As someone who spends a significant part of the day listening to the radio, whether I’m at work or in the car, I’ve decided to switch up the traditional Skirt playlist post a bit and feature the Anti-Playlist – that is, the top five songs I don’t want to hear anymore. The songs that lost their flavor fast. The ones that, no matter how hard we try, we just can’t seem to escape hearing on a daily basis.
“Someone Like You”, Adele
No surprise here. And while I’m a huge fan of Adele and think her six Grammy’s were well deserved, this song grew stale pretty fast after hearing it on an almost constant loop on literally every radio station. Do yourself a favor and listen to this less saturated re-mixed version instead: http://ow.ly/9sjef
“Moves Like Jagger”, Maroon 5
I was never a fan of this song (nor Maroon 5 in general) which might make it being overplayed so much worse for me. Sadly, not even a remix or mashed-up “Glee” version can make this track more enjoyable.
“We Found Love”, Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris
It makes me sad to add this to the list because I loved this song so much when it first came out. I’m obsessed with Rihanna, and don’t ever make a playlist without at least one of her songs on it because they never get old to me – until now. Luckily, the song helped popularize Calvin Harris and turned me on to more songs of his, like this: http://ow.ly/9sl6J
“Sexy and I Know It”, LMFAO
From the lyrics to the official music video, this song is terrible on a lot of levels. Whenever it comes on the radio, I can’t seem to change the station fast enough.
“The One That Got Away”, Katy Perry
Like Adele, Katy’s a repeat offender when it comes to hit songs that are overplayed. The shelf life of her songs is becoming so short thanks to so many radio stations playing them every chance they get. So, while it’s still somewhat fresh, enjoy her soon-to-be-overdone “Part of Me” instead: http://ow.ly/9srwr
