Top 10 Songs That You Loved Until They Were Overplayed


The Top Ten

1 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

I remember really digging this song when it initially came out. In an age where all songs are all autotuned crap, a song which used instruments to form a melody and was a more traditional pop song seemed fresh. And it was legitimately good, if not fantastic. However, it did to start to get annoying when it was constantly replayed. At least I'd rather have a decent song overplayed than a crap one. - Mrveteran

I did not like this song much to begin with, honestly. It's a fun song to dance to (but, then again, isn't that the sole reason why songs make it to the top of the charts these days? - there's not much depth needed). - BKAllmighty

Even if I noticed the overplay (which I don't), I would still call this the personification of perfection. I absolutely never get sick of this. - WonkeyDude98

I feel it gets better with each repeated listen.

2 Shut Up and Dance - Walk the Moon

At least this song is very good! It's a dance song that makes you want to dance, the vocals are good without having to resort to autotune & it has a self-awareness about itself that makes it intriguing but not annoying. - Mrveteran

I never liked this song. It tortured my 12-year old self. - RiverClanRocks

3 Cheerleader - Omi

Terrible song. Never liked it. When it got overplayed, I hated it more.

It soured on me, but not because of overplay. - WonkeyDude98

4 Hello - Adele

Admittedly overplay was a factor in this shrinking on me, but it wasn't because of the overplay itself, and I still like it. - WonkeyDude98

Barely heard anything about this album. I was told it was a huge hit and yet my memories of its release will be non-existent when I'm an old man, I'm sure. - BKAllmighty

It was playing simultaneously on every radio station that is pre-programmed in my car. This is when I knew the world was ending...

Even overplayed on The Pulse

9 Happy - Pharrell Williams

The only thing I don't like about this song is that the chorus line is replayed a lot in it. You could memorize the entire song with 4 listens. - Mcgillacuddy

UGH this song could've been good and it was so overplayed oh my god they ruined it.

I still sort of like it, but I used to love it until it got overplayed. - funnyuser

I'm never HAPPY when I hear this song. It's so overrated!

19 Kids of America - Kim Wilde

Interesting that this song got resurrected on numerous lists here at The Top Tens after total obscurity for 30 years, and Kim Wilde is now 55 years old. What is behind the resurgence in popularity?
