The Top Ten
1 Before You Go - Lewis Capaldi

OK, so I didn't listen to radio this year, so nothing is really overplayed for me (except maybe Circles) so I think I'm a fair judge of this. So, first of, and sorry if this sounds harsh, Lewis Capaldi has one of the worst voices of all time. He sounds like he is screaming with every sound he makes. But this song is different. Before You Go might be the only great Lewis Capaldi song. Heck, it might be the only good song he'll ever make. The subject matter in this song really suit his otherwise, unbearable voice. It feels really raw. So yes, this song is very good in my opinion

2 Blinding Lights - The Weeknd

This song may be overplayed but it's so damn catchy that I never get tired of it even after 1000+ listens, which is rare for a song this overplayed.

Though this song is overplayed, I still love it. The Weeknd is awesome!

This is pretty overplayed that I'll admit. It's still a great song though with 80s vibes

3 Say So - Doja Cat

This song isn't that overplayed now, but boy was it ever in the spring.

Never heard that song but I might like this one if I listen to it.

I actually like this song but it's the only one I like by her.

4 Memories - Maroon 5

Remember when we all were saying that Maroon 5 songs were really just Adam Levine songs? Well it's the same thing here, except now the music video clearly proves that point.
At least "Girls Like You" was kinda catchy -- this on the other hand is one of the most lifeless songs to hit radio

I can't help but think if some new singer sang this song it wouldn't even be as half as popular. Maroon 5 can get away with making basic songs like this because they've reached a point where they don't have to try to be creative anymore they can play it safe and shove out these generic songs that people will eat up till it's overplayed as they've established a loyal fan base.

5 Someone You Loved - Lewis Capaldi

Don't get me started on how overplayed this dreadful song is, why is he straining his vocals like that.

I liked this song at first but then I grew sick of it because of the overplay treatment it got.

VERY overplayed. I liked it at first, but it just got too overplayed.

6 Circles - Post Malone

I don't mind this getting overplayed I think it's a good song one of the few songs today I don't mind I sound old saying that I'm only 21 but a lot of music today is not my style.

This along with Someone You Loved and Loose You To Love Me are so overplayed!

I like this but it's overplayed.

7 Break My Heart - Dua Lipa

This and Before You Go are why I don't listen to the radio as much as I used to.

Awesome song, but it is very overplayed.

Gets annoying after like 3 times.

8 Watermelon Sugar - Harry Styles

My god, I respect Harry Styles even if I Hate his music, but this song is annoying. Especially when your mom plays this 15 times a week in the car.

Number 6? This should be number 1! It's been shoved down our throats all year!

This song is good, but it feels like it gets played every ten songs.

9 Don't Start Now - Dua Lipa

This is a pretty good song although it gets played a lot. It's one of the better songs on this list along with Circles.

This is overplayed but I still love it. Every time it comes on I start dancing.

10 I Hope - Gabby Barrett

Ah Hate Me 2.0, except for the fact this is even worse than "Hate Me".
That is what the radio decided to give tons of exposure and airplay to for months and possibly still is happening today (I haven't listened to my normal station in sometime so I don't know).

The worst part is it doesn't have much of a basis nearly no one is buying or streaming this song but radio stations decided they must want to hear it anyway.

This song plays every 10 or so songs on my local radio station. So annoying!

The Contenders
11 Savage Love - Jason Derulo

At least Break my Heart is somewhat enjoyable. This song is so annoying, get it out of my head. When I heard pop music was getting better in 2020, this isn't what I meant. Just stop playing it everywhere please

I have a feeling that this is the next big radio hit. It's really starting to climb in airplay.

Most overplayed song of 2020. Terrible, terrible, terrible and annoying.

12 Dance Monkey - Tones and I

It just comes to show that even the more innocent songs of today can be quite hate-able. Decent inspired production, insanely intolerable vocals to keep listening to. Somehow this went one of the most popular songs because it sounds different I guess? I don't flipping know who thought overplaying it was a good idea.

This song really does hurt my ears. Every time I hear this on the radio or elsewhere, it makes me want to throw something at the radio. It's honestly that awful. Probably one of the absolute worst songs I ever heard of.

13 Intentions - Justin Bieber

MY GOD this song is the most annoying in my opinion, worst than Senorita or Watermelon Sugar.

These are the only good songs on this list:
1. Intentions
2. Stuck With U
3. Rain On Me
4. The Bones

Pretty bad too, I said on yummy that the songs were awful in this album. pretty bad and nothing special

14 Senorita - Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello

To be honest it is pretty decent. Still, very overplayed, though I will admit it is barely ever on the radio anymore.

It just sounds like another generic love song.

Pretty decent song but overplayed and was #1 for too long. both singers are more talented than this

15 Rain on Me - Lady Gaga

I added this song to this list when I didn't like it. Now I can't get enough of it!

My goodness, this song isn't bad but it's so repetive and it gets annoying after the first time.

I used to hate this song but it grew on me so much and I now love it!

16 Hot Girl Bummer - Blackbear
17 Good as Hell - Lizzo

A 4 year old song now all of a sudden being overplayed?! Stop pushing these talentless artists in our faces it's obvious they're spending a lot money on radio stations playing this garbage all the time.

18 Rockstar - Dababy
19 Yummy - Justin Bieber

Thank goodness I don't hear this song on the radio anymore.

Am I the only one who never heard this song on the radio?

20 Roxanne - Arizona Zervas
21 No Guidance - Chris Brown
22 Lose You to Love Me - Selena Gomez

This song is terrible, I miss it back when she was with The Scene, she had better music that time.

I like this song but it's severely overplayed...

One of the most overplayed songs of all time.

23 Baby Shark - Pinkfong

Am I the only one who never heard this song on the radio?

24 Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake

More like 2016. Still annoying that it got overplayed though.

What? I haven't heard this song a lot on the radio in 2020.

This song was overplayed in 2016, it was annoying, I don't think it was overplayed in 2020

25 All I Want for Christmas is You - Mariah Carey

Uhh...this song is only overplayed when Christmas music takes over the radio.
