The 8 Most Overplayed Songs of 2016

We can’t wait for the 2017 edition.

| January 4, 2017

4. Paasa (T.A.N.G.A.) – Yeng Constantino


There’s something about Yeng Constantino’s genius that makes people love putting her songs on repeat, often to ingratiating results. Well, here we are in 2016, with Yeng being a full-grown 28-year old woman who still can’t say “tanga.” More than any other OPM song this year, this was definitely one of the most overplayed on the radio, though to be fair, with good reason.


3. PPAP – Pico Taro


Do I need to explain this? Auggghhhhh.


2. Wag Ka Nang Umiyak – Gary Valenciano


Thanks to the meme that jammed Gary V’s take on the Sugarfree original for “Ang Probinsyano,” the last chorus of this song has become so overplayed whenever something remotely important happens at all. You know it ended up being past its shelf life by the time they ran with the gag in “Super Parental Guardians.”

This meme went full circle when Gary V himself did his own version. There was nowhere to go but down from here:


Gary V wins the internet.


1. Closer – The Chainsmokers


This song. Lordy, this song. It just refuses to die, because people insist on playing it again and again and again and again and again until it’s stuck in your head and now your entire day is ruined. Not even them mangling their own song when they performed it live could stop people from insisting on playing this ear rubbish again and again. This is pretty much the “Thinking Out Loud” of 2016, and you have to admit that is one heck of a step down.

I wish I could just cease listening to The Chainsmokers, but I, I, I can’t stop. No I, I, I can’t stop.
