Early morning post

Surprise, surprise… Finally time to take a look at the most played music during 2021 – all caused by the fact that the card reader at the gym not worked this morning. Result?

So what about 2021? I find that ABBA did not have the impact I might have thought, the songs are there among the most played, but far from as much as I actually though.

10th place among most played artists, only one song among the most played top 40 and next one is “I still have faith in you” on place 93. But at the same time, the ABBA album was released late in 2021, so who knows, next year might still have songs from “Voyage” on the list.

Eurovision then? Here are the top 10 most played Eurovision songs, as well at the top 5 from Melodifestivalen (the Swedish selection).

Melodifestivalen 2021 top 5 (Most played):

  1. “Still young” – Charlotte Perrelli
  2. “Behöver inte dig idag” – Klara Hammarström
  3. “Tänker inte alls gå hem” – Arvingarna
  4. “Rena rama ding dong” – Eva Rydberg & Ewa Roos
  5. “Rich” – Julia Alfrida

Eurovision Song Contest 2021 top 10 (most played):

  1. “Fallen angel” – TIX (Norway)
  2. “Adrenalina” – Senhit & Flo Rida (San Marino)
  3. “Voila” – Barbara Pravi (France)
  4. “Discoteque” – The Roop (Lithuania)
  5. “Loco Loco” – Hurricane (Serbia)
  6. “El diablo” – Elena Tsagkrinou (Cyprus)

So it’s wrapped up finally, maybe you find something new from the lists above, a song that will end up at your most played list 2022…

Now I have too rethink today, and put 60 minutes of gym somewhere during the day.
