They can play any crappy song all they like because I don't listen to the radio. Even when I'm shopping, I can tune it out pretty well.

You know what song all the oldies stations have been raping to death lately? "Wonderful Tonight" by Clapton.

It's not an awful song, although it is boring as fuck, and just doesn't hold up after a bunch of plays. Granted, you could say that about most of Clapton's solo work, but that and "Cocaine" are all you can really catch. Maybe sprinkle in the odd play of "I Shot the Sheriff" or "Lay Down Sally", or sometimes even "Tears in Heaven" or the Unplugged rendition of "Layla".

I dunno, it's all the same to me, really. I wish they'd play good Clapton more often, like Cream or D&TD.

Sir, do you have any Warrants?

I hear a lot of "After Midnight" myself.  "Cocaine" spins a lot too.

You don't hear Cream on the radio at all?  They play "White Room" quite often.

What's the name of that song with the whistles? Because that's been playing everywhere I go.

There's a lot of songs with whistling...

Do you mean "Moves Like Jagger", though? That's a pretty recent one that comes to mind. And it overplayed as fuck around here.

Not really. They used to play "Sunshine of Your Love" fairly regularly, but I can't recall the last time I heard that or anything else by them on the radio.

Yeah, it's that one. I've been hearing it like every 10 minutes I'm outside. Like it's haunting me or something.

I keep hearing Sexy and I Know It everywhere I go, every channel I'm on, every station I tune into.

But the worst part is, it went from being terrible to irritating to a complete earworm. After my sister showed me the music video, I couldn't help but laugh every single time I thought of it.

On another note, have I mentioned that I think that Journey are overplayed as fuck?

Because I do.

I love Journey, and really the only song I don't like because it's overplayed is "Don't Stop Believing".  The classic rock station around here only plays songs like "Any Way You Want It" and "Wheel in the Sky", at least as far as I've heard.

There's also "Stone in Love" and "Separate Ways" which get played a lot here.

I dunno, I just think that AOR is the blandest kind of music on earth. That or post-grunge.

Those are both awesome songs though. :-\  "Any Way You Want It" and "Stone In Love" both show off Neal Schon's awesome guitar too, along with "Feeling That Way/Anytime".

And I love Arena Rock, stuff like REO, Boston, Foreigner, and Kansas.  I just don't really like Styx.

Well Boston I do like, but the rest do nothing for me.

Along with Zeppelin, Skynyrd, The Eagles, and Aerosmith, Journey was a band that I was raised on that I still like and hold a great deal of respect for.  Other bands, like GnR, I was raised on also, but for the most part I couldn't care less about, and some, like Motley Crue, I only half-like.  But those five were the key players to me growing up.

Meh, AOR has some really good stuff. But post-Grunge has next to none. You can listen to a Nickleback song and the rest all sound exactly the same.

If I never have to hear "My Heart Will Go On" ever again, I'll be one happy pappy.
