Overplayed songs you never got sick of even a little

    Somehow, despite having heard them as much as everyone else, I've never even once gotten burned out on songs like:

    "Stairway To Heaven"
    "Losing My Religion"
    "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

    I don't generally listen to them frequently anymore, but when I do they're just as robust and gratifying as ever. (I do like them all in the first place.) I'm sure if I listened to more classic rock radio I'd get tired of the 15 songs all those stations play over and over but I don't. Lucky me.

    What songs have withstood overexposure in your ears and still set your heart aflame?

    I can't begin to estimate how many times I've heard it, but it doesn't matter. I like it every time.

    Hard not to get at least a little sick of a song that seems overplayed,
    but first one to come to mind is Carole King's "It's Too Late".

    I guess I'm the only one here who doesn't tire of hearing any songs he likes. Either that, or I don't listen to them enough.
