Music search service Shazam has compiled a rating of the 100 most popular songs of the entire existence of the application. The first line was taken by the track Dance Monkey by the Australian singer Tones and I. The song was released quite recently, and during this time it has already been searched for more than 33 million times.
Robin Schultz and Lilly Wood & The Prick’s 2014 hit “Prayer in C” took second place in the ranking. And on the third line was the composition Let Her Go by the British singer Passenger. The top five also included Swedish DJ Avici’s Wake Me Up and Major Lazer’s Lean on musical trio.
The top five most listened to songs are as follows:
- Tones and I, “Dance Monkey”
- Robin Schulz, “Lilly Wood & the Prick “Prayer in C””
- Passenger, “Let Her Go”
- Avicii, “Wake Me Up”
- Major Lazer
It is likely that you will have a question about why Shazam has become the indicator by which the most popular songs in the world are determined?
The answer is not as simple as it might seem at first glance. The fact is that Shazam is a unique service. It is used to search for songs. Simply sing a tune or a few lines of a song and this music streaming service will find the song you’re looking for.
This service may be needed if you do not know the name of the song, but it stuck in your memory and you remember a few lines or just a melody. So you sang it or sang the memorable lines of the song – and you got what you were looking for for so long, not knowing that you can just use modern technologies and shift all your worries to Shazam.
So, the rating of this music streaming service will probably be the most accurate, because it displays the songs that users searched for most often and most of all. The error may be that not everyone uses Shazam. But this does not change the overall picture in the music market.
It is only natural that music fans are looking for exactly those songs that they like and are in demand.
