The 2001 hit song “Can’t You Out Of My Head” by Aussie superstar Kylie Minogue had the most airplay in the 2000s, according to the UK’s Performing Right Society, who are responsible for collecting royalties for musicians.
Honestly, could a song with a more perfect title have been named the most played song? “Toxic” at number two seems just right but then three slightly odd tracks follow, Robbie Williams’ “Angels” Jamelia’s “Superstar” and Liberty X’s Just A Little.
Of course this doesn’t account for several important places people hear music besides the radio, including stores at the mall, sporting events and your friend’s house. The chart is also based on times performed, such as live covers.
Another thing wrong with this? It’s ENGLAND’s most played songs of the decade. Shouldn’t something Timberlake related be here? I mean, if this were American, surely there’d be some ‘N Sync or “Cry Me A River.”
In all the five songs were played over 875 million times and two of them, “Toxic” and “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head” were written by the same woman, Cathy Dennis. She is also responsible for “I Kissed A Girl” and the American Idol theme.
