View Full Version : Songs that never get old no matter how many times you hear them...

Inspired by listening to Dark Side of the Moon right now and "Time" came on. Everyone's heard this song a couple hundred times easily, but you're a liar if say you're tired of it (or you just have bad taste ;)). There's some other classics I feel the same way about, definitely Skynyrd's "Simple Man", most old Sabbath, Nugent's "Stranglehold", Boston's "Peace of Mind'. Name some of your "I could listen to that song every day the rest of my life and never get old of it" tunes, doesn't have to be famous ones or anything.

Haha I just thought of another topic while listening to this record, "Which songs do you always skip on an album cuz you're sick and tired of hearing them?" (see: "Money") :D

At least its followed by "Us and Them", another song in the same esteem as "Time."

Compliments of 107.7 the Boner.

"Money" is great! Overplayed by classic rock stations, maybe, but that doesn't make the bass line any less awesome.

My list would be huge. One that springs to mind is "Car" by Built To Spill.

Yeah Nick for me I'm just burnt out on that song, like if it comes on the radio I wouldn't be nearly as stoked as if "Time" or even "Speak To Me/Breathe" came on.

There's really a ton of songs that fit this, or at least songs that I first heard many moons ago and still love just as much.

Hallowed has to be the biggest one though.

Maiden in general I'd say (with a very small few exceptions). ;)

edittt: Definitely "My Kantele" by Amorphis also. I've listened to that song so many times, and not ONCE felt tired of it.

Love both versions of that - I could listen to the sitar part on the acoustic version of that for hours

I think listening to that song once should count as listening to it twice.

So technically if you listen to it half of billion times before getting sick of it, it's still good. :tongue:

The latter definitely, the former however is a perfect example to me of "WAY overplayed" :D

I can barely listen to that song once without getting sick of it, and I like Blaze and Blaze-Maiden quite a bit.

On the subject of classic rock radio staples that I just happen to love:

Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son.

Speaking of overplayed radio songs, I remember the summer than Tool put out Lateralus the local rock station played the living SHIT out of "Schism," but I never got tired of it. Such a great song.

Honestly if I heard any particular song every day for two months or so I'd probably get sick of them. But if I didn't listen to that song for another two months, I'd probably get back to liking it again.:D
