30 day song challenge: day 16 – a song that you used to love but now hate

*I'm taking the song challenge to mean "of all time," not genre-specific. Any of these songs are subject to change at any time.

 

I love 10,000 Maniacs and Natalie Merchant. Loved them since 1986. In my book whether with the Maniacs or not, Natalie Merchant has never put out a bad song and it's not that "These Are Days" is a bad song — it was just played to death. Whether on radio, MTV, or high school graduations — this song was played out. I loved this song in 1992, as I did the whole Our Time in Eden album, but for me it was one of those songs that was ruined by overexposure. The same thing happened with "Losing My Religion" by R.E.M. That's also I song I can't listen to anymore. Ugh.
