Lifetime Limit

The backstory: As is the case with any sentient person, I spend plenty of time in the public places that feature music from the easy listening/classic rock continuum.  Over the years, some songs have lost their appeal.  To that end, T and I have compiled a list of songs which have achieved their lifetime limit, meaning we never wish to hear them again.  Over the remainder of 2017, I will post nominees for this dubious honor.  

First up, "Karma Chameleon" by Culture Club.  Nothing against Boy George, but this song has used up its time.  Also having achieved maximum annoyance with a minimum of value is Ozzy Osborne's "Crazy Train."  Is it just me, or does that song last 15 minutes?  Get me off that damned train now. Foreigner's whining effort to get into somebody's pants, "I Want to Know What Love Is," has also outlived it's dubious-in-the-first-place value.  Katrina and the Waves should stop "Walking on Sunshine."  And finally, having achieved maximum ear worm status (it's playing in my head right now), I declare a lifetime ban on Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody."
