You just may have a new playlist to get you through the summer.
And it’s full of the most popular music of the millennium, complete with nostalgic favourites from back in university and high school.
CBC asked Neilsen Soundscan, which tracks the amount of radio plays each and every song gets across the country, to compile the Canadian songs that have received the most radio rotations of the new millennium.
From The Tragically Hip and Hedley to Shania Twain and Carly Rae Jepson, these are the 100 most played songs by Canadian artists between 2001 to present day. The songs may have been recorded earlier, but as long as they were played in the past 15 years they can make the list.
Though you probably shouldn’t get your hopes up too much, statistically speaking, Nickelback is the most played Canadian band of the new millennium. Ugh.
Highlights (and low-lights) of the list include:
100: Wave – California
84: Snow – Everybody Wants to be Like You
74: Shania Twain – That Don’t Impress Me Much
66: Tal Bachman – She’s So High
51: Bryan Adams – Summer of 69
43: Hedlye – Perfect
31: Fefe Dobson – Stuttering
25: Avril Lavigne – I’m With You
18: Karl Wolf ft. Culture – Africa
5: Nickelback – How You Remind Me
3: Finger Eleven – Paralyzer
1: Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe (is anyone surprised?)
