Spend any time by a pool this summer? Or in a car for a road trip? Then there is no doubt that you heard one of these songs and consequently they were stuck in your head for days on end — which is not necessarily a good thing. These are some of the songs that were overplayed this summer, and we hope will disappear as fall approaches.
“Wide Awake” by Katy Perry Like most songs released ts summer that made Ryan Seacrest’s Top 40, Perry’s song has a chorus that gets stuck in your head for days. It’s safe to say that Perry’s unusually mellow verses and chorus will make you wish you weren’t wide-awake.
“Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen The only reason to listen to this song is to understand all of the lip sync videos that were made as a result of this song.
“Lights” by Ellie Goulding Man, we wish someone wouldturn the lights out on this song. The upbeat, pop-techno hybrid melody combined with Goulding’s breathy and high-pitched voice are enough to drive a person insane after more than one or two listens.
“Glad You Came” by the Wanted This is one of those songs tht makes us wish we didn’t have ears. The techno-pop song will get stuck in your head for hours … and doesn’t deserve to be there.
“Wild Ones” by Flo Rida Flo Rida returned this ummer with this doozy. The entire thing practically consists simply of the phrase “Yeah, I heard you were a wild one.” Enough said.
“Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye This song sounds great the first time you hear it. So great that you pay the $1.29 for the song on iTunes. However, after listening to it over and over again, we’re so sick of it that we wish it would fly into oblivion and never return.
“Payphone” by Maroon 5 Most of us will fondly remember Maroon 5’s days of “She Will Be Loved” forever. However, this new single makes us want to stick our heads in the ground. Lead singer Adam Levine has too high of pitch in his voice throughout the entire track, making it very hard to sing along.
