The Top 10 Most Overplayed Songs of 2015

Rayner Reinhardt and Katrina Bucher

Music surrounds us. It’s on the radio, in the car, on TV, and even in restaurants.

There are so many great songs that get in touch with our emotions, that pump us up, or just make us wanna get up and dance.

But, let’s face the fact that the radio sometimes destroys songs, so that every time we hear them we just want to scream!

In honor of these ruined songs, let us present the Top 10 Most Overplayed Pop Songs of 2015:


  1. “Take Your Time,” by Sam Hunt

Release Date: November 24, 2014

Album: Montevallo

Even though it was released in 2014, this twist on a country song was ruined after overplaying in 2015. Don’t get us wrong, Hunt’s unique voice and intriguing pop-country single is great, but not so much when you hear it FIVE times a day.


  1. “Talking Bodies,” by Tove Lo

Release Date: January 13, 2015

Album: Queen of the Clouds

Pop Queen Tove Lo’s voice is amazing, especially in this song. But no one can deny that even her voice gets a little annoying after a while. The “Queen of the Clouds” sure does fly high on the charts but not


  1. “Thinking Out Loud,” by Ed Sheeran

Release Date: September 24, 2014

Album: X

This slower song of 2014 waltzed its way straight into 2015 and onto the radio. The beautiful combination of notes and rhythms created a special place in our hearts. Sheeran’s voice touches the souls of so many young people in this nation, but turned after too many times, it turned into one of those noises we just don’t want to hear…

  1. “Cool for the Summer,” by Demi Lovato

Release Date: July 1, 2015

Album: Confident

It was cool for a while, but Lovato’s hit single turned a little too hot for the liking of most after it was cooked on the radio over and over. We love you Demi, but your song was roasting by the end of the summer.


  1. “Honey, I’m Good,” by Andy Grammer

Release Date: November 11, 2014

Album: Magazines or Novels

I think we’re good on hearing this song for a while. While its catchy tune was fun and upbeat, it became a little too catchy. Grammer’s album was definitely a hit and we look forward to hearing some more from him, but Honey, We’re Good (for now).


  1. “Trap Queen,” by Fetty Wap

Release Date: April 22, 2014

Album: Fetty Wap

Released in 2014, this song was still on repeat in 2015. You can say it was Queen of the Charts, but soon lost its ruling over the people. The radio destroyed the song in a matter of months. Hopefully Fetty Wap can win our hearts back with a new hit single.


4. “Shut Up and Dance,” by Walk the Moon

Release Date: September 10, 2014

Album: Talking is Hard

Shut Up, Radio! Let us dance to another song, because this song sure is old after being played over and over everywhere you could possibly imagine. We’d rather Walk to the Moon than listen to this song one more time!


  1. “Cheerleader,” by Omi (Felix Jaehn Remix)

Release Date: May 19, 2014

Album: Me 4 U

We don’t cheer when this song is played anymore. But we do appreciate the use of band instruments in the song, like the trumpet. We’re definitely cheerleaders for Omi and are hoping for more musical wins any time soon.


  1. “See You Again,” by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth

Release Date: March 17, 2015

Album: Furious 7: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Hopefully, we never see this song again. This hit soundtrack from Furious 7 was used as a tribute to late Paul Walker. Although the message is very sweet, we felt that we were “seeing” the song everywhere we went. Wiz Khalifa definitely showed us a different side of himself in this song, and that’s something we’d like to see again.


And now for the Number 1 Most Overplayed Pop Song of 2015. . .


  1. “Shake it Off,” by Taylor Swift

Release Date: August 18, 2014

Album: 1989

This song was the debut of Swift’s new pop style. And for a while, it had us all jamming, but then it turned into something we just wanted to shake off. Now, we don’t mean to be haters, but we are definitely enjoying the rest of Swift’s 1989 album better than this song. Plus, we’ve got to admit, her new pop style is a swift, refreshing change from her old country sound.
