Stay at home and play, yes sirree! That’s what we have been up to in April. But what did we play? In these dire times, let our Top 5 be your tower of strength, a moment of relief and support in the form of the most played songs in the world. Who are this month’s eye-catchers?

A 23-year-old Scot, who listens to the name Lewis Capaldi, is listed in two Top 5s: Europe and Oceania. And it’s the lyric video that’s getting the high scores. Which makes a lot of sense, when you think about it. Singing along with Capaldi’s dark emotional lyrics can help us ventilate those bottled up quarantine frustrations. Never suppress your emotions, let them out as much as you can! Extra points if your performance is as powerful as the original.

Who will win the price for most sunny summer song this month? Is it the New Zealand band L.A.B. with “In the Air” or is it the Rwandan Andy Bumuntu with his song “On Fire”? You be the judge.

Lastly, we have one tip for everyone who has a birthday coming up: surprise the birthday girl or boy with an online serenade. Like the “Ricky Baker Birthday Song” from the movie “Hunt for the Wilderpeople.” Many people had this idea already, which is why we find this song in the Top 5 of Oceania.

PS Lewis Capaldi covered Bradley Cooper & Lady Gaga – you know, that song that was in the Top 5 for months. This is the first time in a while that the soundtrack form “A Star Is Born” is not in the list, so for everyone who can’t go without, here is the Lewis Capaldi version of “Shallow.”
