‘Member back long ago in 2019? The year where Dance Monkey by The Tones and I topped the list of most played songs pretty much every month? In our most recent musical update, that hasn’t changed much, with the Australian hit song featured in the Top 5 of Europe, the US and Oceania. For the most popular songs of yesteryear, be sure to check Top played-along-songs 2019 too!

December wouldn’t be December without Christmas songs. Especially in Europe, the merry jingles were played like there’s no tomorrow, but Asia too had a fit of the Christmas spirit. We can find the multilingual Christmas song Family is Forever in fourth place. 

The holiday season is also the perfect time for some good old binge-watching. Would that be the reason The Witcher and Olivia Rodrigo from High School Musical: The Musical: The Series are prominently in the Top 5? Our powers of deduction say “Elementary, dear Watson.”

We can find a lot of local heroes in the southern hemisphere. In South America for example, where Rauw Alejandro from Puerto Rico is responsible for the amazing feat of being listed in the Top 5 twice with the same song. The original version takes first place and the unplugged version came in fourth.
