfort movies.

That was four songs. That's almost 3.

ADEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I'd say poor Ruy but really I can't bring myself to do it. She's so awesome he should listen to her and like her regardless of how many times he's heard her stuff. The background vocals in Rolling in the Deep are awesome. I love watching vids of her singing it live. She's all into and the backup gals are just bopping along *g*

ABBA *hides* I loved Dancing Queen in high school and then I killed it over playing it one summer around the time they had the fair in the green so August? Maybe.
