    You've heard this new New Year song or not:

    "di da di,
    di da di da di da di da di da di....."

    Sung by Troll Sisters or something.

    You could say the same for Christmas songs.

    The songs are played often as they are the enduring classics.

    Many songs are written but only some succeed and remain in the collective memory of the public.

    You were irritated because:

    a. the same song was repeated often in a short space of time.
    b. it was played very loudly through extremely low quality sound systems.
    c. the singer/s and musicians chosen for the low budget song production were terrible.

    It will be different if you heard a CD of CNY song by an outstanding singer through a good hifi system. No constant repetition of same song.
