Spotify Most Streamed 50 Songs & 50 Albums of 2010 (aggregated overall data)

#1, #2, #3: it's a Gaga Gaga Gaga's world

What:
Do you wanna some pop? Spotify just revealed the most streamed albums and songs of 2010. They compiled lists for UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Spain, Netherlands and France and made nice spotiplaylists for each country (here you find everything). I made something different. A double super-overall-chart (songs & albums), with data aggregated from the seven local lists.

How:
The numerical creation of the playlists was quite simple. I took each Top 100 chart and assigned one point for the 100th song/album, two points for the 99th, three for the 98th and so on. Then I collected all these data on a spreadsheet page, aggregating points taken by each song or album. It's more a game than a perfect ranking. I rated all the countries the same. Number one song in UK gained 100 points, just as #1 in Sweden, France or Netherlands. Likely, these countries have a rather different volume of subscribers, but I wanted to have a single overall Spotify playlist and this was my best idea of making it. Don't take it as something official.  

One more thing about the albums playlist. Actually Spotify counted the singles and maxi-singles as albums, too. This is interesting, because it helps you realize how singles are getting more and more important (and streamed) than albums. If a single gets a better position than an album, I think it means that that song had been streamed more than all the songs of the album (example: more people listened to Shakira's single FIFA anthem Waka Waka than to all the songs of Florence + The Machine's Lungs). Anyway, I believe that a good album playlist is made with albums, not with singles. So I excluded all the singles from the albums playlist (I left the titles on the blog post - below - to make you know how these singles ranked). 

Hope I explained it in a comprehensible way. Now enjoy a wild orgy of mainstream. :o)

P.S. Ah, Black Eyed Peas got 725 points (more than the logical maximum of 700) because in France both  normal and deluxe edition ranked in the Top 100.
