'Frozen' Director Apologizes for 'Let It Go': Vote for the Year's Most Annoying Song

Music video for Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" single released August 18, 2014.

Jennifer Lee -- the Oscar-winning director of Frozen -- is now one of the most successful female directors in Hollywood. But sometimes with great power comes great guilt. And thanks to the continuing runaway success of Frozen with children worldwide, Lee now has both.

"A year ago, I'd meet people who, when they found out who I was, they'd say, 'Oh, we love the songs! We sing them all the time,'" Lee tells The Hollywood Reporter. "Now they're like, 'Yep, we're still listening to those songs.' I've gone from, 'Thank you,' to, 'Sorry!'"

Even though it came out in 2013, "Let It Go" remained one of 2014's most ubiquitous songs. And for many, that catchy showtune grew into the unavoidable bane of their existence.

But "Let It Go" wasn't the only irritatingly catchy earworm to blanket pop culture in 2014. Below, we've rounded up some of the year's most inescapably melodic songs -- wonderful tunes that are almost too catchy to deal with after repeated listens. Not all of them were released this year, but like "Let It Go," they certainly helped define 2014.
