Thread Name: Songs you're fed up with playing/hearing
Subject: RE: BS: Songs you're fed up with playing/hearing
Jerry - You're not the first singer to be hounded by his "first big hit"! Not by a long shot. I saw Kristofferson do "Bobbie McGee" in a rather peculiar way on a couple of occasions. He was clearly so sick of the song that he could barely stand to sing it at all, so he started screwing around with it.

Troll - Yeah, some of these are nice songs. Over-exposure can play havoc with art. Imagine if the Mona Lisa was painted on the side of every bus and office building in North America...and a little miniature of it was on everyone's dashboard.
