there are many, but the only two I can pick out are:

Coldplay - Yellow,
U2 - With Or Without You
and
Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven

Now with these cases, they are great songs, but they're overplayed no end which ruins them somewhat. In particular, with the second and third, these are special songs that are not for radioplay. I have to DECIDE when I hear Stairway To Heaven, not you Virgin Radio.

I can understand why stairway to heaven is overplayed, its the most requested song of all time.

I just heard Howie Day's Collide 3 times, each on a different radio station, on the same car trip.

Anything by Shania Twain.

I remember about 5 or 6 years ago Robbie Williams and her just ruled the radio waves here in Britain

I stopped listening to the radio years ago. It's all bland and boring, as far as I'm concerned, and commercials drive me mad.

Well, now that I think about it, the last time I listened to the radio was when I was a regular listener of 89X (88.7 out of Detroit/Windsor, Ontario). This station was very interesting in the early-to-mid 1990s. Then came that rap metal shit, and I promptly turned the radio off for good.

really? i don't think i've heard it yet, and i've been listening to the radio lately (hence the hatred toward system of a down). i heard something that might have been it when i was grocery-shopping the other night, but i'm hoping that was an imitation band.

Man, I truly detest that song. It was on the air for months in my province. Commercial radio here sucks because I think they generally pander to the older crowd, which is a growing majority here in Newfoundland.

I'd love to start my own radio station...ALL u2 ALL the TIME....(said in deep baritone voice). I think I'd call it EOTW....End of the World. I'd play all the classics, b-sides, and every bootleg I could get my hands on.

I hate to say it, but you'd probably hate U2 by the top of the hour!

As a side note, for a while in my area we had an all Garth Brooks channel
