Please Stop Playing that Song Part II

In the past two days I have heard not one, not two, but three more songs that I never want to hear again.  This is becoming an epidemic with me and I figured now was as good a time as any to add to my list.  You all know how this works so no further explanation necessary.

In the Air Tonight – Phil Collins – The year was 1981 and I was in high school.  I had been a fan of the music of Genesis and actually went and purchased Phil Collin’s debut solo album, Face Value.  I thought this song was too slow and kind of “just okay”.  However it became a huge hit and to this day is still played.  I can make the argument that no one actually likes this song and that really only listen for the fantastic drum break near the end of the song.  Well I have heard it more than a thousand times by now and I am damn sick of it.  It is such a boring song and it needs to go bye bye.


Love Shack – The B-52’s – I will gladly admit that there was a time that I would sing along with Fred Schneider and knew every word.  I loved this song, but now it is just too much fr me to handle.  I now cringe when it comes on the radio.  It’s a staple on classic alternative radio (Sirius XM First Wave) and I do have a tendency to listen to that quite a bit, but then when this comes on I switch to Classic Rewind.  The tin roof is rusted and needs to collapse or be torn down.


Cenetrfold – The J. Geils Band – Okay, my blood runs cold whenever this song begins.  Again, I loved it when I was in high school back in 1981.  I loved the video and could have sworn that was Martha Quinn in the lingerie.  It was not, but that was milk in the drum, yes?  Either way I think by now that Peter Wolf has gotten over seeing his high school crush naked in a magazine.  So let’s stop playing this one too.  On a side note it is worth mentioning of the passing of guitarist and namesake of the band, J. Geils.  Rest in Peace my friend.  You made a lot of good music, but take this one with you.




  1. I vote for burying “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Hand them the bill. Breakfast is over. Time to go home.

    • Oh that’s a good one that needs to be stopped.
