Gotye and Fun. Top Spotify Charts in 2012
 
Gotye's hit "Somebody I Used to Know" is Spotify's most played song of the year, Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" and "We Are Young" by fun. are second and third, respectively.

No shit?

Rysker6 11/29/12 02:09 PM

Really thought "Call Me Maybe" would have been number 1.

rbf737 11/29/12 02:10 PM

I wonder what he'll do with that $200.

Phil507 11/29/12 02:23 PM

Gotye = totally deserved. Great single, great album. A rare time when our country champions slightly weird but good pop music.

Call Me Maybe is an example of pop done great. Song is still enjoyable IMO. I used to like the Gotye song but heard it way too much. I hated that fun song the first time I heard it and now I despise it. Their new single Some Nights is absolutely wretched IMO, one of the most obnoxious radio songs I've heard in years.

Djentleman 11/29/12 02:54 PM

call me maybe sucks, the other 2 are great

SpyKi 11/29/12 02:58 PM

good, to see some good music at the top of the charts for once. Love all three songs.

CavanaughPark 11/29/12 03:26 PM

So sick of all of these. Ugh. Overplayed.

pretty sure I disagree with everything you say usually, but you nailed this one.

that fun song is terribly written

Well, congrats to these guys... They probably made about $10 off those numbers! Spotify=RIP OFF for artists.

Beat me to it.

I enjoy all these songs. It is nice to not have to hear Lil Wayne all over.

Charles777 11/29/12 04:41 PM

fun. should've gotten huge with the first album. Some Nights is just not good at all.

Spotify is at least a slight deterrent from pirating, so hardly a ripoff, I'd say.

Archael 11/29/12 05:55 PM

fun. > gotye easily

but both their new albums are crap. kimbra >>>>>>> both of them

Funny how it's the opposite for me. Love that fun. song immediately and I hated the Gotye song just as immediately. Still do for the both of them, although Some Nights isn't that great of an album.

I have mixed feelings about Call Me Maybe though.

mbao 11/29/12 06:00 PM

man, I was really hoping "Some Nights" would edge out "We Are Young" by now. I like both, but I feel that "Some Nights" is just so much more noteworthy.

Despite my earlier post, I do agree with this. It's great to have a set of relatively normal and level-headed acts top the charts after years of LWs, Nicki Minaj's, etc.

Come on people you're on Spotify,find new songs and discover new bands.

"Call Me Maybe" is brilliant.

Yeah we are at ends a lot but I'm glad we agree on this one. Even though I hate We Are Young I can at least see how it could be a sing a long anthem or something and it doesn't sound typical to radio. Can't say the same for Some Nights, song just sounds like a mess and parts of it sound like they're deliberately trying to annoy the listener.

I'm coming from the opposite end to that guy in that I think I generally agree with you and think you have good taste but Some Nights is the best song on my AOTY, and pretty close to my favourite song of the year. It's fucking brilliant.

How does "most played song of the year" work when this year isn't over?

I assume that was a joke...

Anyways, "Call Me Maybe" is the best of these songs sadly.

hiddentrack 11/30/12 07:38 AM

Best Call Me Maybe cover I've heard.

Can't believe Call Me Maybe wasn't number 1

I always do.

Dan1234 11/30/12 11:17 AM

i love how so many people are saying these songs are so overplayed and they're tired of listening to them when i've never heard any of these songs lol

WeltallAY 11/30/12 11:40 AM

No problemo, different strokes for different folks ::hug::

tym 11/30/12 12:59 PM

why all the fun hate? Some Nights is easily in my top 5 if not best album of the year. It doesn't jive with most of my usual music sensibilities, it's just an incredibly well written album

Wow. This was awesome!

wtfjaked 11/30/12 10:09 PM

I hate all of these songs. Never liked any of Fun.'s latest album. Call Me Maybe sounds like it should've been sung by a 15 year old girl. Gotye is just meh.
