Ever wondered what songs other users are chordifying? Does the mere thought keep you awake at night and distracted throughout the day? Well, good news: your days of pondering are over! We’ve been busy compiling a list of the songs you’ve all been playing and created a top 5 of chordified songs per continent.
Adele’s monster hit Hello is still rocking first place in both the US and Europe and it also seems like there’s a growing number of Beliebers out there.
David Bowie’s sad, recent and final departure to outer space also left a mark on the list. We salute you, you steely-eyed Rocket Man!
So without further ado, we present to you, the January Top 5 per continent:
Santana ft. The Product G&B – Maria Maria
Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit
Kelly Clarkson – Breakaway
Snakehips ft. Tinashe, Chance The Rapper – All My Friends
Jon Pardi – Trash A Hotel Room (Live From Rdio Sessions)
Tune in next month for brand new results!
The rules & the metrics
To get the most relevant and least puzzling results, we’ve laid down a couple of ground rules for filtering all the chordified songs. First off, we’ve used Google Analytics and YouTube (since it’s the most popular platform). And because there are a lot of versions and variations of songs on a gazillion different channels, we’ve only counted the songs from official accounts and channels. The result is a big pile of songs, filtered across four continents/regions.
And a final note for those who are worried about privacy or possibly somewhat ashamed of their guilty pleasures: it’s all big data, not individual results. If you secretly want to learn to play the entire Frozen soundtrack, don’t worry, we can’t trace it back to you!
