Seriously. Are people fucking retarded or just have no taste? almost 98% of all videos contain these two songs:

and

Why...

Because they appeal to the masses and are laden with some sort of strong emotion - sincere or not.

I suggest you come to terms with it.

Probably because they are amazing songs. I agree that they are overdone, but not many people deny the fact that the artist and composer are brilliant.

I'm assuming by "Requem" you meant "Requiem for a Dream" composed by Clint Mansell (and usually performed by the Kronos Quartet)?

I would click your link and just verify this myself but i'm in a library and they don't take kindly to loud noises.

I'd add Chasing Cars to this list as well.


nobody goes there anymore. its too popular.

It's not taste they lack it's originality.

Requiem is pretty much used for comedy now since it's been overused for drama.

I did it.

I'm just glad I don't do a drinking game for icon modding. I've heard Requiem for a Dream so many fucking times that I dread hearing it now.

the original is better anyway, but I'm probaby biased because Kurt Smith is a family friend. Can't find the actual music video

Oh you beat me to it STEM. Although I'm probably biased, being a huge Tears for Fears fan. The Gary Jules version isn't bad, but Tears for Fears came out with original and IMO, better version.

As for Requiem for a Dream, i don't find that song all too appealing, so I'm pretty indifferent from it.

At least it's not that god damn, stupid, MOTHERFUCKING, BLIGHT UPON THE VERY EXISTENCE OF THE INTERNET piece of shit techno that turns up in every god damn single motherfucking conceivable place on youtube.
You know exactly which one I am talking about too. It's used to often for you to not have heard it at least once. Damnedest thing is, for all the times I've heard that ear AIDS, I've never once heard the name of the song.

Maybe because....
everyone is not a music composer and can't just create a track that fits a mood, so they use one that has already been created.

Music tracks in the world to events in the world ratio

That and "CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES!" are also horribly overplayed. Good thing they were never good songs to begin with.

Born with Nothing Die with everything is a WAAAY better song by papa roach, but I don't see it too often.

You mean Dreamcape? There's another one that could relate to what you're talking about, but I forget what it's called. Either way, the only people who like them are either 12 years old or have a serious case of Aspergers.

I don't see why it gets all the hate it does. Sure, EVERYBODY uses it, but it's a good song. Maybe a little corny, but good nonetheless.

Well, maybe I wouldn't hate it so much if it wasn't used by EVERYBODY, and they ALL SEEM TO BE DEAF SO THEY PLAY IT AS LOUD AS POSSIBLE. Hard to like any song after experiencing that.
