Where is it coming from (who is Tanooki10?) and why is Girls Like You #5? :deadbanana4:

 

Thoughts?

It's pretty accurate minus GLY. The absolutely absurd amount of radio play (which is the least relevant it has ever been since its creation) that GLY received and continues to receive is the only reason its up there. All the other songs on that list slayed all metrics.

Yes it is.

sales radio streams combined.

Rihanna Adele and Carly jetson being the female solo trinity 

 

cardi having the top 3 female rap songs of the decade (I’ve seen the top 100 list)

 

Girls like you might hit #4 at best

 

hopefully shape of you can reach #2

WFL looks too high as well to me. It was big but there are some others songs that were bigger than it (US), just like Firework which is at like #40 of their list.

It has almost 2.5b views on YouTube and almost a billion streams on other platforms 

 

it also has 1m ish in sales 

 

radio isnt the least relevant now it’s still quite relevant 

 

sales are the thing that are the least relevant it’s ever been as it used to be the main driver

This.

Also, Despacito seems out of place since it was a gargantuan hit but didn't really last in the US outside of that summer.

 

I'm surprised Katy (Firework, Roar, Dark Horse), Taylor (Shake It Off, Blank Space), and Drake (One Dance, God's Plan) aren't in that top 10, which would seem much more accurate IMO.

Nah firework was smothered by 4 other hit songs from that era which takes away from recurrent play. See call me maybe.

 

we found love had the benefit of being the hit of that era and had throwaway singles before and after it that didn’t take too much shine from it.

And streams weren't as high 5-9 years ago so it could go both ways

It's 11x Platinum in the US, WFL and Firework were released around the same period and Firework outdid WFL in the US.

Yes sales were much more a part of many of the songs from earlier this decades ranks whereas now streams are but what’s been leveled and the most consistent is radio in terms of its weight

Ok...I don’t think I you get the totality of things

 

We found love was played on every format and is her signature hit of this decade and overall better replay and recurrent value whereas firework does better in the summer.

 

Also it didnt have to compete with as many hits as katy had earlier this era.

 

notice uptown funk a one of single and shape of you having lesser successful singles before/directly after it kept shape of you as a focus.

 

people remember we found love from that era they don’t remember any of the other songs. People remember st least 3 of the 7/8 songs from teenage dream thus time is split between those

Are you making this claim based on sales?

Airplay can't stop being weighted differently with the panel changes so I don't get how hits' airplay performances are supposed to be compared.

It’s always nice to have a one hit wonder song make the top 10. I wonder if that happened in the 80s 90s 00s

This is accurate Hot 100-wise only obviously.

Well the only reason Firework is higher in certifications is because it had higher sales which drove certs a lot more then. WFL did better than Firework and continues to do better than Firework in recurrent play as well as streams today.
