Summertime is a time for new music. Fresh hits with that beachy feel should pervade the radio waves at all times. But of late, I've noticed many top summer hits are more annoying than ever. Is the heat getting to me? Or are you annoyed, too? Check out what I think are the summer's worst and most annoying or overplayed hits.

1. "California Girls" by Katy Perry

I liked Katy Perry better in her "Hot 'n Cold" stage. Once she hit "Waking Up in Vegas" (which the radio stations still play to the death), I lost a little interest. With the addition of "California Girls," Katy Perry disenchanted me even more. It's not that the song is annoying, but it's not all that catchy, either. Maybe that's why I don't like it - I can't love it or hate it.

2. "Your Love is My Drug" by Ke$ha

Talk about annoying. And you thought "Tik Tok" was bad? Ke$ha talks about hitting her head against a wall in the first verse. By the chorus, she's got me wishing she would hit it a little harder next time. The beginning, a cross between rap, music-speak and who knows what else, couldn't get any more on my nerves. The chorus itself isn't half bad melodically, but it hardly makes up for the rest of a painfully annoying, overplayed hit.

3. "Baby" by Justin Bieber

I hate to pick on a kid younger and smaller than me, but really. He's all of 16, tops? Singing a song about his baby girl when he's probably only been with her a week is... well, it just doesn't do too much for me.

4. "Somebody to Love" by Justin Bieber

The song starts out sounding so promising... then a little girl's voice kicks in when I was expecting Usher or Jason Derulo. Whoops, that's a guy's voice? Whodathunk.

5. "Falling to Pieces" by The Script

This one's not necessarily annoying; I'm just getting sick of hearing it played over. And over. And over again. Plus, the lead singer reaches unnaturally high pitches in the chorus. Otherwise, it's a great sing-a-long.

6. "Can't Be Tamed" by Miley Cyrus

I like Miley Cyrus almost as much as Justin Bieber. Which is to say, pretty much not at all. Then when she adds a bratty, immature attitude to her song when we all are well aware she's that way in real life just makes me want to punch the button on the stereo.

7. "Imma Be" by The Black Eyed Peas

Is anyone else dog-tired of hearing Fergie's relentless "Imma be, Imma be, Imma be" throughout the verse? Because I certainly am. I like both her and better solo than together, and this song's no exception. "Meet Me Halfway" is far superior.
