@JohnRoberts has been doing a Thompson Twins songs countdown. I have enjoyed his posts and it made me think what sort of list can I come up with from the decade of my teen and early 20's years. And it came to me, why not do a countdown of the most overplayed songs from that era. I am not saying these songs are bad, that I don't like them but they were so overplayed that I just sometimes still cringe when I hear them on the oldies station. Starting off is Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart. It was on her 5th album, Faster Than The Speed of Night from the year that I graduated high school, 1983. This was her biggest hit of her career. I must admit that I didn't know until I researched on wikipedia that she had that many albums. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcOxhH8N3Bo&list=RDlcOxhH8N3Bo

That is one of my favorite overplayed songs, lol...I was actually singing it during the U.S. solar eclipse over this past summer in 2017, lol. Anything Madonna makes me think of the 80s for some reason, as does The Cure and Depeche Mode and Violent Femmes and Beastie Boys...those weren't overplayed though at the time, they were more "alternative/rock", so didn't have as popular of a following.
