Do you sometimes dislike the song because many people like it?

I consider myself a music lover... but I sometimes feel that when a song is shared by many people and it makes it kinda look cheap... I tend to dislike it... It's like the song isn't for you anymore but for all the people. And the special quality of it diminishes as more and more people like that particular song... Do you have a song in mind?

Usually I find that a new song will come out from a popular artist, Britney Spears, Fergie, whatever right and I will HATE IT! just because of who it is singing it.. then I usually end up liking it and listening to it when no one is watching lol

yeah girl...you are right...There are a lot of songs which I hate just because a lot of ppl like it... also sometimes it happens that I like the song initially, later on when it becomes too much popular i start disliking it...!!!

It's like having all the CORRECT answer in a quiz and hates it because there are so many of you who got a 100 score... Where the fun in that right?

It really doesn't bother me when other people like the songs. What bothers me is when I hear the same song over and over on the radio and on television. Then it gets old really fast. Usually what happens is a song will come out, a lot of people will like it and I will hear it a lot, since I hear it so much I start to like it, and then a few days later I can't stand to hear it anymore!!

I do that quite a bit. It's not always with songs, though. If a lot of people like a book or a tv show or a movie, or even an actor sometimes I'll boycott them in my mind, and I will be bound and determined not to like their work, regardless of what it sounds like/is about/how good it is. It's a bit stubborn of me, but since it's not really deliberate, I'm not going to complain about it too much. Besides, I'm sure it must be okay, you and a few other people on Mylot do it too. It can't be that bad, right? (haha. Kidding, kidding. I don't need others to validate my actions, but it can't hurt to help convince you that I'm not crazy. hehe)

hmmm I think this way about movies, I think when you hear so many people saying great things about a song or a movies you have great expectations with it then when you hear the song or see the movie you get a little let down. Personally I mainly stick to music of my independent friends so I guess unfortunately don't get a lot of people listening to them....

I thought it was just me who felt like this. The more people like a song the more it does feel unimportant or drawn out. The song that comes to mind is the song 'Iris' by the Goo Goo Dolls. Everybody knows that song. I used to like it because it spoke to me. And I still like it, but I rarely listen to it. Anything that is overplayed on TV or the radio gets old really quickly.
