I might be starting to sound like a broken record with my criticism of the unimaginative songwriting taking place in pop music as of late, but I don't care, someone needs to point out the parody-esque level the situation has reached.

All of the following songs were released in the past 2 years, experienced some level of success for the most part and feature the lyrics "put your hands up" or "put your hands in the air" somewhere in the pre-chorus or chorus. To make matters even worse, almost all of these songs will also feature other overused cliche lines such as "party all night", "party like a rockstar", "we be on the floor", "dj turn it up", "play the music loud", "tonight we're getting down" and more.

Seriously, if you have some time to kill and want a laugh, listen to the first minute of the following songs one after the other.

Chris Willis - Louder

Israel - Party Up

Jennifer Lopez - On The Floor

Kylie Minogue - Put Your Hands Up

Chris Brown - Yeah 3x

Maino - Let It Fly

Jay Sean - Hit The Lights

Elen Levon - Naughty

Taio Cruz - Dynamite

DJ Felli Fel - Boomerang
