I’m sure we can all agree the Lebanese have a thing for playing the living hell out of certain songs.

How many good tunes must we ruin before we realize a little variety can actually be a good thing? The next time you prepare a playlist, do us all a favor and make sure none of these songs are included.

1. "Yeah" by Usher

I know what you’re thinking: major throwback! You got that right. I bet you still have all the lyrics memorized. What does "A-town down" even mean?

2. "Candy Shop" by 50 Cent

I’m sure everyone had a blast with this one. 50 Cent, thanks for stealing the innocence from the Lebanese population. “Licking lollipops” no longer means enjoying our Chupa Chups.

3. "Ridin’ Dirty" by Chamillionaire

Everyone knows this one. Especially the guys driving around blasting it in their cars 24/7. It died pretty fast and while many old songs make me feel nostalgic, I’ll never request to hear this one again.

4. "Talk Dirty to Me" by Jason Derulo

Every pub, club, house party, beach, and car ride has offered a venue for people to go wild to this song. It’s still a major hit if you ask me.

5. "Gangnam Style "by PSY

Thanks to PSY we all got a kick out of something we didn't understand. Both kids and adults were doing the famous dance and pretending like they knew the lyrics.

6. "Gangsta" by Kat Dahlia

Her lyrics are meaningful and I agree with everything she says but enough is enough. Besides, being gangsta “don’t impress me none.”

7. "Stereo Love" by Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina

How did we even like this to begin with?

8. "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO

This song was so influential that people were walking around in shutter shade glasses. *Shudders*

9. "Happy" by Pharrell Williams

If this one didn’t have you smiling, you’re a soulless fool. Everyone in Lebanon has danced to this song at least once. Even old men trying to balance with a cane had a blast shaking their junk to it.

10. "Single Ladies" by Beyoncé

I don’t think I’ve been to a single engagement party or wedding without hearing this song. We get it: he liked it and he put a ring on. Can you stop bragging to your single friends already?
