The songs are determined by the number of playlists the songs have been added to, multiplied by the number of plays they received during 2011.
“What’s probably most interesting is that back-catalogue songs are represented just as much, if not more, than chart material,” says Kieron Donoghue, founder of ShareMyPlaylists.com. “This shows the value of older catalogues on Spotify as well as new releases.”
Indeed, the list is somewhat surprising in that the top performing tracks are 20 years old…who says the youth of today have no music taste?
Since it launched in 2009, ShareMyPlaylists has published over 60,000 Spotify playlists. The site is currently churning out 10,000 playlist plays each day, with over 100 new playlists uploaded daily
