    Don't Stop Believin' was probably the most performed song on the hit TV series Glee which ran from 2009 to 2015 and this would also have contributed to its increased and enduring popularity in the 2010s.

    Lush Life by Zara Larsson was a massive hit in Sweden.

    With the cover of Robyn's Dancing On My Own by Calum Scott, I will assume that the original version will be pretty darn high up on the list. Maybe in the top 5?

    51. Moves Like Jagger – Maroon 5 & Christina Aguliera

    Released 2011



    It was released by A&M Octone Records on June 21, 2011, as the fourth and final single from the re-release of the group's third studio album Hands All Over (2010). The song was written by Adam Levine, Ammar Malik, Benjamin Levin, and Shellback; the latter two are also the producers. "Moves like Jagger" is a dance-pop and electropop song and is backed by synths and electronic drums. The lyrics refer to a male's ability to impress a love interest with his dance moves, which he compares to those of Mick Jagger, lead singer of The Rolling Stones.

    The song also made Aguilera the second female artist to score a number-one hit in the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s (the first being Britney Spears), which in turn made her the fifth female to score number-one singles in three different decades, after Janet Jackson, Madonna, Spears and Cher. Worldwide, it was the ninth-best-selling digital single of 2011 with sales of 7 million copies. As of 2016, the song ranks as one of the eight best-selling digital singles of all time with sales of over 15 million copies

    I recognise the song title and remember it being around forever when it was in the charts, but if it came on the radio I simply would not recognise it.

    Like many others, I'm familiar with the song title and artists, but listening to the song and it all feels alien to me.











    47. Human – Rag ‘N’ Bone Man

    Released 2016



    "Human" is a song by British singer and songwriter Rag'n'Bone Man. The song was co-written by Rag'n'Bone Man, Jamie Hartman and produced by Two Inch Punch. It was released as a digital download on 21 July 2016, through Sony Music and Columbia Records. The song is included on his debut studio album of the same name, released in February 2017. It was later used as a theme song for the American web television series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, which was released in 2018.

    On 23 December 2016, the song reached number two on the UK Singles Chart, scoring the Christmas number two of 2016. Still, the song was the most downloaded and top-selling single throughout the week, with the lack of streams influencing the overall chart position to be lower, denying the song the coveted Christmas number one. The song was certified Platinum on 17 February 2017 and 2× Platinum 21 July 2017 by the BPI. It has sold 1,269,000 combined units in the UK as of September 2017, which comprises 522,000 copies in actual sales and 75 million in streams.
