Uke Tunes

Uke-ifying my favourite songs

2015 most popular songs

Leave a comment

As I did last year, I thought it would be fun to have a look back at the website stats and see what were the most popular songs on this site over the past 12 months, based on the number of downloads of songsheets.

The two songbooks that I published back in the summer (Uketunes Volume 1, and the 1980s subset) seemed to go down very well, which is great, But for individual songs, the top 5 looks as follows:

  1. Baker Street, by Gerry Rafferty
  2. Lost Stars, by Adam Levine or Kiera Knightley
  3. Look At Miss Ohio, by Gillian Welch
  4. Rhinestone Cowboy, by Glen Campbell
  5. Sugar Town, by Nancy Sinatra

Baker Street and Rhinestone Cowboy are no surprises, both being at the same places in the top 5 last year. The popularity of Lost Stars surprised me a bit, but may have something to do with it’s nomination for Best Original Song in the 2015 Academy Awards, and being covered in the UK by the winner of The Voice. But both Sugar Town and (particularly) Look At Miss Ohio are surprises to me at being so popular. But just go to show what great taste you guys have!
