Goyte's "Somebody That I Used to Know" absconded with Pop Princess Carly Rae Jepsen's Rightful Crown on Spotify's Top 100 Most Popular Tracks of the Year list. Unacceptable!
The entirety of this sham of a top ten are:
- 1. Gotye featuring Kimbra — "Somebody That I Used to Know"
- 2. Carly Rae Jepsen — "Call Me Maybe"
- 3. Fun. featuring Janelle Monáe — "We Are Young"
- 4. Flo Rida — "Whistle"
- 5. Flo Rida featuring Sia — "Wild Ones"
- 6. Train — "Drive By"
- 7. Nicki Minaj — "Starships"
- 8. Maroon 5 featuring Wiz Khalifa — "Payphone"
- 9. David Guetta featuring Sia — "Titanium"
- 10. Loreen — "Euphoria"
Pretty predictable, and is basically just proof that we all love delicious garbage crap. I'm guilty of loving every single one of these songs, but I still wish the list was less embarrassing to humanity. I know it's based solely on Spotify's most played, but what would you want to see on it? How about the wonderful 'Man or Muppet'? Hmm.. that might've been last year but no matter because it should be on every list in every year. And there's no Frank Ocean? And what about the new Magnetic Fields, or am I showing my age? AND ALSO MY EXCELLENT TASTE IN MUSIC.
