Most Overplayed Songs of 2014


The Top Ten

1 Happy - Pharrell Williams

Reminds me of a hit from the past, "Don't Worry, Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin, which was played over and over and over again, trying to make people Happy. You know, the song with the whistling, and repeating "Don't Worry, Be Happy". It eventually got very annoying to hear it, and even today many years later, nobody ever wants to hear it again.

I can't even go through a single day without hearing this far-too-common song. Just listen, LISTEN to how repetitive this is. I get it, you're happy! Now excuse me I have to go stick my head in front of a jet turbine to get this song out of my head.

By the time you are finished listening to the song you are sick of the ONE phrase that repeats on a four-minute loop. They don't have to play it on the radio so much. I have a twenty minute drive to school yet in this time I sometimes hear the song played on five different radio stations as I flip through.

Can't not stand this horrendous sound

2 Let It Go - Idina Menzel

This should be #1 because a bunch of little girls keep on singing it and my school sings it also so ANNOYING!

Dude I totally agree! I have the exact same problem! This must be number 1

I font know why every one likes it. It sounds like a rip off of " firework"

This got overplayed at my primary school. I'd never seen a Frozen until 2016. I think the film is alright, but a lot of the reception kids sung it a lot!,

Horrible song just horrid also I heard Dark Horse on the radio maybe twice Roar was overplayed far more than that

3 Shake it Off - Taylor Swift

Most overplayed song. It's on every bloody advert. Couldn't they find another song? Shake it off is not even that good

32? This should be way higher! I'm just stick of Taylor Swift in general.

Even today, its still over played.

4 Fancy - Iggy Azalea

Why did this piece of garbage and Black Widow get as much overplay as they did back that summer? Thank goodness all her other songs flopped.

I hear it every time I turned on the radio. Ugh, I'm sick of hearing it.

This has been number 1 on billboard for 18 weeks it's so annoying

Stupid song made of trash whenever I hear this song I range the canel

5 Timber - Pitbull

It hurts me that they call this a RAP song. It's just Kesha singing the same things for 4 minutes.

This song is terrible, and it doesn't help that it's played 10,000,000,000 times a day. Thanks radio.

We're all glad we don't hear this anymore. - Entranced98

This was my least favourite song back in 2014. Why? It was overplayed too much - astroshark

6 Dark Horse - Katy Perry

Even my school plays this every day in gym class. It was okay at first, and Katy is a decent artist with talent, but the song just edged into everyone's heads and never leaves. Pop music always gets overplayed. - ephemera

Overplayed, but better than Anaconda.

I'm sorry America, but this song sucks.

Don't like her but can't ignoe it

7 Rude - Magic!

I swear, this is all I hear. It also sucks.

I can't figure out how the girl's father is being "rude" in this song. Not only does it not make sense but it sounds terrible, and is grossly overplayed.

How is Counting Stars no. 2 on the list? This was once on like 4 radio stations at once last year. - courier28

Hate to break it to you, so called "magic", but you haven't done any magic to this world, so go and take your unicorn and fairy dust back to your magic palace. This song sucks!

8 Counting Stars - OneRepublic

It's great song.. but played to much

Really overrated and overplayed. It's good, but Love Runs Out is way better.

I don't really get why people say this song is overplayed. I never really heard it that much. Also, it's a good song, I don't really see HOW it can be overplayed either.

Never is overplayed. You people are crazy!

9 All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor

Seriously? Counting Stars wasn't even on that much. This was what the radio stations FORCED down our throats during the last few months of 2014.

It's so annoying. I liked it at first but the stations went crazy.

Best song in the world amazing

10 Let Her Go - Passenger

Grating, forced "indie" vocals and a cliche theme. Definitely the most overplayed and overrated song of 2014

I HATE this song and it is played all the frigging time.

Play this too much. Too slow! So tired of it

The Contenders

11 Blank Space - Taylor Swift

I am sick of this song. Earlier it was on 4 stations at once

This song is torturous to listen to. Another Taylor Swift song they over killed

This song is new, but it's pure torture.

Best song on a bad album, hands down. GET HER OFF THE RADIO STATIONS OF THE United States OF AMERICA, NOW!

12 Shut Up and Dance - Walk the Moon
13 Black Widow - Iggy Azalea

, this is by far #1. - WonkeyDude98

14 Talk Dirty - Jason Derulo

I've never liked this song

Talk dirty to me

I like this song


Come on. That's still catchy. - higgsboson2142

15 Roar - Katy Perry

One of the worst and most annoying songs ever Just the pitch in how she sings "roar" alone is like drinking cheap ber that leaves an awful after taste!

You should add Roar. URGH!

16 Pompeii - Bastille

At least Happy's overplaying is starting to die down. This song on the other hand... - ReakMayhem

I love this band and I love this song but it just got played way too much.

So catchy yet funny

17 Negarane Mani - Morteza Pashaei

His voice id incredible

There is some one for ever

This song is my favourite

Who's this guy? Some Indian singer? - RiverClanRocks

18 The Monster - Eminem

So annoying but cool got old after a week

What? I NEVER heard it on the radio - AlphaQ

Liked this song about the first 0 times I heard it.

19 Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

This was from 2013 and still overplayed in 2014. I'm glad I can enjoy it (not like Problem by Ariana Grande)

One of my friends can rap this whole song
