Spotify has released its list of the “Top 100 Most Popular Tracks of 2012,” with Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” topping the list. Here are the top ten:

1. Gotye featuring Kimbra — "Somebody That I Used to Know"
2. Carly Rae Jepsen — "Call Me Maybe"
3. Fun. featuring Janelle Monáe — "We Are Young"
4. Flo Rida — "Whistle"
5. Flo Rida featuring Sia — "Wild Ones"
6. Train — "Drive By"
7. Nicki Minaj — "Starships"
8. Maroon 5 featuring Wiz Khalifa — "Payphone"
9. David Guetta featuring Sia — "Titanium"
10. Loreen — "Euphoria"

Jezebel’s Laura Beck was outraged with the results. She wrote, “Goyte's ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ absconded with Pop Princess Carly Rae Jepsen's Rightful Crown on Spotify's Top 100 Most Popular Tracks of the Year list. Unacceptable!” However, she did admit to being “guilty of loving every single one of these songs.”

What about you SodaHeads? Which of these hit tracks is your favorite?

    I liked it when triple J was playing it then the commercial networks killed it like they kill any good song, by playing it every hour.

    it truly is a tough choice cuz i like the majority of the songs, but i'd be lying if i didn't burst into song every time "call me maybe" came on. it was the first overplayed song that didn't annoy me every time i heard it. props carly rae, u won me. lol

    I don't know the others, accept for "whistle" which disturbs me.

    This and Gotye's song are quite enjoyable. I have a guilty pleasure for "Call Me Maybe." No idea why.

    The others I haven't even heard.

    I chose the only one I know. I stopped listening to the radio a long time ago, I don't watch TV either and I have something called personal taste in music (I don't need some list to tell me what songs I should listen to).

    All of the list sucks.....badly. This is the only half decent song...and even it's not that great.

    Even so....how I wonder how spotify managed to screw up so badly...and forget...



    I'm not terribly a fan of the song, it is catchy, but I do like the music video. He's completly ridiculous. The fact that this video is so unserious and funny is what makes it good.

    None of them are actually my FAVORITE, but I guess Gotye is okay. I'm more into Daft Punk, Arctic Monkeys, The Last Shadow Puppets, and Gary Clark Jr.

    But I have to say I prefer Tiesto's mix of the song over the original. The original's nice and mellow, but the Tiesto version of it has a lot of energy.

    True story- I'm a hipster because I liked fun and it was my own thing like shhh no one else knows, but suddenly
    they're blowing up like a balloon with a grenade inside.
    I still like their music so it's okay.

    Oh what the hell, man? I clicked Gotye! He's the most tolerable. Which isn't saying much considering this IS the "Popular" Music scene.

    Gotye! Great song, and I'm not sick of it yet despite hearing it in grocery stores, elevators and on every LA radio station constantly

    'Somebody that I used to know' has been ridiculously overplayed, so even though I like the song I cant stand it any more.
    So this one won for me because it doesn't drive me insane.

    It was close between that and We Are Young.

    Also, that music critic doesn't know good music. My god. Call Me Maybe sucks.

    It's not about taste. It's about lyrics and composition. For instance, I don't like Lady Gaga's music, but she does write good songs. Call Me Maybe is not a good song.
  • Sour Dime disclaimer 2012/12/03 21:17:10
    Sour Dime
    I know, some like those lyrics and composition. You don't have to. Personally I don't consider Insane Clown Possie people let alone what they do music but people like what they do and it is music to them. You have no idea how much it hurt saying that.
