The music-identifying app Shazam released a list of ‘The 10 Most Shazamed Songs of All Time.’   As a DJ, it was always a compliment when someone came up to the booth and asked, “Who sings this song?”  The equivalent of that today is when someone holds up their phone in the air!

Here’s the list, along with the number of times they’ve been tagged:

1. “Wake Me Up”, Avicii . . . 22.3 million Shazams

2. “Blurred Lines”, Robin Thicke, with T.I. and Pharrell . . . 20.1 million

3. “Lean On”, Major Lazer with MØ and DJ Snake . . . 20.1 million

4. “Somebody That I Used to Know”, Gotye with Kimbra . . . 19.9 million

5. “Let Her Go”, Passenger . . . 19.6 million

6. “Rather Be”, Clean Bandit with Jess Glynne . . . 18.8 million

7. “Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)”, OMI . . . 18.7 million

8. “Thinking Out Loud”, Ed Sheeran . . . 18.7 million

9. “Take Me to Church”, Hozier . . . 18.6 million

10. “Thrift Shop”, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis with Wanz . . . 16.1 million

Adam thought it would be fun to have The Morning MIX guess as to what these songs were and it kind of backfired!  It was good for a laugh though:
