Top 10 Most Overplayed Songs of 2018 and 2017

Songs from last year and this year (so far) that have been quite annoyingly overplayed. I don't hate any of the following songs but they're kind of annoying to hear after a while. I'm only including songs released in either 2017 (last year) or 2018 (the current year so far).

The Top Ten

1 Praying - Kesha

This song is so overplayed, and makes me wonder how so many people love this song. - RogerWatersfan1999

Every girl in high school sings this on when it comes on the radio, so annoying.

I enjoy this song but even I can admit it was very overplayed last year. - SomePersonYouHate

Indeed, it was actually overplayed to the point where it started becoming an ear worm for me and 15 songs couldn't get it out of my head. - allamassal

Not gangster it’s not rap - FollowMeNow

2 Finesse - Bruno Mars

I like this song but its overplayed - AnnieCallie

Overplayed but not terrible. - SomePersonYouHate

Kind of gangster - FollowMeNow

This is so good, though it’s starting to play a lot. - DCfnaf

3 Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift

This song is terrible. I have gone from not minding her and in fact liking some of her earlier songs to not liking her anymore. So look what you made me do. (Pun not intended) - Randomator

Stop playing this garbage! - lovefrombadlands

Overplayed and my god it's pretty terrible. And this is coming from someone that genuinely liked Taylor's older country albums. - SomePersonYouHate

Just plain horrible

7 What About Us - P!NK

This song seems to be fading away much slower than any other song that I can think of (except Shape of You of course, because that was the #1 song of 2017), because we still hear it twice or even 3 times in an outing sometimes. And it's been 8 months since it was released. - allamassal

8 Let You Down - NF

Very overplayed and it sounds like a generic Eminem song just minus the charisma and energy. - SomePersonYouHate

I didn't hear this at all. And I listen to the rap music station! - hiphopgod

Although they probably play songs like that in that type of environment to try and help people with issues. I did recently read that article on hip-hop therapy - hiphopgod

I don’t even know this song. - lovefrombadlands

9 Believer - Imagine Dragons

Overplayed like hell last year. It's not even that great of a song. - SomePersonYouHate

Overrated and not that great. - DCfnaf

This song is so overplayed. I agree. - styLIShT

Good song but overplayed - AnnieCallie

Horrible song, with useless phrases. The singer has a horrible accent when she talks.

Overplayed and obnoxious to say of the least. - SomePersonYouHate

So gangster - FollowMeNow
