For me it's Titanium By David Guetta ft. Sia. Seriously over played, i listen to a lot of Radio and there has not been a day gone by where i have not heard this song since it's release. The thing is it's not even good, it awful, and the woman singing in this song has an awful singing voice.

So what song do you think has been the most over played of the year ?

Can't be anything else but Gangnam Style, by now.

apparently, `titanium` was the 6th most played song`s on radio last year in the uk. i don't listen to a lot of radio, so i cant say anything has particularly ticked me off. although, when i read that list of songs most played on radio, there were a lot of songs on that list that were released in 2011. personally, i think radio should play more new music, instead of giving huge repeat plays of older radio friendly tracks.

If the year started September it probably would be.

2 somebody that i used to know - gotye
3 call me maybe - carly rae jepsen
4 payphone - maroon 5
5 next to me - emeli sandé
6 titanium - david guetta feat. sia
7 dance with me tonight - olly murs
8 moves like jagger - maroon 5 feat. christina aguilera

Call Me Maybe I would say was the most overplayed, it was on practically every hour.

The one that really annoyed me was Payphone though, simply because no-one uses payphones in this day and age and also because we don't even call them payphones here in the UK. I thought it was a silly premise for a song now everyone has a phone on them at all times.

Really? Titanium was actually the ONLY good thing David Guetta had a hand in in 2012. Plus if you honestly think she has a bad voice you need to be in a straightjacket & padded cell. Sia can sing.

But the song was made by Americans and we do call them pay phones and I see them all the time. There is one across the street from my house, at every Bart(bay area's subway system) station and in quite a lot of places where I live in California(Maroon 5 are from California). I've used them quite a few times in the past year alone when my phone is dead.

To be fair, I've had to use public telephones (whatever we call them in the UK) recently too.

I'd have to say Starships by Nicki Minaj. But the thing is, I ONLY heard it on the radio. I never heard it anywhere else (e.g. in a club, in someone else's car, at a party, at uni, etc.). But the song's radio airplay alone was so annoying, and it couldn't have happened to a less deserving song. At least a song like Somebody That I Used to Know is quite unique and extremely catchy, so you think "fair enough" when it's overplayed.

Fun's We Are Young must have been pretty close to that top 10.

And Emeli Sande's Read All About It.

I dunno what radio station we have on at work but it seems to play the same half a dozen songs over and over again and has done since I've been working there, it drives you potty. I'm well versed in the lyrics to Payphone and Black Cock, opps, I mean Black Heart and I really can't stand either of them.

Starships by Nicki Minaj for me. By the time the video of her popping her massive arse was released I was so over the damn song!

Wild Ones was another one for me. Maybe not radio play but my friend overplayed that on a trip we went on and I almost wanted to kill something everytime I heard Sia's opening vocals.

Gangnam by far, I like Meme's but Gangnam took it too far and became very boring very quickly.
I liked Titanium by Guetta and also think Sia has a gorgeous voice, though I didnt OD on that song and I have avoided mainstream radio for years so miss out on the 'stuff yer face with this lot' identiplaylist DJ's.

I have only just discovered Jessie J - Never heard Domino but adore the pay cheque song.

He must live in the 1800's. anyway even if we didn't Maroon 5 are not going to change their song title just for the UK.

I've heard Candy by Robbie Williams enough to last a life time, and then some.
Radio 2 are also obsessed with the god-awful Rolling Stones and play Doom and Gloom what feels like ten times an hour.

We Are Young, Somebody We Used To Know, Titanium and Domino are the ones that spring to mind, which is a shame, because they were brilliant songs,the first 100 times I heard them

Also Starships and Call Me Maybe, but they weren't ruined by the over playing, as I never really liked that much.
