The 7 Most Overplayed Clubs Songs of 2012

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.

Best Bottle Service: Tao

If Peter Pan taught us nothing else, it’s that fairies draw sustenance from audience approval. They’re needy like that. But Tinker Bell wouldn’t have had to beg you to clap if she showed up with a bottle of vodka the way Tao’s “bottle fairies” do every night. Oh, we believe, Tao; we believe! (We also could use some more ice—would you send a busser over?) Every night, Tao’s bottle fairies fly above the din and clamor of the crowd on a mission of mercy: delivering booze to those most desperately in need. Sometimes it’s one big splash entrance.
