1. “Le7els,” by Avicii.
Photos of signs banning DJs from playing it have gone full-on meme—why do you continue to torture us???
2. “Somebody That I Used to Know” (any remix), by Gotye featuring Kimbra.
Every radio station, every hour, every club, every DJ set. Twice.
3. “Sexy and I Know It,” by LMFAO.
Making awkward and fairly nauseating banana hammocks totally acceptable and embraceable.
4. “Gangnam Style,” by Psy.
So catchy we’re beginning to twitch. Perhaps it’s time to notify the Centers for Disease Control?
5. “In My Mind,” by Feenixpawl.
The new mark of success is when hamsters dance in a commercial to your track.
6. “Calling” by Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso.
Mer, mer, mer. Mer-mer, mer, mer, mer, mermermermermermermermermermerMERmermer.
7. Anything by Rihanna.
Yeah, it’s a repeat from last year’s list because remixes of her songs are still on repeat.
