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

I listened to that whole album. While some songs were, in the end, not BAD, or even decent, the album itself wasn't good in my opinion. - JBDBIB_Baerman

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

To be fair, this song wasn't intended for kids to listen to, they just heard all the older people were, but even they don't know what it means. The song itself is innocent unless you look up the english translation. Bieber did ruin though 100%. Not to be racist at all but he is the stereotypical spoiled little white boy dirtbag, and can't pull of the romantic latino vibe. It just wasn't intended for people like him. - cat_f

Why was this song as huge as it was? Seriously, I have never understood. Was it because of Justin Bieber (I would not be surprised)? Was it because of how upbeat it was in such a dower year? Was it because we needed a song to compete with "Shape of You" (which is also a very overplayed song)? I do not know. All I know is that I do not want to hear this song again and if I do, I will want to throw up.

It baffles me how enough people liked this song to make it so popular. - YungGarlic

3 Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift

I feel as thought Taylor Swifts music career as gone from Okay to Cringe to Hey Everyone I'm Trying Way To Hard To Make Music So Can You Please Buy My Music No Okay I'll Go I've Over Stayed My Welcome In The Music Industry. But the song Look What You Made Me do is complete trash I don't like this song if you can even count this as a song its more of a first degree murder to my ears. So I do think this song has over stayed its welcome and should be forbidden to all.

This is just an example of music today, and that joke where she's dead, yet nonstop playing.

I don't care what haters say about her songs or anything but I love her song if it is country music or pop music I love look what you made me do

Is that ACTUALLY Taylor Swift. I am TOTALLY gonna text u #Fangirltime

4 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

I still find it hard to believe that this won Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards. RIP music. We will all miss you. - allamassal

Very catchy but the lyrics are a bit sexual. Overplayed a lot. - Lunala

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

I rather hear 24K than this - ParkerFang

5 What About Us - P!NK

I just went on another car ride. Heard this song 3 times in 30 minutes. It's driving me ' INSANE. I almost got punished for complaining about constantly hearing this song. - allamassal

I have heard this song about 5 times in one day. Whenever I hear this song I want to shove a carrot up my ass. - ItsPisces

This song has been so overkilled by the radio that even just reading the title bothers me - allamassal

Apparently they are now using this for a movie trailer, meaning we'll hear it every single time we watch T.V.. As if 5 months of hearing this every two minutes on the radio and having it stuck in my head for hours wasn't bad enough. Also, I just heard it on the radio AGAIN. THERE IS NO WAY OUT! I WILL NEVER BE FREE FROM THIS EARWORM! - allamassal

6 Body Like a Back Road - Sam Hunt

The fact that it is on the charts is enough of a reason. - DCfnaf

Ugh! The absolute worst of the worst! I'd rather hear shape of you 10 times in a row than this! - DaWyteNight

The beat sounds like a preschool song's beat. Obnoxious sexual song with no talent. - Lunala

Sounds like if dj mustard did country music - DaWyteNight

7 Mi Gente - J Balvin

Most overplayed song on the radio right now apart from that P! nk song. While What About Us isn't bad, just horrifically overplayed, THIS on the other hand is garbage with a capital G. That annoying beat that sounds like a dying goat on autotune, yet playing every hour on car radio. - allamassal

8 Love So Soft - Kelly Clarkson

Of course, this song doesn't get played that often anymore because everyone except Kelly Clarkson fangirls who like anything with her name on it got sick of hearing this song. But six weeks ago, you couldn't go anywhere or watch Nick Music for more than 10 minutes without hearing this song. Which is kind of strange because this is by far the worst song in Kelly Clarkson's discography. First, I thought this song was okay. Then I thought it was bad. Then I thought it was garbage. My faith in her as a singer was severely shaken after listening to this garbage. At least it did not win the Grammy it was somehow nominated for. - allamassal

I used to kind of like this song, but it was overplayed and then it just got boring. - lovefrombadlands

The worst song of 2017

9 Strip that Down - Liam Payne

It's catchy in an awful way. The kind of catchy where you just wish you had never heard it, but yet still listen to it because it's stuck in your head. It's a better version of shape of you, but Liam Payne is a below average and boring singer at best and his voice is obviously so heavily computerized, taking any human qualities out. - DaWyteNight

The first part of your comment actually reminded me of What About Us, that inescapable song that always gets stuck in my head. - allamassal

I love this song

From all the ex 1d song, this song was the most sucks - InsaneRockfan

Whoops wrong song. My phone acted up and made me say this song was "Not too bad". NOPE. I loathe this song. It's talentless autotuned garbage.

My parody of this song:
Whenever I hear this awful song it really really annoys me
Yeah yeah
Because it's talentless autotuned trash, just end my life in 1, 2, 3
So, get a noose, loop it round my neck, hang me in a tree!

10 Closer - The Chainsmokers

Just overrated. End of story. It had its time being cool but just overrated and overplayed now - Randomator

Heard it once. Heard it enough. - skadoosh_007

STOP INSULTING CLOSER! I love closer so much and Halsey is the best thing ever! This song being overplayed is a good thing! The Chainsmokers aren't that good but Halsey make this song amazing like she is!

Hey...Closer is of 2016. RIGHT?

Kinda reminds me of that What About Us song that started getting overplayed in September 2017 and lasted into 2018. - allamassal

13 Little Do You Know - Annie Leblanc and Hayden Summerall

This is not overplayed. People obviously don't know the meaning of overplayed and overrated. This song is not overplayed. It deserves to be number one on this list! People, just listen to it!

A great song...The lyrics was awesome...Music was so romantic and should be in top three!

Never heard of it. - POWERStarz2004

I didn’t even know this was a real thing, it’s probably not played. - lovefrombadlands

14 Everyday - Ariana Grande

Am I the only one, who actually likes this song?

I actually like this song. The beat is catchy, she sounds good in the song as always, and I like Future's parts even though pretty much all he says throughout the song is everyday. - PerfectlyPink1210

This song is amazing it's catchy - HeyItzGrace

This song is plain stupid, espically future's retarded verses, what a loser song - VideoGamefan5

Well the lyrics are stupid but the beat is so catchy, they should of made greedy a single instead of everyday - HeyItzGrace

15 Paris - The Chainsmokers

Even though the year is in its beginning, car radio has been really overplaying these - VideoGamefan5

Ever thought "Closer" is trash? Maybe you've never heard this song - TheSuperBanana

The Chainsmokers has ONE good song, and this is not it. - growlbunny

This is a good song with meaning and it has an amazing beat! 10/10. - lovefrombadlands

16 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).

I like it, but it would be better without taylor swift. - DaWyteNight

17 Thunder - Imagine Dragons

Very true. - lovefrombadlands

18 No Plan - David Bowie

I apologize, but I’ve never heard this song on the radio before. - Drewman1211

19 Bodak Yellow - Cardi B

This song is annoying, they got me singing the damn lyrics, shyyt. - KianaLexi

Also, this is never played on my radio. - lovefrombadlands

20 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.

When Justin Bieber is the best part of your song, you know you've got a problem. - DaWyteNight

Annoying asf

It's good... - lovefrombadlands
