List: Overplayed Songs (Updated)

audioeclectica_logo1

A long while back I started compiling a list of the most overplayed songs ever. That’s not to say that these songs aren’t good, just that if you hear them one more time you just might stab your ears with an icepick.

As always your input on this list is greatly appreciated. I’m very interested to see what you all come up with.

List: One Album Bands

audioeclectica_logo1

I was thinking the other day while looking for something to listen to about how many bands are out there that have only one album. Whether it’s by choice a la The Sex Pistols or because the band was dropped/broke up or even a one time project, I thought it would be quite interesting to compile a list of all those bands and albums.

Your input is always welcome!
