    Stranger in Happenstance by Caulfield. I can't stand that one, and in fact I detest all of his stuff. Oh, wait. Didn't he do Welcome Back?

    I detest "Benny and the Jets" by Elton John. When it comes on the radio I change the station faster than you can blink an eye.

    Pretty much anything by Paul McCartney after the Beatles broke up.
    No Billy Joel for me.

    I can't understand anything Elton sings.
     
    The only song of his I really like is "Rocket Man". And I think that's from when I was a sci-fi addict when much younger.

    The musical genius "Freddie mercury" with Queen.  He was double crazy and triple outstanding.  I believe his best tune was "Bohemian Rhapsody"

    Hank Williams, Sr.'s stupid Cow-a-whatever "Indian" song.  Pretty much everything else he wrote was pure poetry.
     
    ------------------------------
     
    The fact that many Hip-Hoppers and Rappers are centi-millionaires offends me almost as much as Yoko Ono being paid any attention to for any reason - including condescension, whatsoever.

    Edit:  I just realized that the topic was "Superstar Musicians", not ordure. 
    Sorry to have been "off topic" by mentioning Hip-Hoppers, Rappers, and Yoko Ono.

    This is off topic a bit but still about superstar musicians.
     
    Way back when, some... (oh crap has it been that long ago)
     
    I would DJ our local school's "Just Say No To Drugs Dance"s.  One night everything was flowing just right kept the kids happy and the chaperone's too.  It was closing time for the dance and there were only about 4 kids left in the civic center. 
     
    Time for some "slow hand" not even thinking I put the CD in the player and hit play, just as two of the parents walk in....
     
    "Cocaine" starts up REALLY LOUD!!!!! " />
     
    We hired a DJ the next 3 dances

    Dearfolk,
       Any major artist has records that have been SO overplayed that they're as abhorrent as trying to eat dust for lunch. One time on my radio show, I'll bring a modest example and play the entire record backwards... I'm a fine hand at taking a turntable out of gear and approximating 45 rpm backwards in neutral. -- I've done it with "Noollab Wolley" by The Yellow Balloon (backwards backside) and the likewise flip of Napoleon XIV's "They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha - Haaa!"

    BTW, it's off topic, but Hop Wilson has NEVER been overplayed.

     I'd agree about one (mediocre) hit wonder Chubby Checker, but Fats Domino?

    Dearfolk,
       Chubby Checker is so likeable and decent a guy that his music's repetitive nature is immaterial. His first record, "The Class," is one of his best. So is "Loddy Lo," written by him (with assistance) about his wife. At 71, he can still twist. And he and Loddy are still together.
       As for Mr. Domino, he never gets tiresome to me. Dude's 85 years old, stands 5'6", weighs 270, and can play for six hours without a break. His career began in 1949, and he still plays in New Orleans.
       Change the station if you like, but I won't!

    I'm sure the guys are great Musicians, I simply hate the same old overplayed tunes that Siri/XM constantly play. I liked "The Twist" in it's day but a bazillion playrs later, I actually hate it. Mr. Domino never had a hit I cared for plus my cousin constantly did impressions of him, poor impressions, a contributing factor, no doubt to my feelings!
    Respectfully from My Blue Heaven, CTF!

    CTF,
       You're right about Overplay City. That's why, when I'm on the radio, I tend to play underplayed records, even if repeating a few every couple of months simply because they're unknown and so good that they deserve a re-airing.
