    I can still enjoy the song, but I sometimes think of the end scene of Sopranos.

    Whenever I hear Stealers Wheel's "Stuck In The Middle With You" it reminds me of Reservoir Dogs.

    I still like the song, but I remember hearing Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It" in a commercial for a cleaning product. When I was a kid, that song was rebellious! Then it became a jingle :guilty:

    I guess I'm kind of over it now, but several years ago Playskool (I think) used Walkin' on Sunshine for ALL of their toddler toy/gadget commercials. I don't know if it was just the particular channels I watched most at the time but it seemed like there was a dang Playskool commercial every single break.

    I've never seen Reservoir Dogs, but the song Stuck in the Middle with You makes me think of the stupid Fruit of the Loom ad with the little bikini underwear hanging on a clothesline.

    "We Are Family" by Sister Sledge was ruined for me when the Pirates used it as their theme song in 1979 when they beat my team, the Orioles, in the World Series. I still think of that whenever I hear it.

    I HATE that song. I swear I am the only one who does. I cringe whenever it comes on.

    It isn't ruined at all (gives me chills every time, actually), but the Supremes' Reflections is now forever in my mind associated with the Vietnam War, because of what may be one of the very best TV titles sequences ever; from China Beach.

    Zach Braff and his navel-gazing movie Garden State did a real number on "New Slang" -- in fact I think it took years for the Shins to recover from it!
