Needs More Cowbell 

I was in my car driving this morning when I happened to hear "Don't Fear the Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult. I can't listen to that song without laughing anymore. I kept picturing the classic SNL skit with Christopher Walken and Will Ferrell.

I've got a fever! And the only prescription... is more cowbell!

The other song that is permaently ruined for me is "Linger" by the Cranberries, which thanks to my brother-in-law Randy, I can't hear without thinking of him farting.

What favorite songs of yours have been ruined by people?

Comments:

"Kids In the Hall" forever ruined "Blinded By The Light" with their skit where everyone got the words wrong.

John Valby ruined "Sound of Silence" for me with his version "Stroking off in Silence"

Oh yeah. The porn industry ruined "Come on Ilene"

Yes... thanks to a friend of mine, I can't hear the words "Come on Ilene"... without immediately in my head hearing "Won't she be pissed."
