10 Most Overplayed Dance Songs, Summer 2012

So after listening to lots of DJ mixes, internet radio, and Satellite radio I realized that certain Dance songs get heavy play. So, like my Most Overplayed Songs lists, I've decided it was time to make one just about Dance music.

My biggest caveat about making this list is where I would draw the line between Dance music and Pop music.  There's a lot of music on the radio that is Pop music first, but does have a Dance music back bone.  For instance, Rihanna, who's teamed up with Calvin Harris on We Found Love, that's like a grey area, but I would sway that more towards the Pop side of things and be kept off this list... but the Chuckie remix of that song I would place on this list.  I would also tend to think that a Dance record that breaks through to the Pop side would also be on this list.  Then again, I can't really tell you where I would draw the line... this is my list.

With that said, if you're a DJ or an aspiring one, these are the Dance songs I have heard the most this Summer.  Which maybe a good or bad thing, depending on your crowd.  However, I would think twice about playing all these songs in a set, especially back to back... to back to back.

On to the List of the 10 Most Overplayed Dance Songs of Summer 2012:

10) Calvin Harris feat Ne-Yo - Let's Go
Calvin Harris to kick off this list. Yup.

9) Deadmau5 - The Veldt
I like this song from the mau5 man.

8) Swedish House Mafia - Greyhound
Oh, what money can do to make an awesome video.

7) Dirty South & Thomas Gold feat. Kate Elsworth - Eyes Wide Open
One of those songs that has anthem status written all over it.

6) Skrillex - Bangarang
Of course Skrillex has to make this list.

5) M83 - Midnight City (Eric Prydz Remix)
Love this song, but so do a lot of other people... Simple as the remix is, Eric Prydz is back with another Summer anthem.

4) Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl feat. Gergi Kay - In My Mind (Axwell Remix)
Such a festival song.

3) Gareth Emery feat. Christina Novelli - Concrete Angel
Everytime I hear this song I associate it with TiĆ«sto. 
2) Afrojack & Shermanology - Can't Stop Me
If you haven't heard this song by now... you're kinda out of the Dance and even Pop music loop.
1) David Guetta feat. Sia - Titanium
Who else would top this list? This song is played everywhere, way too much. Though actually, my favorite song off the first Disc of Nothing But the Beat.
