Most Overplayed Songs of 2017


The Top Ten

1 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

This song is horrendous. Why? Some people complain about the subject matter. Unless it's handled in a mature way, the lyricist has failed. Not to mention, it's one of the more annoying pop tunes I've heard. Especially the singing and "humming." This song is, simply put, trash. Don't support Ed Sheeran. He's not a good song writer. You should only support song writers who write something that is well-put together. And a predictable, annoying, boring pop tune fails in every way, shape, and form. - JBDBIB_Baerman

Somebody clearly hasn't listened to enough Ed Sheeran. I bet this is the only song of his you have actually listened to. Plus...he did not write this. - DCfnaf

I've heard this song THREE times in the last hour. It's driving me INSANE. I couldn't even bring myself to watch his cameo on Game of Thrones. Nothing against the guy, he's very talented, but I'm so over-saturated on his stuff.

Yes they are always playing this song like every three songs! Why? At first thought it was cute but now when I hear that xylophone start up I just turn off the radio

When I heard it on the radio, I said:,It's on the radio now? ". Can't wait until every teenage girl will cry over that the song is deleted from every website and does not play on any radio stations. - MinecraftHater

2 Despacito - Luis Fonsi

Another generic and effortless spanish summer hit that will be played on the radio every 2 minutes... - DaisyandRosalina

This song is over the line. It's says let me pass your danger zones until making you scream?! EVEN KIDS LOVE THIS SONG! Not suitable for them, and gets played every hour

I swear to god this song is only liked because JUSTIN UTTERLY GARBAGE BEIBER (tries to) sings in spanish. I'm sick of this crap and him. - BITBBHandBluesCluesFanatic101

This should be #1

3 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

I Hear This Song Too Much

Worst song ever

Decent song, but I kept hearing it on the radio - VideoGamefan5

This was good the first few times, but it has quickly become annoying and played every 10 minuites on the radio...

4 I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift

First time I heard this song, and discovered how atrocious it is, I will never ever think of hearing this ever, first thing I know it's on, I change the station immediately, that's how much I hate this song. Everything about it I hate, my least favorite song of the year, and possibly for my life.

Every time I turn on the radio: "Been sittin' eyes wide open behind these four walls, hoping you call" GETS ON MY NERVES. Kill me if it plays again - Raadicool

Not only is this a bad song (0.5/5), it also fares terribly against overplay. The beat is, surprise, flat nothing. This song's overplay makes sense. After all, if you're going to get two names as big as Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift, who would've thought iHeartRadio would put this in their top fifteen while this song was getting shoved back on the charts along with other hits that should've stayed in the wintertime (think Bad And Boujee).'re better than this...why... - GrimmShady

It was a great song at first but than lost interest because of the amount of times it is played.

13 I'm the One - DJ Khaled

Not only is it overplayed, but it is overrated. Why? The first time I listened to it, was because my friend forced me to. After that, I barely survived. I did not want to EVER hear this garbage, AGAIN. Unfortunately, it played on the radio OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Also, it played on my math teacher's phone when she provided music for us while we were working.

Annoying asf

Look to your left, then look to your right, your "friends" love all of this crap, and are the reason the rest of us are constantly tortured by crap.
