2014 was certainly a great year for music. Many singles blew up into hits and for a while we loved every minute of it. But after the fourth, fifth and sixth time songs like “Fancy”, “Animals” and “Bang Bang” played on the radio, we started to get over it. Now that the year is ending, we’d like to share our list of overplayed songs that we’re ready to leave behind.
“Fancy” by Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX
Enough is enough. “Fancy” was the most overplayed song of 2014, hands down. It’s time for Azalea’s summer anthem to retire for good.
“Animals” by Maroon 5
We’re ready for your next single, Maroon 5. “Animals” had enough air play and the video was straight creepy.
“Trumpets” by Jason Derulo
Yes, it’s weird that your girl’s bra reminds you of a Katy Perry song. What’s next?
“All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor
We were “All About That Bass,” but we’ve moved on. We’re all “Lips Are Movin’” now.
“Timber” by Pitbull ft. Kesha
Please… we’ve heard this song blast through each ballroom at every sweet sixteen on the east coast. We need a new turn up song.
“Bang Bang” by Jessie J ft. Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj
The original can retire but the covers are still bangin’.
“Tuesday” by I Love MAKONNEN ft. Drake
Everyone was getting on “Tuesday” to the point that Makonnen dropped “Sundays” to piggyback off the success and flopped. That’s a sign to put out his other tracks that aren’t named after a day of the week.
“Dark Horse” by Katy Perry ft. Juicy J
After over 700 million views on youtube, “Dark Horse” has reached its peak. Well done, Katy Perry.
“Turn Down For What” by DJ Snake & Lil Jon
It’s time to turn down now… all the way down…
“Hot N*gga” by Bobby Shmurda
“Hot N*gga” birthed the “Shmoney Dance” and a superstar from Brooklyn. If you ask people, this may have been (over)played more than “Fancy.”
“Don’t Tell ’Em” by Jeremiah ft YG
“Don’t Tell ’Em” but this song needs to lay down to rest. The chorus was hot until we heard it so much it started making us question it. Don’t tell ’em what?
“Let It Go” by Idina Menzel
Frozen, we will let you go.
“Happy” by Pharrell Williams
“Happy” shook the entire world and the positive feedback made Pharrell shed tears on Oprah. PHARRELL. TEARS. OPRAH. This song did its job to the fullest.
“All of Me” by John Legend
We’re over John Legend’s romantic side. Where’s that wild side John? Are you holding out for 2015?
“Problem” by Ariana Grande
This song was a huge problem on the charts (in a good way) but Grande’s successful sophomore album My Everything has made this hit a has-been.
