Songs that were played all the time on the radio/tv/movies when you were a kid/teen

You know how some songs get SO POPULAR that they play them virtually everywhere for the span of 6 months to a year to the point where you get sick of hearing it...and then after a while the song sort of disappears and nobody talks about it much anymore outside huge fans?

There were so many of these from when I was a kid/teen or in my 20's:

- Who let the Dogs out?

- How do I live without you? I want to know

- We are Family. My brothers and my sisters and me!

- Why can't we be friends? Why can't we be friends?

- Hit me Baby one more time!

- Teenage Dream

- Hey oh, let's go!

- My achy breaky heart!

- Wind Beneath my Wings, Soar higher than an eagle

- I will always love you - Whitney Houston

- You are not alone

- Thriller

- Eye of the Tiger

- Spice Girls songs like "Tell me what you want"

And more recently a few summers ago, "Call me maybe!"

You, uh, mean Blitzkrieg Bop, right?

Anyway, the song I can remember playing the most is All Star by Smash Mouth.

Hmm bit of Nostalgia..... My sister and I were playing songs just last week from the late 90's... and ended up in that 80's..

There were loads of songs...but some of them...
16 weeks at number one (here) - 1991 Bryan Adams 'Everything I do I do it for you. Played to death on the radio, but I still liked it.

Spice girls, wanna be... I was so sick of that.

Shy Guy, I hated that.

Wind Beneath my Wings. I think that became a popular funeral song at time.

NKOTB - The right stuff.

The Bodyguard soundtrack was popular in the early 90s and the Dirty Dancing soundtrack in the late 80's

The list could go on... but I won't

When I think "overplayed" in my youth I go to "How You Remind Me" by Nickelback and "Ironic" by Alanis Morissette.

Well I was born in 1990, so I remember several songs form the mid-late 90s. Not gonna list obvious ones such as Smells Like teen Spirit by Nirvana.

Here's two I remember in particular that seem to have been forgotten by most people:
