10 Most Overplayed Songs of 2012

2012 was sure a big year for music.  Especially songs that got way overplayed.  The top 5 of this list was very easy to make, but for numbers 6 through 10... there were a lot of songs that could easily replace them.

Just off the list: The Lumineers - Ho Hey, Black Keys - Gold on the Ceiling, Rihanna - Diamonds, M83 - Midnight City, Linkin Park - Burn It Down, Nicki Minaj - Starships and of course, Justin Bieber - Boyfriend, As Long As You Love Me

You may be surprised that the Bieb's himself didn't make the top 10. Yes, three of his songs were played way too much... but these 10 songs were played so much more.

Here are the 10 Most Overplayed Songs of 2012:

10) Ke$ha - Die Young
A song that came a little late in the year, but nonetheless it's a Ke$ha song, so it quickly rose to the overplayed list.  Expect it's overplayedness to continue on well into 2013

9) Rihanna - Where Have You Been
What would this list be without Rihanna, she puts out an album every year, so at least one of them has got to make this list.

8) Ellie Goulding - Lights
One of those songs that took a while for the world to catch on, even though we already caught on a year ago.  Once the radio got hold of it, there was no letting go.

7) Katy Perry - Wide Awake
Of course Katy Perry will grace this list... the last song to be released from her Teenage Dream album from 2010. It's actually a pretty amazing feat.

6) Fun. - Some Nights
The first of two Fun. songs to get on this list. This is my favorite song from them. Unfortunately, the radio killed it. Then killed it again.

5) One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful
Come on, to not include this boy band from Britain would be sacrilegious. This was one one of the songs that ruled Summer everywhere.

4) Fun. - We Are Young
Fun. sure had a big year. Their two songs got major air play... and We Are Young by far, is their biggest most overplayed song.

3) Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe
Bubble gum Pop at it's Bubble-ist.  Call Me Maybe was the song of Summer that just got stuck in your brain everywhere you turned.

2) Gotye feat. (Kimbra) - Somebody That I Used To Know
This song got so annoying. I couldn't take how much this song was played.  It's a shame because it is a great song.  For the first half of the year, I didn't think any other song would have topped this... until one did.

1) PSY - Gangnam Style
What else could possibly top this list?
