35 Songs Hollywood Needs To Stop Using

"Somebody Once Told Me The World..." SHUT UP
Dear Hollywood,

We know it's hard to cut trailers, and you want to the maximum possible appeal. It's understandable, and we all know the game.

Unfortunately, you've recently achieved critical mass on one subject: overused, hackneyed trailer songs. Sometimes they're indie and soft and intellectual, and other times they are rock numbers that are the equivalent of Matrix-slow-motion fight parodies. Old, tired, and boring. For the audience's sake, please stop using these 35 songs in movie trailers, promos for Grey's Anatomy, and all CBS finale shows.

Thank You,

All Humans
