Thread: "Hey There Delilah" by The Plain White Ts

  1. #1

    Dry

    Many people relate to this song and love it for its elegant melody. It can really strike a chord in those who are in love, especially appealing to the young, unmarried adult/teenager.

    But ... to me it is so overrated, overplayed on the radio in every pop/rock station around (not to mention my little brother's bedroom!). The melody is simple, the lyrics bland. Do I just need to get a girlfriend and get in touch with my more positive emotions, or does this song really suck?!

    Please tell me, when can I turn the radio on again?

    It kinda came out of nowhere didn't it. It was just suddenly everywhere. I hear it all the time and I don't even listen to the radio. Hopefully it'l be gone soon

    It's an OK song, I thought.

    Then I heard it every hour of every day for 2 months now and wish it would just die.

    I really liked it the first time I heard it because it's very catchy. It's obviously being overplayed now and can make people sick of it, but that doesn't make it a bad song.

    The beauty is the simplicity. Listen to some early Beatles songs.

    It's honest,direct,and people can relate. It has stirred a response in you.

    I do agree it is overplayed. I liked it much more when It was only on FUSE. Once VH1,Mtv...so on get their hands on it watch out....!!!

    You just keep pushing. You just keep pushing. I made every mistake that could be made. But I just kept pushing..... Descartes

    I liked the song way back in the day when it's album was released in January '05, but since it hit radios... I can't stand it, probably one of my least favorite songs. But maybe I'm just bitter, I listened to the song back then and no one would listen to me about it, and now the radio plays it and everyone I know is obsessed.

    Even if it's an okay song... it is beyond played out now and I can't stand listening to it.

    Why the hell do they take every decent song out there and overplay it to the point where you want to bang your head on the steering wheel repeatedly every time it comes on, which is 2-3 times an hour?!

    i don't like this song because of it's simplicity. call me arrogant; i don't care how beautiful the song is. at the end of the day, when desensitization kicks in (as it has with Defy), it'll just be another overplayed, over-sung, and overvalued tune.
