Most Annoying Earworms of 2017 and 2018

Part of the reason our world is a fun place is because you can get in the car, turn on the radio, and enjoy the music. But sometimes, there are those songs that you hate, but just keep playing in your head, no matter how hard you try to stop it...
And the past year... oh boy...

The Top Ten

1 What About Us - P!NK

I could go on all day and all night about how much it annoys me when this song gets in my head and stays there for several hours, and how I can't seem to avoid it, even 8 months after its initial release. - allamassal

2 Bad Liar - Selena Gomez

The chorus in this song is, "I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' not to think about you", which is pretty appropriate because you literally cannot get it out of your head after you've heard it. - allamassal

3 Love So Soft - Kelly Clarkson

This song is mostly boring and forgettable, except for the beginning which is the part that always loops in my head after I hear it. After I saw that ad for The Voice back in February, this song was all I heard in my head for the rest of the night. - allamassal

4 No Excuses - Meghan Trainor

If any song is the most annoying earworm of 2018 so far, it's this. Especially the verses. That part makes me think, Oh my God! What has music come to! Not to mention it gets stuck in my head too. Please don't let this be the next ear worm song that I can't avoid. - allamassal

5 Praying - Kesha

On October 17, 2017, I played this song in my head to get the J. G. Wentworth commercial out of my head, only to realize that I was stuck with another earworm and 15 songs couldn't get rid of it. Seriously. I know, you all think this is the best song of 2017, but there are better songs. In fact, I'm pretty sure that this song only became an extremely potent earworm for me because I kept hearing it every day. - allamassal

6 Mi Gente - J Balvin

This song drastically lowered my faith in the music industry, with the annoying instrumental that is looping in my head as I write this! - allamassal

7 Strip that Down - Liam Payne

I still sometimes sing "girl I love it when your body grinds on me" at random. Oh boy, I'd be in trouble if my mom caught me singing that. - allamassal

8 Issues - Julia Michaels

This one tends to get stuck in my head, but I put it down here because it annoys me much less than the songs way up at the top. - allamassal

9 Say Something - Justin Timberlake

This song is decent, but gets annoying after a while if it gets stuck in your head. - allamassal

10 End Game - Taylor Swift

It's just the "big reputation, big reputation, big reputation" part that's annoying. - allamassal

The Contenders

11 Thunder - Imagine Dragons

Swap the ranking of this with Believer, please. - allamassal

12 Believer - Imagine Dragons
13 Something Just Like This - The Chainsmokers & Coldplay
