    From the list:

    Stevie Wonder - "I Just Called to Say I Love You"

    Barry's Customer: Hi, do you have the song "I Just Called To Say I Love You?" It's for my daughter's birthday.
    Barry: Yea we have it.
    Barry's Customer: Well, can I have it?
    Barry: No, actually, you can't.
    Barry's Customer: Why not?
    Barry: God. Do you even know your daughter? There's no way she likes that song. Oops, is she in a coma?

I loved everything through "Green" and hate everything from "Out of Time" on. I can't think of any other band (other than ones that had a major lineup change like Van Halen) where I've gone from loving them to hating them after in the span of one album.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Wow, Lisztomania by Phoenix is really popular enough to be considered that overplayed?
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    I like that song. I also think it is entirely too new to be on this list.

    I once was driving up to the engineerng building at UD to meet some friends and study. As I pulled into the market lot "hey now, you're an allstar" or whatever the title of that song was, was on the radio. I didn't car for it much then, so I turned the station, only to find it on the next, then subsequently 2 other stations. On 12 presets, in the Dayton/Cincy market, it was playing on 4 of them at the same moment. I know its not on nearly as often now adays, but if I never, ever hear that song again, well that would be OK by me.

    So happy that Lee Greenwood is on the list. That song is #1 to go in my book. Just awful, and people treat it like the national anthem.

    Re: 100 songs that need to go away

    "You 'aint seen Nothing Yet" Stereotypical AOR song from the 70's. What do people hear in that song?
    “Bohemian Rhapsody” 1000 times yes....enough already.
    “Bad to the Bone” Another song like Respect that is played over and over in movies.... just in case a new generation of 12 years old have not heard it.
    Is Smashmouth the equivalent of The Kingston Trio? Every frat guy has to know recite their lyrics and dress in the same uniform?

    The problem is you have old hippies in some stations (KLOS) and a machine in others (JACK FM) out here in LA....who play the standard songs and the DJ's try to be hip by throwing out some modern stuff but like it was a Top 40 set. None of their obscure good stuff..... No "One Tree Hill" from the U2...just the usual "In the Name of Love"....and for the last time BIlly Joel is not rock and roll... "Piano Man" is not rock. Just beacuse you like Billy Joel does not mean he should be played on a classic rock station.

    That machine from JACK will sit there and throw you some Allman Bothers followed by the Clash. Yeah that fits!

    I hardly ever tune into the radio. Download Itunes and what is left of my CD collection (More than half was stolen when my car was broken into and like a dummy i left about 100 CD's in there...going back to 1988 I had these)

    I just saw that Itunes in the IK has Black Sabbath Remastered albums. tried to buy them but I was told my account only works in the US. Can you create a new account in order to download music from the UK at 0.99 pounds?...which is about $1.50 US. Not that I really like Remastered things.... as they have ruined the first Generation X album that was one of the ones stolen and I tried to download from Itunes. First we get directors bastardizing their own movies and now this.

    Re: 100 songs that need to go away

    I was watching the Celtics-Lakers game yesterday and they went to break playing the Allman Bros. Band's "Jessica". My first thought was "what?".

    I could not conceive of a less-appropriate song to play for an NBA game. I wondered who the genius was that picked that song?

    I liked the song the first thousand or so times that I heard it. But that number was reached in about 1985.
