Songs that Sirius Needs to Retire

I listen to Sirius whenever I'm driving which isn't a lot of hours in the course of a week, but it seems invariably when I'm listening I hear some of the same songs.

With that thought in mind, I'm hoping they retire these songs:

Shout - Tears for Fears
White Wedding- Billy Idol
Jump - Van Halen

Yes, I'm an 80s listener, but they pop up on First Wave and elsewhere.

Any other songs that need to be added to this list?

The problem seems to be that their playlists for all their stations have shrunk dramatically over the past few years. Its the same with The Spectrum and 90's on 9, constantly playing the same 20-30 songs over and over.

Unfortunately Big Radio got into SXM when they hired some losers into top spots there.
Those losers are making sure that SXM is running those play lists formulae that have been proven to work in terrestrial radio.

I wish they would just get rid of the DJ's (especially Madison) and only play music.

I don't mind Cousin Brucie on 60s. Glad they got rid of that one guy they used to have on the 60s station. But otherwise I agree - just program music blocks and cut out the talk. For "commercial-free" stations I hear a LOT of talking.
