It is that time of year again. For the past four years, I have put together the ranking of the top songs for that calendar year.
As in year’s past, some of my “regulars” are in the chart. (Train, P!nk, Zac Brown Band) but it is Ed Sheeran who earned my most listened track with Lego House.
Let’s start with the most popular individual songs:
- Lego House – Ed Sheeran (25 plays)
- Booty Voodoo – Lee Coulter (21 plays)
- California 37 – Train (15 plays)
- All I Ever Wanted – Train (13 plays)
- Feels Good at First – Train (13 plays)
- This’ll Be My Year – Train (13 plays)
- Drops of Jupiter – Train (12 plays)
- Drive By – Train (12 plays)
- Against the Wind – Bob Seger (12 plays)
- Let it Go – Zac Brown Band (12 plays)
- Let Me Down Easy – Billy Currington (12 plays)
- Gym Class Heroes – Stereo Hearts (feat. Adam Levine) (12 plays)
- Do What U Do – P!nk (11 plays)
- Chicken Friend – Zac Brown Band (11 plays)
- Pretty Good and Drinkin’ Beer – Billy Currington (11 plays)
- Come Back Song – Darius Rucker (11 plays)
- Like My Dog – Billy Currington (11 plays)
- Mermaid – Train (11 plays)
- Bruises – Train (11 plays)
- Lou’s Got the Flu – Roger Miller (11 plays)
- Train shatters the charts with 7 songs in the top 10 – the most ever. Previous record was 5 in the 2010 chart by P!nk and also the 2011 charts by Zac Brown Band
- California 37 – Train repeats (#8 last year and #3 this time around)
- A song I have loved for nearly five years Booty Voodoo by Lee Coulter made its first appearance in my Top Songs list. It may have had something to do with Dawn and I going to see him perform in Austin.
- Last year all the top 20 songs had over 20 plays, this year only two.
- This’ll Be My Year – Train moves up from #11 last year to #6
- Feels Good at First – Train moves up from #7 last year to #5
- P!nk returns to the individual song chart after taking a year off
- Drive By – Train dropped out of the top spot down to #8
- Chicken Friend – Zac Brown Band dropped from #3 down to #14
- Come Back Song – Darius Rucker fell from #6 to #16
- Train had 7 songs in the list after having 11 last year.
- 2011 Top Songs
- 2010 Top Songs
It appears from this chart that Train will likely grab the top spot for the Artists of the Year… but that will come in a future post.
