The Top 10 Songs You Google-Searched Most This Year

Do you remember which songs stole your web time, and musical playlists, this year? Luckily, you don’t have to, because mega-search-engine Google has (somewhat scarily) tracked your searches for you. Google just published its annual list of the most-searched for people, events and music of 2013. And there are some surprises in the song department.

It may seem like all the music world can talk about lately is Beyonce and Kanye West, but neither Queen Bey nor Yeezus made 2013’s most popular song list. Instead, Bey’s hubby, Jay-Z, ruled Google’s web search fields: He’s the only performer with two songs in the top 10 – “Holy Grail” and “Tom Ford.”

More predictably, Katy Perry’s feel-good anthem “Roar” came in at No. 9 and Lorde’s anti-swag hit “Royals” landed at No. 4.

Those goofy “Thrift Shop” guys, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis,” haggled for No. 3 while the inescapable Miley Cyrus crushed No. 2 with “Wrecking Ball.” So what was – the unexpected — No. 1 most searched-for song of 2013? See the entire list below to find out, and compare how many of these made it into your own MyMusicCloud library.
