Most Overplayed Songs From Each Decade


Pop songs that get stuck in your head aren’t created by accident. There’s a science to creating a sensational song. That’s why they all sound the same! The music industry knows what chords to play, how fast to play them, and what words to sing. It’s a science they have perfected that makes them money and ruins your day at the same time.

You’ll see a lot of the same things in these songs. The chorus repeats itself a thousand times. The lyrics are kind of gloomy and romantic. The chorus is perfect for singing along with — which you’ll definitely end up doing before you even realize that the song is stuck in your head. Typically, we like these songs for a few days before we realize: “Oh no! This is another Top 40 hit. It’s going to be played so many times I’ll end up hating it.” And by then, it’s too late.

Here’s a list of songs we can’t stand even if we loved them the decade they came out. They might have been decent at one point, but they are way beyond ruined now. Do you agree with us? Are you sick of hearing these songs on the radio? Or will they never get old? Let us know!
