This happens a lot when a song is often played on the radio.

Maybe you have heard that song so many times so you don’t want to listen to it anymore.
It is boring. This happens when songs are overplayed, or played too much.

[Example] I am so tired of that song.

Or similarly, it has the same meaning but,

[Example] I am so sick of that song.
