used to describe a hit song that is played on the radio (in stores, on the internet, on iTunes, at parties, etc.) numerous times to the point of annoyance.

Typically it means to play a song so much that your interest in it degrades, but the word's meaning is not limited to just music. Almost anything that you can "play" can become less interesting if you do it too much. Video games, sports, etc.

Unless you have a strong passion for something, then you normally can do it as much as you can and your interest in it will never decay. For example, gamers that somehow main the same game for years.

A very similar word is overuse.
Example 1: (Just imagine any song playing in a car) I mean this is a good song, but it's slightly annoying now because my favourite radio station overplays it. It's like every 5 minutes they play this goddamn song.
Example 2: I used to love Carpenter Brut to a point where I couldn't stop listening to their music. But i overplayed their songs so they're not as enjoyable as I remember.

Songs that are played on the radio too many times for the average human being to physically, and mentally, bear.
Oh my god turn that 'Happy' song off, if I have to listen to another 30 minutes of radio overplay bullshit I think I'm gonna shit my pants.

This is when someone spins you that you made plans with to go be with someone else. A great lie told to keep oneself out of the dog house or look good in front of a certain group of people. Giving an elaborate excuse that's usually not true for why you can't , didn't , or won't be able to do something.
Saturday I had two girls coming over at the same time so I had to think quick and told one that my cousin was in the hospital but that was just the "underlay for the overplay" so I didn't get busted.
